Great set...no regrets~9/13/2012
Great headphones...a bit pricey as I am used to $50 headphones, but I thought I'd step it up a bit and treat myself nice...great sound, but I think I'm going to buy that little Fiio amp for a little something extra.
Every sound is discernible in the music, with rich highs and mids, and bellowing lows. The isolation is quite good, and when played at a reasonable volume, your music cannot be heard by others. For comfort, these are hard to beat. I've left them in for hours of easy listening.
These headphones are beyond awesome if you ask me. One; They have above average bass. And good for people who enjoy bass in their music. ( Electronic/Dubstep/Rap ) Two; Block out a lot of sound.
I own 2 pairs5/9/2012
I bought another set for work because they work so well. They dampen outside sounds well enough when there is no music on. The sound is clear and crisp. No distortion. They make for a wonderful music experience. Extremely comfortable. I wear them for about 2 to 4 hours at a time. Great fit.
I hear no hissing and the sound quality is very good. The base/stand/charger works well and makes things easy and convenient. I like that the padding around the sides and top of the head help ease the pressure on the ear pads. I think this is why I could wear them much longer than previous pairs of head phones.
I bough this headphones to use it in my pc to listen to music, play games, watch movies. I received great reviews and motivation to buy then so i went ahead and did so. They are comfortable, output excellent quality of sound and i have never seen another headphones that perform better than this for the price.
Great value entry level mid-fi6/3/2011
Read a ton of reviews before I made my purchase, and nearly all of them were positive. I'd have to agree (although from what I've read it's supposed to get even better after break in). Head and shoulders above $40-$60 sets of Sony/Creative/Logitechs in ears that I've been using. My last set of Logitech Ultimate SuperFi4's broke within a year or so of moderate use, and these are clearly in a different league. Comfortable, great at noise blocking, and a full sound with good imaging.
