Really good sounding headphone with incredible bass. I owned these for about six months. They sound powerful for lack of a better word. Definitely a V-shaped sound signature. The bass can be a bit much sometimes, a bit sloppy, but I usually find it quite enjoyable. Just a really fun headphone to listen to. That being said I don't feel that they quite compare to some of the other $1000 offerings from competitors (in terms of overall sound quality) or really outperform less expensive models by that much (Pro900, He-400, dt990 for example). I also didn't care for the headband, the earcups always slid when I didn't want them to and I've read a few stories of the cups falling off at the hinge, which I don't find hard to believe since it's attached by one small screw. Overall I enjoyed these, but I do prefer a "colored" sound signature. These certainly aren't neutral, but a very fun listen.
