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

4.5 stars

Hoos4Headphones, Crutchfield
5 May 2012
  • Summary: Very comfortable and easy to wear for extended periods. The seal is good, if not tight--but I attribute part of the comfort to it not being too tight. Plus, the phones can be swiveled for a better fit (a feature I really like in headphones), which I sometimes have to do when I put them on.
  • Pros: Style, comfort, sound quality
  • Cons: Sound could be more open and spacious

game changer

mmbeats, Crutchfield
18 March 2012
  • Summary: Great sound stage. Could fit a bit more snug for better isolation. But the best thing is the ohm impedance that allows for low volt devices like smart phones and iPods to have awesome sound without headphone amp.
  • Pros: Sound quality.32 ohms
  • Cons: Loose fit for small heads.

Especially suited for the studio but put to good use at home

J. Ranthe, Amazon
27 March 2015
  • Summary: Very neutral sounding. Especially suited for the studio but put to good use at home. A bargain at 100 pounds. Durable, comfortable, slightly large (probably necessary for the extremely deep bass extension). I bent mine to fit my unusually narrow head.

AKG K550 closed back over-ear headphones

Scot, Richer Sounds
30 September 2014
  • Summary: These cans give a very smooth and detailed presentation with an incredible sense of air and space. The soundstage is wide and an impressive achievement for a set of closed back cans. They are very musical headphones with a natural and clear signature.
  • Pros: balance of clarity and sweetness , presence , wide soundstage , best sounding phones for their price
  • Cons: quiet when using portable source

It holds very well against IEMS like XBA-30 or XBA-H3

Arceles, Richer Sounds
30 August 2014
  • Summary: During many years of listening music I've always used in ear headphones, this is because I throughly enjoy walking and listening to music. This began with just a casette player, then moved onto a Hi-MD, later on two Walkmans and finally a cellphone + external DAC-AMP.
  • Pros: precise bass , excellent mids , sparkly highs (i like them like this) , very comfortable , looks are one of a kind
  • Cons: bass is precise yet not as punchy as my xba-h3 , needs sealing and a compatible head shape , the sparkly highs might not be for everyone , non detachable cable albeit good enough for home

  • Summary: The product was great and even more importantly, the service was amazing. I found this slightly cheaper somewhere else online and Richer Sounds gave me as promised, a 5 pound discount on the headphones which I appreciated.

  • Summary: Bought these as a replacement for old sennheisers and not disappointed. Such clarity and people can't hear the audio bleed from these when they're being used. Thoroughly recommend,can't find anything better,enjoy!
