I own 3 pairs of headphones, VMODA M100's, Audio Technica M50X's, and these. I do most of my mixing on my M50X's and M100's, but these are my go to headphones for when making final mix decisions and mastering. These are not fun headphones, there big, and extremely flat. But what they offer is the truth, what I mix on these comes out the same on my professional monitors. You don't feel the bass with these but you can clearly hear them and compare them to the rest of the mix. If your going to buy these headphones just for listening pleasure, I wouldn't recommend them, but if you live in the city and can't use your monitors all the time or at all, these are a god send for those moments.
