Summary: J&R has a great price[...]. Happy to do business with them once again. The overall performance of this headphone rivals anything double the price. And in most cases surpasses that when talking about closed, as well as every open HP I have had the chance to demo. Once burn is complete(Shure recommends 175 hours or burn), these have been compared to $1000+ options in some reviews. If you are not impressed out of the box, give them time.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: nice can,great sound quality,the only problem is that it is heavy and bulky,and the cable is not easy to carry out at all,basically it gives great performance,but I have to stop using it once for a while just to give my ears a break.
Summary: These are great for the price, I've heard headphones such as Grado SR325i's, Beyerdynamic DT880's, AKG k701's, Audio Technica ES7's, and Shure E500's. These definitely don't sound as good as the Grados or Beyerdynamics that I own, but they don't leak sound and they isolate well, making them great in their own ways.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Good highs, Great bass, Great Build Quality, Versatile
Summary: After doing research for 2 months or so I decided to get this headphones, mostly for gaming (PS3) and listening music on my computer (iMac) and boy where they worth it, I am not going to get to specifics like many of the other reviews, I'm just going to say that I'm a picky person when it comes to electronics or gadgets, and this headphones are built with quality, sound precision, and good price.
Summary: I am a 2nd generation user of Bose Noise Canceling Earphones. My most recent model is the QC3 which I have used on international plane flights for some "quiet comfort" and listening to my iPod. I also have used these for iPod-listening at home. On flights, the Bose are fine -- they quiet things down and the music comes through OK in those circumstances. At Christmas time, one of my children brought home his new Shure SRH840 headphones and suggested I try them.
Summary: These headphones are AWSOME! At first I wasn't sure with the sound, but I turned off the EQ on my Itouch and holy cow amazing. They are dialed in that you don't need and EQ. I was so pleased I couldn't take them off for hours. Plus I can't hear the wife yelling at me! Two birds with one stone. I did about a month research to get a good quality sound at a good price. This was my choice, and I'm happy with it.
Summary: All I can say is that the listening experience is stunning - absolutely beautiful and far, far better than the high-end ear buds I've been using to listen to my music. I don't have a place in my life right now to crank my music through speakers, and the time I can get to enjoy my music is now improved by a factor of 100. I can't say enough about how great these headphones sound.
Pros: Fantastic bass and literally stunning sound.
Cons: They are big, over the ear headphones - and so have that drawbacks. But the sound overcomes this for me.
Summary: Really, really impressed with these. I use them for creating music in my studio, although I have monitors I tend to use headphones when creating and monitors to do final mixdown. These are the best headphones I've ever owned. Enough bass, but not too much color. Comfortable. I've had all types of Sony's, Sennheisers, and AKGs over the years and these are the best I've had. Love em.
Summary: I bought these from Guitar Center on a whim. I was buying an audio interface, Propellerhead's Reason, and Propellerhead's Record at the same time, and figured I could do with some decent headphones for recording/monitoring purposes. I am in no way a recording professional, but I do consider myself to have some pretty good ears, in terms of being able to differentiate between good and poor quality playback.
