I have set of Cherry Vibros that I just purchased recently. Absolutely love them. The wood stain is absolutely gorgeous in person (specially the custom stain Zach did for me). They have a very smooth laid back sound with very lush mids. The sound stage is amazingly large for close cans and honestly feel larger to my ears than a lot of open head phones. They are also very comfortable as long as you realize you can bend the head strap to whatever shape and clamp fits your head.
I use these over 8 hours a day and they are great for both gaming and music. They are the only high end headphones I can listen to at higher volumes without getting fatigued from treble (My ears are sensitive to sharp 10k notes).
A couple of things to note though...
First - You will need an amp to get the most out of these. (I use a schitt vali or fiio e9k). They work ok straight from my HTC M7 but require more power for anything above semi quiet listening.
Second - These are audiophile headphones with audiophile bass. Bass is clean and extended but don't expect over powering emphasized bass. For example these have much more bass than AKG 553 pros, but slightly less than Fidelio X2's. With 1 bass port open, they sound very similar to HE 500's I think. The bass is close to perfect to me, but you can always EQ it up a bit if you're more used to more common over-bassy consumer cans. Zach is great to work with so can always address any concerns with him.
For everyone that got them, enjoy!
Wow Thanks Deci, and you addressed a lot of stuff that really important to know and well described. I owe you one! Great to hear you're enjoying them. These take very well to EQ as well if desired, although I've gotten out of the habit of using EQ since most ZMF owners don't.
No problem Zach, Thank you for the great headphones!
Yeah I don't generally EQ either, but I did test my Vibros with a little extra bass and it was very nice! (Specially for explosion sounds)
