  • Summary: From dance to metal, folk to pop, rock to Balinese gamelan, these cans shine with their relentless detail, wide soundstage and clarity. What they lack in low-end presence they make up for in brightness and high-end clarity
  • Pros: Accurate sound quality; super-detailed high-end; ideal as reference headphones for mixing; excellent cabling.
  • Cons: Bass isn't too powerful; no 6.5mm-3.5mm adaptor in the box.
