Pros: Detail, clarity, soundstage width
Cons: Unnatural soundstage, unnatural lack of bass, supremely uncomfortable, looks like bathroom hardware
This is a very detailed and fast headphone. Soundstage is very wide, but unnatural sounding. Lack of bass makes the overall sound very plasticky and artificial. My BOSE triports sound better overall.
The pads are about as comfortable as the Beyerdynamics', however, the bumps on the underside of the headband dig into your skull. I couldn't wear them for more than 20 minutes without having to reposition them.
Other than looking like bathroom hardware strapped to your head, there are elastic bands which help adjust the earcups which will inevitably degrade over time.
I've heard better headphones for this price, namely the DT880, D2000, and HD600/650.
Largest soundstage I've heard from headphones. Very fast and detailed headphones. However uncomfortable with artificial sound.
