    Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty decent for the money I bought these headphones from b&h a few weeks ago for recording purposes. a lot of reviews of this piece misrepresented these as soundproof headphones, and they are not. Other than that, sound is completely flat, and they are fantastic studio reference headphones. I've tested them with sub frequency bass and it plays it clearly. I've played peircing midi leads with it and it plays without distortion. Even the shrill highs from my blackface reverb amp cant hurt or distort the headphones. However, all this biting, loud sound may be making me deaf. Anyway, it comes with a couple of detachable cables. one is coiled and the other one isn't. Throw away the uncoiled cable because it's no good. It also comes with a couple of velvet headphone covers, but throw them away, you're never going to use them. The only thing I use regularly that came with the headphones is the 3.5mm to 1/4 inch adapter. Finally, I use these for other applications, like when I watch movies at work. These do alright, but it's highly conspicuous when you're wearing studio headphones trying to discretely watch House MD without anyone knowing.
