User Review

  • Summary: I purchased these as a gift to myself to keep in the office. I run them via the cheap Nu-Force DAC and listen for hours per session.    Overall I would say these are amazing cans. They are very neutral, and because of the semi open design (I'm assuming) they sound pretty wide.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Semi-Closed, Durable
  • Cons: Cord, Heavy

Fantastic

  • Summary: I've had these headphones for a week now and they are burned in. The stage, separation and detail are incredible with these headphones. The bass is true, it is not added to in any way. I am going through my entire collection again and just loving it, I'm hearing detail I've not heard before.

  • Excerpt: I use it for 3 months. I tried few other models (the ones that interested me were not available near my home or not listenable in store, too bad): a Sennheiser HD25, who squeezed my head too much, another version of sennheiser " DJ "shook that much and also gave her a too narrow, a

  • Summary: If you need better than this, then you either have money to waste or you belong to the ranks of world's top sound engineers... I have mid range Yamaha floor standing speakers, and matching quality hi-fi equipment (all together worth some 2000 euros) and yet, for some music, it felt as if i listened...

basic summary

  • Summary: basically these are the best headphones i have ever owned im my lifetime. although i wouldn't recommend them for strictly bass obsessed users. never the less the sound quality is just amazing, the high pitch sound levels are perfect with no distortion.

Growing on me

David P., Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking to upgrade my current Beyerdynamic DT 231 headphones for a more expensive pair. The headphones were destined for office use so they had to be closed/semi-closed so the sound didn't leak too much.

Ausserst linear, präzise und weil superleicht mit perfektem Tragekompfort

  • Summary: Wenn man sich auf die unendliche Reise begibt Tests von Kopfhörern zu lesen wird es wohl vielen so gehen wie mir, hinterher weis man fast noch weniger was man denn nun nehmen soll oder eben nicht. Ich fasse deshalb "meine" Kaufkriterien zusammen.

Utmärkt

PHun, Prisjakt
28 December 2014
  • Summary: Har haft dem nu i Ca. 3-4år och har aldrig haft ett par bättre. + Låter för jäkla bra + Sladden är i perfekt längd (ganska lång) + Dem sitter skönt på huvudet - Dock efter 3h+ så blir dem inte allt för sköna, så gamear du mycket så kan det vara nått att tänka på. Men ändå inget jätte problem.
