"The Amperiors are the best sounding supra-aural sealed cans I've heard to date, handily besting the DT1350, V-Moda M-80, and, of course, the HD 25-1 II. I love these headphones."
Straight from Tyll's review. I appreciate numbers, graphs, and measurements, but that is a bottom line statement from a guy who has heard them all. Notice the use of the word "handily." That's high praise considering where those cans placed in "ljokerl's" excellent comparison review/ranking.
I like the added style and zip from that blue aluminum, not to speak of what it actually does for the sound. Agree with everyone about the price. Wait for Black Friday sale on Amazon or elsewhere, pick 'em up, return if not liked. But Tyll is actualling saying these are the BEST closed on ear HPs he has ever heard. WOW!
