Pros: Massive bass that will give you an awesome ear massage! *Physical Eargasm*

Cons: Lacks in general sound performance, recessed treble & fatigue.

Well... the reason you've been stumbled across these badboys is probably because you are a basshead, and these do delivery, they really do. Now, I wont go over the spectrum since these aren´t a pair of audiophile headphones and they were never meant to be. These cans job is to go down and dirty and deliver massive bass. It does not matter how much EQ bass you throw at these naughty cans, they´ll just keep pumping until you get a headache! They do delivery a pretty punchy bass going flat but the general sound quality isn't that great. The most noticeable is the recessed treble which strangely hurts my ears abit. I might just be sensitive, but that could be something you should keep in mind. But I still feel that the bass has enough grip to separate itself from the mids. 


The build quality is really great and the earpads, oh my god, the earpads, I've actually fallen to sleep wearing these things, that should say alot! It takes use of my favourite type of cable, Its one those flat tangle-free cables or whatever you like to call em. The cable is on the short side.


Easy to drive but they could generally get a boost in performance with a good amp. But I feel like these were designed for portable use due to the short cable, but it still doesn't really make sense since they are pretty huge and not really something you would wear in public. :/


Package comes with a very nice carrying bag and a 6.3mm adapter.


Conclusion: Now, these are discontinued, so if you find these around and you are a basshead, grab them! As I've said, these do a great job at what its suppose to do, genres like electronic and dubstep works very good with these cans, but you should also keep in mind that genres like classical music will sound absolutely dreadful.
