I notice the open-back Status Audio OB-1 is at a good price too (£39.99): amazon.co.uk/Sta…EG/

I paid a lot more than this for mine and thought I got a bargain, nothing to compete with these for sound quality and comfort for anything remotely near this price.

Good review here

Good find. Strange they have fixed cables, per ear, and smaller drivers. Thought they'd be an open optimized version of

Absolute bargain. Picked mine up for 60 and thought they were excellent value. The only cans I have that really top these are a pair of planar magnetic hifi man's that were 4 times the price.

Good to hear! How do you find the pads and build?

Any of you guys knows how to get them wireless? Like with an Bluetooth adapter. My work phone is an iPhone -> so now headphone port...

Got a pair, want something to listen to music with and hear all the levels of music, last sets ive tried that did this cost well over £100, hope they are decent and comfy!

Would these be any good for keeping sound out on a plane?

IMO they are excellent. Already have a set for work and will buy a second for home at this price !

They keeep out a reasonable amount of background noise - but do not provide super isolation and are not noise cancelling. I actually don't like the really insular ones - these are a good halfway house for me.

Yes just use a small Bluetooth receiver. Plug into the jack on the headphones.

They do improve considerably after a few hours burn in, It'll just keep getting better :-)

Just heads up, the Amazon lightning deal has started and they shift them for £47! Just bought a pair

My pair is seriously unbalanced left and right. Hopefully the replacement is better.

Replacement is better. I must say Status Audio's customer support is fantastic.
