Summary: I've tried about two dozen pairs of headphones and I'm always looking for the absolute best pair for vocals. I also want forward sounding mids, but not too bad. My preference is also for highs that are not harsh or fatiguing. Being somewhat rolled off is ok.
Pros: Crystal clear vocals, neutral, lightweight, cheap, LOTS of detail, amazing Imaging, good soundstage, forward mids
Cons: Slightly rolled off highs, lack of bass to some, needs amp, coiled cable, requires burn-in
Summary: Like tdockweiler, I'm a fan of forward mids and these definitely bring it. They are excellent for vocals in general, not just for male vocals. They're relatively neutral sounding with a tight, controlled bass that doesn't extend too low.
Pros: Good sound, forward and clear mids, controlled bass.
Cons: Requires a good seal for bass, coiled cable, mediocre sub-bass
Summary: I have about 12 hours into this set of phones and I am impressed they do just about everything well not great. I have used them on my PS3 playing BFBC2 and I can hear things I have never heard before. I am able to locate where bullets are coming from and when someone is coming up the stairs.
Pros: Great Price, Decent sound, Lifetime Warranty
Summary: So, after many many hours of research I finally found a headphone that sounds good and it doesn't go over my limit of $70 in Canada. If I had lived in the U.S. I maybe would have picked up the CAL! instead... but I'm sure glad I didn't!
Pros: Great mids, looks rather stylish and great value.
Summary: Simply put? The lower midrange just isn't there.
Everything else, though, is pretty damned nice. Vocals? Clear as hell. Bass? Plenty of impact, and it gets LOW*
With that out of the way though, the lower midrange has problems. If I was feeling mean I'd some up with something witty, but **** you.
Pros: Easy to drive, stylish for full sized heaphones, nice combo of flavor and accuracy
Summary: I have recently been on an all-consuming quest to find a new set of headphone due to my renewed interest in audiophilia. Anyways, for the past while I have been intently auditioning several pairs of headphones to replace my aged AKG K240DFs (bought in the very late 80s, but just lack the “POW” I...
Summary: Well i have some mixed feelings for these headphones. They sound good for the money, but i don't find them very comfotable when have used them for more then a half hour. But let me jump further into the review, and tell you what i think more specific.
Pros: Cheap but good sound!
Cons: Ugly looking, not very comfi if you have big ears:-(
Summary: Bass: Definitely not an "extreme bass" headphone like the box says. There is a very slight bass tilt. Very tight bass. Very well extended with m50 pads.
Mids: Pretty forward overall. Amazing with vocals. Amazingly smooth mids.
Highs: Has a little bit of treble roll off.
Pros: Clarity, detail, forward mids, build quality, mono switch (great for using with mixers)
Cons: Highs are a little thin/hollow , stock pads are bad
Summary: I got mine for $35, and I can't figure out why. They sound perfect to me, with forward mids, clear vocals, and bass that thumps, but isn't in your face. Simply put: if you find these for under $80, snatch em up!
Pros: Great Sound Quality, Very Well Built, very good value for under $100
Cons: Not especially comfortable, coiled cable is a little heavy for walking around.
