Good sound somewhat forward. Enjoyable but not over blown base. Highs seem full and extended. Will play with my smartphone but benefits from my headphone amp. Ear pads are comfortable but get hot. Would benefit frm velour or real leather earpads, Which are not available due to unusual mounting method using velcro. The mounting system is difficult as the phones swivel 360 degrees. They are not fully broken in yet but am enjoying them. They do have some sound leakage. Good sound stage eapecially for a closed back design. Worth the price.
I made an order at a discount event, but I didn't expect to receive in this condition. The sealing stickers on the item box which were meant to show the goods 'brand new'. they were already cut in half when I opened the package. And also the two bolts were missing on outside part of the headphones. At first listening, the sound was not quite impressive, but not bad,, since the cable was too long, I use other headphone cable from aliexpress, and the sound got much better, I use m560 as an open type, and m565c as closed type. I can't complain about the sound they reproduce. Good choice in general, but still some complains .
i ordered and i've used both 1060c and 565c. i burned-in both for 100 hours before listening. i intended to use the 565c for traveling and 1060c at home. 1060c outperforms in every way, such that, even though 1060c is quite bulky compared to 565c, i intend to return 565c and also travel with 1060c. to my ears 565c is much better than m560 headphone, which i assume that it replaces. a couple of months ago, i ordered m560 and promptly returned them. i could happily live with 565c. it compares favorably to my more expensive oppo pm3. oppo sparkles a smidge more at the higher frequencies and offers a tad more resolution and offesr better isolation and comfort. however, oppo's is falling apart after two years. i expect 565c will last much longer than two years and monoprice offers more responsive service. i wouldn't buy oppo again. i would buy 565c before oppo pm3 and change the pads. the 565c is a very good headphone for the money. one would be hard pressed to find something better at its price point. if i didn't have the 1060c to compare, i would keep the 565c. i just know that i will always reach for 1060c over 565c -for comfort and isolation alone and then, of course, the sound. if portability is a priority, then you want the 565c. it's very good. if portability is not important, no question, get the 1060c. the additional cost of 1060c is worth it.
