Not much to say here that the rest of the Internet hasn't gone on at length about already. I'm also not a fancy Internet Reviewer who can describe linearity using food metaphors or the bass response as a plumbing problem, so I'll just say: these are wonderful headphones that both fit well enough and sound good enough for me to use for hours at a time. I typically have a hard time wearing headphones for long sessions, because my ears and head overheat quickly and I generally get too fatigued to continue wearing them; these, out of the box, have been basically perfect for my apparently weirdly-shaped noggin.
I originally tried to drive these with the portable DAC/Amp that I use with my IEMs (a Cypherlabs Theorem 720) before the real amp I had planned for them arrived, and it couldn't produce nearly enough power. Now I have them hanging off of a Schiit Jotunheim with a modified OEM cable (XLR/balanced), and that pairing has been wonderful. tl;dr: Don't cheap out on power.

That was funny!
