Summary: If you are more interested in the sound and build quality than what's trendy, you can't beat Grado. They have been making very nice headphones for a long time, and were recommended to me by an audiophile friend.
Pros: Sound, construction, and comfort are excellent, especially considering the price.
Summary: Set-up: Pro-ject debut carbon turntable w/ 2m Red Bellari VP-130 preamp First budget audiophile set-up and was recommended these. Never in my life I thought music can sound so beautiful. IT DOES NOW! First course of action is to play Norah Jones pressed from QRP on 200g. These cans scream! Same goes for my Radiohead - OK Computer uk pressing. One song in particular I knew she whistles in.
Pros: Pure natural sound compared to others in the same price point.
Cons: The two cords on both sides gets annoying for me.
Summary: These headphones sound amazing, sound isolation is zero, but I knew that before buying. However the headphones do hold tightly and maybe because I wear glasses it gets uncomfortable after about an hour of wear. I think the headphones look kinda cool, in a retro kind of way. But I think the build quality is a bit subpar for the amount of money paid, the cups are all plastic. Overall happy with the headphones though.
Excerpt: The Grado sound can be fun, but eventually you get sick of the coloration an want something a bit more natural-sounding. Still, these are good for the price and a good entry-level headphone. Great for modders, too.
Summary: I purchased these on the advice of a friend, who has a pair. These headphones are exactly what he said they would be...awesome! I tried his before I purchased and they were really good. I would recommend these to a friend, and I would buy another pair if these were lost or stolen!!!
Summary: Nice headphones, I have a large head and they fit better then anything I have ever used, I'm not a DJ but vary happy in my 2 days of use Coolness Factor" I'm 48 years old not 8 coolness factor means nothing to me, Its all about the sound Build Quality: going to post again later Comfort: I couldn't say enough about how well they fit (on a large head) in no time its like I'm not wearing anything, this is a big bonus for me, good job Noise Reduction: lol open headphones and...
