    I quite like Marman - Maybe they could have that as a side brand, Marman by Harman/Kardon:D Make sure you get commision when that happens!

    They are so flat size wise, like the styling but they sound a tad average.

    You never know how these things will turn out. Anyway the CL makes a great walkabout headphone. iPod and treble booster sounds pretty good when outdoors. Indoors is another matter. To get the CL to sound closer to either the ATH M50 or the Shure 1840 requires a fairly large treble boost. They are quite dull - much worse than the B&W P5, which are already soft on the high end. If the youth who buy these think this is good sound, it can only mean they never listen to actual music.
