Pros: Bass, Comfort, Sound Quality

Cons: Build Quality isn't brilliant.

I purchased these brand new for £49 and it was a good buy! They are very bass orientated so if that's not your sort of thing i doubt you will like these that much. The mids and highs sound great even though the bass is so strong. Comfort wise for me personally these are comfortable, but i don't have a large size head or large ears. I have seen some people saying these are uncomfortable and they have changed the pads to some Beyer ones. I could happily listen to these with the stock pads for a long period without them hurting my ears or the top of my head. The build quality doesn't seem brilliant, i own the Audio Technica ATH-PRO700MK2 and the build quality on them seems quite a bit stronger. The cable is removable and is actually pretty lengthy, the only downside to the cable is the fact that it is a thin cable and i prefer a coiled cable that stretches wherever i decide to use them. The jack is a 1/4 inch one but it screws off so you can use them with a portable media player or phone. They aren't heavy at all, in fact, they are actually very light. I used an Asus Xonar Essence STX and used the second gain option and they sounded fantastic. I did use them with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and they are 64ohms so they are pretty easy to drive, the volume from my phone was satisfactory using PowerAMP android player. I mainly listen to electronic music and i DJ for fun and these are a decent purchase. If like me you prefer headphones to be more bass orientated then these are great for listening to music with. They come with a carrying pouch which is of a leather material and the construction isn't bad. If you can grab them at a similar price to what i paid you are in for a treat! I would even say these are worth much more than what i paid for them.
