Thank you very much for your detailed reply!
It’s always great to hear from folks that have such a lengthy personal history with these headphones. With their long history both in and out of the industry, I’ve always been surprised Sony never re-released them with a detachable cable as standard…or that modern Sony hasn’t tried to shove a bluetooth connection into them, hah. :)
The sticker topic continues to inflame passions all over the internet. I won’t back down from my love of the red “for DIGITAL” sticker! And I’m happy to see other opinions just as strong as mine.
