I use these headphones on a daily basis. Whether it be listening to music, or playing my favorite video game. These headphones are reliable, and you can count on them working every time you plug them in. The sound quality is unmatched for the price, and you just cannot go wrong with these headphones.
Hello.. I use these mostly for listing to all types of music from trance to Classical, and some R&B in-between. the headphone covers everything really well, Clean bass when listening to some Trance(W&W,Orjan,Armin etc). I also listen to Classical music and I must say I am very pleased with the Performance. I am not an audiophile but Its great that I feel absolutely no lack of bass when listing to trance music(unlike some other sound stage headphones that lack any bass) and at the same time the bass just steps back when I listen to the classical stuff. You can listen for hours thanks to the sound stage, it doesn't hurt my ears even after extended use.The bass is clean not exaggerated and artificial.. these are best for home you, since its open it leaks..the cable is 3 meters long which I don't mind, I walk around my room with it. sound keeps getting better after about 2-3 days of use..
Used with a decent amp and lossless digital source, I found these excellent. The sound is more airy and layered than a closed back design. Sennheiser's own Momentums are more focused, 'colourful' and immediate, and more source-tolerant, but less airy and subtle. Both are excellent 'phones. I bought these. They do leak a fair bit of sound into the room though.
