Finally got an hour or so to try them out but I'm just running them through my computer headphone amp (that came with my 5 year old Logitech desktop speakers) I'm still awaiting my hifimediy so I'm not really willing to give a good review yet.
I tried listening to Judas Priest and it was pretty god awful through my computer but electro is pretty good since the bass seems to be pretty nice, in fact it beats the bass impact of my old pair of dt 770's while it was amped. I'm pretty convinced these will sound way better once my Dac arrives (I hope).
As I'm writing this my ears are starting to bother me, I had a paragraph written about how comfortable these are but sadly they are not.
I hate the feel of the memory foam, just feels too hard. I have really sensitive ears, even my pillow hurts my ears sometimes so I don't know if I'm even the right person to be critiquing the whole comfort thing. I just adjusted the headphones slightly and I'll see if that makes a difference.
I have a pair of hm5 pads on their way, hopefully they solve the whole comfort issue and the dac solves the whole crap quality issue. Otherwise I'm afraid that these were quite overhyped as I'm much more satisfied with the sound quality of my mh 1's.
I don't believe in burn in, So trying to convince me that leaving them sitting there on full blast is going to make them sound dramatically different. Tried it before and noticed absolutely no difference, Not doing it again.
Edit: They feel comfy now, but I took a t3 a while ago and that may be the reason. Lol, flipping wisdom tooth.
Double edit: I am finding it really depends on the audio quality on the songs you're listening to, I was giving my opinion based on listening to a single album. But now I can after listening to more songs in HD that these sound great.They are so Loud, 60% is plenty loud through my computer. Comfortable for an hour or so before I have to adjust them again. These really do sound extremely sexy for 50 dollars. This is without a Dac still, I'm super excited to give another review once it arrives.
