Pros: soundstage, amazing bass and mids, non fatiguing, great all- arounder

Cons: highs are slightly veiled

I'll keep this review short, im a beginner, and this review are all my own opinions so please bear with me.  thank you! :smile:


This headphone sound so good for its price.


For me, its sq is almost excellent that every time i put this on, i always have a smile on my face.

Others may not appreciate this because the sound is warm or dark.


It really shines on its soundstage, bass and mids.


Soundstage- big or wide, lots of airiness, because of its open back design and the E.A.R., it makes you feel that you are in a live recording, or you are sitting in front of high end speakers.


Bass- Its not lacking neither overpowered. it's deep, controlled bass, also has a great mid bass, making the mids luscious.


Mids- It is very rich, or i would say very sexy.



Moving on,


the highs are slightly veiled, its there, but  for me it is lacking.


Overall, i think this is a great all arounder.  jazz, rock, classical etc... I would definitely recommend this headphone for all of us who loves music and cant afford high end gears :wink: thank you. Happy listening! :beyersmile:
