@scottjal yeah, it is definitely cheaper than other conferences, and they are sure to be giving gifts, but that doesn’t necessarily make it afforadable. I mean, I could do it, but, well… It’s still not cheap (very tempted though).
@feorlen yeah, I have been using etymotics since 2009 or so, and have had many sets replaced. They are always cool about sending me a new set. Unfortunately, I have had these ones for quite a while now, probably a little too long to receive a replacement.
