Nice sound balance, good bass, with details. The sound is realistic. It fits snuggly on your ears, but comfortable. It is on-ear (supra-aural) closed-back headphones, not over ears (circumaural), so it does not completely shut down outside noise. So it may not be suitable for office use or recording, but perfect for just listening to the music on-the-go. It is super-cool retro minimalistic looking, and I am really satisfied with price and quality.
