  • Summary: First thing you're going to notice with these cans is, of course, the bass. When properly amp'd, these things almost pop off your head. I haven't heard the JVC sz2000 or the Sony XB1000, but these have the most bass I've experienced so far.
  • Pros: Great low end, very punchy, crisp highs
  • Cons: Mids suffer a bit

  • Summary: These phones have largely been ignored because AT did a lousy job of advertising and promoting them. I took a flyer on them hoping that they'd be a great portable for commmuting and use at work. After more than a year with them, I'd gladly make the purchase again.
  • Pros: great bass and better soundstage + midrange than people expect from a $170 phone
  • Cons: no carry case

  • Summary: Got a secondhand WS99. Previous owner got them on (closeout) sale for 110€ and he was selling it for 60€. Just 4 months old. Couldn't resist. First of all...what poor packaging. no case or cover. Just two cables. Both quite short. And pretty cheap looking.
  • Pros: Sound, Bass, Weight, Looks on your head, great close out pricing
  • Cons: Open or closed, Portable or not, Not exactly a premium feel to it in looks, accessories or gimmicks

  • Pros: Style, sound, soundstage, detachable cables
  • Cons: No carrying pouch

  • Cons: Unremarkable design, Sound needs more subtlety and precision at this price
