Yet they've been largely ignored by the industry. I don't expect it to change either. My take is that women are buying more e-gear now because a lot of the tech has become mature—for example, you can buy a five megapixel camera for a reasonable price this year. But watch how the industry tries to court the female consumer. You'll see brighter colors and "simpler interfaces" billed as woman-friendly. Sheesh, most women want what I want: a good product at a good price. Instead, they get vanity mirrors.

You can't buy 'em here, but they sure look sexy. "Full condenser-type three-way speaker system (76kg), with outboard crossovers (18kg)." Not too sensitive at 80dB/W/m, but rated at 35Hz–40kHz. "Open price."

Possibly a comment on our fascination with the little gizmo, although sometimes a sucker is just a sucker.
