I was looking for a good decent headphone that fits my needs for electronic music (melodic minimal to hard quick slamming techno) and that produces enough volume, just powered by my laptop.
I am 100% satisfied. Really, after having worked with a Stanton before, It's like I am totally rediscovering my music collection. The snares and sounds like rainfall come through very detailed and clear. Goa-like sounds that are being pulled and squeezed from left to right sound amazingly great. Besides all bass, mid and high tones sounds very balanced. Nothing sounds overdone or disappears somehow in the background. So summarizing, I am absolutely very very happy with the sound quality.
Also the volume it can produce when only being powered with my laptop is great. I used to put everything to max.. and still i was not entirely feeling inside the music with my Stanton. Right now I can put everything to 50/60 percent volume and it's definetly hard enough! Total satisfaction also with this point.
Thirdly I am very happy with the fit around my ears. I suppose I have a big head with big ears since I am almost 2 metres tall. And there is enough space for them. Also it doesn't get too warm (just a little tiny sweaty) The pressure is excellent.
Some of you speak about the design and say that it sucks. really I don't care.. Actually I quite like the "oldskool" sort of industrial look. I just want excellent, comfortable audio.. and I have it now
