Thanks for the input, I'm a beginner and I haven't owned many pairs of headphones before, just few weeks ago I was really close to buying the Razer Tiamat 7.1 but I'm glad I didn't, I'm currently using the Razer Electra, they're probably a lot worse than brands like Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic, but I'm not complaining as the quality is decent for $55, but again I'm no pro, after using these overly advertised brands with only average quality, now I want to get my first good pair of a quality brand for watching movies and listening to music, I already bought the Sennheiser PC350 SE for gaming, seems like these Custom One Pro are my perfect fit!
My Pleasure!! I too am a beginner really, I just happened to get really really lucky and have a very very knowledgeable and even more gentlemanly (like the nicest guy ever) take me by the hand and steer me in all the right directions, and there are a lot of them.
One thing I have learned though, is that although this is a very rich pool of knowledge, and general consensus seems to be reached accurately, it is a great idea to try and define what you WANT you headphones to do, or how you LIKE your music presented. When you establish that, then you can start really using Head Fi to nail down what you NEED to fulfill your desires.
Hence, having a set like these, in my opinion is a GREAT kick off point for quality headphones, as it could be argued that you get four headphones in one with these, OK the argument isn't quite as simple as that, but still you will be able to play with the dynamics of the headphones without playing with EQ or anything else. Please let us all know if you buy them and then what you think. I found it really hard to start reviewing and my initial attempts are clumsy, but the more I do it, the better I get.
Sometimes all of this "scooped out mids" etc etc etc etc blah blah woof woof, can really be quite confounding, sometimes it is cool to simplify, does it sound good to you? If it does then they are good phones whatever anyone else might say or experience.
