Hi Donna,

 Well your lucky,

I purchased mine prior to xmas and they wont arrive till feb 3rd,
 So I'm very much hanging out to get my hands on them.

 I just thought of something that might be difficult with out great thought on 
a device such as an earpod iPhone concept,

 And that would be setting up a Sonos system,

I've just had to set my Play bar and surrounds with a new tv so basically re 
setup my living room systems,and doing that plus using the new tuning system 
and it would be very interesting how you would do that on earpods only.

 Still  these things could happen.-----Original Message-----

Personally, I think it's a cool concept, and I agree with all of you.  
Certainly they could be.  I haven't yet purchased them, as I'm saving pennies 
for one of the new Macs, but will be very interested to own a pair one of these 
days.
