    So, the first of the second set is made. I also quite like the braid on this.

    Should I move away from the plain black look on the SPOTFIRE and covet the attention of the eye as well as the ear?

    OPINIONS PLEASE!

    Yes I agree. Maybe I've been underselling the image side. Have to have a think on it and find some alternative braiding.

    Remember, for most of us men, this is “male jewellery” - we like a bit of bling as well as good sound!

    You're quite right I think. I'm not in to the visual, so I am thinking I have missed a trick here!

    I am already making strides to correct this gross error of judgment lol

    I prefer the braiding on these. They look well sharp.

    I like both. I think what shines through, even in photos, is the care and attention in choosing good quality components and making them.
