I thought these were supposed to sound good. They do not. Maybe I got a fake pair. They just sound like the cheapie walkman headphones to me, except a little better. These have NO detail whatsoever. Songs that I'm very familiar with - when listened to on the Portapros - there are sounds I can't even hear that I know are there. There is no richness to the sound. Bass is ok, I was expecting very heavy bass from what I heard but the bass on these is weak compared to my cheap Auvios. They're only redeeming feature is they're very comfortable, but the sound is not what I expected at all.
I am pretty dissapointed. They'll be fine to use as exercising headphones, but for any kind of serious listening these don't even come close.
I must either be crazy, or I got a fake pair. I can't believe that so many people think these sound so good, yet they sound so crappy to me. :(
