This review is from: Phiaton Moderna Series MS 400 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone
Pros: Very comfortable circumaural headphones.
Somewhat flashy (could be a con)
Carbon fiber earcups
Creates a nice soundstage, sounds very "open"
Highs are bright, if that's your thing...it's not mine
Cons: While comfortable the cloth covered grill that protects the drivers did push against my ears and caused some discomfort after listening for a while (more than 30 minutes).
Feel cheaply made, plenty of plastic.
Very weak bass response save for upper bass (70-80Hz+).
Other Thoughts: I really wanted to like these MS400's as they were very very comfortable but compared to the similarly priced V-MODA M80's the bass sucks and the highs are overly harsh. I did enjoy the spacious soundstage that they created and if it weren't for the lack of bass I'd have been tempted to keep them but even an EQ didn't help much. I hate to use EQ's to boost frequencies too much but I tried for giggles, I could EQ the highs down to where they were more tolerable though.READ FULL REVIEW
