I have waited one year of use to do this review.
They were in perfect shape when bought and I got spoiled by the price, $80.00.
The cable length is long but not too long like some Sony headphones I had and the connector 1/8" (with adapter)
is one of the nicest quality build I have seen.
Comfort wise perfect when you find the common balance sweetspot on the auto adjusting headphone design.
Very clever, but I have a feeling someone with a smaller than average head having shifting issues.
My head is a bit bigger than average for my size and they fit perfectly .
The shifting which has happened to me when moving around will alter the soundstage but easy to rectify. The cushy
pads are a beautiful experience to wear a velveteen type material, which is replaceable.
They are AIR design headphones so the listening experience can be heard outside the headphones..but it's not as bad
as I thought it has been described in other forums with open air style phones.
Cosmetically I think they look sharp, and are not flashy . I am not buying headphones for the visual style but
they happen to be low key in a way I like while leaving a positive impression with people.
They are lighter than they look, especially with that outer metal grille.
Sound wise they are exactly what I was looking for with a headphone. I'm using these almost exclusively to do rough and final
mixes , and sound restoration with these headphones , which I also do have monitor speakers ect.
What I have found I can mix in the headphones with exacting results for the speakers when playing back.
I do use 24bit audio alot, from analogue sources so the specs of these headphones shine
when using highest quality audio material with extended frequencies at both ends of the spectrum.
The Bass remains defined, non distorted and not dominant (unless mixed that way) Midrange is golden and highs are excellent.
I recommend these headphones to anyone who cares about hearing music the way the artist intended one hearing it.
