  • Summary: So, I've had the chance to try the pair my uncle owns, both in noisy (busy streets of Vienna) and silent environment. You probably should take this with a grain of salt as I can only compare this to my good old HiFiMAN HE-400i, which is basically a totally different world. Let's get to it, shall we.
  • Pros: Nice bass, detailed sound, very good for rock, nice (removable!) cable, punchy bass and highs hitting at the same time

  • Pros: Good soundstage, great build and durability.
  • Cons: Mid bass.
