^ There are lots of other better cans out there, but for much more money.
For the price paid though, the Uptowns really are very nice. They have a nice natural and mostly flat EQ sound.
Very good for hearing sound exactly as it is coming from the source, assuming the source is nice and neutral.
I paid $50 (brand new on Ebay) for mine and it was well worth it. You'd have to pay $200-$250 or more to get better sound.
what examples of 200-250 more?
the ath-m50 or the UE6000 are one of those or the uptown is still better overall?
