That's what I would think too. Never seen the AKG ones before.

I've passed by them a few times but never did a price check until now. I mean yea the sphericals will technically wear out sooner but I don't really care much.

I personally think that at that point when deciding between the two of them, performance wise I doubt you'd feel a noticeable difference. THR's are life time warranty too I hear. :) I have the THR's and I think they are great!

nylon vs spherical? I think you'd notice a lot of difference on hard cornering. IMO anywho.

Hmm... I'd be curious to find out. The THR's are super solid.

nylon still has play in it. There really isn't any in spherical.

The difference is probably nominal enough where you can't really feel a difference. Still, the spherical are cheaper, so that's what I would go with.

I would definitely go with sphericals when you have the choice.

Bimmerworld sell a version of the Treehouse style, as well as the Treehouse.
The BW version is slightly cheaper than the TH.
