Thanks for very nice review. Yes it is hard review this headphone. Because it has many flaws but on the other hand thier sound is very exciting, I like Grado-Alessandro open airy sound. Did you try even MS1000 mod with wood distancers and GS pads? I find this mod best with them (bigger soundstage, everything a little more from head) and sound was very fun listen even from iPhone and also very comfy so at the end for the price very cool headphone for all family :D..
