Summary: This is my first review on head-fi. Please excuse if you don't find extensive or very helpful.
First I would like to explain sound signature. I am new to this audiophile business and will try to describe sound as best as I can.
Headphones have strong and impact full bass, not overpowering, clear mids, not very detailed but decent, clear and detailed treble.
Summary: Accessories: These ship with a leather drawstring carrying bag and that’s it.
Design and Build Quality: The lightweight plastic construction of the headphones themselves is more durable than one might expect when picking them up but they fold flat for storage and the dual entry cable is thicker than many competitors I’ve tested and seems capable of dealing with day to day usage.
Pros: Nice, Well Defined Bass, Fashionable, Good Treble Extension
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.
The Look: I personally love the styling of the Vmoda Crossfade line of headphones over almost all others, but the minimalistic look Audio Technica uses I think is beautiful and not all up in your...
Pros: Tight Bass, Overall Clear Sound
Cons: Razor Sharp Highs, Uncomfortable as all Hell, Need to be Eq'd
Summary: I used and Htc One S and fiio e11 (no bass change)
*this is by no mean hi fi, but then again both of these headphones are entry level and not reall "hi fi" either
Well these things look great when you look at them straight on, but when you actually wear them the parts that connect the driver portion sticks out awkwardly and looks kinda funny.
Pros: Looks(not on your head though lol), relatively clear, natural bass
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. These headphones really make electronic music shine, especially with more atmospheric songs. DnB, electro and dubstep are perfectly reproduced.
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: Fresh out of the box, with 0 burn-in hours, I put their headphones on my head I immediately noticed the signature hard-clamps of an Audio-Technica and an exceptionally clarity of its sound.
Demoed on FLAC quality audio using tunes from Daft Punk (dance), Lost Fingers (jazz crossover), Best of Chesky and Audiophile tests (jazz), Sitti Navarro (live bossa), Damien Marley (reggae/hiphop crossover), Deadmau5 (house), Norah Jones (classic jazz), everything played nicely.
Pros: Stylish, Build quality, Punchy bass, Clear mids and highs
Cons: Hard clamp, ear pad size is between an over-ear and on-ear style
Summary: Its not often that I use headphones but when I do I want good sound quality. These headphones do not fail at this. The sound is very clear and the bass response is great. I listen to a wide variety of music and these headphones have managed to reproduce some very clear vocals and some thumping bass for hip hop. Also worth noting is the sound isolation. When i have them on it cuts out almost all background noise. Also it stops the sound leak very very well.
Summary: After using the free headphones which came with my Xperia T I decided I needed to upgrade. I was looking for premium headphones at a budget (ideally under £70). These headphones have exceeded my expectations, truly awesome sound with such depth. The build quality is sturdy and they look very trendy. As mentioned it other reviews, they are slightly tight when around the neck. If you are unsure of buying, go with it - you will not be disappointed!
Fantastic pair of headphones if your into your music

Summary: These are great headphones, they can get uncomfortable after a few hours of use but this isn't a huge deal for me after all if your paying £60 there not going to be perfect. Sound is fantastic very flat, very clean but I would recommend getting an amp to boost the bass or download power amp if you can brilliant thing about this is you can customize the sound so it can be your sound. Other plus points...they look good feel solid cant praise them enough really.
Summary: incredible sound, would recomend getting the Fiio E6 headphone amplifier as it does really add to the experience. only downside is they look kinda flimsy ( in actual fact there really not ) just thought id put that out there, hope this at all helpful :)
