As an entry-level wanna-be, I would love to win these. My Ipod supplied ear buds really hurt after 10 minutes of use since I lost the foam covers.

Over-the-ear headphones are the only way to listen to music!

I once won some cheese, but I couldn't listen to music with the Gouda. If I win the headphones I'll be able to listen to music, but not eat. It would still be Gouda to win.

Let me put it this way; I am married. My wife can't understand the idea of $300 headphones, which as an extension means I don't get to understand it myself. Please, kindly, remedy this situation by allowing me the chance to 'forgo' the payment step, and go right to the 'YOU WIN!!!' step. It's for my wife's good, not mine.

Thanks guys, love the site.

Good morning Phiaton, i'm in the library looking at my e-mail and see that Stereophile sent me their latest issue. I notice an ad for Phiaton PS500 Primal series headphones Sweepstakes. Your headphones look "Delicious". I may not be an audioholic, but i do like listening to music. And what better way to listen to Pink Floyd or Earth,Wind&Fire than on your fine headphones. I don't mean to kiss booty but I will post my feeling about your headphones on Twitter and FaceBook today.Finally, i have but three words. Leather, Titanium, 40mm, WOW, ok that's four words. Enjoy your weekend.
