Very good sounding headphones for electronic drums



Excellent, comfortable headphones


For CD's, sound is excellent but could use deeper bass response. Outstanding sound quality for playing my Alesis Nitro Mesh drum kit!

Pricey but worth it


It is what it is. Meant for more than just music at work. Great head phones.




Very distinct In its sound reproduction


I use mainly for recording guitar acoustic and electric and some listening To music. Seems to handle highs and lows very good I would say these are very good sounding and professional looking head phones and the price was right. Thanks Sam Ash!

Easy for Transport


These are the best headphone that I have bought for editing. They are easy to transport to and from work since the wire discounts which is really helpful. Great audio as well. I would recommend this product to all my friends.





These headphones are wonderful! Reduce external sound, make the sound as I am compiling music sound clear! Comfortable on the head and ears! Perfect!




Best sounding headphones I have ever heard.


I bought these at Sam Ash. Paid pretty much "list" price. WORTH EVERY PENNY. If you want "look at me I am listening to music" headphones, these are not for you. But if you want the best sound under $300 (that I have experienced) these are your best bet. I am no professional audio engineer, but I have a great ear and these are very pleasing to my ear.

I would buy these again.


Great product! Great customer service, quick shipping.

Awesome Headphones


I took the risk and bought this headphone with the fear of me wasting my money. I've had a few headphones in the past and up to this day I don't have any of them. So far this headphone is the best that I've came across. Clear sound and it is also very comfortable. This headphone was prepared for every task that I threw at it. From just listening and enjoying some music to mixing in my home studio. I say get it. Its worth the money.
