Nothing major to add here. I have been searching for a long time for a closed portable that sounds good, looks good and is genuinely portable (ie. no 3m coiled cables). I think this is the closest to that I have found. They have a bit too much bass emphasis to be perfect but their detail, resolution and soundstage is excellent, which makes the bass less intrusive and they have a lovely smooth, thick but natural texture. They are also very forgiving of less than perfect source material and very efficient, which means they sound great straight out of your DAP or smart phone.

 

They are really well made, not quite as nice as the B&W P5, but very nice, much nicer than the Sony R1s. They are not truly over-ears IMO, the ear cups are too small to fit around any but the smallest ears, so they sort of sit half over and half on the ears. But what you lose in comfort you gain in a lower profile.
