They are great minus the quality control. when I bought mine the grills were popped out and the screws that held in the cups were popping out. Luckily I have experience with Hifimans so I got it all sorted out. If you're going to use these long term make sure to buy a small Allen key. When it comes to the screws on the cups coming loose it's more of a question of when than if. Now that we got that out of the way lets move on to the sound. They sound amazing for the price very reminiscent of my the 400i's except they are a good deal cheaper than the 400i's msrp. I know that the 400i's are on sale now for about 220$ but I wouldn't say there is much reason to go that route. Unless you want a really nice case but I'd rather save the 50+ dollars. The classic look is stellar made me feel 8 years younger seeing the old style and it being improved, the clips that hold the cups on no longer feel like they're going to snap off. Soundstage and that fast tight planar bass is the reason to buy these, I do feel like the Sennheiser collabs like the hd6xx and 58x jubilee are superior in every way besides those 2 subjects. Owning all of these great cans that is my humble opinion.
I've got a >1 week old support request for the cup screw popping out in less than 8 hours of usage in my first 24 hours of ownership.
It is a pain, they need to make the screws slightly bigger and longer for this not to be an issue. Mines popped out the second time I put them on my head haha.
