Outed? is that hip slang for released. Please clarify.

Maybe it was one of those products “in the closet” for so long that B&O felt compelled to “out it”. 

We could always ask Perez Hilton or Matt Dredge for confirmation.

Big question though, will it be under or over $500?  This is B&O, after all.

I have to admit that I’ve always liked the looks of that B&O stuff, but man, it can be expensive.  I am willing to bet these will probably run around $300 or so.  How much is the existing EarSet 3?  I would imagine these will probably be around the same or just slightly more expensive due to the addition of the mic and remote.

My experience is that as nice as this B&O stuff looks, you can often get better sound for cheaper.  In my case, I’ll probably stick with my trusty ol’ stand-by - Klipsch!
