Customer Review

on 15 June 2012
Excellent but not overwhelming bass with a midrange that brings out the best in vocals, these are great portable phones. They do not leak sound, so not anti-social. They benefit from adjustments to the EQ settings on your portable player as there is a neutral quality to the Downtowns. To gain more control and power they also benefit from a small portable amp like the fiio E6. They get more comfortable with use as well. Two acquaintances who have listened to my pair have gone on to purchase them. I will never go back to in-ears as too dependent on exact positioning and do not give the soundstage these are capable of. For the price these are superb set of headphones with a refined sound, probably lost on the generation that enjoys being sledgehammered by the artificial bass boosts of Dr Dre's beats.
