I have recently written a few reviews for the things I have in my office and although these are products I use everyday I wouldn't say I have a huge passion for them. These headphones on the other hand... OMG! I actually received these as a gift from my partner at christmas, my first reaction was blowing the roof off in shock, (i knew how much a pair of these cost) despite never using a pair I was aware that they have an awesome reputation, but I would never have considered forking out almost a hundred quid for headphones... I usually spend around £25. Anyway my music habits are very much like may other 20 somthing year olds, I have my headphones in whenever I am not doing anything thing that requires me to take them out! I often sit in my office at work with music playing in the background through the speakers of my pc or have the radio playing (I am one of those strange people who cannot concentrate in silence, I need a bit of background noise). So after blowing the roof off and gettting at the mrs for spending a fortune on something I could get for £20, we come to a compromise.... I keep them and shut up (you have to love the compromise). So they stayed in their box over Christmas, although if I had have known how much background / external noise they actually cancelled out, I think they would have remained in my ear the entire festive period, it would have saved me a few headaches from my hyperactive toddlers.
So the first time I actually used these would have been a couple of days after Christmas, I took the Tube to work (I was a little worried about my alcohol consumption from the night before... better safe than sorry) now I am not a fan of the Tube, busy, noisy place but with these things in my ears, I was in heaven, they pretty much cancel out most of the external noise and I don't mean when you have your music cranked up to ridiculous volumes either, I played the music through my mobile (just a mid range blackberry) and I had the volume at about half way when I first put them in... when I pressed play I think my eardrums nearly exploded... The quality and level of sound is absolutely incredible! I turned it down to about a quater and comfortably listened to my music, minus the hustle and bustle of central london during rush hour!
I kept the headphones in for much of my day, rather than play my music through speakers I figured I would just keep them in, about half an hour into my work day, I look up to a member of my team, stood infront of my desk trying to get my attention and pointing at the phone, I hadn't heard her shout me or the phone ring... Marvellous, I have finally found a way to hide from the awful sound the phones in our office make!
So I guess for me these headphones are without a doubt the only headphones to buy. You have incredible quality, you actually hear little bits in songs that you have never heard before, you have the unbelievable noise cancellation, however this is also a negative or a slight concern for me, I think this could be a little dangerous if you have them in when walking the streets of somewhere busy, they block out the sound of traffic etc and you may run the risk of walking innto the road and not hear the speeding bus beep its horn, might be a wise idea to walk around with just one in!
Anyway thats my two cents on these, I would recommend them to absolutely anyone who listens to music regularly, whether it be during your commute, at work (beware of the noise cancellation though if you work somewhere a little dangerous like a building site) and finally just for relaxing, I am sat at this moment writing the review with them in, and about 6 feet away are my toddlers fighting over the television remote and I cant hear a word.... HEAVEN!!! Well done Dr Dre... and THANK YOU!
Summary: You need to buy a pair of these.... WHAT EVER IT TAKES!
