The built quality of this is impressive for the price compared to other headphones in the same price range. They have very well machined metal parts that have a nice feel to them. I'm not a huge fan of the car wheel design but I think it has a pleasing design overall.
The worst thing about them is that they are in no way a "over-ear" but are actually a "on-ear" design. Most people that I lent them to still found them very comfortable for "on-ear" headphones. Since I have very big ears, they would hurt me a lot when I used them over a long period of time. It hurts a bit less now since I got "used to it". If you have big hears, you might find it hard to use them, but otherwise it doesn't seems to be an issue for most of the people.
I'm not very confident on how accurate I can explain the sound so I'll just say the obvious: they are bass heavy, but not too heavy so that it's unpleasant. They are right on the line where it's a very good "humph" without ruining it. I would highly suggest anyone interested about the sound to look at Tyll's review on InnerFidelity for a really good review of the sound.
I think some companies don't know the difference between over-ear and on-ear. I've ran into a few of these concerns lately. Thank you for pointing this out because now I will not get them., no matter how good they sound.
I bough these previously from a vendor and they start hurting slightly in 30 minutes and then if I keep shifting and readjusting I could go for about two hours with them and my ears are average.
I wish they made a bigger version that doesn't sit on your ears, otherwise the sound is great, even if a little too v-shaped for my liking (mids get a little burried).
