For the color thing, I will stick with the original red. If I had to choose a color, it would be blue just like everyone else then black.
Mine arrived! After a bit of a panic with the cable (never had nice headphones before, I'm upgrading from my Grado sr80i's, my nicest so far) and a bit of scraping on the socket I managed to get things sorted out.
I'd love to write a proper review but instead I'm too busy rocking out and being amazed. These are -amazing-. No words can do justice to how happy I am right now.
