I got to do an outside test today, which is just me using them at stores. yeah...I'm going to paint the earcups black. They draw too much attention. One guy just stopped walking down the isle and looked at them. Maybe people recognize the Tiesto logo? Or maybe it's the large amount of silver on the earcups.
These have friggin awesome isolation. Just standing in line at the store and I don't hear anyone talking or the intercom.
I thought the cable was going to be a problem, but it is actually the right length if it's connected to your player in your pocket. I take back what I said about not liking the cable earlier.
I've had them playing music nonstop since I got them. I think they are burned in now. The bass is very deep, and at the same time still very detailed. Is OK to confess my love to them? Yeah, now I can say I do really love these headphones. :)
(random headphone testing)
I went to the store and just happen to pass by the electronics section. Tested the K167 against some the Beats line up, Sony XB600, and Skullcandy Hesh, out of curiosity. The Executive Beats weren't working, so there was the Solo, Mixr, and Studio. It was no contest against the Solo and Mixr Beats, they sounded really cheap. The Beats Studio has decent bass, but it's not as clear. It didn't have the forward sound or fullness of the K167.
The Sony XB600 was just horrible and muddy. No detail at all haha.
The Skullcandy Hesh is actually not a bad headphone for $60, but very a V shaped sound. The Hesh was like the DT770 but less bass and slightly less detailed. I would choose the Hesh over the Beats Mixr and Solo.
Back home I realize that these headphones have a gap right above the earcups to fit your glasses if your frame is thin. Don't push them too far back and it's comfortable. Yet another win with these headphones.
