Excellent sound, options, fit and finish
Clean, clear sound with very good bass extension. Detail is very good, without any harshness in the upper register. They didn't seem to me to require a lot of break in, but after some 20 hours of listening they may have just mellowed a little bit. The ear cups isolate well, and are some of the most comfortable of any headphone I've used.
They come with two cables - one has a built in microphone & volume cable for using with iPhones and the like. The cables can also be plugged into either ear. Cable length is good, though I would like an extra foot or so for using at my desk at work (so I can route the cable away from mouse/keyboard a little bit). The storage/carrying case is a nice bit of kit and keeps the headphones clean & not banged up in transit.
Fit and finish is excellent, worthy of a considerably higher asking price.
The only flaw I've found with these headphones is that they are tight on the top of my head when placed properly on my ears, even fully extended. My head is larger than most (seriously, it's pretty damn big. I have to wear XL or greater sized fitted hats, and even some of them are tight), but it's such a shame considering the great sound and extraordinarily comfortable ear cups.
I'll still give them a five.
