which are considered by many one of the best pairs of headphones

Dillan, Amazon

  • Summary: Before I purchased these headphones, I made sure I did a lot of research. I regularly saw them being compared to Audio Technica's ATH M50's, which are considered by many one of the best pairs of headphones.

Is this product strictly necessary?

  • Summary: I am far from being a technophobe and I think it is important to know why you want to buy these. Unless you want to spend a lot of time wearing headphones whilst you're using your mobile phone, you will not get maximum value for money.

Almost a four star product

Chris Chalk "Chris", Amazon

  • Summary: First off - these are huge. I mean absolutely huge, closed cup headphones. You really have to like this kind of retro styling but don't be surprised to get some appraising looks on the commute to work.

Good headphones, with some major flaws

  • Summary: Buying a pair of headphones without trying them first is always a risk, that's why I read a lot (and I mean a lot) of online reviews before pulling the trigger on those ones. Al the reviews were very good, and since the overall feedback was so positive I thought that this was a safe buy.

Not for me

A. Crisan, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: I ended up returning these because they looked huge on me and after trying them on my commute I found I couldn't wear them for more than 20-30 minutes, which was a big disappointment, as I had read that they are very comfortable and this was one of the main reasons I decided to buy them.

Amazing for 2 months then...

  • Summary: I originally rated these 5 stars because of the spectacular soundstage that I still think is the best at its pricepoint. However,after only 2 months of minimal use the left driver has totally died.

Average sounding cans

Karan, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using these for a few months now. Very average sounding headphones. They're OK at isolating, they can do the job on the tube in London and when I'm out and about. They do look sleek and the cups are quite comfortable around the ears. Not much bass on these.
