Incredible value for the money. Of all the HFs I own, only the Focal Elexes are clearly better. The others: Senn HD 580 Precision (still very good!), HD 6xx, AKG 7xx, and Beyerdynamic 880. As others have written, they are quite balanced and sound good with lots different musical genres. I've enjoyed them with both pop vocals (Michele Branch, Dido, Sarah McL, etc.) and classical.
I also agree with those that say they profit from good inputs. Mine are Roon/Tidal>Gungnir multibit>Valhalla and Roon/Tidal>Grace m900 (available from Grace if you missed out on the m9xx as I did).
I haven't had any QC issues with these or anything else from MD (knocking on wood).
Curious to know how your other cans get any playtime when you have the Elex?
how do you like them compared to your dt880?
Both are good, but I have a slight preference for the 4xx.
