Worth it
07.01.2016
There are quite a few good qualities in these headphones with only minor drawbacks.

I tend to listen to high-definition music, 320 kbps and the likes.
What initially struck me when listening to music through these headphones is the quality. After owning cheap 15euro headphones for so long, I immediately noticed a huge increase in clarity, especially in the low-frequency spectrum.
These speakers have higher impedance than some and this causes them to be slightly less-loud, but they are still perfectly capable of drowning out any background noise, such as a TV or radio playing.
These headphones are also semi-open, meaning their sound-insulation isnt very high. This can be seen as good or bad, as you may not want others hearing your music, but it also means I can speak to others while the speakers are still on my ears

For comfort, I didnt give a fifth star for some minor reasons.
First, the removable audio jack extrudes quite a long way out of the bottom of the speaker, and sometimes snags on the collar of my coat. I dont mind this too much as having a removable jack at all is great for me, but still this is worth noting.
Secondly, the material used to form the speaker pads, while soft and easy on the skin, is leathery, meaning that if i wear the phones for a long duration, they will leave sweat-marks on the skin.

The rest of the build quality is very satisfactory, with self-adjusting headband and a good flexible, agile feel to the product as a whole- these will probably last a long time. These headphones are also very light, meaning they dont leave that annoying headphone-hair indent on my head when using them for hours.

So to sum up, Very good quality sound, Very comfortable (usually), durable.

Handle with care!
Akibaidisto, 13.12.2018
Sound quality is perfect! No coloration whatsoever. Very comfortable, been using them for 2, 3h straight, with no fatigue to the ears or head, but beware that the fit is auto, you cannot adjust it as you please.
I do have concernes about the quality of the materials. I'm quite afraid I will break them if I'm not extremely careful taking them off.
I'm glad with the purchase, but wouldn't buy them again due to the fragile touch and feeling. Sound is great though, very clear.

I use this pair of headphones as an all purpose kind of phones, the sound is clear and balanced, and honestly I like it very much, I've been using them for a year and the built quality is good i'm not a very careful guy with my equipment and they have resisted very well.
They are semi open headphones and if you like to listen music with a little bit of volume, the person next to you will be listening too because they bleed a lot.
I don't know why but the earpads, and the headband get very hot on our head after a 30m of use and on warm days they will make you sweat.
The Sound is good the built quality too but they are not very comfortable because of how hot they get in your head.

Use them all the time

Very nice for vocalists and other people who rely on intonation. Because of the design you hear quite a bit of "you" while the spill is not too bad.

Great value headphones
Cdbigman, 14.04.2019
I needed headphones for home use as my current ones were damaged.
I decided on these ones as other reviews were good. So far I am really pleased with them. They have a decent flat sound for monitoring/recording. Good long cable and very well built.
My only issue is that they don’t sit as comfortable on my head as other brands of headphones. They are lacking in adjustable features but for me it’s not a deal breaker.
this wouldn’t stop me for recommending them to you to use.
I hope this was helpful to someone.

Good but not really what I expected
Hoodoo, 12.07.2017
I bought these headphones recently for plugging them into my audio interface and using on making psychedelic music.

What you need to know:

Long cable. You may not like it, but I love it, gives option to move around the room without needing to take them off and on all the time.

It originally comes not with the studio type jack (like guitar cables have) but with the small regular headphone jack. Fortunately, there is a qualitative adapter included. Not sure how it affects the quality though.

The quality itself is not really what I expected. I used iPhone 6 earbuds all the time, and benchmarking from them the lower frequencies are pretty weak. Too weak I'd say. Can't enjoy those groovy basslines as much I'd like to. The headphones themselves aren't too loud either, but aren't really quiet as well.

Also, remember, that they only isolate your ears partially, which maybe puts a toll on the sound quality a bit.

In general I don't feel quite content with them. I'd say you need to test them out and compare with others before buying.

Good headphones for home studio
Iv011, 10.07.2018
I bought them for mixing and using in home studio. They are semi open so I can hear door ring, phone or some other important sounds while I am listening music or working in DAW. Sound quality is good and neutral.

Pros: Inexpensive good sounding headphones.
Cons: These doesn't have spiral cable.

Very good headphones
Pianohustler, 21.12.2018
I use these for playback of my digital piano when exercising. Good sounding headphones that are comfortable to wear. The piano sounds more realistic through the headphones than through the built-in speakers. No audiophile quality but very good for my purpose at the price being asked.

Nice for bass players
29.04.2015
I looked around and settled on these. Couldn't be happier. I use these to play along with MP3's and my bass while practicing, I was using in ear monitors at home, but these sound 100x better. Comfortable, except in 30+ degrees, but still OK. Can't hear much outside noise (wife!) while practicing another bonus.

Rudolphs, 25.04.2018
These are first studio like headphones i have ever bought for my amp when im playing guitar. Anyway, the sound is nice and clear trough my amp, also the fit on the head is really good and they feel really comfortable, also they self adjust which is convenient. For the price of these headphones we are getting quite a lot. Only thing that feels kind a cheap is the they have alot of plastic like material, but that is not a deal breaker. Overall i recommend these.

Great headphones
Peter1696, 06.06.2014
I mainly use these for mixing, but I actually think that they are better for listening to music. They sound great, but they also add bass and compress the sound. Once you're used to the way the color the sound, it isn't a problem.
