Beautiful. suddenly $695 a pair seems too low for the craftsmanship.

Ok, for each specific case, please be exact and precise as to what is completely wrong.

I'll second that as I watched that segment and I thought it was pretty good, and the description of each step of the process seemed OK to me.

Some of the subjective comments at the beginning I thought were a bit simplistic/questionable, otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed the piece. If ilimzn is talking about the intro I might be inclined to agree..

Too bad they didn't show how the testing and matching was done.
