Best for Price
Fully burnt in 100 hours after receiving it. This headphone sounds incredible. If you are still on Apple earpods, the change in sound quality and clarity is really off the roof. Smooth mids and somewhat sparkly highs. However, bass is a tad shy, a little more bass would be better, this amount of bass in enough for most but not bass heads. Sound clarity is also excellent , I heard some details I never had before in songs that I had for years. Soundstage is also incredible, not like those "in your head" closed backs. Long cable and 3.5mm adapter kinda make this rather clumsy to use. Overall, a Sennheiser HD600 or HD650 would still be better but this beats them all in value.

Pros: Sound
Sound Clarity
Did I mention soundstage?
1/4 to 1/8 adapter

Cons: 3m cable
1/4 inch plug
Adapter adds unnecessary bulk. ( 3inch long overall! )
Rather fragile build

That concludes my review, thanks for reading!

Great headphone for getting into open back headphones
Coming from using the Audio-Technica ATH-M50, the experience is completely different (of course...closed-back vs open-back). Brings to the table all the benefits of an open-back headphone - wider soundstage with more airiness. Definitely not for music with a massive bassline but wonderful for listening to the vocals in my music. Clarity is awesome for this item at this price point without a doubt.
