Excited to see their take on "high end" headphones. 

High price.

It's amazing what qualifies as "high end". The damn term been so watered down at this point.

Unfortunately "high end" HAS NEVER HAD AN AGREED DEFINITION--and I sure can't see one developing.:P

Let's see if they follow the usual Apple playbook: 

 

- proprietary power connector

- no cables, and no ports otherwise

- overstyled, underperforming, and unbelievably expensive. Will offer half the performance at twice the cost. 

- they will appropriate existing technology and claim they invented it. 

- they will patent its shape even if the shape has been used before

- made from the blood of hundreds of dead underpaid Chinese sweatshop workers

- will feature some kind of marketing buzzword (if it was Retina for their displays, maybe it's going to be Cochlea?) 

- will have some kind of fatal flaw that renders it useless for its intended purpose

- will only work with Apple products, and even then only if you buy a dongle

- it will be "revolutionary"

- it will have mandatory non-reversible firmware updates that halve its performance every year

- they will sue Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, Grado and others claiming that they copied their design.

 

And dozens of slobbering zombie Apple fanboys will queue for weeks outside their local Apple Temple for the privilege of being ripped off by these hucksters.
