Coming from a KRK KNS 6400 for over eight years, it was time for some new headphones. Wasn't sure whether to pick this one or the Sony MDR 7506. The reviews on comfort and durability made me choose BeyerDynamic.
The sound is amazingly clear, but not (too) hyped in the highs. Overall tight punchiness. The headphones sit very comfortably on the head. Overall I'm glad with this choice.
A few minor things that could be improved I think are:
- the cable is not of the twist and click type. Can't be easily replaced like my previous KRK KNS 6400.
- the headphones come with a bag, but oh man is that little bag a shameful thing.. It's very thin, providing minimal protection and it came folded in 4, so it has these ugly folds. On top of that, there is huge plastic window with a card behind to write your name on. This reminds me of my swimming bag back in primary school.
- These headphones are big! They're not very mobile, and the big size makes it a tiny bit uncomfortable to rest the headphones on your shoulders.
