Well, it's not white, exactly. It's aluminium.


Yeah, but white is easier to type than aluminum.

...unless you type Al for aluminum \:\)

It depends.

I have always wondered what the reaction would be if Sony changed the MDR 7506/v6 studio monitor headphones from black to white?

once again i think going with this new desing is a great idea. it looks modern and it will attract new customers. to me with the black dust caps it almost looks no different than a SONY speaker!!! and i don't want to offend sony or it's fans. i have sony stuff. just saying it's nice to see looks being matched with performance.

check out other mid level high end speakers. they all have an interesting look not a dated one. and to a regular consumer it going to equate to better.

I have always wondered what the reaction would be if Ford only ever sold the Model T.

Well, if you are a branching out to an entirely new product or product line, that's much different.

Have to agree with the good Dr. that I donít care for the new look.

When I first started catching up with this thread I didnít understand what was up because I happen to like the look of all aluminum drivers (the ones that are completely concave) but when I saw the picture with that dimple in the middle it just looks silly. The contrast of the black dust cap looked much better if the cone surface isnít going to be totally smooth.

My grills stay on unless I demo and someone wants to see what the drivers look like so as long as they sound the same I guess it doesnít matter.

while all this dust cap conversation is important and all i'm sure, i am still waiting to hear someone give their initial or full review of the center who has it. i would hope that one of those lucky few has already connected it up to their system, calibrated it and listened to and watched some movies, SACD's, LP's, CD's gaming or something by now and there would be a nice rush to let the rest of know what we might be in for!

maybe later tonight or over the weekend, that will happen.

I think I prefer the look of the old drivers, but I keep my grill on....

Don't much care for all the drama and BS accusations though. The constant conspiracy rhetoric is making me eye ball that "ignore" button much closer than ever before.
