*** Impressions Update ***
So I had some ear time with these. I really like the sound. Unlike Beats Solo, these doesn't sound over EQ at all. The bass is punchy and the highs are smooth, not bright at all. I do want a bit more sparkle, but that's just me. Even with the Bass knob all the way up it did not distort. The Bass control is not overly crazy change in sound signature. It's just a good amount of sub bass boost. Playing Deamau5 it does a good job being fun. It can get too loud without any hint of distortion so be very careful with your hearing. The on ear factory is actually ok. It isolates outside noise good, but not as good as Beats Solo. Overall, these are much better than the Beats Solo, but not as good as the Sony XB-700.
