Has anyone else tried these? I picked up a pair for the bargain basement price of $40 - apparently they've been discontinued. In spite of all the "gimmicks" - volume knob, LCD equalizer, mute button - they sound quite good to me. Better than my HD280's or the HD558's I auditioned a while back. Supposedly these are bass-heavy, but the treble sounds stronger than the HD280 and much more prevalent than the HD558s. Only fly in the ointment is that they're rather hard to drive. I have to crank the volume all the way up on my iPhone 5S to get a decent sound level. Turning on the equalizer (amp?) boosts the sound noticeably, but supposedly the batteries drain rather quickly.
