Great sound! let down by comfort.
on 24 May 2014
Having received and use these headphones, the build quality is very solid and won't break too easily with every day use. Although its looks solid, I think it's too much plasticky compared to most headphones. The sound is awesome but let down by the discomfort after about 2 hours of use. The clamp on my ears were too tight causing discomfort and starting to sweat around the ears. The 3.5 m jack is not very user friendly with mobile phones if you have the protector on because the head is way too big compare with every most jacks. It will only plug in properly if you remove the casing on you phones which is a pain, I suppose these headphones wasn't made to use with mobile phones I suppose. The thick coil lead is often heavy and obvious which can be annoying. I would recommend buying the straight cable. Comparing it to my bose qc,these are definately have more clarity, but not as bassy as the bose. Everything sound clear and crisp, exactly what music should be. I much prefer the bose because it's much lighter and way more comfortable than the audio technical. These headphones were only suppose to be use in the studio for monitoring. I would'nt recommend them if you want to use it outside the studio.
