they look bad, probably sound worse, and are SO over priced.. oh thats kinda like beats... but they have an even worse color scheme. I would rather have chose beats over these abhorrent things.

Wow, these things look like Beats from an alternate dimension where everything is the same but slightly different.

Anyway, I wonder what a full blown marketing campaign from Senn, AT, Grado, etc. to the general public would look like, and whether it could be successful.

I won't go into the computer science geekiness of it lols.
~256 kbps AAC is easily better in file quality than 320 kbps CBR mp3. even ~192kbps AAC is better than 320kbps CBR mp3. mp3 is an outdated lossy format.
Anyway, it'll just be marketed as the HTC Beats tbh. It'll live on, but without Monster's name and importantly, distribution channels.
Also Logitech bought out Ultimate Ears so realistically they will not buy out Beats Electronics.
The Asian market has far more competition than the West tbh as there are many many earphones and headphones that are Chinese market only / Japanese market only / Asian market only.

Wait, iTunes's AAC encoding is better than LAME MP3? Can iTunes convert FLAC to its high quality AAC?

All we need now are Justin Beiber's series of headphones.

In any case, good news for the audio world but I'll forever remain loyal to Sennheiser tongue.gif
