Top positive review
Expensive but incredible quality and comfort.
20 July 2017
This is the first pair of really high-end in-ear phones that I have purchased. My previously pair were Sennheiser Momentum 2's which were great but finally gave out after much heavy use. I decided to spend a bit more on my next pair.
First off; the fit. I have often had problems in the past with uncomfortable fitting phones. The N40s loop over the ear and then fit snugly in place. This keeps them from getting snagged and falling out. I have to say, they fit incredibly well (for me at least). I can wear them for a long time without discomfort.
Second; the sound. I was concerned that there would not be that great a difference from the Sennheiser's, but Christ, these sound like nothing else I have ever listened too. Incredible.
It comes with three filters that alter the sound (reference, bass boost, high boost). These are a bit fiddly to change but do make a difference. Having tried them all I have stuck with the reference filters - I like dance music, bass and all but the reference filters are not lacking in this dept and I prefer not to distort music when listening to other genres.
Overall, these cost a lot of money, but get 5/5 for comfort and for sound quality. If you want some exceptional head phones and can afford it I would definitely recommend these.
