Editors Didn't Like

  • Not quite as graceful looking as B&W's onear models
  • Expensive
  • Designed for portability and isolation, so unless you have a noisy home, they aren't as desirable for home listening
  • Carrying case isn't protective enough
  • Ladies may not take to kindly to the bulky design
  • Would have been nice if the inline remote worked for other smartphones and not just iOS
