Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Cans!"
Overall: I purchased these from zZounds several months ago with low expectations. I use these in my home production studio for vocal tracking and occasional mixing. After a long burn in period, it became apparent that these were the best headphones I've ever used and with thirty years in the business, I've heard them all. The best compliment I can pay them happened recently when I walked away from the console with the headphones on and didn't realize that I had them on. The sound was so natural, the soundstage just right and they are really comfortable during long sessions. I was transported into my own audio world. My studio includes Blue Bottle mics, Quantec Yardstick reverb and a Grace headphone amp, so this is as good as it gets. A truly great pair of cans!
Style of Music: Mostly classic rock.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Delicious sounding"
Overall: let me get down to it, first off I've tested these for about 5 days and not everything I've listened to has been music to my ears, but that's not because of these headphones.. the bass is smooth, mids are wide and accurate, the high sparkle but are laid back a tad bit... My eye opener to the lush and sweet sound came in a surprised way. As I logged onto Netflix and went to my favorite show 24, no headphone amp, just these cans and my laptop, I'm watching and bam, the sound, THE SOUND, was so nice and everything seemed to blend well together. I have the shure se535 and beyerdynamics 770 pro 80ohms headphones, and they are crap headphones, but compared to the 1540s they are light years apart, and I only head 1540s for about 5 days and I can tell you they have became the hardest headphones to leave home. Things I don't like about them, yes I do have one or two things LOL, one they are bigger than I thought they'd be, making wanting to take them out a real dilemma and they are not collapsible. Two, the wires supplied are extremely long, which only lead me to believe these are meant to stay at home... but boy-o-boy that is a tough decision to make when these things sound so good.
Style of Music: Jazz, movie scores, soul and r&B, hip hop, many many many more.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
