An excellent closed headphone

sohnx, head-fi.org
30 December 2012
  • Excerpt: These are great sounding closed headphones, which mays not be saying much, but, it's really hard to come by closed headphones with that outside your head soundstage and these manage it.
  • Pros: Clear, detailed, liquid mids, tangible pop on drums
  • Cons: Bass a little recessed, upper mids a little too forward

Great, once the glasses come off...

  • Summary: An interesting quirk of these headphones I've found: I noticed the same weird overzealous mids that other reviewers have mentioned - until, that is, I took my glasses off! It seems the legs of my specs are just enough to break the earcups' 'seal' around my ears and totally ruin the sound.

Bass - Haha - Not a problem with these cans!

  • Summary: No point waxing lyrical about these, many great reviews already. Burn them in for about 80+ hours and you have such a sweet amazing hifi sound at such a low price point. For anyone worried by some reviews talking about a lack of bass, once they are fully burned in they have a fantastic bass...

Excellent price/quality ratio with some caveats (bought them at 99£)

  • Summary: Disclaimer: in no way I can be called audiophile or something like that, I just like to listen music in a nice way. This is my first pair of closed back high quality headphones. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD650 since 4 year and that's the only comparison I can think of.

Very impressive technically as well as musically

  • Summary: It’s not easy write something new about this headphones, plenty of reviews populate the web, so I’ll try the easy way: my very own listening impressions. This headphones looks big and sturdy, and in fact they are; not too heavy and very comfortable to wear, though they will heat your ears a bit.

Highly recommended but only if you can adjust the bass on your source equipment - a little bass shy.

  • Summary: Previously I would never have dreamed of spending £100 on a pair of headphones; however, I wanted a good pair to use with a new hi-res music player I purchased and these get good reviews on line and are heavily discounted from their RRP.

Where have you been all my life!

Albert Seleznyov, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't normally write reviews but thought these cans thoroughly deserve one. I'm writing this with the headphones firmly over my ears. In fact, they've hardly been off since I was done burning them in. And by burning in I mean plug them in and leave running for about 80 hours.

Every married man should own a pair of these

Simon Parker, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: Like most women, my wife is unable to appreciate the need to play music at the appropriate volume i.e loud. These headphones allow me to listen to my music at the necessary volume, whilst the closed back design eliminates the constant whining noise she is prone to make whilst I am listening either...

  • Summary: I love the design of these and really wanted them to be the headphones I am looking for, the price is good, they are really comfortable and well built, but unfortunately there area couple of problems which make them for me unsuitable.

Outstanding sounds, brings music alive.

Keith Johnston, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved the AKG headphones. I love my music and love it to sound amazing. I have a set of AKG450's which I love wearing out and about but ordered these as I wanted to move up on quality and based on the reviews I decided to purchase. These are an amazing set of headphones.
