Great product

  • Conclusion: Not as comfortable as the k271 mkII but they sound at least as good and are also louder. I also prefer to have a detachable lead but it is no so important

NIce set of cans for everyday listening

New Yorker from New York, NY, Sonic Electronix
21 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Bought these about a month ago and am very happy with the result. Great sound detail for anything I'm listening to, and fantastic at work because they don't leak any sound, especially when I'm in a room full of people. Everything is clear and crisp. Headphones are also gorgeous and extremely comfortable. A few cons: the headphones are HUGE, so if you have a small head, go for something else, and the set doesn't come with a carrying case.

Love them!

Alex from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Sonic Electronix
3 January 2014
  • Conclusion: I have owned them for only 2 weeks but so far, wow, I really like them. They look good, sound great, seems very durable. I must say I intend to use them only at work and not on transportation since they are big and not really made for mobility. They are comfortable (very important to me). Their sound is neutral, just as I wanted since I listen mostly to Jazz and light rock / folk. Still, they have some bass, just normal, not artificially more like some other headphones.

Akg k550

Richard from East Lansing, MI, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Give these headphones lots of time to aclimate themselves to your ears. You'll think there's no bass at first but once the cans loosen up they're amazing!

Great set of headphones

Osanida, Crutchfield
21 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm impressed by these headphones and I've only had them for a short time. I feel they are worth the money spent, quality construction as well.
  • Pros: Very fast shipping to an APO address, they only took 6 days to get from VA to Okinawa! Clean sound. I'm hearing things in songs that I haven't heard before! Great sound, cranked up a bit, and my wife sitting a few feet away from me ( in our home office) can't hear anything I'm listening to. I love how these cans cover my ears completely too. It's great they come with a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter in case one wants to plug them into your A/V receiver for movies or music.
  • Cons: Seem a bit big, but not really a con as I don't plan on travelling with them. Not that much bass, but I didn't want headphones overpowered by bass. Long cord, but it's easily secured with a twist tie.

Did the research, it paid off.

  • Summary: I am in love with these headphones, the style on them are just absolutely gorgeous. I haven't even owned these headphones for more than a few hours...
  • Pros: Open back sounding on a closed design, earcups fit your ears perfectly.
  • Cons: Cord length (the box comes with 6 twist ties so that should solve it)
