This is the best pair of headphones for the money. When paired with a proper amp and dac (I am using the 02 + SDAC massdrop product) it really makes these come alive. I found that it took about a week of constant use to get the headphones to really break in, particularly with their fit. Myself and a friend who also ordered a pair found them to have extremely strong clamping pressure. This meant that for the first week we would both get headaches after a couple hours of use. That said, after a week the clamping pressure greatly softened, as did the ear pads. Now I can easily wear them all day and occasionally forget I have them on.
The product came very nicely packaged and the new color of the headphones is very subtle. I am not an audiophile so I can't really comment on the sound quality apart from the fact that these are the most detailed headphones I have ever used. I have revisited a bunch of old music that I downloaded in lossless format and its incredible all the details I previously missed.
I would say that my use of these headphones is split 60:40 between gaming and listening to music. These are a massive step up from any gaming headset I have ever owned and I highly recommend them for gaming. The open back design helps with creating a larger sound stage and improving directional audio.
If I had to make the decision to buy these headphones again, I wouldn't think twice.
