These are amazing!!! I own a number of headphones which cost £200 plus but these not only keep up but at times I think are better. When ever I have a friend looking to spend some real money on a brand line Bose / B&O /B&W etc I always ask them to listen to these first and they are blown away! I can't say enough good things about these cans!! BUY THEM! For the real big audiophile out there, they can be a little bass heavy at times, but personally I don' think they go too far and i like that kind of sound for I listen too.
