Pros: Extraordinary soundstage, enough base, clear treble
Cons: A bit heavy
I saw that some people say that these headphones are unlistenable without equalizer and I completely disagree. I disagree to the extent that it made me write this review- something I normally don't do
I'm no audio expert but I've found these headphones the clearest sounding among the ones I've so far tested.
The special thing about these headphones it the fact that they have just "enough" bass. The perfect base allows the music to come to life; the mids and highs are extremely well detailed and clear because the bass does not distort them. A good competitor to Shure 1440 would be Sennheiser 598 which I find much less detailed because of the overpowering bass.
Maybe I just hate bass. Who knows?!
