Pros: very light headphones; good bass
Cons: pads not deep enough, lack of treble. no "sparkle" in highs. bass is slightly muddy
in a nutshell, i find my head bobbing with these headphones on. now onto the specifics.
these headphones look great. they look so much better that other headphones i have seen. if you do not like it to stand out, then these are not for you.
if you do not have ears that stick out more than normal, like i do, then these headphones are extremely comfortable. as my ears touch the inside of the ear cups, they become uncomfortable after about an hour, i am seeking a solution
the bass is good and forward, the mids are where they need to be. the real problem is that there is a lack of highs. it will produce high frequency sound, but it lacks the "sparkle" that i found in my new cans, the ath-m50s/le
these things are built well, the flaw that was previously in the building process has been fixed, and i think these cans will last me quite well. the cables are removable. the only design flaw. the cable that passes the signal to the right ear may wear out, as it is bent a bit by the frame. if it does, i am happy to have a warranty.
