Meh. The overall sound is nasaly, kind of like there is a blanket covering it. As compared to my cheap Sampson SR50's for $29, the Sampson out performs it in fit and audio quality. Not impressed.
Changed out the foam inserts to a thinner, less dense ones, made a world of difference. Cleared up the details a bit more and took the stuffiness out. Still want to change out the pads to some cloth or velvet ones, as the pleather ones feel hot on my ears and not too comfortable.
Update: 01/15/19 Changed out the pads, a few times. It's really not helping this set, more comfy on the head, yes. Bass is still non-existent even for flat, my Samsons SR805s are cheaper and sound much better for sure! I have at least 20 pairs of headphones in my collection, these are flat last on the list that I wanna grab. Anyone want them? lol! Don't get me started on the crappy and super uncomfortable headband. My head is BALD and doesn't work with my baldness. Ugh. Bad purchase for me. Let's hope the AKG 550s MK3 I just ordered are better than these. Nope, I think actually the AKG 550s are even worse than these. Seriously, what is wrong with AKG and their anemic approach to sound quality?
These are studio headphones, they don't really boost the base or trebble and it is designed to be flat for clean studio editing. That might be the "blanket covering it" effect you described, but it's intentionally flat.
Yup. Totally get it, I'm an Audio engineer and producer since the 80s. Flat is one thing, but the nasally overall sound was due to the dense foam they added. The ear pads also are a bit thin and would be better suited with thicker ones for better comfort and perhaps a but more vocal intimacy when changed. I'll update when I try that.
Definetly not for studio use, lacks the detail and imaging of a half decent studio phone.
