Summary: Construction is not perfect, but not bad. Cable suck's, but you can change it for better one. But what is important, sound is one of the best. Mids and highs are very clear and they do not figt each other, if you know what I mean. Sound stage could be better, but for closed headphones is ok. Bass is one of reasons I bought these headphones. It is not overbass, it is subbass, and very nice subbass. Even more expansive headphones can not push subbass as these do.
Summary: I bought these over a year ago now, and i can confirm they are a sound investment. The sound quality blew my mind when i first tried them, coming from only £20 headphones and earphones. The highs/mids are perfect and the bass is fantastic. Although not the be-all end-all of bass production, they will have your eyes rolling back for the first few months of having them.
Summary: I highly recommend the Q40s to any bassheads who want some decent headphones. They are far superior (in my opinion) to the ATHM50s, and to any headphone of a comparable price, or cheaper. The blow the Beats Studios out of the water in the sense bass quality, amount and value. Believe me, I bought 14 pairs of headphones that were meant to be "bassy" and these were the only ones that were up to my requirements.
Summary: I picked up these headphones for £49 just after Christmas, which seems a very reasonable price, especially given the replaceable lead, which I am hoping will add hugely to the longevity of these headphones. They sound excellent, with a good balance of sound in general, I would definitely recommend them for the sound aspect. So far, I have found them a little uncomfortable, although this may partly be due to my extended usage of them.
Summary: I listen mainly to rap and R&B and I needed a new pair of headphones so, after a hard research trough forums and stores, I decided that these ones will be my choice but...oh, what a surprise when I saw the price!! The regular price was 109 pounds or 160 euros here in Spain, but I found them here for 49 pounds, sold by MusicMatters. The delivery was super fast (just 4 days) and the product quality is outstanding.
Summary: Those are top entry level audiophile headphones with very detailed range and decent bass (although the they do struggle on sub level bass such as those in Bassotronics - bass I love you) Well worth grabbing them at £59 when they were advertised at that price
Summary: The only reasonably priced headphones I've ever heard that can sparkle the high frequencies and still produce bass that shakes your face off. I compared these to a set of beats Audio headphones which were three times the cost, and these beat them (no pun intended) hands down in every department.
Summary: I'm still surprised for the sound quality that these headphones deliver. Great bass that doesn't blur the medium and treble sounds. They say that the cable is very likely to break down, but you can easily find 3.5mm cables with a thin connector. They also are quite uncomfortable. It will take some time until the pressure applied to your head is reduced, but you can speed it putting your headphones to your desktop computer chassis, or something wide enough (like a stack...
Summary: I purchased these to be used with the vrm box from focusrite. Obviously that means that some level of flatness is required for my needs, and while these headphones are a bit heavy on the bass, the size and quality of the drivers makes them a really good choice. Also, within the price range, at this time there are a limited number of options and depending on your needs, the q 40's can be your best pick.
