A special feature of this headphone is the changeable sound which can be selected in four stages from an analytical sound to a rich, full bass via the “CUSTOM Sound Slider” bass reflex vents at the housing shells. Another property of these “CUSTOM Sound Slider” feature is the more they are closed, the more they attenuate ambient noise considerably.

Contained the headphones, manual, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm screw on adapter, a perfect length detachable wire (not sure how long), warranty and an allen key (hex key to some). It was simple to open and easy to get to - which I like. Please note though, that they are absolutely HUGE. I wouldn't really want to wear them out in public. I have a pair of X41's, and after wearing CPO, the 41's looked as though they should have gone on my ear.
Before I go any further, if you haven't already read the title, I used to have a pair of Bose OE V1. They weren't half bad, and as I get all my Bose products VAT free, it wasn't such a bad deal. I just found they lacked in every spectrum. Bass was more rumble, lack in mids, and pretty much no highs. They were, however, exceptionally comfy, and the case that came with them was brilliant.
The highs were amazing straight out of the box. I've recently started listening to even more genres of music, including airy stuff (don't know the name of the genre, artist name is Exist Strategy). My god, it was as if there was actually new instruments and sounds in the songs. The sound can only be described as graceful. It's amazingly relaxing. I'd give them overall a 10/10
As I said before, when I first got them out of the box, they were lacking big time. However after extremely large amounts of use, they're appearing. Slowly, but they are. Don't let me put you off though, they were still better than the Bose out of the box. Sometimes, however, I feel as though the bass has to compensate for the lack of bass, and you start getting boomy sub bass, which is not what I wanted. If I had wanted insane amounts of bass, I would have gone with Sony's XB series.Read more ›
Personally I found the "Linear" setting perfectly acceptable. The "Vibrant" and "Heavy" were just too heavy for me, but I still think very useful if your amp lacks serious bass or you aren't sure how much bass you need.
Bass is definitely where these headphones are. Mine haven't run-in yet, but the one thing that is very noticeable is the definition in the extreme bass is improving all the time. You know the bass I mean - the type you can't exactly hear, but you rather feel instead.
They are most certainly amongst the top when it comes to comfort. They entirely cover your ears and don't grip too tightly, although they do grip a little, so perhaps don't quite rate as the best when it comes to that. Something like Sennheiser HD600's are more comfortable, but then they are in a different price bracket.
So! If you want a rich, warm sounding, comfortable pair of headphones, or perhaps you need a little bass boost, then these are well worth considering. Certainly good value for money and for the money they deserve five stars. There are better headphones around, but only if you are prepared to spend a lot more.
Oh, incidentally, the cable is 1.5m long, just in case that's important to you.
Six months later I am dropping their rating from a five to a one! Why? Because the ear-pads are £20 each and they keep falling apart. I have now used THREE of them. They last no more than three or four months and the are not guaranteed! So I am afraid I am marking them down on the very poor quality ear pads.
They are incredibly comfortable to wear for long periods of time and give an incredible listening experience. They are not quite as detailed as Audio Technica's ATH-M50's, but I prefer the warmly detailed sound that comes from these. The adjustable bass ports are not just a gimmick and have a real effect on the sound, although I wouldn't recommend having them all the way open or closed, as that sacrifices sound quality.
Construction is solid and built to last. Paired with easily replaceable parts, I don't foresee having to buy new headphones for years to come.
TL;DR: Give them at least 100 hours of burn in. Sound is amazing, great comfort. Will last for ever. I definitely recommend them
