cant leave a review so i will here, instead.
i was worried i may have made a wrong purchase until i got these this morning and spent the day with them on
for reference, these cans are for my on the go use with a 4GB ipod nano...these are replacing my old AKG GHS-1 gaming headset i was using.
decent build quality
yes, firm clamping force, my hd 6xx , pc 360 and ghs1 are etheral by comparison, yet i did not find any discomfort at all, the pleather(?) pading is nice too. i was freaked out by reading this so many times, but i dont have any problem, it must be all the rocks in my head
AWESOME sound, although admittedly im coming from a modest background for portable HP
bass boost was fun to mess with for about 30 seconds, collectively...although when some of that was a dance track, i could see this being appreciated by the demographic DJ (im not). bass boost will be engaged rarely, if ever
love the cord, due to the detachable nature, and its perfect length for me, and ive found i can drop the ipod and it wont hit the floor, and hang suspended on the coiled cable...
i am VERY pleased with these, would recommend to anyone
i havent even tried them on my schiit stack yet! :)
