Pros: Awesome with string instruments
Messed around with the Elear and too bad it has to go back.
Very fancy looking headphone and has a nice solid feel. Fits nicely on my head and the thick long cable is not of an issue for me. I use heavier cables with my Hifiman.
Sound is very nice, especially with string instruments. Bass is very good and so is the "subbass". I used Bootsy Rescue MK2 to push this headphone to the next level. Sound stage, impact just became heaven.
Design and finish is great. It does creak a bit, but that isn't an issue once it's on your head.
Bad news is that the unit I messed with just didn't cut it above 57% volume on my PC. With zero EQ the driver starts to pop on the right side with volume above 57%. Not acceptable for unit in this price range. I have zero tolerance for this kinda crap from manufacturers that think it's ok to send out units with this kinda fault at this price range.
I feel the headphone is worth 400 if it worked ok and not the price that are asking for.
