Pros: punchy bass, strong mids, detailed

Cons: mids are a bit distant sounding, highs are recessed (correctable)

I bought this headphone twice, because I like it a lot. They're good for the money, not perfect but definitely great. First, I'll talk about build quality and comfort, then efficiency and sound. (and also a bonus category of how moddable they are)   TL;DR review: 9.5/10 overall. Sound/value easily 10/10. Comfort 9/10. Build quality 8/10. Does not need amp, benefits from one.

Their size and shape make them great for home or office use. But, I doubt if you wanna be carrying these around with you.   Pros: -Clear and defined mids and highs, without the harshness in the upper mids that can often accompany such clarity. -No distortion on the low-end. No fartiness or...
