Great set of headphones

Osanida, Crutchfield

  • 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.

  • 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)

  • Summary: Most cans will wear you out in short order. Not these ultra comfy tanks. Yes, they are huge but they sound wonderful.
  • Pros: Sound, of course. No listening fatigue. Great studio heavy built cans. They sound awesome and will last.
  • Cons: Price. What can you do?

  • Summary: Really comfortable headphones with great sound. Had to get an extension for the cord, but my setup is rather far away from where I'm sitting.

  • Summary: Introduction I got these headphones around Christmas time in 2012. I loved the design at first sight, I find it understated and classy where others find it hulking and ugly, it's all a matter of opinion. After the excitement of unboxing them and plugging them straight into my phone I was horrified by how quiet, lifeless and lacking of detail they were. But rest assured this first impression didn't last long.
  • Pros: Great detail especially in the treble, Well defined bass, Outstanding soundstage, Extremely comfortable, Built like a tank
  • Cons: Treble can be harsh at louder listening, Not enough bass for bassheads (Not a con for many)
