After a couple of days break in it went from good to great. And once I added the DAC Magic XS to the laptop and more recently the OPPO HA-2SE (to all sources), the sound was lifted further.
Using sources as the laptop (with its better than average dac), to a FIIO x5ii, to a Galaxy S7. Music ranging from a mix of MP3 320, AAC 256 and FLAC; diverse genres classical (from strings to symphonies, no arias!), metal, rock, pop, instrumentals, all are so well presented by these its a joy to listen. (Even older very compressed music do better than ever before). Movies sound output from headphone socket on my Roku 3 is also nothing shy of staggering!
Previous main headphone / sound and comfort comparison:
My previous headphones were the AKG 550 which I loved and were unfortunately destroyed by a toddler diving on the. By comparison, I prefer these; shame it took a few days to break these in and hence I couldn't objectively compare the sound between both of them in a clear way.
Either way, the AKGs were not that comfortable on longer sessions and required a good break every hour or two - but the sound was so pleasing I put up with it for quite a while. These are much more comfortable for me - just now, they've been on for a good few hours.
The sound stage is great. Everything is so clear with good separation of instruments and voice, the bass is there when you need it (not a bass heavy person, but there'd always be the OPPO Bass boost or EQ). Fast music is fast, instrumentals all come clear as a whistle! Vocals are great and distinct, both male and female including when mixed with powerful instrumental tracks.
Concluding: just wow, really happy with these. Can it be bettered at this price range? Let me know if you find any!
First, sound quality:
I switched to these from a cheap pair of Sennheiser 202's, which were great for the money, but obviously not comparable to the likes of these. Before buying these I'd also listened to competing products and pretty much all ranges of headphones, from AT M50's to Sennheiser 600's to (Yes, I know, fashion accessories) Beats by Dr Dre. These blow all of the aforementioned out of the water in terms of audio fidelity.
I'm going to be clear and not sugar coat the fact, however, that these are not what you're looking for if all you're interested is an "exciting" or "punchy" sound. These do sound fun, don't get me wrong - but they don't do anything to the music. Literally, they have a completely flat frequency response and audio reproduction. But that is NOT bad... For audiophiles and people like myself who want to hear things how they were produced and meant to be heard, not through some equalizer, these headphones are a dream come true.
I'm not exaggerating my statement when I say these headphones make you want to listen to every song in your music library all over again, because you hear new things you'd never known existed in the songs before, and just in a completely different way. (Assuming what you're listening to is well produced and a good quality copy. Crap in = crap out, if you listen to 160Kbps MP3s through these and then a pair of £50 headphones, the difference will be almost negligible.)
Such accurate and clear audio reproduction isn't overly useful when listening to low quality MP3s, movie rips, old games and the likes because you can hear everything that's "wrong" with the audio. But if you're listening to a good source, these will blow your mind.
I have a medium-large head, and these fit me just fine. They are heavier than some headphones, but this has never affected me. They are a pleasure to wear - they are VERY loose fitting and you can forget that you're wearing them, if that's what you're after. I can fall asleep in these no problems at all. This can be an issue if you want to use these in public or while moving about, however. They are prone to falling off if you shake your head too much. They're not too bad, you can walk about in them, but they're not for sports. The pads themselves are so soft to the touch that the first time you feel them, you'll be naturally inclined to check that your senses didn't deceive you and feel them once more. They really are that soft, and I love it. I'm very fussy with comfort, and I can wear these for about 5-6 hours in a row without taking them off before they become uncomfortable.
You're not paying for naff cans here. These come with an abundance of accessories, and they're all great quality. I'm not going to list them one by one... You can read the list in almost any other review or on the product description. What I will say is that they all fit in the carry case comfortably, and are all very useful.
Not much can be said here, because they're simply so good. Not a hitch in this department. I honestly don't mind the plastic build - it's practical, light, and convenient. These do not feel or look cheap at all, if aesthetics worry you. Although they do use imitation leather (leatherette, to be specific), it's very good quality fake leather.
If you're after a decent pair of headphones that will last you a long time, and are appropriate for all types of audio for any genre, these are for you. They're worth every penny (£200 at the time I bought them. If they're cheaper right now, BUY THEM).
If you're looking at these because they look like the Beats or want cool headphones with a brand name to show off, these are really not your headphones. Their sound quality will be wasted on you.
