Top of The Price Range List
Pros: Very good detail throughout the range. The build quality is amongst the best. Comes with 2 sets of pads.
Cons: The highs can be too bright for some listeners.
Overall Review: At $600, this is a no-brainer. On sale, it's a steal! You will be hard pressed to find any headphones with this level of detail and excellent German build quality for the price. It's an open back design which does not isolate you from external noise, as does a closed back. Try listening with both sets of pads to see which is best for you. Both are comfortable but will change the sound signature. Overall, these headphones are comfortable and adjustable to fit most heads. Because of their robust build quality, they are not considered to be light weight..yet to me it's a welcome trade off. The ear cups are generous, not creating a hot spot on my ears. Let's be fair, these are considered to be a reference headphone, designed for detail replication of the music in a studio setting. Please understand the intended design before you buy. These are not airplane headphones...etc. If you get listening fatigue from bright highs, you may want to consider the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home. Beyerdynamic designs and builds quality headphones throughout their product range. Lastly, I will share what equipment I use to enjoy these headphones. Hiby - R5 DAP ($350) Schiit - Asgard Headphone Amp w/ True Multi Bit DAC ($450) I highly recommend the Schiit Amp with these headphones. You can always use your phone as a DAP and save money.
Not Worth the Price. Cheaply Made
Cons: Small and cheaply made. Can't return it. Bad seller.
Overall Review: It's small and cheaply made. I can't imagine this product lasting over the course of time. I'm sure you could make something better and cheaper with 5 gallon buckets. Horrible seller interactions.
I am totally impressed with Edifier as a company and their commitment to providing fantastic products at an affordable price. Everything is well packaged, no worries about shipping damage from normal handling. These computer speakers are way above anything you can find for the same price. I will buy again from them without hesitation.
