Pros: Clean, neutral sounding, good bass.
Cons: Slightly dull, but not bad
I have good ears, but am not up on the lingo here, nor am I a phones snob.
I can only really compare these to what I have used for years, etymotic h5s, and my home speakers, Boston VS 260s (excellent speakers, I know what good sounds like.)
These are fine headphones for the price. Nothing stands out harshly or feels too muddy to me.
Another reviewer described these to be like listening through a balaclava. I can actually hear what he means a bit, there is a slightly muffled quality about them, maybe I would say, more in the midrange, but it is nothing I noticed til he said it and I listened closely.
I hear some good clarity on voices and high bits, that easily stands out above any of that muffled quality, and the bass is full and has a nice bit of punch. They have a warm sound.
They won't blow you away, but they aren't expensive. Fine value in my opinion.
