What's in the box?
It is a reasonably priced headphone with good isolation. The trade-off is that the sound could be more accurate and the headphone is not the most comfortable because pressing force needed for the isolation is rather big. It is good for recording purposes.
Extremely balanced sound. Beautiful dynamic nuance between the low and mid range and the highs simmer right on top. Great for mastering, mixing, and producing!
These are really good and true sounding studio headphones. I would not recommend them for live sets in extremely loud conditions. They are not made for that. But they are really good when using them at home or in the studio.
In general: very very flat and critical. Its slightly boosted mid frequency response makes it incredibly more flat and critical standard than anything that I have seen (or heard) before. Perfect to have an accurate sense of what is going on in the EQ.
Excellent notion and clarity of basses (all of them). A little exceeded on the high-end for my personal taste; it has taken me time to get used to the big amount of highs.
Best choice for a hundred bucks budget. Definitely recommended.
