These puppies really give the Audeze LCD3 a run for their money as far as weight is concerned. You can forget about bobbing your head with these on, your neck just might snap, or worse your whole head is libel to fall off. Haha. Learn more: Audeze LCD3 Review.
So comfort is pretty decent, but you’ll know these are on your head at all times and you will be making adjustments from time to time. They’re just incredibly bulky and don’t really work as an on the go portable.
I realize that they’re meant for the studio, but even then you’re going to be scratching your head wondering why in God’s name are these so heavy? Normally a studio headphone doesn’t have to be, as it’s not constantly in transit.
Anywho, I digress.
Build is probably the best aspect here. As alluded to above, these aren’t going to break. They don’t really fold or collapse in anyway, but the aluminum and metal construction leaves no doubt that they’re going to last. A numbah one, for build!
The ear-pads are a protein leather, and they don’t seem to be prone to cracking or peeling which is a plus. The headband adjustment is also solid.
I personally didn’t like it. They come across as artificial sounding, but keep in mind that I’ve had experience with some really high end headphones. To the average listener, these will probably sound pretty good, and are meant for bass heavier genres.
