Fantastic sound but weak cable design
Christopher Lemos, 16.11.2018
I've had 3 pairs of these headphones, which is a testament to how good these sound and how badly their cable is designed.

For the price offered I don't believe you can get a better headphones experience, the sound quality is great, with a warm bass and ever so slightly recessed mids and highs. I've only sensed this sort of clarity and balance in headphones 80 euros and up, which at almost triple the price of these just goes to show how good of a deal these are. The sound stage is also very good, the open design allows for a really pleasant listening experience. They are also immensely comfortable, the adjustable headband works like a charm, the construction is pleasant and the velour pads are a fantastic addition to a 30 euro pair headphones
(They come with two pairs of pads, the faux leather ones that already come with the headphones aren't very good) I've mixed on these headphones for over 5 hours in a row with only mild discomfort.

So the reason why I don't rate these a perfect 5 is due to the cable design, the male jack on the headphones is just too flimsy and short and always ends up ripping with extensive use making the detachable cable useless. Either make it longer or sturdier, it's the only thing holding these headphones back.

Overall fantastic headphones with one exceptionally bad flaw.

Best bang for your buck headphone!
hibber, 15.08.2018
I bought this headphone for my homestudio. I record music as a hobby so I wanted a decent headphone without spending the jackpot all at once. My previous headphone was also a Superlux (can't recall what series though) so this seemed to be the right one for the job.

The first thing I did was open a heavy mix in logic an take a listen. What I noticed is that the sound of the headphone is very crisp and clear. Very well balanced sound overall. I played with the bass, mids and highs in the mix and I feld very happy with my purchase right away!

The headphone is very comfortable to wear, the cushions make sure that you don't hear to much noise from 'outside', and after wearing them for a couple of hours they still remain comfortable.

So: the sound is very good, what about the construction quality?

It's mostly made of hardplastics and thats fine, it doesn't feel fragile but it also doesn't feel like it won't ever die on you. The main reason why I gave the quality only 3 stars is because the rubber around the jack cable is already torn on some places...

verdict: It's absolutely a no-brainer to buy this headphone. If you're like me and don't do music professionally you only care about a good sound and a comfortable headphone, and thats exactly what you get!
