Other Thoughts: Overall, these are by far the best headphones I've had, in-ear or over-ear. I recently started looking to get new over-ear phones and tried out a lot to try to find sound quality that match these. I have tried everything from beats to bose and have yet to find ANY that give the same balance and quality of sound these do.
I'm picky in the kind of music I like. It ends up being kind of dubstep with a lot of interesting high rifts. Try looking up "Hope" - Tobu, "5upernova" - Archie, or "Waking up" - NCS and you'll get an idea. Many of these songs I've found don't sound very good with lower quality headphones... or even many high quality ones. The issue I have with most high quality headphones is they make a huge trade. Clear highs result in no base. Strong base results in drowning out the other sounds. Anything I've found with both results in somewhat muddled sound. With the soul (lol, pun) exception of these. These headphones have set a standard in sound quality that I have found no equal to unless you want to drown in base or float on highs (pun? lol). Perfect sound, and perfect balance.
However, I will NEVER wear these when I go on a run or go to the gym. The comfort in wearing them is lost completely and they practically fall out of your ear every 30 seconds. The weight isn't noticeable if you're just walking or sitting, but the moment you start to work up a sweat they refuse to sit comfortably. So if you're looking for solid headphones to wear while you workout, these are not the headphones for you.
