I bought these on Amazon, (UK I think) they were around £110 (ish) They look the way they do as they were given away with a car, (Maseratti I think, via Zeos) hence the wheel design on the outside. They're well designed, feel solid, come in a big box with a nice carry case. They fold up, etc. The cable is chord covered, but a bit thin, and they plug into 2.5" jacks which slot into the cups, closed back. They're actually very comfortable cups. (On ear, nor over.) But the thing I don't like is the head band, which gets uncomfortable for me after about an hour. YMMV on that. From what I know of them at the time they had a big budget, so they went to town, did a lot of research for them, made something special. Tyll at InnerFidelity (and Zeos) raved about them. Which is why I bought them. As a result they have fantastic deep bass and excellent treble, they were described as excellent PC headphones. Which is what I was using them for. Though they do require power to shine. Then I changed my portable setup and found a better DAC, so I put the Dragonfly black into my PC, then I put my HifiMan HE4xx into that and used them as my PC cans. Because I had them hanging around and they're much more comfortable to me. Zeos is right, you do have to hear these, and they're cheap.
