So today i got to test some really high-end headphones. They where hooked up to the epic amplifier you can see below, and i listened to some Jimi Hendrix and Paramore. The sound was very good and clear, although the bass was barely noticable. Sound leakage was extreme, but that’s to be expected with open heaphones. Otherwise, they look great and feel really light. They fit good on your head. But for the price of 1.499:95 US$ i’d rather go for some AKG’s.

Sound quality 8.5/10

Build quality 9.5/10

Overall 5/10 (because they are not worth the money)
