Pros: Very nice with instrumental music (violin, guitar), modern jazz, classical, psych/stoner rock. Epic soundstage in fps games (quake live, cs: go)
Cons: Could be better with some other than instrumental progressive metal music. You can hear distortion on high volumes (80<) in windows 7
Wow, i am soundwhoring in fps games now, i feel more aware of suroundings, and enemies steps distance, you can easily say the difference between some slightly cheaper and very cheap headphones!!! Had senn's HD429 + 558 + 598 open backs, and akg 550 closed backs before, oh man, sony are better in soundstage among them all, not sure by what margin, i'm not audiophile, but since i've started checking more expensive headphones like sens 5xx series, akg, i can tell the difference.
They are very light and comfortable, the other most comfortable headhpones i ever had (using right now) motorizer headphones. I love thin cable, makes me want to take them out with my smartphone sometimes, cable is very handy. They look fragile in photos and once you open the box, and when you take them in hand, you easily feel - they are sturdy, firm, flexible headband of metal, cloth material and rubber tubes inside shouts - quality. Seriously, when you put them on your head and turn the player on, you don't even care if they look fragile. Thin, firm, metal headband is another reason to fall in love with them.
I'm not good talking about lows mids and highs at all. All i can say these cans are lovely with music for me, just because they don't have overpowering bass, it's there, it's tight, not tiring, i love it. Instrumental music, modern jazz, classical, psychedelic/stoner rock (hidden orchestra, kingston wall, animals as leaders), they'll do fine with these genres. Female voice sounds great with these. Wish they were somewhat better with crushing heavy more agressive metal other than instrumental progressive metal. I am not very good at reviewing headphones.
