What did you use these headphones with?

I don't use stand-alone amplifiers. The sources are normally an iPhone 6 or a Macbook.

 

Design, Build & Comfort

Design: Less of a sound equipment and more of a fashion statement. Although they have an unconventional design, the overall package is quite discrete. The hexagonal cans with the Matt Black colour gives them a look straight out of a sci-fi movie. Coupled with the awesome HardCase exoskeleton case and you get a complete package.

Build: All metal build with a really flexible headband. Feels solid - something that could last a lifetime. No wonder these guys give 2 years warranty - You are never gonna need it.

Comfort - They are quite light in weight. But I won't say they can be used for a prolonged time primarily because the clamping force is a bit on the higher side. But that might loosen after a few days. The ear cups are very comfortable and the quality of the cushion used is absolutely brilliant - Soft and just about the right size. Also I MUST point this out; I have a really huge head but the headphones fit just fine without any issue.

 

 

 

Sound & Performance

I went for these primarily for my EDM needs - Electronic, Trance, Dubstep and the lot. And I must say it hasn't disappointed me one bit. The bass is tight and heavy. But it doesn't drown the other aspects of the music. A bit of Chasing Cars from Sound Patrol and Peace of Mind from Above and Beyond - clearly proves the point that it caters to all aspects of music lovers. I would still suggest these specifically for EDM - I doubt you can get a better set of cans at this price range.

Verdict

The product is absolutely value-for-money. As I pointed out before - At this price-point (and probably a few levels above) it's really hard to beat these sets of cans. And after the order was placed, the Headphone Zone people were quick to process it and I got it within 5 days flat.
A satisfying experience overall.
