They all go over head apart from ear buds. Should change it to over ear

Great headphones. Recently bought some Sony 1000xm2 headphones and no where near as lively and punchy as these.

Would these work as an Xbox headset? I have the stereo adapter.

If you've got an adaptor that allows normal headphones to be used then I can't see why not, these aren't hard headphones to drive

Ordered, I reckon for £100 these are absolutely stunning headphones.

how does these fair against AKG K551's?

I'm partial to the Sony sound, have a set of the excellent MDR-V55's but want to upgrade so these are on my very short list, think I'll pull the trigger at this price?

Hmmm can't decide whether to order... Just picked up some Sennheiser Urbanites that haven't yet been opened

I have a friend who bought the built in DAC version for like £250, he said the sound quality was very good compared to the Sony professional ones. Beauty of Amazon is just buy and send back free of charge.

Also Used - Very Good for like £20 cheaper btw.

Get these instead, trust me, will be better.

Done, arriving tomorrow! Think I will prefer over ears than on ears anyway for desk use. Portability isn't a requirement. Love my Sennheiser IE8 IEMs, so naturally went down the Sennheiser route. Can always send these back if they disappoint.

I've had these for a couple of years and they are excellent, light, well made and very comfortable. Sound is accurate and punchy as well.
I thought these were discontinued now as replaced by new line, but they don't stop being good just because of that.
I got them for £90 so surprised they seem to have gone up in price.
I was looking to dip my toe into either the 1000xm2 or the Bose QC35 mk2 to benefir from the NC and wireless features, but from what I've heard neither comes close to the wired sound quality you get from these. It's a tradeoff but spending £300+ for a compromise?
Think I've decided to stay with these.

These or wait for a deal on Black Friday ?

Didn't Amazon stop doing free refunds a few months ago? I got charged a postage fee for my last few returns (and yes it was with Amazon, not a third party seller)

I think they have, they take the return charges out of your refund

Just ordered these totally out of impulse !
Thanks for the heads up

No worries, hope you enjoy them, be sure to give us your feedback

Received mine today and gave them a good testing this afternoon. They are very comfortable and the sounds does indeed impress. Unfortunately for my overly fussy ears, the bass isn't quite as tight as I'm looking for, and the treble is a bit too laid back so I'm probably going to return them. Everything I have read about the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 over ears suggests they are a better fit for what I'm looking for - but also more expensive than this deal

Cracking headphone for the price though!
