Hard to have to wait until Black Friday to get a good deal on these, but they are worth it!

Really damn amazing pair of cans. I really love them, and hope that the HD 599s get a price drop to where these are now so more people can listen to a slightly better version of these.

First things first, holy cow these headphones are quality! For the price, there are few options that can even compete with these cans. It is also my first open-backed headphone and I must say that the sound is incredibly spacious and clear, with nothing being over-accentuated. The bass is tight and does pack some punch after playing around with the equalizer. Even when listening at extreme volumes, I did not experience any listening fatigue. Vocals, guitars, strings, synthesizers, etc all come in very clear to deliver an immersive and enjoyable experience. They work extremely well in games too with positional audio being accurate and distinct, allowing advantages in fps titles.
I was lucky enough to purchase them at a heavy discount on Amazon which then drove me to purchase a sound card for my PC to go with it. These headphones are very easy to drive and can even be used with your smartphone. They are light and comfortable, to which I have worn them for hours on end and haven't noticed any irritation on my ears. The only negative aspect about these headphones is that they do not fold up, nor do they come with a headphone case so it is not convenient to take with you on the go. Then again, they are open-backed so listening to them in public would be a bit disruptive since they leak sound. This con really doesn't pertain to me since I solely use them at home with my desktop computer and keyboard.
It is also worth mentioning that these came with a 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter so that I could either use the headphones with my Digital Keyboard or my computer/smartphone. It also included two cables, one long and one short.

I regrettably overpaid quite a bit for these as they were "discontinued" only to be replaced by a version with improved build quality, which these are lacking a little. For gaming there aren't many headphones that can even compete and even fewer that outshine these, especially for the money. For music they're fine, they ruined all cheaper headphones for me but they still don't compare to enthusiast options.

Quality of this headset is amazing. Best headset for the price in my honest opinion. My only problem is my ears hurt after a while
6 hours. It could just be my ears though.
