awesome value for the money. SUPER COMFY... sounds crisp and true, however i found the low end to be lacking about 10-20%. I compared these head to head in the studio against several other brands listening to both mastered and unmastered premixes.. no matter what i listened to the bass was toned down on these. It may however be from the open back design meaning less resonant bass. Models I compared these to: AKG k240, Akai M50x, Audio Technica 20x.... Aside from that, for $33 these are an awesome value for vocalist monitors and sound production and long term use.. however I wouldnt use for premixes.
