I rarely write reviews, and never give anything 5 stars, but these honestly deserve it. By far and without question, these are the best cost/quality headphones you can possibly buy. However, even were they priced at $250 or more like some less deserving headphones are, they'd still be worth it. I'm a bassist and use them when practicing or listening solo, but my main purpose in getting them was to use when playing live, and they have not disappointed at all. They are very comfortable and solid, and they actually fit on my big head which is a problem I've had with other headphones. It's also loaded with lots of cool little features. In terms of sound, they are very well balanced and have a solid, but not overpowering bass, and the highs come through very nice. I can hear very clearly and comfortably all the other musicians. Also if you didn't know, Snarky Puppy uses these same headphones, and anything good enough for them is good enough for me.
