Those look pretty cool, but I've already got a pair of CX300's and a pair of CX500's. I've heard that those models leak a lot of sound, I wonder if that will still be the case with this new model?

You have to crank them really loud to really notice them....loud enough to damage your hearing. Not sure about the new model.

I really like the PX100s.

They're what made me realize that stock buds are shitty.

Well the new looks of the PX200's looks to be a good improvement.

Looks aren't everything, it's more how they preform Although, I do like the 'fold and flip' design.

I like the black one. Hard to say about the sound improvement. For what they are , a portable headphone, the sound of the current PX100 is pretty good.

I like the black one too, much better than the original design, looks a little more comfy but I doubt there’s much difference in sq. Will be interesting to read some trusted user feedback.

I like the looks of the original ones better. Not that the original ones looked good, those just look like they took something ugly and made it plain, so now they're ugly and plain.

I was actually curious about the current models, since I haven't heard either of the new ones. But I'll look forward to your impression of the new ones.

Nice. I love my px100s and now the 200 might actually be an option for its less than open design. Love the single cable decision. All I can hope for is that they improved joint going to a more durable elbow input rather than straight (or at least a reinforced straight jack). Lost two pairs of the 100s because the cable/jack areas pulled apart and the interior wiring became exposed.

The PX100's sound fantastic, but I'm looking forward to the closed design of the PX200II myself. Plus, the inline volume control is a major plus for me. Not all my players have tactile volume controls on them, so this is a GODSEND!!!!

Just do me a favor, please PM me if anyone see's these for sale on the net - thanks!!!!

Hey, I never thought of it that way....the volume on the KSC75's cord could make the Q2 a little more portable friendly. You're a veritable genius!
