Pros: Excellent allrounder with no glaring weakness

Cons: Wish the cable was detachable

Just a overview of my observations:

 

Absolutely my favorite headphone so far:

 

Strengths:

Eu-phonic headphone - music is so enjoyable - beautiful is the word that often comes to mind

Great quality and quantity of bass

Very nice extended treble - no sibilance problems

Enjoyable mids I have enjoyed the overall presentation so far

Nice sound stage - for a closed headphone

Beautiful build - design

high quality cable

Price I paid in Australian dollars above for the incredible workmanship that went into making this headphone

Very scalable - sounds great amazingly from a 200.00 sound card

 

Weaknesses

Mids - can seem a little recessed on some amps and with some sources

No detachable cable

Sound Isolation is not very good for closed headphone my Edition 8 is far better.

Some headfiers have reported build quality issues with the screws securing the headband

Some people are paying 800.00 more than what I paid - seems less value at that price
