I've upgraded (and downgraded for repurposing) every mac I've ever owned...

To me this was part of a post Jobs shift to make hardware an unrepairable consumable, ironically at a time when sustainability would seem a critical priority...
I still enjoy a pair of Sennheiser dual driver over ear 'cans' with audiophile metrics from the mid 80's and was happy to buy essential consumables such as ear pads and wires until they were discontinued after 35 (vs 5) years, stocking up for the last studio headphones I may ever need...
My mobile 'buds' are Westone musician grade UM series again wired and still going strong save the essential consumables of physical contact and connection...
From what I have read Jobs was an erudite audiophile and that zeitgeist was core to the success of the iPod, including the DAC of the iPod 4 which was legendary vs the ear fatiguing shredding of music in other less than lossless formats.
Cool ? Is that merit ? Perhaps for many...
