Excellent headphones. I find them very comfortable. The audio profile is amazing. I find myself picturing the instruments I'm hearing. The description "lively" makes sense to me now. Every element of the music is active while audible. The clarity is like nothing I've heard before (full disclosure: I've never paid more than $100 for a set of headphones before these). I explored O.R.k.'s Soul of an Octopus, Porcupine Tree's In Absentia and Fear of a Blank Planet albums, and Godsmack's acoustic album, The Other Side. Everything sounded better than I've heard it before--pure pleasure. I didn't tire of the music at all. I had to be pulled away from the headphones by my wife.
A note on amplification: I listened to O.R.k. and Porcupine Tree as FLAC files on my Samsung Galaxy S8 with no additional amplification. I turned the volume up all the way for most of it. It was as loud as I would normally want it. I listened to Godsmack as FLAC files using a Fiio amp and digital music player. I had plenty of room to go louder with these headphones amplified.
