My go-to closed headphones
What I like:
  • comfort & lightness: the pads are cushion-y and have no problem wearing it for many hours (I wear eye glasses too!)
  • sound quality & tuning: fairly neutral with appropriate amount of exciting low-end. Pretty good details too
  • build quality
What I slightly dislike:
  • looks a bit pretentious
  • cord is just okay. Kinda bouncy

As good as closed goes under $500 I guess?
I give it 3 stars as that is all I expect from closed headphones. These are the best closed I've seen so far, the pads are soft and comfy but they deform... it's annoying. Soundwise, what I hear is same as reviews on AudioScience forum. And I do use Qudelix 5K on the laptop with them or Peace/EqualizerAPO on desktop, sounds good. I only use when I need closed though, any decent open air headphone is still better. Build quality is meh at best. I think a more simple and sturdy headband would be a big improvement.

Very bright
These are a really good set of cans however they are extremely bright. Amazing isolation, comfort and build quality and overall good sound but it can get painful with some songs.

A smooth, almost retro listen
I was surprised with how smooth these headphones sounded. I was expecting something bolder, maybe with a lot more bass. These headphones have a lot of kick in them, but the bass is nicely integrated with the rest of the sound signature. I find them really great for listening to "moldy fig" jazz, like the tracks recorded by people like Louis and Ella, Oscar Peterson and Ben Webster on Verve back in the 1950s. These tunes sounded great coming from the old cabinet record players that sat in the corner of living rooms back in the day . They sound great coming these headphones as well.

Wider soundstage than you'd think for closed back
Pretty wide soundstage for being closed. These are pretty detail oriented and deliver what you'd expect from DC Audio. Great comfort for long sessions. Pads are deep and comfy. Totally worth it.

Like a new pair of ears
I'm three hours in from unboxing and they haven't left my head. The detail and the bass are just insane, and they're comfortable enough to keep on. No fatigue, no pressure. On metal, it sings with holding distortion together. On Nils Frahm's Ambre, it's like having the piano inches from your face. Every key hammer is audible (that's a good thing!). On Porcupine Tree, the soundstage opens up to a cinematic vista where the headphones fade away entirely. On vaporwave, the minute sound design details appear in more detail than a painting. I've heard these songs on an HD700 and a T50RP, but I've never heard them like this. My only, mostly facetious, complaint is it really reveals when you have a bad mix, file, or amp. Long term, my Grace DAC and JDS O2 are getting absolutely outclassed here. But I'd rather have that times a hundred than sacrifice any of the quality these are pumping out so far. And that's without EQ or break in! Looking forward to many more hours and eventually a longer review.

the comfiest headphone ever
it's fast and snappy, sounds amazing, detailed but not cramped, premium build, and this is the only headphone i can use for hours because it's very comfortable and the design is in such a way that there's no pressure points that might hurt after prolonged use.

Light and comfortable; neutral sound; just enough bass
These are comfortable headphones, very light, earcups are pretty deep with just enough clamping force to stay on my big head without giving me a headache. Really nice, fairly neutral sound (not flat or boring) with present, soft bass, great extension, vocals really come through beautifully. I like them more than my Beyerdynamics (DT 770 Pro 80 ohm), which I think are really good too, but for different reasons.

Thin. Not as nice as the Open
These were fine. The midrange is too thin. It significantly alters guitar tone, which as a guitarist is really important to me. I bought both the Open and the Closed and kept the Open which were far better, especially in the mid range.
