They just got here an hour ago. First impressions are extremely positive. They definitely need breaking in, but from what I can tell I'm listening to my new favorite headphones. As it stands, they're very DT880-like, which is a good thing. Super extended highs that aren't harsh at all, nice warm liquid midrange, with a bass that's neither lacking or over emphasized that's extremely tight. Soundstage is open headphone like and they have absolutely zero closed headphone reverb. I don't know how they got a closed headphone to sound like an open one but they did it. The build quality is unbelievably good and light at same time, which is no easy task. I will be posting a full review with my other SRH headphones in a day or two when they're fully broken in.
Just got mine and agree 100% with this. Sound extremely good, less bass impact than my 440's but that suits me. Definitely not bass light. They work awesome with metal. Comfort seems very good also.
Really? Then perhaps these are better then the Shure SRH840 for me.
