bought these largely guided by other reviews. the sound is pretty good although i think with hindsight i would get open ones. don't like the auto mute when you take them off which i only became aware of when it was too late, via another reviewer who also thought this a bad idea. he said his were already starting to give him problems. just another thing to malfunction in my mind and irritating if you want them to monitor your singing
the monitor arrived the next day and was a good price. really pleased with my final choice with the yamaha just a clean quality sound, tight bass. has transformed my listening to music which i was doing on computer speakers.
