Much sharper than my k119 and 142hd. The soundstage is not as wide as I was expecting but still they sound opened. The trebles are extremely sharp, bordering on being too sharp, but they certainly sound crisp. The bass while not exactly boomy or deep does pack some decent punch. The cable is thick and feels high quality, however the ear pads feel low end. They sound best for movies or live music and when cranked up they can get very loud. They sound completely different depending on the source too.
