Summary: For the price I thought they would be a bit better. The materials are nothing special. The cable is kind of cheap but I do know in their newest version of it the cable is improved. I think you need an amp for these which is never something I want to do.
Summary: Having gone from the absolutely awful Sony MDR-XB500s directly to these, I was relatively impressed. Only relatively, though. Now that I own Audio-Technica ATH-M50s with non-airtight velour replacement pads and a Fiio E11 without using the bass boost feature, I've come to truly appreciate the...
Pros: Will satisfy bassheads, restrained highs are forgiving, very durable and good-looking
Cons: Too much bass for me, drowned lower mids, upper mids are pushy
Summary: Let me start by saying that I am no expert when it comes to sound. I am not very good at using what I like to call "Audiophile terminology". Anyways, on to the review.
-Dell Inspiron 15
-Samsung Galaxy Q
-Sony Xperia S
-iPod touch 2nd gen
-iPod nano 5th gen
-iPod nano 6th gen
Pros: Light. Sturdy. Compact. Bass (for those who like it). Comfortable for a few hours. Remote and mic. Easy to EQ. Nice design. Nice case.
Cons: Bass. Recessed mids. Muddy. Bloated. The wire, Plug.
Summary: There is no sugar-coating it, this 'phone has a dominant low end and a murky one at that. I find that with some eq'ing I can get a pretty good sound out of these but there is no hiding the bass heavy bias.
Great controls and design. I never realized how handy it is to go wireless until I got these.
