I've got one, and it's pretty decent for a closed set of closed headphones. Robust, too. And foldable. I use it for studying in the library, or when my neighbors are being too noisy (the isolation is very good, for my ears anyway).
I'd say it's actually not that bright. If anything it has a slight emphasis on bass, and the sound isn't as dry as I expected (I used the Senn PX100 before buying these). I've been using it unamped out of my laptop (foobar2k with FLAC, 24-bit sound card) and 5.5G iPod, and it's pretty decent. Quite fun especially considering that it's marketed as monitoring headphones.
Studio monitor headphones seem fit a different need than "audiophile: headphones.
It seems to me that most of the time headphones sold as "Studio Monitors" most importantly need to isolate the listener.
Which makes them ideal portable cans - Sony MDR-7506, Sennheiser HD-25-1 just to name two very popular options. They may not fit the bill for home listening, but a studio phone can be indispensible for folks like me who can't stand IEMs, buds or street-style form-factor and they can even sound pretty damn good. I'm definitely intrigued by this headphone, especially since they're collapsible.
thumpin' bumpin... damdeee dum dum hehehe
cmon... I guess i will get these blindly along with my ad2000s and give comparisons against it and my 595s for reference. Oh, I should compare them to my k81djs but if it is anywhere in that league of sound, they are going to be for sale fast hehehe
