I got these headphones with the idea that they were going to be great all around headphones. These were supposed to be the upgrade to my bose headphones; my smelly, 1000s of hours of use, beat up pieces of junk. So now that I'm actually using these, what the hell is the hype all about? They aren't as comfortable and they're very snug fitting, the sound sounds a bit like it's being pumped into my ear, instead of having at least an equal soundstage to the bose, the bass sound floppy, they sound a tad dark. I don't understand, why are these 350 dollars? Maybe I just don't understand, because I don't have much experience with headphones. I just expected something spectacular.
