Arrived. Carbon lim ed. Underwhelmed by the SQ. Much worse than my Audio Technica M 50s. Which are less than half the price.

That was put bluntly!
Well that's a shame, was looking forward to getting a pair but in the end might hold off.

I saw the FR chart. I'm curious to know if it's compensated or not... I'd rather see a raw chart.
If that chart is not compensated for (raw), prepare for some bassy sound. If it is, We'd need to know the actual compensation used.

To be honest being a start up focussing on appearance ahead of sound seems reasonable enough, simply because of the amount of ignorance in the mainstream on good sounding cans.
Neither can you rule out the fact that finding the right drivers is not easy, as most audio companies develop their own drivers.

Of course... I can imagine that solving the engineering problems with cups, headband etc. is much easier than developing a driver. And they deserve respect for a really good looking design using very nice materials. Plus I like things manufactured in Europe...
Chances are good I'll pass on these though -- would be *very* surprised if they sounded better than the DT1350 I'm still using on the go.
