The best sound I've ever heard (and i've heard my share) in any pair of headphones coupled with the perfect amount of isolation that is actually really good for not needing batteries.. oh and the stereo/mono switch is pretty cool (not a dj)
They are just slightly uncomfortable but they say you need to get out of your comfort zone to make good friends, why not do the same for sound... I just got these, so i haven't experienced breakage yet but i worry because of what they say.
Bottom line, BUY THESE!!! they are absolutely the epitomy of quality in pretty much every way shape and build! Plus with these being headphones, all i can say is that you need to hear these for yourself to be the judge. but as a rio karma owner (who can adjust ... Read full review
Bottom line, BUY THESE!!! they are absolutely the epitomy of quality in pretty much every way shape and build! Plus with these being headphones, all i can say is that you need to hear these for yourself to be the judge. but as a rio karma owner (who can adjust the sound to whatever he wants), I don't think there is any better of a pair of devices. If you use an ipod, I'm not promising anything (i say this for all of my headphone reviews). As for specs, i don't get much into that even though the one thing i do know from comparison, 50mm is pretty much the biggest you can get in drivers and not many headphones can even get close to 107db wheras pioneers claim they can (I haven't tried for the sake of my ears). as for power, i'm really shocked... On my rio karma, I'm at 14 notches! to give you an idea, the skullcandy earbuds needed 16 to get as loud and the skullcandy G.I.s (i was into the cheap skull candys before these) need 20 whole notches. Very impressive i have to say. I am saying this all even while listening to these right now as i type. I've had them for less than a day so they aren't even broken in yet.. they say allow like 8 hrs or so to break in the drivers so that means they aren't even at their peak yet. I am much looking forward to the many months of listening ahead of me with these.
