I listen to brass band music and opera, these headphones are giving the best sound reproduction quality Ive ever had for these specialist types of music. If Sennheiser have a better product for my needs please let me know.
Everything is quality except the flimsy, super thin cord which feels too cheap. Apart from that, these emboss a great bass reproduction and as a Trap/Electro House/Dubstep/Rap listener I am pleased with the superb sound quality. The fit is firm and solid - they won't slide off of your head which is great for gym usage. Many complain about the comfortability without giving them an adequate amount of time to set in after consistent wearing use, so give them a decent shot as after 2 weeks of prolonged usage these become naturally comfortable. The rotatable ear cup comes in handy naturally too, for conversation usage without removing the headphones. The ear cup mechanism feels solid alongside the rest of the headphone, which feels durable and robust. The matte black finish looks great, and paired with the contrasting metallic look increasing the aesthetic immensely. Sound quality is top-notch as long as your download doesn't contain interference - URL downloads from youtube work best. Sound is great from mobile phones but sound the best when paired with a laptop or an amp. Overall, top product, great sound quality, just a shame about the cable.
Perfect. Cannot get better than this :)
