Outstanding performance, quite stunning sound overall.
OK, where to start, oh yes, my wife loves the box, fantastic for a jewellery store! I opened them expecting quite a heavyweight outfit, but was amazed at how light they are, my one criticism is the earpads don't have a large enough space in them for my big old "jug ears", but I'll buy some Brainwavz to go on. My musical tastes run from Abba to Zappa, and all points in between, I am especially a fan of 70's and 80's rock and soul, but do have a lot from Frank Sinatra to Adele. They seem particularly good on transients, so stuff like Scritti Pollitti or Luther Vandross are sharp and succinct. I'll write a six month review as and when, but for now, GREAT CANS!

Ok, had these now for 3 months, first impressions were good, after 5 or 6 weeks, the sound had definitely mellowed, or my ears had got used to these cans! Use these with all my DAP's, FiiO X1, X3 and X5, plus with a Shanling M1 and M0. Each of these players has a different selection of music, so changing the DAP changes the kind of music I listen to. So, the HE35X's, after hours, it seemed, fiddling with EQ settings, I've hit on the right 'balance'. Don't ask me if it's V shaped or U shaped or even ?shaped, I just know what I like, and what sounds right. They sound right, I have other headphones, Sennheiser, Tomic, Mitchell & Johnson, plus a few IEM's as well. The HE35X's are the most comfortable, and sound great, so what else do I need?
Would recommend to a friend.
