First planars, first open backs, first Hifimans
And b/c of that I don't have a lot of reference points for comparison. This is also my first review, and as you can tell I'm not fluent in specs or audio lingo. That's not something I'm offering as a positive, but rather for caveat emptor reasons. I'm giving these a good review b/c plugged into my laptop, music sounds incredible and I haven't noticed any deficiencies in sound. In fact, I've noticed better resolution which allows tighter focus on what I'm listening to (that includes about 90% jazz of all styles from the 1950s to current, consisting of bands of all sizes and instrument combos). My hearing is good, and I haven't noticed any need to include an amp in the chain as I don't need to pump volume levels; although I'm admittedly out of my league when it comes to amps and when/why they're required and/or helpful. Why not 5 stars? Well, maybe it's my problem but after 1.5-2 hours of wear these become uncomfortable and I have to take them off. Any suggestions on how to achieve longer duration of comfort are welcomed; whether that's ear pads, adjustments or just allowing for more break-in time. At this price point and the performance I've experienced, I would definitely recommend them to friends.
