Amazing headphones,amazing bass and soundawesome purchase10/10.
I’ve never written a review before but feel compelled to now because i bought these headphones last week and thought the sound was incredible. Yes, there is a slight hiss from the noise cancellation but it is barely noticeable and you get used to it very quickly. I heard things in songs i never knew were there, beautiful. Buti had to return them the very next day because they leak so much sound. It’s not like just hearing someone has music on, it is literally hearing every lyric. Heard from other online reviews that people have been asked to remove them countless times. As i bought these for out and about and for travel, i had to return them as they would be totally unsuable on a bus, train or plane. I strongly suggest you think carefully about where you want to use these before you buy them as with the volume on a nice level you might as well be playing music our your phone. Even on a low level you can still hear the lyrics.
Good but definitely not the best. Before you look at a pair of headphones, you have to ask yourself what you want from them. For example, is noise cancellation more important to me than sound quality?. In my experience, for blocking out external noise, sound isolation earphones are far superior to noise cancellation headphones, this is because of their design and the way in which they work. Some people may specifically want cans but great sound quality can be found in earphones too, this shouldn’t be overlooked, i strongly recommend shure’s se420’s for sound isolation/blocking out background noise in that case. These cans are not made for mixing, mixing with a noise cancellation feature wouldn’t be a good idea because of the white noise and so thats the only comment im going to make about that. . And so onto the review:noise cancellation: when putting on the headphones without even enabling the noise cancellation feature, external sounds are definitely dampened. With music playing, they are of course even better. However, the white noise created to block out this external sound can be distracting when listening to your music, especially acoustic/classical but also in breakdowns of metal/dnb. It obviously comes down to the environment that your going to be using these cans in and what kindof music your going to be listening to.

I tried these headphones in ny on holiday, and became fixated with owning a pair. I always thought i would aim for a pair of bose one day, but listening to these side by side – it was – in my opinion, no contest. I have never heard such fantastic sound quality and came home, scanning loads of websites to find a good deal. But the reality is these are expensive, because they are great quality. Amazon came up trumps again in terms of price, reliability of delivery and robust packaging so when pay day came round, so did the purchaseas a lot of reviews will point out, the headphones are not ‘soundproofed’ to those sitting beside you and if i am honest, i would not feel comfortable sitting on public transport if i had them up full tilt. If it was me sitting next to someone wearing them the sound leakage would soon cause me to have a grumpy face :-$ having said that, i would struggle to feel any need to have them up to full volume, such is the clarity and quality of the sound. The other point that i have read concerns about is the fragility of the headband. Yes, it feels a little delicate, but i simply ensure i unfold/fold holding both sides of the hinge firmly, and they have been no problem. If i could improve the design, i would say the headband should also be adjustable for size, as the bigger your head, the less likely the cushions will sit snugly to cover the whole ear.
Im only 13 (on my mums account) and even i can appreciate the sound quality of these headphones i have had them since xmas and there amazing build quality noise reduction all in all there brilliant would recommend these to anyone.
Reviews from purchasers :
- More fashion than audio performance
- Sound leakage appalling
- Good but definitely not the best!
I wasnt very sure about these headphones cause of the price but i am really glad i ordered these. People who complain about sound leakage, well u dont have to listen to you music at the highest possible volume. Delivered to me in a day at a price which is low compared to other sellers. Would definitely recommend it.
Awesome pure sound and powerful bass. The best headphones i have ever used by a long way. The vocals come across the top of the bass and backing even when the track is really loud and complex. The purity of the vocals with every crisp detail is amazing. The quality of the stereo separation becomes more impressive when the sound is so pure and clear. The active background noise reduction is very impressive, loud noises such as passing trains or loud pa announcements get very much reduced almost to zero, while in a quiet environment you can still tell when someone is speaking to you, it just doesn’t interrupt so much. Minor noises like passing cars or conversations merge away. It is like you are in your own quiet world where your own music dominates. You can get these headphones for £100-£125 which is a bargain.
