I wanted these to be amazing. I wanted these to warrant spending $200. I really really did. Sadly, that didn't happen (for me).
To start I think it's worth it to say that my daily driver is the ATH-M40X (I think that might be true for a good number of you OR you are deciding between the 40X or 60X) and so I went into these headphones with that kind of ear.
Let's start with the overall listening experience. I think this is what these headphones do really well and is ARGUABLY the most important part of headphones. I really did thoroughly enjoy listening to music with these. A nice warm sound that I would agree as feeling natural. Now to be clear, that does not mean neutral. They are natural. To describe the listening experience in three words, I'd say warm, natural, and airy. The sound stage is pretty good, especially for closed back, but by no means is it WIDE. I'd say a bit wider than the 40Xs. Where these really shine is in the imaging and it's kind of hard to describe. The sounds filled my head in a way I hadn't really experienced. It was really easy to feel like I wasn't wearing headphones (in part because of comfort but more on that later). The sounds effortlessly exist in my head and it feels like a space. I love how these sound for music. Videos, shows, and movies not as much. Whether it's the nature of how these mediums are mixed or mastered or compression I don't know but what was nice natural warmth for music becomes muddy for videos/dialogue. Where I have to deduct a star here is in its label. I would not classify these as studio monitors, for reasons listed above but in short, due to the mid to low-mid warmth. The fact is these change how songs sound, but in a way that is really enjoyable to listen to but would drive me mad if I needed to actual monitor a mix.
How about build and comfort. I like the look of these headphones quite a bit but the design is questionable and is responsible for one of the star losses. I don't think it's acceptable for "portable" $200 cans to not be fold-able or even able to swivel to lay flat. While these are small and light, they aren't small enough to fit into any bag for going on the move. So it really loses the portable aspect to me. However, where these are really good is in the comfort department. Super light and those pads though. Easily the most comfortable on ear headphones you could hope to get. They almost don't even feel like on ear.
------ tl;dr ------- These are (PROBABLY) the best on ears you can fin, to the point where these are almost a classification all their own. However, while the things these do well they do REALLY well, they are not worth the price tag for a few reasons.
Pros - Warm and natural sound that make listening to music a joy. - Imaging is insanely good, placing you in a SPACE - Very comfortable thanks to it being so light and the pads acting like ear pillows.
Cons - Are not as portable as they are seen to be. Limited by no type of folding. - Listening to videos sounds off. - Are not monitors as proposed.
If these were even $150 I'd have less of a hard time justifying the purchase but $200 is just a bit of a stretch to me, especially with its design quirks. If these are ever in the $120-150 range I'd heavily reconsider getting these again.
Just received these today. Listening to them for a while. I was eager to hear what all the hoopla was about. I'm not an audiophile (never sure what that means, but strictly speaking, I am not). I would love to say that my initial impression of these phones was positive but, at least at this point I can't say that it's so. Crowded, busy, almost congested sounding at times. Exciting sound and presence (perhaps too present). They sound confining, but I am more used to open back phones. Most importantly, as far as I'm concerned, they are not relaxing to listen to. They are easy to drive, and at normal listening volume, they leave me on edge. I can't just lay back and listen. The sound is (too?) penetrating for me. They could make me hyperactive. Could be older ears, but I have absolutely no problem with my Grado 325e or the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro for instance at a normal listening volume.
I can see why some may like these. Again, these phones do put out a lot of sound. They are exciting and lively. They are comfortable to wear, light and not oppressing to the ears. They look nice. I am going to slug it out a bit more with these, and give them a fair hearing. So far, though, there has not been a great deal of rapport established between my brain, ears, and the headphones. I will report back with some more testing time if my initial impressions should change for the better.
Update 8/10/18: Listened to a variety of music with these. I'm using a 2015 Mac Book Pro, Audirvana Plus, iFi iDSD Nano Bl with some MQA tracks, and the iFi iPurifiier 3. The phrase "The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts" comes to mind. That's not the case of these phones. Here, the individual elements are stunning. At the same time, there's a sense that these elements just don't mesh well together at least for me. The sum of the parts is greater than the whole. And, they're still edgy. I don't mean in any way to bash these phones. In a way they are stunning, and comfortable to wear. I'm just more at home with my Beyer DT990 Pros. Don't want to dampen anyone's enthusiasm about these. I'm just presenting the long and short of it as I hear it. YMMV. Best wishes.
Update 8-23-18: Happily ended up with some Campfire Comet IEMs instead. :)
I'd rather listen to my $12 Sony earbuds (MDREX15AP) than these. if you are looking for sound quality avoid these. if you are looking for style these are a nice choice. Don't be fooled by the name of these headphones, they don't belong in the "M" line these are fashion cans for sure. I wrote this after using them for a while and hearing just how muffled everything sounds with them. These are not monitoring headphones.
Below is the review i wrote when i first got them and I was still trying to justify my purchase.
Let me start off by saying I really like these headphones. They probably would have gotten a 5 star rating if I hadn't spoiled by a cheaper alternative from the same company. That of course being the M40X. As a disclaimer though, the M40x I have are modified with Brainwavz HM5 pads.
Style: I think these look great and I certainly look less dopey with these compared to my M40x with those huge pads. The look is the one thing you can get a good sense of from the pictures so my opinion doesn't matter much.
Comfort: These are very comfortable headphones despite the fact that they are on-ear rather than over-ear. The pads a noticeable step up from the ones that come of the M40x/M50x. I think the only problem is that they make my ears hot almost immediately.
Portability: They are much lighter and smaller than the M40x so they are easier to drape around the neck when not in use. The problem comes when you try to store them in a bag or any where that isn't a headphone stand. Unlike the M40x and M50x these don't fold at all, which is a serious downfall especially when you look at competitive products in this price range like the V-moda xs. You cant even store them flat (with the pads down on a flat surface).
Sound: The soundstage is so much narrower than MY M40x. I say this just to remind you that I have non-stock pads on the M40x and I never want to go back. The bass is a lot more present than the M40x; I can't compare to the M50x because I haven't heard those in so long. This doesn't mean the bass is overpowering though. It feels tight and stays in its place. I actually really like the added low-end and it might be what makes me keep these for use with hip-hop and funky bass guitar tracks. The mids stand out above most other frequencies. I only mean that in volume though. In my opinion I felt like vocals weren't as clear as I was used to with my M40x despite them being louder. The mids kinda crowd out other frequencies and I don't like that. Combined with the limited soundstage, this makes me not too hot about these headphones. The highs could be a bit sharper. The horns from songs like September by Earth, Wind and Fire, and Touch the Sky by Kayne West aren't as sharp as I remember.
Final Verdict: You can have much better sound for a lot less if you are willing to sacrifice style and size.
