Love Them


Pros: excellent sound,non fatiguing, Mids, Easy to drive, very musical.Forgiving

Cons: Retail expensive, light highs

I am new here and had headaches reading about headphones. I am no audiophile and just have a laptop to enjoy my music from. No "gear" as yet. I love vocals so no V shaped signature for me.

I wouldn't use this on my home rig really, but for on the go with no amp I'd rate it 4.5 stars. There's good detail without highlighting the deficiencies in my source which is quite a feat.
