$99 is not too cheap. You can spend more, but it doesn't matter. You want accuracy, and the Sony's so it. As far as comfy goes, they're both about the same. But I notice replacement ear pads for the Sony's are more readily available than they are for the AKGs. This is why the Beats article is funny to me. I go into BestBuy and I see how much they're charging for that crap, and how the kids are buying 'em up like they do Nike shoes, and I just shake my head.99 bucks sounds almost too cheap. I thought you were going to quote something in the 250-300 range. Which are more comfy, your Sony's or the AKG?
Funny thing about that article. In the end, they said Apple bought Beats. I think the only reason Apple was impressed with Beats is because Beats marketing is just like Apple's: let's make some crap that everybody will buy regardless is it's good or if they even need it. I would love to make my living like that!
