I just bought these headphones and so far have only put about 24 hours into burn in, and i am impressed. They are super comfortable, even when listening for hours at a time, and MADE in GERMANY! You can really tell the difference in a quality built set of cans. They are warm and rich sounding. Very balanced! The highs are crisp, but very present. For the price?! Its a no-brainer, I already recommended it to 3 of my friends who were all impressed when i demo'd them some Pink Floyd - The Wall.

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.
In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.
Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.
On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.
Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.
Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.
Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.
Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.
Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:
Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.
Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.
Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.
Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.
Bluetooth means that the audio signal is transmitted from your device to the headphones via a Bluetooth connection.
Corded or Bluetooth means that the headphones can be used as corded headphones or as Bluetooth headphones. They have an input in one or both earcups for use as a corded headphone while they also have a built-in battery for use as Bluetooth wireless headphones.
Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.
The Jack Angle refers to the angle of the input jack on the headphone cable.
Straight Jack: Straight plug with no angle.
Angled Jack: Angled plug, usually a 90 degree angle.
Swivel Jack: A swivel jack is able to swivel between a straight plug and an angled plug.

Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".

These headphones are pretty solid. They are built well (of course, they are made in Germany. They know how to build Cars for sure, and now i guess they know how to build headphones too). They sound best when hooked up to a sufficient analog amp in my opinion, but great clarity all around. There isnt overwhelming Bass, and the mids and highs have a great presence when the bass is hitting. I really Dig these. My music teacher has a pair of German Meistro's, and i swear they are the same headphone, but he paid a hell of a lot more HAHAHAhaha.

For the price, you can't really go wrong with these headphones. Excellent for listening at home, these headphones work particularly well with acoustic, classical, and jazz. Nonetheless, they also push well in the bass making them well balanced and enjoyable (although probably disappointing if hip-hop and bass driven music is your thing).
With proper amplification and quality sound files, these are simply unbeatable at this price range. The construction could be sturdier, but they are among the lightest and most comfortable I have ever used. Over extended periods, you forget you are even wearing them.

Je recommande l'achat de ce produit. Je joue de la guitare et ces écouteurs sont à 100 ohms ils sonnent très bien avec le POD 2. De plus, les oreilles chauffent moin parce qu'ils sont ouvert. Il y a sûrement mieux mais pour le prix c'est très bien.
