Heres the review: I havent heard all the headphones compared but this was pretty crazy compared to what I have heard on the forums how do you feel about his point im interested because I am recieving my m80s soon
I ordered these in december of 2011. I received them 1 month later. I was extremely excited to hear these beauties. First thing i noticed was how stunning they looked. I plugged in the iphone cable and took my m50s off to try my new m80s.
I put them on for 20 seconds. I took them off thinking there must be something wrong. I reattached a different cable and listened again. There we go thats what they sound like. Boring, lifeless, bassless, no treble, and finally no sound stage. I did not get a fake as they sound like they should. I am just appalled at their sound. I paid $230 for these. The following headphones i own i will take over these.
Audio technica m50
and finally their leading competitor the hd25 1 ii. There is no comparison between the 2. The hd25 1 ii is 10 times better.
These headphones function much like apple products. They look pretty but perform terribly in their price range. The only pair of headphones i own i'd replace with these are my shure se215 iems. But they serve different purposes so that won't happen.
durability wise? These things can survive an atomic war, but so can my m50s, hd 25 1 ii, and my xb700.
Comfort? good luck getting a good fit or seal. Terrible ergonomics.
