Haven't got a pair myself but currently window shopping for some new headphones and found these. But they have got excellent reviews on Amazon.

Hot !!! Absolutely brilliant headphones. I've been using them for quite some time now for recording / mixing & also gaming, and they haven't let me down!

Please remember if you buy them that they take about 20-30 hours to fully "break-in"

Baffles me that you can get headphones as good as these for this price, but people will still go and buy Beats.

It's all about the weight...these headphones don't have those special extra pieces of metal added inside like the Beats do that make the Beats better quality..:p

They are very good phones indeed, especially at this price. Slight emphasis on the lower end so need to be cross-refenced with something more neutral for mixing purposes, but nowhere near as bad as Beats. etc. which are basically just crap.

Good price

I bought the M40X last week, just couldn't justify the extra £30 for these.

Hot price though, when compared to elsewhere.

Just sellotape a couple of horse shoes to the outside of the earpieces for the real Beats(TM) feel...

Beats are for fashion lovers, these are for music lovers - I don't see a problem with that? Pay your money and make your choice.

Broad question, but what are these like for actual music? I am of the understanding that these are quite neutral, hence being good for studio use etc, but does this translate well to day to day listening of regular audio?

They certainly aren't neutral... leaning more the low end. It makes them perfect for all rounders IMO - music audio production, casual listening, gaming etc.

I found mine sounded a lot nicer when I sold my soundcard (Xonar D2) and upgraded my motherboard to one with a headphone amp as well. Seems give them a little more of a cleaner/punchier sound...

they are excellent for listening to music but I wouldn't recommend using them on the bus/tube. they are really big so you'll look like a **** and they are noise isolating so you won't hear any background noise which could be important.

I primarily use mine for watching films and gaming on my PS4 (you can get an adapter for like £1). very satisfied.

Ah right. Cheers for the clarification. These do seem to be the best bet for over ear headphones under £100. I know there are some decent on ear phones for similar price, but never got on with them comfort wise.

They are certainly good for regular listening, but it's all relative. Their slightly hyped low end still won't be enough if you are used to booming bass. And obviously the better the file quality the more point there is in having nice cans like these.

Been after these for a while..

Wonder if its worth the extra fiver on amazon. Hows service from inta-audio.. never heard of these guys?

amazon.co.uk/Aud…86/

Inta-audio also sell through Amazon, so must be fairly legit.

Check out their feedback here.

Edit: They appear to be selling the M50x for cheaper than Amazon, on Amazon.

Inta Audio well known in pro audio circles, I've purchased from them in the past with no problems.

Been using mine for about a week now. They are amazing headphones although the clamping force on my head is a bit tight, I'm hoping they will free up a bit after prolonged use. Also looking at getting some velour ear pads as the pleather is quite stiff.

The sound quality is excellent, maybe a touch bass heavy though.

Make sure you use something like power amp to make the most of these with a phone.
Sound quality is amazing. Great deal do not miss out of your looking for great cans

Bought a couple of things from these recently, and their service is spot on, especially if you choose the next day delivery through DPD.

Same her, nearly as good. And good enough for me

Pretty good deal for a great pair of cans.

Indeed, if you're not a fan of the bass bias, the M40x are a good alternative - they're almost identical but with a more neutral sound and slightly smaller drivers for ~£20 less

Great set of headphones. If anyone is interested dbrand will be doing some custom skins for these soon according to their twitter.

Beats suck. They are way too heavy on the bass.
