Studio Monitor Headphones for iPod
SUPERB SOUND !!! - Just what I needed.
I finally found the set of headphones I have wanted for the past 50 out-of 58 years. I cam across this set as a fluke ordered these as not expecting the sounds I have not heard clearly ever from electronic equipment.
These are the 1st pair which have actually ASTOUND AND AMAZE ME which the true to life reproduction. EACH AND EVERY NOTE PRODUCED CLEANLY AND CRISPLY AS BEING IN A RECORDING SESSION.
I have had hearing tetanus for much of the last 40 years, and as I was a former t.v. and electronic technician hearing cleanly is a requirement to do your job correctly. I just wish these had been available in the 1980's for my repairs.
I can distinctly hear a guitar pick sliding over a wire-coiled string, or hear a loose sound board vibrating, Humans voices come across as individual and separate. It is very easy to tell a synthesized keyboard from a true piano.
The only problem I have found is the shape and depth of the ear-cups. They should be a bit deeper and have a slightly larger opening. When I were glasses, my ears are bent tightly to me head by the pressure of the cups, and causes a painful ache after a half hour.
Bearing that in mind, I still ordered a 2nd pair to keep for later use, after I have worn the 1st set out. I know I will not find another pair to meet THE WONDERFUL SOUNDS GENERATED BY THIS MODEL., as I currently own more than 20 pairs from Bose, Sennheiser and Sony. These have been THE LAST PAIR PURCHASED I WISH I HAD BOUGHT 1ST, and not wasted money on the others.

Not sure what they were thinking
I was hoping to get headphones that sounded like the MDR-7506 cans I love so much with the portability and design for on the go usage. On paper, I should have gotten even better sound. However, something went wrong somewhere. If I had paid retail for these, I would be very upset. Don't buy these new, get them refurbished @ $70. Much better deal.

I have them and are comfortable to wear. The cable doesnt tangle at all. The highs are nice. I hardly hear nice bass. The Warranty is short. At an agressive price at 150 plus sales tax, the short warranty tells me something will go wrong. Check them out. I bought an extended warranty via Best Buy. Good Luck. By far the best iPhone clicker. This is true. Its seamless. A good recessed headphone plug.
