Wish I would have waited. I got R1 (w/o mic) from MP4nation last week and now have to wait 3 wks for them to arrive. Amazon is the better choice to order from for faster shipping and customer service in the event they needed to be returned. Repp on the good find.
Hey, Gumburgerler! I never bought straight from MP4nation even when got tempted but I had to post about these amazing little sturdy Beta. What I personally hate is how every single damn earphones are failing on me after about month of usage. But not Beta. I'm simply amazed how they survived everything including washing machine.
What about R1? Should I upgrade? I use Denon AH-D2000 at home but beta when roaming around the city. If R1 are as sturdy and offer something more I would like to know that. Thanks.
