Pros: Sound good with pretty much everything, Look really, really nice, Great value at current price
Cons: Headband, non-detachable cable
I bought a pair of these recently, I'm one of many who took advantage of the $399 deal on these. I think for the price I paid they are a pretty good deal, but they do have some issues. They are certainly an attractive pair of headphones. Cable looks and feels a bit cheap, but the 1/4" plug is quite nice. To me these sound a lot like my D7000s, although certainly not as good, pretty close overall. They have robust bass response, although it lacks some extension and can sound a bit muddy at times. I found the midrange on these not quite as good as others describe, to me it sounded a bit strange. The highs on these seemed a bit dull to me. They do have a very "musical" (sorry) sound to them, which is what I find appealing about them. They are very forgiving of poor recordings and sound pretty good with everything. I did many side by side comparisons/litens with my Pro 900s. The 900s have a reputation for having a blurry and recessed midrange, but to me they sounded just a bit more clear/crisp than the W1000s and overall I decided to sell them for that reason, since I only wanted one pair of headphones in this price range. I must also say as many have before, the headband adjustment, or lack of, is really frustrating. If you move around too much they move around too, not a fan of this at all. Overall I would have to say I definitely recommend them for someone looking for a pair of headphones in this price range.
