Sounds great on metal and rock. Considering price i couldn’t want more. They can be a little bit too tight sometimes but it may be because they are just out-of-package or just personal comfort preference.
Nice headphones that sound great. All you need to know and more besides is on a big thread over on the head go forum. Suffice to say they punch well above their weight.
I think that if these drivers were mounted in a material less susceptible to resonance, we would probably talking about a headphone level higher than the price on the market. I can still enjoy the music.
