Good all-rounder for the price with a rather heavy low-midrange, but lacking in brilliance

Rich in bass and low-midrange, with modest sub-bass and midrange and a drop in the presence or sibilance range (4-6 kHz). The high frequencies are inconsistent (far from being a flat response or a simple slope), yet I find the signature interesting: it's a bit like listening to a tape recorder using a vacuum tube amplifier. The warmth is there, the relative lack of treble too.

Should you add further bass via an EQ or a "bass boost" feature, the headphones would distort heavily in the 60-80 Hz range, but they perform just fine if you don't. Maybe it helps that the nominal power is 1000 mW, not 100 mW, although I guess this is measured at 1 kHz.

In contrast, adding treble when desired or needed doesn't hurt at all, and I'd personally add 6 dB at 8-10 kHz. This is not to make the response V-shaped! As it happens, I prefer the headphones to be as close to a flat response as possible, because I want to hear what a composer decided to create or a band chose to perform: if I alter the frequency response, it's like I want to listen to something else!

That's in theory. In practice, headphones at this price simply can't have a flat response, they're not "transparent" (it's not like you would be listening to a live performance without noticing you're wearing headphones), and most people prefer some more bass than a flat response.

Despite the bass emphasis, the human voice remains reasonably clear, which is important to me. The clarity is not optimal though, so if you're an interpreter who provides instant translation based on what you hear in the headphones, these might not be your best choice. For my needs (jazz, '60s-'70s pop, '80s disco, classical, old-school electronic music), it doesn't seem a bad choice at all.

At the same time, the frequency response is not all there is. As nobody listens to a pure sinusoidal signal, the rich actual spectrum will be rendered by any headphones with various inter-modulation, added harmonics, distortions and other artifacts. The purity of SE-MJ522 is far from perfection, so I assume such unwanted phenomena cannot be ignored, but again, the resulting "signature" is quite pleasant, and I learned to love it already.

I don't know whether a longer burn-in would change anything; this review was made after 7 days of listening.

Comfortable enough to wear, except that the headband is not padded.
