Pros: DETAIL i'm hearing things i've never heard before, price, comfort.
Cons: a little bass heavy, has the typical "V" shaped response curve of buds aimed at the masses.
I bought these as a grab bag deal on massdrop. The first time i listened to them I was a little disappointed at the"V" shaped response curve so they sat on the shelf for a few months. The other day I decided to give the another chance. I went through my normal lineup of music and began to notice things I had never heard before. The sounds of piano pedals, deep breathes between notes, echos I had never noticed. they also have a fairly wide sound stage. You cant get this kind of detail for $22.50 anywhere else (as far as I know). With a little EQ adjustment these headphones really wake up. Once flattened out a little the amazing detail of spread to the vocals making these a joy to listen to. Almost any music sounds great but these play rock music very well.
