Pros: Used it for listening to pop, orchestral, jazz and trance, came out on a very great. Portable design is a great ++

Cons: The clamping mechanism makes it uncomfortable to wear on neck. Long, undetachable cables inhibits portability. Middle range doesn't seem quite crisp.

My first "expensive" headphones, so to speak. I-It's not like I'm that much into headphones or anything but, this headphone is the best pair I've ever listened to. I listen to all kind of music, though less often, even drum and bass (I'm not that much of a basshead). The sounds I hear in songs when using these are mostly crystal clear and very rich, but I couldn't help to overlook the lacking in crisp-ness over the mids. The bass response is, overall, good. Not too hard, neither too soft. The design is very ergonomic and the appearance is more than enough to do me good, but it's not like I'll bring it outdoors very often.


On the bad side, the mechanism clamps too much, making it unable for me to wear it on my neck. Kinda put off by how long the cables were, and that they were undetachable. It's not very significant of a con though as I rarely plan to bring it elsewhere.


Overall, I'm more than happy with these headphones. Just what I'd expect from Audio-Technica.
