Yet another iteration of the Foster's of Japan dynamic canalphone, painfully too late as there are now at least five better alternatives on the market.

And to my mind, shame on both Sennheiser and AKG for buying somebody else's canalphone instead of designing their own. Heck, even JBL got an original housing for the Ref 220, and like AKG they're just a branch of the Harman group. When an audio company with no real headphone division like Denon can produce competitive top heaphones from Scratch, or an Audio Equation can make models outperforming the German competition at a much lower cost on their first try, then two of the world's biggest headphone companies should be able to make an original canalphone instead of just sourcing an OEM model from the Asian market.
