Really awesome pair of headphones- great sound quality and look good too. Nice long cables so no movement limitations. Minimal (and i really mean minimal) sound leakage during playback. My only issue is the angular headphone jack on the cables. For some reason it doesn’t quite fit all the way in to my samsung galaxy s3 and i only get sound from one ear when this happens. This means i can’t use my inline headset cable with my phone as it doesn’t work if you plug the lead in the other way around. It’s a shame, but only a minor issue when compared with the greatness that is these headphones.
Best i’ve heard at this price – beats beaters. Quite flat against your head so they don’t make you look like a cyberman. Perhaps a little too much bottom end, but that’s what the kids want eh?. The case is very useful and solid enough to take knocks. Replaceable cable is something all headphones should come with as these do and is in my opinion essential. The headphone jack that goes into the phone is set at a 45 deg angle thereby reducing wear which is genius, i had two throw away two pairs of sennheiser because the cable wore out at that point. Anyway 4 out of 5 – not maximum as i think the sound, while very good, could be improved upon. I listen to a lot of vintage ‘analogue’ music and it doesnt translate as well on these cans as recent heavily compressed songs do.
Brilliant headphones, i have had these for well over. Brilliant headphones, i have had these for well over a year now and they are still my main set of headphones. I use them for pc gaming and for portable hi-fi. The foam cups are the most comfortable i have ever found on a set of headphones and they clamp over your ears nicely to isolate the sound. The drivers are very powerful, i use an external portable dac and amplifier with my ipod on them and the volume these things can go to and the bass they put out is insane. I can actually take them off crank up the external amp and use them as speakers they are that loud and clear. Anyhow, the listening experience especially with a decent dac is fantastic, at first the sound a bit muffled with very heavy bass and supressed mids and highs, but after 100 or so hours and loosening them up they just sound better every time. If you are into your bass heavy music these are a must, i tried them without my external dac and amp and even on a standard ipod the bass reproduction was very nice. I listen to all types of music and these can produce a clear, soothing sound or a thumping club like sound whenever you want. They look very smart too, especially with the polished plates on the ear cups.
Comments from buyers
“The best headphones I’ve ever brought!, Look good, sound great, Misleading reviews when this is a flawless product”
After buying these i read a few other reviews on other sites and they weren’t all as positive as i expected. Most were on audiophile sites though and i suspect that the standards expected by those carrying out the test are ridiculously highsince receiving mine i have enjoyed numerous hours listening to very varied music and i can honestly say that i’m over the moon with them. The bass is nice and deep without distortion at volume, mids are clear and not muddied by the bass at all and the highs are crisp and clear. I have had numerous sets of high quality headphones from the likes of sennheiser and pioneer and these are easily comparable. Overall a fantastic pair of good quality headphones, very comfortable and feel built to last.
Superb headphones but do need some tweaking. . You may see some contradicting reviews of these but they are definitely a quality pair. Excellent build quality, materials, looks and sound. As long as you know how to use an eq. When i first got them out of the box i was disappointed with the muddy sound but after quite a lot of tweaking with the equalizer on my pc i got them to sound perfect. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between these (adjusted properly) and a £300 pair.
A must-buy for the professional dj. The packaging presentation of the headphone is amazing to say the least. Now wear this beast and you are easily emmersed in your private world of bass thumping music. No need to crank up the vol on this one, it’s already done for you. I have compared this with the beat studio and can’t tell the difference apart for what i paid for it. On the dj scene, i wore this for 4hrs and no strain on my ears. It’s not bulky nor is it heavy. Surely something must be wrong as it can’t be 100% excellent, well give me sometime and i will let you know. If this disappoints, i will be back here in a hurry.
