      Very helpful




      This is rather subjective and opinionated, so I am not going to go into each different level of sound, saying how the 'highs are delicious', or 'the bass is as smooth as a baby's bottom', some people don't care, and others don't understand.

      When they are correctly amped, however, these are among the best things that I have listened to for home usage, especially in a quiet environment, where background noise isn't much of an issue, or people are not going to get upset at the background leakage. Due to their open design, films and wide spaced music sound very natural, and if you like EQing your music, then these will likely sound even better. The only downside to them for me was the extreme highs, I am rather sensitive to higher pitches, so I had to amp these down, and occasionally got headaches as a result if I was not careful, so for anyone else who is of a similar disposition and finds higher pitches a problem, you might want to take that into account before you cast your judgement on them.

      Second to none. My friend aptly summed them up: 'They feel like clouds on your ears.' Even after two years of heavy use (albeit in a relatively well ventilated environment) I didn't find the need to replace the velour pads, though if you do want to, it is a simple operation. Some may find the clamping force a bit high, but I am sure that some DIY fixes will resolve this.

      Very good on the whole, only the things that needed to be metal were metal; the headband and the cup holders, whilst the outer housing of the earcups was made from a very high quality and hard wearing plastic. I occasionally threw these in my bag when I went travelling, and in this case, I never found an issue after I pulled them out of my bag at the other end. The coiled wire is very durable, and the anti strain parts at both ends of the wire are very well made and are not going to give out unless you are really trying.

      There are only a few of these, and then again, they are very situational:

      1. They are open, so don't go around expecting to use these in noisy environments without pumping obscene amounts of volume through them. Also, they will leak heavily out the sides, so people in close proximity to you might not be so grateful.

      2. Heavy coiled cable, so if you are running these under a desk as I am, or over a long distance, you might want to stretch the cable a bit before using them, as the spring and weight of it can translate into your left earcup if you are not careful, something that a lot of people might not be too impressed with.

      Open ear tudio headphones, with great sound quality and clarity throughout all frequencies

      These open ear studio headphones feature a spring steel headband, single sided cable, soft head pad, and a gold plated stereo mini jack, and come with a quarter inch stereo jack adapter as well.
      They contain movable dynamic transducers which provide the ideal positioning for 100% accurate sound monitoring.
      The frequency response range of these headphones is 5Hz all the way up to 35kHz, so no sounds will go unnoticed by the human ear.
      The headphones provide the best in accuracy and clarity, throughout all frequencies, from low bass sounds, up to high treble sounds, there is no variance in sound quality and clarity.
      They are also pretty good value for money at around £85 in most shops and online, and are also fairly lightweight considering all that's going on inside them (250g without cable).
      The cable is a coil cable, which means that it doesn't get caught on things as easily as regular cables, thus saving you money on knocking things over!!!
