I did a ton of research over a few weeks before settling on these headphones and they're the best value for money I could find, rivalling headphones costing hundreds more. They portray an incredible level of detail, clarity, and resolution, accurately delivering the sound the original engineers intended without colouration across pretty much any range of sound. This precision makes them absolutely perfect for sound mixing; and at the same time they remain at the top of the pack for fun and immersive listening to just about any genre of music, as well as watching films or gaming. Ridiculously comfortable, and many owners seem to agree that they last years while remaining in top condition - not surprising for a premium product hand crafted in Germany.
Includes a classy leatherette carry case for storage.
