  • Excerpt: sometimes we ask our friends and family to listen to our audio products, most of the time responses are good or something like that, but when i asked three different people to test the sound of edition 8, they continued listening and i had to stop them to ask the same question again and their smiles told all. So if your sound source is good, it will perform like a true rock star.
  • Pros: Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish

  • Summary: They remain my favorites for around a year, and I have no urge to get anything else. Premium over other versions was minuscule at the time (price in USD is converted from what I paid in EUR (1140 incl Value Added Tax)), no sonic differences they say, and I had no chance to find out; the brown leather, walnut sliver and different finish were really appealing.   Good isolation, I mainly use them in public transportation (no worries - nobody recognises these).
  • Pros: Perfect full size portable cans; replace earmuffs, and do so with some style.
  • Cons: Too darn expensive; cannot wear a hat; too warm in summer

  • Summary: This headphone has outstanding Design and Perfomance. Very balanced and natural sound one thing i have to talk about is its ear pad. this earpad is just attatched with double side tape............... I can't believe that they just used tape to hold them...and it is over $1000 headphone..... but it sounds the best out of my portable system.
  • Pros: Design,Sound,Isolation
  • Cons: Price,Ear Pad

  • Summary: For some years now I've been pondering a good transportable headphone rig, including a good pair of closed cans.  I tried the ED9s twice and was disappointed that I didn't feel they were any improvement over the Denon D5000s I had at the time, especially with the S-Logic making the sound more as if it were in my head than other headphones. With reports that the ED8s were more neutral, I decided to give them a go.
  • Pros: Easy to drive, lots of bass if you like that and very comfortable
  • Cons: Not very resolving for headphones at their price point.

  • Summary: Hey guys, it's me Triple8Fidelity. This is my first review and also venture into head-fi.   First of all, i'm a music student at Monash University specializing in 'cello. I listen to a lot of  classical music works, many which I have played in e.g. Beethoven's 9th, Carmina Burana, Elgar cello concerto as a soloist and Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker suite to name a few.
  • Pros: Wide sound stage with strong all round performance in bass, treble and midrange underpinned by only 30 ohms of impedance.
  • Cons: Short cable with minute quality loss with extension cable. Metal plating leads to substantial fingerprint marks and no hard carry case provided.

  • Summary: Here is the deal. I really don't care how they look. I don't care how they are built (they are headphones for god-sakes). I don't care if they smudge or whatever else. So you won't see me wasting your time reading about that stuff.    I will tell you that on their own, these headphones are good. That is until I made two very big improvements that made these lift off to the moon!
  • Pros: Soundstage
  • Cons: High highs can be a little sharp

  • Summary: If you listen to dance/club/dubstep/etc you will love these headphones. The bass is fantastic and there is clarity and detail in all spectrums. Soundstage is good for being a closed variant. However, when listening to acoustic recordings, they sometimes seem rather boring/analytical if comparing with headphones with an open design.   The build quality is really top-notch. The manufacturer offers a free 5 year warranty extension.   Comfort is good and they look classy.
  • Pros: Excellent bass, airy for being a closed variant, build quality, warranty
  • Cons: Soundstage not on par compared to open headphones

  • Excerpt: Palladium купил в Германии с усилителем Lehmann Linear USB, с которым и использую (поэтому отзыв, по сути, к паре сразу). С дорогими наушниками раньше опыта не было, только более 10 лет живу с разными домашними hi-end системами. Слушаю 90% классику и немного поп типа Lara Fabian. Поначалу напрягал звук в районе 3 кГц, у женских голосов, становившийся словно стоячая волна в комнате (не знаю, как это у наушников называется). Но оказывается, нужен был прогрев.
  • Pros: высокое разрешение - все линии в полифонии отделимы друг от друга, чёткий бас, удобство на голове; звук спроецирован не между ушами, а вокруг головы
  • Cons: есть пик на высокой частоте (около 8 кГц), поэтому иногда подчёркивает сибилянты, но это зависит и от записи
