                    We used these headphones in the studio recently and they really are great! I'm a drummer so I need cans that isolate well and provide plenty of high AND low end. These headphones definitely provided just that. They have a very flat response as well which is great if you want to hear how your music actually sounds. I loved the swivel feature as well as I sometimes like just click in one ear and my other ear exposed.
