Well you know at some point or another someone was going to mention them so I thought I'd beat them to the punch.

And no, I would NEVER recommend Bose anything. Except maybe if you can get your hands on a pair of early 901's. They weren't too bad really.

Create something idiot proof and they will make a better idiot.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of environmental isolation for my headphones. I don't want to hear anything else, and I'd just as soon no one else have to put up with what I'm listening to. And desk-mounted or lapel mics are just annoying, I find. Still, sooner or later, I'll probably want something dedicated for just listening to music, and I may have to resort to open phones at that point. So I'll keep the name in mind
