when i was in the headphone section of bestbuy yesterday I looked over the dre beats station...and guess what...they were broken, AGAIN, and when I inspected the break, the plastic joint looked unusually shiny, as if somebody glued the demos units back together. I can tell you, I wasn't surprised, if bestbuy has to buy the demo units, than they will never break even
I would reconsider that statement. Anyone who knows anything about Noel Lee and heard his Monster audio CDs realizes that attitude is far from the truth. Other high end companies make crap products, they simply fail to market them as well as Monster does. Such is business. Be careful about throwing out the baby w/ the bath water. Maybe you should ask Kevin the admin here why he doesn't know how to make decent IEMs since he designed the Turbine series.
