I got to try out the Hesh 2 today, and I have to say, out of the box the Crossfade LPs will sound better than the Hesh 2 :)

Most differences between headphones aren't night and day (unless, you know, you compare Beats Studios and an HD 800 side by side) but for these, I could instantly tell which was "better." Now I didn't have the Crossfades or my M-100 with me, so I was going off of memory. A non-sq note, that headphone (Hesh 2) is proof that only Grado headphones can go without padding >_< they were hurting my head after three minutes.

Alright, so I'm only a few minutes into these bad boys. I can tell you guys now, I am gonna love these so much.

So, the bass is definitely the star of the show. The treble sounds a bit low, or recessed. But I can tell that in a few days to weeks, these bad boys will continuously gain power on different levels of the music. Once you listen to your first dubstep song, you can definitely feel dat bass. Not much more on the sound, can't think of anything ATM.

Comfort. Oh my god, these babes are extremely comfortable. There is a bit of clamping force on the ears, but I don't see why people would find that bad, necessarily. The headband is really great, no discomfort so far. So overall, the comfort is great.

Durability. I do not know much about the durability on these, but they feel really strong, and they're right about that they're built like a tank.

The Shining Look. The style of these headphones are great. The shields really shine out. The kevlar cord makes it really awesome. The carrying case is like an exoskeleton, it is also really nice.

Overall, I give these a 9/10.

I've listened to quite a few songs now...

RealTalk - True Gangsters

Wolfgang Gartner - Shrunken Heads (Butch Clancy Rework)

PANTyRAiD - Jail bait

Awolnation - Sail (DJ Slink Remix)

These songs sound VERY, VERY pleasing on the Crossfade LPs...

Hmm, kind of dissapointed in these 'cans... :C

So I've spent about a total of 10 hours listening to these, but they still haven't shined out their treble and mids. Should I wait a little longer? :/
