Connecting Your Headphones

Apple buying Beats and looking into new headphone connections shouldn't be a big deal. Apple bought Beats for the music streaming and personnel as much as the headphones (which are NOT GOOD AT ALL PLEASE LOOK INTO KLIPSCH OR AKG OR SENNHEISER OR SOMETHING ELSE), and the 3.5mm connection was never an audiophile choice for headphones. The jack works because it's small, portable, and easily implemented. Why not look into new technologies or connections (using something besides Beats headphones, of course)? And remember, of course, that connection types don't necessarily help audio quality (remember when the Playstation was the audiophile choice because of . . . RCA connectors?!). Let the new technology happen, and remember that source material, good headphones, and the signal chain mean just as much as the connector.
