I use iPhone and have no need for aptx. The faux leather case is nice but having something more pocketable is even better. I do like the low profile of the Anbes...I'd go for it if it was quicker to get a hold of. Originally my budget was going to be over $100, but after looking around I realized how quickly this tech is improving with all these options coming out left and right. Didn't want to splurge on something that will soon be dethroned by something $50 cheaper the next month.
