Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Loving these headphones. They're very comfortable, the cups swivel, which is great for both storage and comfort/ease of use. This does come with the headphone amp, but still includes all the accessories the standalone headphones would (3 different cables and soft carrying pouch).
I've used the headphones with and without the amp, but not enough to really draw any conclusions about the amp itself. One of these days I need to do a side-by-side comparison and see what kind of difference it makes with the actual audio.. I did notice it holds a charge a pretty decent amount of time though, and it does also include the stacking kit, which was a nice surprise.
The headphones themselves sound great, of course. They're consistently ranked as the best headphones for under $200, which is what led me to get them in the first place. Definitely recommended.
Amazing listening headphones. What is nice is the resolution is sharp that things sound great but not so that there is zero forgiveness for tracks that are not perfectly EQ'd.
Works well with Spotify to get great sound but not bring the imperfections the surface. For those who love music and are okay with Spotify quality, get these. Those who have special players and setups to listen on, well these are great but not as good as one could get given better source quality.
To give a bit of a back ground, I sort of collect headphones (unintentionally) and have 5 cans total of similar quality, also have tried several others so I have a small comparison base. With that I think these favor base a bit, but not as much as AKG K92. As for comfort level, I have glasses and I am able to wear these 8 hours straight comfortably. Even in bed as a side sleeper these are "more" comfortable than any other I own. That said, watching TV or trying to sleep on your side with...
I will basically give the headphones the credit that other reviewers have complimented them with but they just were not for me. They didn't turn me on like I thought they would and no, I do not need Viagra. They just didn't have a nice warm sound and were very uncomfortable to wear. So much in fact I started looking at the aftermarket head pads and ear pads that are available to purchase. This was a turn off and I wasn't turned on to begin with.
I actually give the little FiiO amp more credit than the headphones. But if you are going to just be using the amp for your smartphone or pad it is kind of a hassle to hook it all up. A smartphone or pad would not be enough to adequately power the headphones on their own.
