Please everybody, stop beating this cable thing to death--also the speculation about Meze's margins, profitability, design/development costs, etc. There are any number of venerated/endgame headphones that don't get this "dissect the mfr's costs & motives" treatment (or much less of it). This is not about personalities. Some who are posting often here about this stuff are among my favorite Head-Fi'ers. But this is getting oppressive. I'm on this thread to finally hear about users' real-world experience with this headphone: how it sounds to them, how it interacts w/a variety of sources & amps, etc.
