    Spotify Hi-fi announcement Seems to me that Spotify is finally wading into the Hi-fi water's after promising the service few years back. Wonder how much of it is going to be real Hi-fi quality, or if it'll be hampered with some Ogg Vorbis version of Hifi codec.

    Design Aesthetic fails!

    I came across GermanMaestro brand's GMP 8.35 headphones today on Drop. For lack of better words, the design aesthetic on the ear cups and headband screams cheap molded plastic and PVC from seeing the photos. They're probably decent sounding headphones but "Buzz, your girlfriend.. Woof"...
