Commenting on the cooperation, CEO Daniel Sennheiser himself said that Phonebloks "clearly matches our own understanding of sustainable, forward-looking investments." Talk about that famous German punctuality!
While Sennheiser's cans aren't endorsed by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, the family company, which was founded in 1945, knows what sound quality is about. Its involvement with Phonebloks will probably carry across Project Ara in some ways, which already makes us like the innovative modular phone project even more.
In case you are left wondering, Phonebloks is now a modular smartphone community that's formally separate from Google's Project Ara, but actually works along with it to bring the modular concept to fruition sometime next year.
German audio system overlords Sennheiser announced a "partnership" with Phonebloks. sennheiser is very big to be acquired

Well the likes of Google and Apple are rich enough these days to buy anyone lol. Still, pretty happy Google chose quality over garbage brand names. I'd say I feel bad for Apple fans but they're none the wiser when it comes to quality anyway, they'll be happy in their ignorance.

oh yes they will be happy, I used to tell people how nice high end amped headphones are and how they have varying sound stages and sound signatures. But honestly most of them don't care and will gladly listen to the same song on a pair of cheapo tinny earbuds. Are they missing out? I think so. Do they Care? absolutely not

Man, really - how can you call "not expensive":http://en-us.sennheiser.com/dynamic-headphones-high-end-around-ear-hd-800 Sound-wise Sennheiser is better. Price-wise - it is more expensive But I fully agree - that's a real headphone company (thumbs up)

Not really, the HD800's aren't meant to to be used for everyday listening like beats. The HD800's are professional headphones meant for studio use, and they are actually some of the cheapest headphones for the category they're in. Sennheiser has numerous offerings that are better than beats for lower, equal, and higher prices

Apples-to-Oranges comparison. Sennheiser produces equipment for Audiophiles and for professional studio recording (monitors). HD280Pro are far superior to Beats as far as neutral sound goes, and for those who want to just enjoy music with headphones that are "colored" or tweaked for music enjoyment (as opposed to music accuracy), again, Sennheiser still puts Beats to shame at the same [or lesser] price point.

This is good news for phonebloks sennheiser is way more reliable than beats. Bad for consumer of apple I'm sure the price will bump up again for their phones.

Sennheiser concentrates more on the headphones line-up for the casual user than AudioTechnica. Plus, I believe they have way better brand recognition than the latter and more resources (not completely sure).

Apple - Beats - bad move expect additional price. Phonebloks - Sennheizer - good choice HTC - from Beats to Harman Cardon - excellent move Sony - Sony Samsung - ? LG - ?

Agreed... I find it funny that HTC One M8 actually have the best audio quality according to GSMArena testing... and that is right after they drop Beats... Sony phones have never amazed my in audio quality, but they sound pretty good, specially with their EQ and other software tweaking... iPhone sound very good already... the Beats move seems to be more of a Marketing strategy... Samsung have had its ups and downs regarding sound, but I think they did it right after the S4... (I actually like their Adapt sound equalization) Motorola had an amazing sound back when I had the original Atrix... after that I have no idea...
