They are really good. I have been listening to Glen Brown Termination Dub for 20 years and heard it for the first time the other night through these headphones. Would highly recommend their earbuds as well.

Fantastic headphones - excellent bass, mids and treble. Cups are smaller than you'd think from picture, but they're really comfy. These wipe the floor of the Denons I previously had.

The sound from these headphones is brilliant. The look is great because its understated and slightly retro. The headphones can e a bit uncomfortable but its just a matter of getting them in the right place. The braided cable is fantastic. It's hard to believe that these are cheap headphones. I know that the driver cover is plastic and the headband isn't real leather but this can be forgiven as they sound great and look good too. I wish I'd waited for the 950i then I'd have the complete package. But because these headphones are so good I'm not going to simple replace them for a more expensive pair.

Addendum
After about 20 hours of running in I tried them again with my main HiFi (a Linn system). Unsurprisingly they did sound at their best.

High trebles have improved: still not perfect but much closer.

Presence has also improved but the presentation is still a little recessed

Deep basses have gained even better control.

Dynamics also improved

Well done RHA

Note: this time I tried them with my eyeglasses on. In this case the pressure on the ears makes them uncomfortable

Original Review
Short Version
These are excellent and very musical headphones. Sound quality is excellent and so the built and material quality. They look very classy. The detachable chord is a professional touch and it is wonderful: it is made of a texture material which does not tangle nor it does make any fastidious noise. They are easy to adjust, are fairly small, light and quite comfortable, although there are more comfortable headphones aimed at very prolonged listening (of several hours).
They show good isolation and do not leak sound.

In short it is difficult to find anything better at this price and it is easy to find worse even at five times it.

Detailed review
I did not perform a very long burn in yet (only about 5 hours). I may add further notes later if significant.

Construction (10/10)
They are very well built, look sturdy, classy and use excellent material

Comfort (8/10)
The can be adjusted very easily on the best position.
They are not as sensitive to positioning as other headphones I tried, but still must be positioned optimally.
They cover the ears and isolate very well.

Wonderful new headphones from a company new to me. Wonderfully constructed, though perhaps more for desk/indoor duty than out on the street and a nice tactile feel. Comfortable for several hours wear, superb sound quality and an absolute steal of a price!

These are great quality and great value for the money. I had toyed with splashing out on a really nice set of headphones but after trying the popular brands in a shop I've come back to these for a second time.

I've found these are very well balanced (others are too bassy - if I want the bass cranked up I'll adjust the EQ thankyouverymuch!), very comfortable even for my big head and although they don't fold up much they don't take up much room in my bag.

Good sound, lead a little short for desk work but suitable if on the move. Love the lead being detachable at both ends. After a while - maybe an hour or so - I have to keep adjusting them as they get really uncomfortable. Eventually I change to an over-ear pair which have poorer sound but are much more comfortable for prolonged use.
