Summary: These cans are my main monitoring headphones for my recording on my laptop. The first thing that I noticed immediately was how comfortable it is, with thick paddings on the headband and soft pads that create a reasonable seal without feeling like a clamp. Coming from IEMs this is definitely a whole lot better, same can be said for the soundstaging, though in headphone terms they are only average, a decent open dynamic headphone will beat this.
Summary: I got these to replace the third set of broken headphones that were made with the kind of plastic that seems intentionally designed to eventually snap, so the metal rods were the main reason I got them. Very pleased with the audio, durability and comfort level, especially for the price. I can wear these on and off all day without feeling like it's only a matter of time before they break.
Pros: Extremely comfortable and light, but not too light. Very good sound quality for the price. Very good (but not excellent) bass. Nice long cable.
