I actually like these things a lot. Hours of listening and no fatigue on my ear cartilage like I thought there would be. I feel like I can hear things more clearly at low volumes than my AKG K240 does at low volumes. It's just a juicier sound. Not a 100% improvement over the K240 but I feel like I'm hearing a clear difference. The AKG K240 is definitely bassier.
I am curious about the Alessandro I keep seeing people mention. Maybe I should try that instead of the sr80i? I don't know. I feel like if I return these to save up for those maybe I would be better off getting something like the sennheiser momentum.
