The interior materials of the ear cups are of thick, quality memory foam which are soft with just the right level of firmness. On the surface is a perforated fabric material which is smooth on the skin and helps in breathability, so heat build-up around the ears should not be an issue. See More
These headphones may look bulky, but are actually pretty light at around 280g. Aircraft grade aluminum is used on the yokes, while the ear cups have carbon fiber inlays, both of which are light yet sturdy materials. The low weight makes these relatively easy to wear. See More
The cable attaches to the ear cups via an MMCX connection, with magnets surrounding the connectors. The connection is quite secure, yet can be disconnected with some force. This reduces the chances of damaging the cable or the headphones should the cable be accidentally yanked. See More
The accessories that are included are not abundant, but really add a lot of value. There is an extra pair of the high quality ear pads which is a rare inclusion for high end headphones, along with an extra cable. Also, there is a case with a hard plastic shell; a step up from the usual soft case that is included with most headphones within the price bracket. See More
These headphones offer great clarity, so it should be very easy for you to appreciate the music. There is a little extra energy to the highs which gives the airiness and detail but without becoming harsh. This is balanced by slight elevations to the bass for extra oomph yet the low end is still controlled. These are neutral enough for monitoring or recording use, yet can still be a fun listen.

With these on, you will only hear very little of the noise around you. The large and thick ear cups go over the ear and seal really well, and the closed ear cups are able to drastically minimize noise that may bleed in with your music. These can be used for tracking music in the studio, listening to mixes for errors, or for music listening outdoors. See More
Its closed back design along with the fairly thick, leather-surfaced earpads are very effective at keeping the music in and the ambient noise out. This is very useful in tracking situations, and will also help you focus on the audio even when in a busy, noisy place. See More
The use of metal and quality plastics on the headphone construction, as well as the magnets in the drivers contribute to a hefty weight. While this is not a problem to wear for short periods, you may feel some head or neck strain when using the headphones for hours. This also makes the headphones an extra challenge to bring on the go.
