Finally got mine. Unfortunately had to pay duty.
Anyways, using it with my Fiio X5 with the E12diy amp. I don't consider myself an audiophile but do appreciate good quality music.
My current headphones are VModa XS for portable use and K550 for home.
Been listening to many different tracks from Diana Krall, Armin van Buuren, Sarah Brightman, Miles Davis.
As for my quick review, out of the box, the audio sounds excellent. Imaging is impressive. Soundstage is big, not stadium big but more like Massey Hall big. Treble sounds a bit rolled off, which might be nice for some people. I'm a treble head myself so would have liked a bit more. Mid range is excellent. Vocals comes out clear. Bass has good weight. Doesn't go as deep as my XS but sounds tight and fast.
Comfort is amazing. Been wearing these for 3 hours with my glasses and haven't broken a sweat. Having said that, there doesn't seem to be any significant clamping force so don't rock out too much or they'll fall off. They're not that loose though, so walking around you're fine.
The plastic does make it feel a bit cheap but they do feel sturdy. Not Senn HD 25-1 ii sturdy but they should last a long time.
And most importantly, no rattle.
At almost $300 Cdn (after exchange/duty/taxes) don't know if these are the best at that price range. They're definitely good and I'm definitely enjoying them and right now they have replaced my K550 for home use.
