Good Headphones, But Too Harsh For Me

Packer from Elk River, MN, Sonic Electronix
20 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I was very excited to give these a listen after reading so many good things about them. That excitement was short lived when I put them on and listened to my favorite rock songs, which these are praised for reproducing so well. To clarify, I currently own AKG Q701's, Phillipps Fidelio X1's, Audio Technica M50's and Fischer Audio DBA-02 MKII. I am no stranger to good sound. That said, these are not for me.

Great headphones, as long as you don't mind sound leakage

vacciniumovatum from Seattle, WA, Sonic Electronix
27 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The headphones are large but relatively light. The sound is great. But they are open-air headphones with an big open area in the back of the headphone. Lots of sound leakage. And it doesn't take a lot of power to produce enough sound. As long as those around you don't mind hearing your sound, you will enjoy these headphones.

Can't do better

Robert from Santa Cruz, CA, Sonic Electronix
17 September 2013
  • Conclusion: It isn't possible to get better sound than from these. Different, yes, but better is in the ear of the beholder and my very critical, and very experienced ears say they are perfectly balanced. There are phones that sound different and might sound better to any given person depending on taste but the total absence of non-linear distortion with these makes them moldable to any other acoustic response and coloration exactly. i.e. season to taste.

  • Summary: I bought it as second hand beacause I want it as burned in.. it looks cool, vintage style but the construction has problems. The performance is mostly spectacular, especially for the money you spent. Technically it is but crisp and also flat bassy headphone .Mids and highs are nearly crystal clear. It tends to have some very slight bass distortion at peak volume . The flat bass thing is also a bit shadowing mids and especially deep lows in some genres.
  • Pros: spectacular feed response , very good soundstage, high sensivity, crisp detailed sound, mids&trebs
  • Cons: construction, bass distortion at peak volume, shadows deep lows so bass is flat

Good headphones

Luc from Montreal, Canada, Sonic Electronix
10 May 2012
  • Conclusion: I am quite satisfied with the quality of the sound. Some people may find these uncomfortable. Bear in mind that after a break-in period, they will become comfortable. Since these are over-ear and maintain a continuous pressure on your ears, I have found that when I bite down (something we all do occasionally and unconsciously), I actually muffle the sound somewhat. A minor annoyance. It seems to have improved with the break-in.

Nice headphones but not really comfortable

Maxime from Quebec, Canada, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: The sound with these headphones is really great but there are some downsides. They are not really comfortable after a long session and they leak a lot of sound.

  • Summary: Acabo de conseguir estos auriculares para sumarlo a la familia, y la verdad que me ha dejado muy conforme, recién escuche un par de albumes y tienen una respuesta en frecuencia muy agradable, los agudos no son incisivos, los graves son profundos y controlados, y la presencia de frecuencias medias no es exagerada. Yo los recomiendo como todos, he quedado muy satisfecho.
  • Pros: Comodidad, respuesta en frecuencia, diseño, precio
  • Cons: Ninguno

  • Summary: Buying these, changed the way I listen to music   I HATE THESE HEADPHONES, THEY TURNED ME INTO A AUDIOPHILE they taught me that there is more to music, then what I was listening to   Before, on my Senn HD 201s, I could hear the music These, make me listen to the music   I hear sounds and tones that before, I didn't know existed in the music the sound stage is wide and amazing   Cover one side of the open phones and the music cuffs out.
  • Pros: Amazing Audio, great cord, basic design
  • Cons: Swiveling headphones, headband, earpads, the cable connections

  • Summary: First "audiophile" approved heaphones I purchased.  They have introduced me to subtleties in my music I never new existed.  I am now listening to a lot more music than before. From my fiio e7 they are perfectly powered and give just a fantastically rich, detailed sound. For anyone who is wondering what all this audiophile nonsense is about, buy these and get back to me if it really is all nonsense afterall.  I'm sure your opinion will have changed.
  • Pros: Moderate Cost, excellent sound/price ratio, retro styling, decent build quality
  • Cons: A little uncomfortable for more than 2 hours listening sessions
