Excellent price to performance ratio. 32 ohms make it more sensitive to lower sound outputs of cell phones so no need for DAC amplifier. The open back allows me to hear ambient room noises such as phone or doorbell ringing.
Everything is clear and fairly detailed. The sub-bass extension is impressive, if a bit overstated. Needs a bit of amplification to bring out all the detail. Fairly wide soundstage, though nothing exceeding a typical pair of open-back headphones. Construction and materials seem very high-quality, though my unit came with a defective cable and a small crack in the wood veneer on oneof the earcups. Luckily, Monoprice replaced the cable for free, despite my having purchased an open-box unit. Overall, for the $150 I spent, definitely a good purchase in my book.
I've had these for a week. I really enjoy listening to them. Lots of detail. Nice punchy sound. Looks could be improved, but not a big deal when listening at home. I bought the open box pair, came looking brand new.
