"best mobile headphones money can buy"4.5 starson by dsnerdking
Pros: great flat frequency response, super rich detail and build quality out the ass. low impedance means no amp. they stay on my head even wile running. great 2 year warranty. inline mike. removable cable. comes with hard case. little to no noise bleed.
Cons: if your a bass head they wont rock your world. to be honest the frequency response is so wonderfully flat that it can be boring to listen to at times. the sound stage is a little small because they are closed back headphones.
Summary: i have painstakingly listened to every headphone we sell at best buy and i can say without a doubt these are the best headphones to use paired with a cellphone mp3 player or tablet. these headphones are low resistance and are fairly easy to power with a mobile device. now i'm not saying that they cant benefit form an amp but the sound increase isn't night and day like with 32olm pair (which to achieve the same quality of sound is the way most headphones go). the best competitor would be the bowers and Wilkins p5 which i also own at 24olms but i prefer the sennheirsers. the have more detail and the don't bleed sound like the p5s do. i can blast my music next to my girl in bed and she hears nothing. the do do better with compressed audio but i don't have a problem with this because i listen to exclusively 320kbps. the detachable cable is nice so that you can wear the headphones without needing to have the cable in the way. the build quality is really good. all metal and leather (except the ear cups that are plastic) design that really gives you a premium feel to the headphones. the included case is a hard case. it wouldn't stop you for sitting on them but it will defiantly keep them safe in a bag lest you have a ton of bricks in with it. on to the sound. the sound is even or flat. you get an even mix of bass mids and treble. this makes them sound good with everything. this to some is perfect but the one drawback is because its good at everything it isnt great at anything. it doesnt have ear splitting bass warm mids or sweet sounding highs. this makes them a bit boring to listen to. the big thing that makes up for this is the level of detail you get in them. you are constantly going oow i didn't know that was there. i will say they are great audiophile headphones but if you specialize in a particular kind of music finding a pair that compliments that kind of music might be a better plan. but if your like me and love lots of different kinds of music and want to listen to it unamped and on the go these are the headphones to go with.
