    I know some people would like these (or, a lot of people considering they reached their goal on Indiegogo) but I much prefer having normal headphones with cords and such. Small earbuds like that are just asking to be lost, even if they have a carrying case.

    And that's another reason why I wouldn't want those. With that money, I could buy actual headphones, or better yet, something else entirely.
    I also wouldn't wanna lose something that expensive...

    I know what you mean, i much rather feel comfortable with head phones, that fit secure over your ears. But i mean i guess not too bad to try new things. looks promising to be honest, i just saw the add here on this site so i mean oh well. :P

    But i would hope they make a new model like over head or ear hook kind too. :)

    Quality assurance isn't cheap BRUH! :P

    That what the MSRP is but pre order now is $90. I mean %44 off on preorder is like better than what will be some time later, it may take like more than a year to get a price drop.

    Disgusting things.

    I highly dislike earbuds of all sorts.
    Most of the people have disgusting ears and their earwax will stick to them.

    No, I'll keep it at me Axent wear.

    With specs like this, is bound to hurt a few brains. Or would people be too distracted by "SHINY" to care? :ph34r:
