Worth 3-4x the price for the sound
These immediately became my favorite headphones. The sound is INCREDIBLE. I'm a brand new audiophile so I don't have the terminology to describe the sound, but I was blown away by how many more details I was hearing in songs I've been listening to for years. It was like hearing them for the first time.
They need a little bit of break-in time for the sound to reach it's full potential, not much though, maybe 5-10 hours? That's a rough guesstimate.
They are a little uncomfortable for extended listening, but the sound is so good that it's often times worth enduring. I ordered those yaxi pads everyone else recommends, so hopefully that makes a great thing even better.
The only real con for me is that the part that makes the sound so spacious and immersive— the open back— means these leak pretty bad. So definitely no library or quiet subway use. Not enough of a drawback to affect the 5 star rating though.
But these would be great for home listening, places where noise is tolerable (they have a bit of noise cancellation with the inline mic but probably not enough for very loud places,) and they would be awesome for running or outdoor fitness I think, because you could still have some spacial and situational awareness.
Overall, you will not regret this purchase. The sound out-performs many of my more expensive headphones. Plus they look funky and unique and are fun to wear in public for the looks lol. Buy them, what are you waiting for?
Would recommend to a friend.
