Eek, you just said the forbidden words. I'd duck for cover if I were you.
Again, they get more then there fair share of coverage - maybe just the X1 that doesn't.
On ear, open back, gorgeous balanced sound
(Not sure if they're still in production since the new closed back line was released)
They retail(ed) for about 150. I saw them on Amazon for $88.00 and bit the bullet,
having never heard them. I liked them so much I bought another set for about $100,
saying to myself if they are going out of production, I want backup. These
are great headphones even at their original price range, and owning them led me to sell my Grado 225i's.
Not so much underrated as it is forgotten, really. They're really well-respected when they're mentioned, but people simply forget that they exist.
