"I too joined CNET just to review these"4.5 starson by carrollpe
Pros: I'm amazed by sound quality. I expect online reviews to be exagerated but not in this case. You can not go wrong at the price or, maybe, at any price. Great equipment and, as another reviewer said, try these on CD to appreciate full capability.
Cons: Straight connector to source device - would prefer J, or whatever the 45 degree connector is called.
Summary: Just get hold of some of these before they decide to discontinue the line.
