Sigh. "Audiophiles". Go back to buying $10,000 ethernet cables ( http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/audioquest-ethernet-cables-pt2-ethernet-cable ) and leave the rest of us to discuss the _real_ world :-)
You haven't used any lately then. Currently typing this with Beats Wireless Studio headphones on while smashed into a subway car on my morning commute :-) .
