Alright, for those of you all who are wondering if you should just splurge the extra little bit take the 371's instead, or heck, even the wireless ones, DON'T. This has the more appealing sound signature of the two, even if it feels cheaper than the other one. that does in no way mean that this feels cheap by itself though, it has a solid construction and works well. It's also much better than the wireless one, simply because its lighter. if you want to spend 10k on some audio gear then go ahead and get a good set of Chi-Fi IEM's instead, or take these and a set of Koss-kph30i's, which are my default recommendation for cheap headphones. And please, for the love of all things holy, do not take the audio technica's. They're over recommended piles of hot garbage, yes I said that and you should too.
Here's some advice I'd give if you just bought these headphones,
a) Burn-in: My set sounded just like a normal set of random headphones and didn't really open up until it had about 30 hours of burn-in, and it didn't't really sounds as advertised by the harman curve until it actually had 50 hours of burn in. Now though, it sounds much better.
b) The pads: The pads themselves are great, but something to be wary of is the face that the actual padding underneath the photo-leatherish texture (it has leather texturing, even if it doesn't feel like it) isn't thick enough to prevent it from entirely touching the tips of your ears (its an annoying caveat until you get used to it), but a hack that I used that worked superbly with this was that I had an old set of earpads lying about from when I had swapped my Bose QC-35's, since the cloth around those pads began to come off and it left the green foam within it very exposed. I took out the foam from the QC's, simply because the pad shape is the exact same as this, its just that those pads are angled, while this has very little in the form of side to side angling. so what you can do is this, since the pads on this are swappable, by virtue of the way AKG created the pads, you can expose the foam on purpose of these pads, by simply pulling the pad covers out from behind the metal plate, without actually destroying the pads. its easy enough to put back as well, just takes like 30 seconds. when you have the foam exposed, simply lie the green foam from the QC on top of it and then cover it back up with the cloth, with 2 pieces of foam per pad now. I know this changed my sounds signature by a fair bit, but I think I prefer the sound now than what I had earlier.
Sound: Great if you burn it in and do the pad swap I recommended, still good with the normal pad swap and after a burn in, but I prefer the pad swapped sound signature.
Everything in the box: Its 5000 rupees, that's incredible, they give you an actually well built headphone, 2 cables (2!!!) one long one and a short one, you get a screw on 3.5mm to quarter inch adapter and you also get a carry on bag (which is much better than I expected, although I haven't found much use for it considering I just leave these out on a headphone stand to listen to from time to time.)
Headband: Its silicon and has this strange smooth texture that feels great. you can kind of feel the wire passing through it if you press the silicon hard enough and the silicon feels much thinner when you actually press it, but on wearing the headphone you realize that the silicon that they added, as well as the air cushioning under it is just right so keep the weight distributed evenly, taking away much of the force around your ears while still letting them clamp well, (I'd say I have fairly large ears and a slightly larger than normal sized head.)
Pad Size: While not as deep as I would prefer, given that my ears barely touch the tip of the plate that covers the driver, the pads themselves are more than adequate. They happen to be a solid 3 and a half knuckles on my hand, which is larger than anyone I know, which means that for most people, it'll be at least a loose four knuckle
It has only one con per se, and that's only because it was designed too well, the hinge mechanism around the ear cups, which make it swivel are of that cool, semi-gimmicky style of freely movable and a 360 degree hinge, which admittedly works great on certain headphones, especially for small adjustments, but those headphones all have something that this one doesn't: Angled Pads! This headphone does not happen to have any angled pads, thereby making this over-engineered free floating hinge not enough to actually angle the ear cups so the headphone sits with the drivers positioned towards my ears. This does not take away from comfort though, still very comfortable after your ears adjust a little.
So in conclusion, I can only say that you should give this a shot, great pruduct at an amazing price and completely worth all the money you pay for it. Can't think of any other headphone that really competes with it at this price range other than the Koss kph-30i's, which sound beyond incredible for all their terrible build quality, looking like a cheap set of headphones from a library in the 1980's.
