Interesting, just became aware of this thread. I've been hoping to run across some budget Asian headphones to see if the performance vs cost holds up like they do with the earbuds/IEMs, but other than the one mentioned in the first post, I'm not really aware of any off the top of my head. I think I remember KZ having a rather inexpensive headphone, but having heard a thing about it. About the hybrid phone, I really wonder how much BA can contribute in a full size headphone like that. I mean, it might be a remarkable headphone, or it might just be a gimmick.
