Just received mine yesterday. At first listen I was extremely disappointed, and I thought they were one of the worst pairs of headphones I have ever heard. I have a pair of HP from TJ maxx that were $8 I leave at my office that sound much better. I thought maybe it's just me or I got a bad pair (they sounded like the polarities on the drivers were reversed). I put them back on and all of a sudden the clouds parted and a magnificent beam of sound shined through.
Apparently, these act in a way VERY similar to IEMs. If you don't have a good seal on your ear and don't have them positioned correctly you will not be happy. Once i found the sweet spot they sounded incredible. Once I tried them at home with my amps, they sounded even better. I wanted a small set of cans for DJing / portable listening / listening at work. Excellent isolation once a good ear seal is made. Kick drums cut right through the mix in these (although at a slightly higher freq. This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks Massdrop.
