  • Summary: I'm a newbie to hi-fi headphones, but I'll do what I can. The bass is fantastic, and I point this out because so many people complain about the lack of bass. It isn't this thumping and muddy sound, but very clear with an entire range to it. For bass-heads this might not be what you want.
  • Pros: Extremely clear, amazing bass, dynamic range, nice earmuffs, seems easy to drive
  • Cons: Non-detachable cable, huge, cable could use an extra 6"-12"

  • Summary: Personally, this is my favorite headphone. I gave this headphone a conservative 4/5 because I simply have not had the chance to try all the headphones in the world, so I'm sure there are some headphones that can hit 5/5. First of all, these are closed back headphones with a good amount of isolation.
  • Pros: Very spacious, tight bass with punch, sparkle treble region, easy to drive
  • Cons: Some people might not like the treble region, the cable seems flimsy
