 Yeah, Beyer doesn't get a lot of press in the US (they actually don't do a lot of marketing period).  I did compare them with equivalent models from Grado and a few others at the time (around 10 years ago) and liked them the best.  I heard about them through discussions with people on sound engineering forums and mailing lists.  Had to go out of my way to find a pair to try out, but it was worth it.  Nice flat/even response across the frequency range, a wider frequency...
 As with any sense (taste, smell, etc), there is a different range of experience for everyone.  And, of course, the more you learn and pay attention to details, the more you tend to obsess over them (which is where age becomes a factor).  I remember reading an article about an audiophile who paid ~$30k for a power conditioner for his home because he could hear a slight click in his music when his refrigerator turned on.  It would be classified as a form of OCD by most, but...
 More an assault on the electroacoustic engineers at Apple who worked on the EarPods.  Ive certainly had a hand in them from an aesthetic standpoint, but he's an industrial designer and likely doesn't have much experience in the field of acoustics.
 I've been using Beyerdynamic DT770's for studio reference headphones for years now and really like them.  Well under $1000.  I haven't tried their mobile offerings though (the DT770s are a bit bulky to wear outside of the studio).  That's kinda what this is about: headphones you'd use on the go with your iPhone/iPad.  I know I certainly wouldn't take a pair of $3000 headphones out of my studio.
 You selectively chose one of the "dramatic" paragraphs and, from that selective choice, declared the whole article as being propaganda.  What about the parts dealing with the history of PageRank technology?  Are those propaganda too?
 And the companies who license Android from Google and have infringement cases related to that: Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc
 Not at all.  I'm just trying to eliminate the cases where companies simply sit on patents and wait for others to infringe, or companies which buy up patents at firesale prices when other companies go out of business and do the same.  I think most people can agree that these cases aren't beneficial to the industry.
 Let's do an apples-to-apples comparison.  List the lawsuits filed against Apple by technology companies which have actually released products to market using the infringed technology.  Then do the same for the ones filed against Google or against companies using Google's technology which are directly related to that technology (i.e. Samsung).  To me, those are the ones which really matter because there's material losses involved.
 When I first read the comments, the only negative ones I could find with any sort of substance behind them were Gatorguy's (a nice debate which is still going).  The rest were just insults, scripted mantras I read everywhere about DED, and the usual nit-picking about run-on sentences.
 I agree that DED can be somewhat verbose.  However, being someone who has studied and debated at a college level, I appreciate when someone takes the time to research and utilize a number of relevant historical examples to back up their central argument.  That, to me, is the highest form of argumentation.  Even if the attention span of the average person on the internet isn't long enough to allow for it.
