Good price for these, they get good reviews, I personally really didn't like their sound.

There are headphones around this price that will give you a better listening experience. These are definitely for studio monitoring only in my opinion.

But it's all subjective! Great price anyway

What would you recommend? What was it about them you didn't like? I'm tempted to get a pair but I'm very fussy I have some sennheiser CX 300 II in-earphones and love those.
it'll blow them away
Good headphones but I don't think it's a good deal. It's been this price for 2 months and their normal price for the past year is just 2% higher at £112, not £130. They were £90-£99 for most of 2015 too before getting a sudden big price increase for whatever reason(probably because their brand started getting a good image so they could up the price on all existing products).

So yeah good headphones, and maybe even a good price, but I don't think it's really a good deal if it's its normal price.
Had a pair of them for a while had to get rid just couldn't take their sound any more there's alot more better headphone for the same money!!!

Yea and no. Sound is subjective. These are studio reference headphones so are not for bassheads etc.

I would suggest the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro for around this price, so much nicer sounding for music listening.

Even the Sony MDR-7506 is cheaper and in my opinion nicer sounding for the money.

Im no expert I've just tried and testing a lot of headphones

I'm actually a music man spent many years in the studio had a home set up for years, the crazy thing the 40X sound much better sound wise IMO had both side by side had a good compare.

I like a bit of bass but I want to feel like I am inside the music. Too much bass and not enough range and it's pointless. Would you say these have a good balance?

Which would you say have more bass, 40x or 50x?

Everyone's ears is different but you can tell from the 50X it has a very V shape sound stage which give off alot of bass but also adds a lot of treble sharpness which can be a strain on the ear over a period of time the 40X is much more flatter IMO if it's bass is what your looking for I would go with the 50X but there are better headphones out there Sennheiser, Sony etc

Uhm.. I find bass lacking in these, though not as bad as others. Might find that an amp might give it some more punch.
Had these for a couple of years. Amazing quality. The EQ is fairly flat with only a slight incline on the bass, just enough to make it punchy without drowning out the rest of the music. Bare in mind that you need to set your EQ to flat to get the best out of these! They're designed for recording studio use so you'll be hearing it as it was intended to be heard.... (made sense in my head) 👌🏻
Well worth a punt at this price. I'd keep an eye on the bluetooth variants though with the way the headphone jack is being killed off. Sad times.

Can verify that the DT990 Pro (though a little sharp on the treble and lacking in the bass; primarily due to being open-backed by design) are much better value at this price point. And they're possibly the most comfortable headphones I've tried, those velour cups and solid clamp on your noggin', wow!
