Summary: I bought these for a DJ friend in India...he ignored my suggestions of alternatives, including the SP version of the HD25s I own. Anyway, when he suggested these I looked for a review here on Headfi and couldn't find one, so thought I'd leave my thoughts....
Summary: I'm really loving these headphones. They have a very clear, balanced, and articulate sound, which I didn't expect at all coming from a compact, closed-back headphone that I picked up on closeout last year for an extremely low price.
Pros: Balanced sound; good amount of dynamic bass. Solid build quality. Foldable & compact. Comfortable. Very good isolation of external noise.
Cons: Not a big fan of the coiled cord. Mostly plastic material. Needs amp?
Excerpt: Discreet headset, sound, efficient I bought it after a K181DJ AKG , good sound without too much bass (I like), the right atrium does not work, because of definitely cut inside to force rotate the ear wire.
Excerpt: Casque discret, solide, efficace J'ai racheté après celui-ci un AKG k181dj , bon son sans trop de basses (comme j'aime), l'oreillette droite ne marche plus, à cause du fil certainement coupé à l’intérieur à force de pivoter les oreillettes.
