Except for the cord (which i fixed), i love them! Peolpe are complaining they are tight, but the k412 is WAY worse, not a problem. They isolate very well and the sound is also very acceptable

Cool. At first I had a few problems with them being tight, but they got comfortable over time (no, I haven't tried bending the headband).

The sound will get better after 100+ hours (even more after 150+ hours). The bass will settle down a bit (although they will never quit being bassy), mids will come forward a little and highs will get more detailed. Works nice for rock (although the MS-1s perform much better with fast paced music). But they're great closed cans at their price.

Oooh, didn't know you had one of those as well. The difference is almost incredible, compared to inferior non-silver, non-hand-wound cables, eh?

No difference at all from my cheapo interconnects, but they're beautiful, aren't they?

By the way, have you seen this? Download the issue no. 26 and have some good laughs. Don't show it to H'Fiers, though... they would go mad.

You're welcome!! Don't drink coffee if you're reading The Audio Critic, especially the part that talks about products to make CDs sound better (to quote them, make ones more "one-ish" and zeroes more "zero-ish").

Cowon D2 > Snake Oil Qables > Meier Corda Move > AKG K81 DJ.

Loads of bass -- sometimes too much of it --, with great impact. Not audiophile grade headphones (whatever that means), but they're damn fun to listen to!

The cable size doesn't bother me too much, but I have a longer cable lying around just in case.

Umm, I see. Yeah, a shorter cable would be nice, but on the other hand I usually can walk away from the player to answer the phone or to adjust the AC in the bedroom. The MS-1 cable is worse, IMO, because it's heavy and really gets in the way sometimes.
