  • 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. With that said, it is amazing how 'airy' these headphones feel. They offer tight bass with punch which is quite unique to its class.
  • 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

  • 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. Although, when I sampled dub step on them (not really a fan of the genre) I could get the bass poppin' by changing the EQ.
  • 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"

Decent, quality and comfortable.

  • Summary: I have very limited knowledge and experience on headphones and music, just wanted to get decent, quality and comfortable headphones when i need them. I bought two pairs, one for wife, as they are on special here in Amazon. The built and sound quality are good, obviously much better than headphones i have tried before. And it has been the most comfortable headphones I have tried.

Very nice... does the job and more.

  • Summary: Perfect for the office... no one can hear the noises in my head (the voices are there and they never stop!!) The only negative is the base is pretty low on these and I need to use an EQ to get the sound I really like out of them and an amp would probably be better.

Wrong target?

ROMANES EUNT DOMUS, Amazon

  • Summary: While these headphones are aimed squarely at iPhone users you really need to connect them to a decent hifi to understand their full capability. Restricting them to mp3 or similar formats is a bit like buying a Ferrari and then putting parafin in the tank. Give them a quality source and they really shine, the soundstage they present is excellent and very natural.

Fantastic sound

Glen Schneider, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: These headphones are simply great. They have very large ear cups that surround your ears. They give a very expansive airy sound, not something you expect from closed back speakers. The only one true downside is the fact the speaker cable is so short. 3 times now I have ripped it from the socket. Truly annoying.

The really Reference...

Gregor Wollnik, Amazon
3 October 2013
  • Summary: Have now some over or on the ear headphones tested, including B & W P5, Sennheiser momentum, inspiration and not least the monster Beyerdynamic P 770 Pro in the 80 ohm version. The sound is for my taste the real reference among the mobile headphones, as is not even the Beyerdynamic with, certainly not in terms of comfort.

Preis-Leistungsverhältnis überzeugt

  • Summary: + Der Bügel ist aus Metall. Wenngleich die Hörer an jedem Ende immer noch durch häufigen Gebrauch und durch die Plastik dort wohl abbrechen können, so vermittelt der Bügel aus wenige Millimeter dickem, gebogenem Metall (mit Polsterung zum Kopf) für ein gewisses Gefühl von Stabilität. Weitere Teile imitieren zumindest Metall, doch würde ich meinen, dass es meist nur silberner Kunststoff ist.
