These are open headphones that weigh a lot so don't even think of using them as portables, and they leak sound like no other (the whole earcup is basically an open mesh). nevermind the fact that it comes with a 13 foot OFC low impedance heavy duty cable with 1/4" connector.
These are somewhat warm sounding headphones, a tad polite in the treble, but very clear sound,, very tight bass, still has some punch. A little bit light in sub-bass. most importantly, the bass doesn't leak into the mids. Nice expansive soundstage.
Coming from my Sony 1000X that I was using the day before, it felt like somebody removed the cottonballs from my ears.
I think these will replace my HD600. Everything those did, these do better. My NAD HP50 are a lot more thicker sounding, but not as clear and detailed.
I've been wearing them for hours and they are amongst the most comfortable headphones I've used. They weigh a ton, but they don't feel it once you have them on your head
