Pros: Very clear mids and highs

Cons: Slighty bass light

Hi all :D,after about 4 months of saving and debating,i finally picked up a pair of these beauties.

Just over 2 months of owning them,and i feel the need to do a review on them.

 

Keep i mind i'm not an audiophile,just a student who loves his music. 

 

The phones came in a blister pack and contains the phones themselves,2 cables,and 1/4 inch adapter.The cables are 1.4m i believe and 3m in length.They start with a right angle 2.5mm back and terminate in a 3.5mm straight jack.

 

Out of the box,they were a little bass light and the highs were slightly sibilant,but after a week of burn in,the sound became much more balanced.

 

After 2 months, verdict.

 

Highs: Very crisp and clear

Mids: Clean and accurate

Low/bass: Extends down low,but is missing some of the "punch" bassheads crave. Hopefully and amp with bass boost (Fiio E11) can fix this.

 

Overall,these headphones are very comfortable,well built,good value,and quite balanced in terms of sound signature. They work well with almost all genres,a great buy,but an amp may help.

 

Will post pictures if requested

 

-Cheers

 

EDIT: Slightly muddy for music above 170bpm (techno)
