I purchased these cans for home listening. The construction is mostly plastic, lightweight yet flimsy. The pads are comfortable but they get hot quickly. Sound is very flat with good frequency range but rather boring and lacking in detail. I tried using them for recording and found they were well suited for that purpose because they are so neutral. They are great as cheap studio monitors, however I would not recommend these for home listening.
tfw you call high grade polymer plastics "flimsy"
tfw you call open velour pads "hot"
tfw you call headphones designed for fun sound "flat
tfw you also call them "neutral"
tfw you call open headphones suitable for "monitoring"
recording with open headphones???
i do most of my mixing and recording with open headphones (grado sr80e's) its a matter of preference. i honestly prefer colour and detail over flatness because I know how to compensate for non-flat audio outputs. For vocals i lose pitch a little if i cant hear myself properly so opens help a lot there. however for monitoring live performance or things where you are trying to focus on only what is coming out of the headphones and surroundings are noisy, then thats when closed back is better.
so that i dont get hate i also I use a pair of audio-technica m30x's that i will probs upgrade to m70x's
Do they come with velour pads?
