Pros: Easy to drive, Tight and controlled bass. Very soft ear pads though can get hot over time. Nice soundstage.
Cons: Tooooo big. Sibilant. Mids are slightly recessed. Very "V" shaped.
So I got this headphones used on Amazon for €170 which I think is a pretty good deal. I mostly listen to alternative metal and rock. ( Korn, Deftones, Radiohead, System of a Down, etc.. )
Screams Premium. Nice box with soft clothing, two cables ( iPod compatible and a 3m long OFC cable ) and a decent carry case.
Looks a bit like the beats from the side. But it is very big and heavy (sorry smallheads). The ear cups are very soft but can get hot after long use.
These headphones are really good at the first listen when directly compared with the HD600s since it has a heavier bass (controlled and tight, which doesn't bleed into the mids)
Spend more time of with these I find that the mids are slightly recessed (lacking in detail).. not really too much but it is simply not comparable to HD600s (of course these are not mid centric phones)
The treble is not too much that it might get fatiguing but it is in the right proportion. It is also sibilant on many recordings I tested.
A very decent soundstage for a closed back. Almost similar to the HD600s.
Though these are 32ohms and can be driven by phones and iPods. I tried to use it on my Marantz HD DAC1 and it sounded a bit better/fuller.
Maybe my ears are tuned to HD600s and so these sound harsh to me both on the bass and treble side. But it does not mean these are bad headphones but I simply think these are not worth the premium price for the new ones. Find good used ones and you wont regret it.
