Nice review. I've never liked the ear buds that came with my iPod nano shuffle, but I never really liked listening to it. My youngest son, on the other hand, would probably love these, especially if the bass is as pronounced as the review states.
And any time you're listening to Steely Dan, I'm in with that so I can really visualize (auralize???) the tracks you mentioned and the review gives me a good feel for that.
I know it's possible to graph frequency response curves for speakers, but can you do the same for headphones? It doesn't seem that outlandish to wonder, but, then again, I'm not a very technical guy.
My son, though, goes through a set of ear buds about every 6 months, so I'm wondering if it'd be worthwhile to spend this much money on a pair. Oh, wait, a build quality rating of 3... probably be ruined in pretty short order. I guess I'll have to pass.
