Super "bang-for-the buck"
June 4, 2018
This is an initial out-of-the box review:
First off, what these headphones are. (40+ years of pro audio experience here).
These are an excellent Home Studio/Personal listening headphones. DJ quality? Well if your talking a weekend warrior occasional party DJ, then yeah. Professional/Commercial DJ use that subjects them to a lot of physical punishment, then absolutely not! Lets get real, they're $30.00 headphones.
I give a positive 5 star for the following reasons: Sound quality to price point. I am hard pressed to tell any "real notable difference" between my high dollar studio grade Sennheiser or Bose headphone. These are also my first 50mm driver phones too. Here is my evaluated OPINION. Remember, all you really get on these reviews are just that, opinion.........
Test 1. THX Sound System Check. Very accurate reproduction.
Test 2. Bose Studio Demo CD. Very Good.
1. Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30-Richard Strauss; Excellent & Accurate.
2.Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Just like I was there. Nice crisp highs and great low frequency.
3. AC/DC, Thunderstruck & Shoot to Thrill; Oh Yeah.....
4. ABBA Yep, sounds great.
5. Paranoid both GFR and BS versions, No disappointments here either.
6. Lynyrd Skynyrd- Simple Man & Free Bird - Lets face it, it would take an Awfull headphone to ruin these. That said, Front row experience.
7. IRON BUTTERFLY IN- A-GADDA-DA-VIDA, Rock ON!!
8. Yanni Acropolis CD. Very Pleased here too.
Here's what these headphones Are Not! Thy are not Bass Heavy like some reviewers have stated. What they're doing is actually reproducing more accurate Bass that what smaller driver headphones are unable to reproduce. I would classify them as "Bass Accurate", not heavy. They are also not "skull crushers" as some have noted. I have been wearing them 5+ hours straight while reviewing
I evaluated these both barefoot and also using a Neoteck NTK059 headphone amplifer. The amp did add a real positive dimension to the overall experience, however, I am sure all except the most demanding audiophiles will be very pleased with these just as they are. I just bought a second pair.
