  • Summary: First, let me thank the people over at Audio-Technica for sending me a sample of these for review. You rock! I was a bit skeptical at first about how these would sound, but when I put them on and started listening, I was instantly blown away.
  • Pros: Very tight and controlled bass, energetic treble, excellent cup swiveling feature for portable functionality, makes electronic music come alive
  • Cons: Strong clamping force at first, build feels a bit fragile, V-Shaped signature not best for mid-centric music, treble can get a bit splashy

  • Summary: Before I get into the gory details, I have to start with saying that I bought these refurbished for $34 on amazon, which is an absolute steal(boosting up my Value rating). If you can get them before they're out of stock, absolutely grab a pair. Now then, onto the good stuff.
  • Pros: Tight Bass, Overall nice consumer sound
  • Cons: Uncomfortable as all hell

  • Summary: I love classic and rock music. And actually my kinds of music works really better through these. Each time I listen to music, I can feel the soul of the music. Honestly I used a SoundMagic ES18 budget pairs for 3 years I assume. And they worn out, one speaker is dead, unfortunately.
  • Pros: Well Balanced, Build Quality, Clear & Smooth Bass, Crisp Trebles
  • Cons: 90 degree swivel makes noise when moving, Not for noise reduction

  • Conclusion: D’un point de vue bass-lover il n’y a rien à redire, ce casque est ce que bien trop de modèles devraient suivre. S’il n’est pas exceptionnel qualitativement, sa signature est maitrisée et son approche polyvalente, en résulte un son large et détaillé, sans réel défaut autre que sa prépondérance dans...
