Marshall Major, HELP master!
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I have the original ones. Don't get them, really. The only thing they excel at is build quality (they are made like a tank). You should try to find the 50th anniversary edition; Tyll said they were way better sounding than the original model. Another good options for small on-ears are UE 4000, Sennheiser HD 229, and the Pioneer HDJ-500 (although these are not nearly as well made as the UE or the majors).
Their sound is pretty weird. It is not great with highs or lows as it has some weird dB drops in both frequency ranges. The mids are prominent and stable compared to the rest. It is not bad but you could do better for the price.
