Pros: Build quality, comfort. 'Fun' sound

Cons: Everything else

I will keep this ultra short. I spent 3 weeks with these and by the end I had had enough.

 

At first they 'wow' the user with a lovely full bodied and detailed sound but after a few hours (these had already been listened to for well in excess of 20 hours by a friend) the cracks start to appear.

That lovely bass extension that was so impressive at first begins to tire, that detail in the highs begins to draw attention to the lack of mids. That price tag begins to look ridiculous given how little you have to spend these days for a good set of cans.

 

All in all I cannot recommend these at their price point. Sure they look and feel great but if you are even remotely serious about your music look elsewhere.

I read that after break in these things need great amount of power. Via iphone it's ok, via fiio e12 it's big but a little too dark, via alo national it's not enough bass, but via rxmk3b+ I must say, it's almost perfect for portable listening on a hifi level.
