    "Great quality materials and surprisingly good sound"
    Pros - Surprisingly airy, can be driven by portable devices without dedicated amp
    Cons - Noise reduction gives out a low-frequency ambient sound
    Great packaging, great build quality. On pair with or even exceeds hifi-phones in the same price range. Makes Bose QuietComfort 15 look lite cheap toy phones in comparison.
     
    The sound is good, I have compared them against my MDR-MA900 and they are not far from them. The Destiny has more base but a little less refined than the 900, I think alot is because the Destiny's is more closed. The MA900 has better separation and vocals is generally better separated. I have used a Apogee Duet 2 when comparing. If I would compare the head phones using only a iPhone it's a completely different story, the Destiny's is driven easily. The sound leakage is low, I read in the other review here that he complained on leakage.... Im guessing he must listen REALY loud. Now to the bad part sound wise... The noise reduction gives away a low-frequency ambient sound, like a small conditioning unit. When the headphones are used in a noisy environment the reduction work pretty well and the ambient sound isn't a issue. But when used in a quiet environment it's somewhat annoying. And no, you can't use the phones with the noise reduction turned off...
     
    Build quality wise the Destiny is in a different league from the MA900. All metal and leather, detachable cables with a premium feel, best packaging I have come across for a pair of head phones.
     
    Update #1:
    AmberOzL: I totally agree that it's a big miss. Worst scenario is that you run out of batteries on a long train ride or etc and forgoten to bring new ones. Then you won't be able to listen at all.

    "Great purchase"
    Pros - Comfiest headphones I've ever tried, much better than any headphones in this price range, clear sound with highs', mids' and lows.
    Cons - Leak a good amount of sound, not the best noise cancellation out there
    Well I bought these a few months ago. They come in probably the nicest box i've ever had headphones come in. They come with two cords, batteries, an airplane adapter, and a tip for amps and stuff. They sound great, they look pretty good, they're a little bulky but they're very good for the price. I'd take these over a pair of beats pros without heistation. They are a pair of open backed headphones. This lets in ambient sound, however lets them leak a considerable amount of sound. The noise cancellation definitely isn't as good as Bose Qc15's. But it's alright. Overall these are really worth the money.
