I don't claim to know a bunch of fancy terms but I'll try to describe it the best I can. The only reference I have is the HD280 and the DT880 250ohm. The bass is better than the HD280s. It has more punch, whereas I found the 280s to be a bit muddy. The mids are much better than the DT880s, but I can't quite recall the 280s being anything special in that department. Man, now that I think about it, the 280s don't seem special in any department. Haha. The highs are not bad at all, not quite as crisp as the DT880s but I can hear tons of depth in every song I listen to. Echoes, artists breathing, that sort of thing. They definitely sound fun, versus analytical. Keep in mind I've been listening to them for less than an hour. I imagine the drivers need to warm and loosen up. It's quite chilly here today as well. Also the cord nowhere near as long as the Beyers but I think that's the point. And I don't look like I'm landing a plane with them on!
Oh, and the other cord that it comes with, without the controls, doesn't have the swivel plug on it. But the pause/play/skip function of the center button does work with my Galaxy S III, just not the volume.
