The above image I snapped between platform changes for a recent magazine shoot. I wasn't the biggest fan of the original IE800. Too shiny. Too dark. I had ample time to touch this one, which is resistant to touch blemishes and corrosion, but which fits just like its predecessor. I'm told that it is a bit brighter, too, which may be right up my alley.
If I pick one up, you can expect a long profile of it on ohm, as well as my fledgeling YouTube channel, Fauxtaku Lounge.
