Excerpt: When I got these headphones I was looking for something that could handle a bit of anything without adding it's own effects and profiles. I use these for audio/video editing and listening to music and no matter what I do they seem to impress me more and more. My audio editing has gotten more accurate (pitch and tone control) and my music doesn't have that boomy hollow bass anymore.
Summary: I'm definitely warming to these now, after owning a pair for a month. My initial reaction was the difference in bass compared to my previous set (technics RP-DH1200). The bass was far more prominent and in your face with my old ones. I definitely have to turn the shure's up to a higher level volume on the mixer, but after getting some mileage on them i'm really appreciating the all round sound.
Summary: These are seriously Brilliant. The sound is mind blowing, so much depth, clarity, separation, immersive experience with ALL types of music. Beautifully balanced, punchy bass, crystal clear sound. The quality is Audiophile worthy and that is no lie. Wow! They isolate sound magnificently, and on the Tube NO ONE can hear your music as leakage is minimal! I mean that! Very comfortable to wear, light weight enough to wear for long periods too.
Summary: Fantastic set of headphones! Sound Quality is top notch with crisp tones throughout the range. At lower volumes these sound pretty average but they really shine at higher volumes where the bass and mids tones punch the ear drums with pure excellence! Build Quality "Tenouttaten" Although it seems a bit squeaky/clumsy the plastic is strong enough to put up with everyday use and the matte paint conceals any scratches that may appear overtime.
