My current headphones are beat up. really beat up. they are a $50 pair of Sony earbuds. I've always bought these from Sony because they come with two cables, a short cable and a long cable. I use the short cable all the time because I always try to wear shirts with a pocket to store my iphone.
When walking in the city you want your headphone cable to be as short as possible so that it does not get caught by anybody else who is walking by. (this has happened to me, some jerk grabbed the long cable with his backpack and it ripped the earbud out of me ear and the rubber cushion flew into the street, So i either pound the guy in the back of his neck or run after the rubber cushion, I chose the latter and by the time I picked it up that jerk was gone)
So from that time on I used headphones with short cables and when i went to look for headphones only the Sony's had this short cable.
But now I've noticed that these new Polk Headphones have a short 14" cable.
I Just sold something on eBay for $300 and so I think I'm going to treat myself to a new pair.
I'd like the Black 3000's but I guess the White/Grey will work as well.
Have any of you tried these out yet?
