Overall: I love these cans for their mids. There are on the lively side, but the placement and separation is rock solid. Wonderful for mixing voice, guitar, etc. Great transient response. These would be the perfect choice, except... the bass is weak. What can I say? After a long burn-in (150 hours), the bass is better, but still weak. On the stereo, I can simply click it up one notch, and am happy. But that's not an option when recording! Too bad. I still use these for tough set-ups where the mids need to be perfect, but I need to use another set for checking the bass... PS: They very comfortable with good isolation.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: A flat, no nonsense, highly accurate response that has enhanced my mixdowns exponentially. That KNS 8400's have allowed me to accurately place sounds within the sonic field which has given my tracks that "full" sound they've been lacking. They're essentially KRK monitors for the ears, and that's a good thing. If you produce, you need these headphones. For the price range, they can't be touched. Make sure you give them a proper amount of burn-in (about 80 or so hours) to really enhance the fidelity. Feature: Pretty simple features. However, the selling point is the memory foam on the headband and ears. I can wear these babies for hours and not feel a bit of discomfort. And if by chance they ever wear down, I can simply by replacement cushions. How sweet is that? Ease of Use: They're headphones. If you require explanation then perhaps you should choose another field of experience. Quality: Great build, great feel. The cord is a tad long for my taste, but perhaps this was done in order to accommodate those who need the length to reach a vocal booth or performer. Again, the memory foam is where it's at. Value: For the money, you simply can't afford to NOT have these headphones. And they come with a chic faux leather bag. Sweet. Manufacturer Support: This is a KRK product and, like all their products I've purchased, I have to yet contact them with a problem. The Wow Factor: Top notch sound response comparable to more expensive headphones and the ingenious addition of memory foam makes the sex appeal a +10. Overall: I will not buy another set of headphones. I've got KRK monitors & now the headphones and have yet to regret the purchase. In fact, when my associates come to my studio they typically go home and sell their current monitoring setup in order to purchase KRK products. Yes, they're that good.
