Pros: Audio is precise, full bodied, richly resonating and so natural and neutral, comfort
Cons: RIght hinge broke after use of 2 weeks......clumsy design... built not sturdy, hinges are too plastic
For expensive headphones such as this, my litmus test is one of Beethoven's 9th symphony. For this pair of babies, it was London Symphony Orchestra – Symphony No. 1 In C Major, Op. 21: II. Andante Cantabile Con Moto. And this took me to Beethoven nirvana!
Now I am saving for Shure's SRH1840.
Unfortunately the right hinge broke suddenly without rhyme or reason after only 2 weeks of ownership. With other owners complaining about the same thing. It must be a manufacturing's fault. I am disappointed because other wise I would have given it 5 stars for the sound quality.
