Are they sonically better?

Are they sonically better?


16hz vs 18hz, other than that they seem identical
How good are these with noise isolation?

So, did you get them? What's your feedback? I'm tempted.

yes, very pleased.
well made ,lightweight, comfortable , noise isolation ok . Would have preferred a detachable cable but not expected for 20 quid

sound very detailed and 'reference ' like , probably not for those who like a boosted bass.
Some say headphone ' burn in ' is a myth but they are sounding better the more I use them

ok ...... not as good as my old AKG's , but they have shaped to my head over the years.
much better than my open backed ones
also the pads are quite stiff which doesn't help

Update, with warning. Do Not Buy! Mine were dire.
Boomy upper bass. Recessed mids. Even further recessed treble that would occasionally shine through unpleasantly. How this junk managed to have excessive sibilance is beyond me.
So years after their ravings about the Linn Condeck, I still have reason to mistrust any What HiFi review
I'm only looking for headphones with good passive noise isolation. I couldn't care less about the bass response. I'd play some brown noise to isolate even further. My previous was a Sennheiser HD 280 and was very disappointed.
