The other night I got these headphones in the mail, and after breaking them in, I immediately started playing Beck's "Sea Change." As soon as the first chord of The Golden Age began, my jaw dropped. These are seriously great headphones. The stereo image is amazingly wide. The clarity in every octave is great. The bass isn't hyped either, like in other closed-back headphones. The highs are crisp without being shrill. Don't be fooled by the high price of other critical listening headphones, these are on par with anything else. If you like the AKG K701s, you will love these!

Very nice professional headphones

Professional headphones, what else is there to say.. The velour ear pads are like pillows on your ears. They come with a replacement set of velour ear pads as well. I can always count on my sales engineer AJ Petersen when it comes to choosing the best equipment.

Splendid headphones!

Why did I put up with mediocre headphones for so long? Got these as we headed into final mix on CD project. Looked at plethora of choices out there, read the hairsplitting nuances shared by the mighty pro's.... and went with Sales Engineer's advice. Very happy. Excellent detail for a close listen, a pleasure for enjoying a good mix. Love the detachable cord, flexible fit, etc. Cool carrying case, too. If you've got really good speakers and great DAW, treat yourself to headphones on par.
