To sweeten the deal even further our good friends at Effect Audio will be throwing in a premium cable from their Heritage Series, the LEONIDAS.

Potential Flagship Name:  Janus:  Greek god of choices, beginnings, and doorways.  Perfect name for 4 reasons:  1)  Janus has 2 faces, so on an ADEL model, which has 2 unique sound signatures, Janus describes the headphone perfectly. 2) Janus is the god of choices.  There are many IEM options out there, and instead of making that choice on your own, go with Janus.  3) Janus is the god of beginnings.  Because the Janus will likely be any audiophiles TOTL, it will allow users to begin hearing their music in the best way possible and how it was meant to be heard.  4)  Janus is the god of doorways.  The headphones will open the door for music lovers to hear their music the way it was meant to be heard.

I vote KRONOS the Titan, father of Zeus. Seems like a logical progression for a new Top-Of-The-Line.

Odysseus sounds pretty cool to me.

Odysseus is the protagonist to Homer's poem "Odyssey", a legendary hero in Greek mythology and king of the island of Ithaca. He was protrayed by Homer to be a legendary man of outstanding wisdom and shrewdness, eloquence, resourcefulness, courage, and endurance.

Edited with explainations.

Draco. Because Dragon's were extremely present throughout Greek mythology and they can be seen however the individual expresses them. I.e. stunning and elegant, or majestic and fast

Why not mix in some more ladies in the line-up? Fast cars are named after women. You don't see a lotus Elmer. It's Lotus Elise thank you very much. I'd love to see a Gaia or Cybele flagship. Kronos was deposed by Zeus, so I can't see naming a new flagship after him. Dude was gutted by Zeus, yuck. Gaia was the mother of Kronos. Cybele was the only Phrygian goddess according to Wikipedia and merged in some places with the Gaia myth. Whilst Gaia is more Greek, Cybele is a bit more musical in sound.

::Euryale::

She is one of Medusa's sisters, and, well, I've always loved that name. I can't say I'd buy a high-priced IEM just for a name, but seeing one called Euryale would sure as hell make me look for a reason to buy it. :D

While I know my ballot doesn't count, I think it should be called the Axel.
