They are tuned flat for incredibly accurate sound monitoring across the entire frequency range, while circumaural design contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. Plus, 90° swiveling earcups make for easy, one-ear monitoring, and they’re collapsible for space-saving portability. Product page.

“I am by no means an audiophile, but these headphones are beyond anything I’ve ever listened to, which isn’t saying much. The big difference between this pair of headphones and others that I’ve owned is the clarity across the full range of audio. With other headphones/earbuds the bass might sound nice, but the highs and mids sound kind of muffled. With these the bass is deep, and the highs are crisp. Would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their music listening experience,” said one reviewer on Amazon. More information.
