Great headphones at a fair price
Sound
These sound fantastic and are an excellent choice for mixing. Not particularly boosted in any areas that I can hear. I also picked up a Focusrite Vrm box with these headphones to use for referencing. So far so good. I think its and excellent pairing and my mixes are translating to my monitors and consumer stereos very well.
Features
They come with an extra cord and a nice carrying case, big plus in my book.
Quality
Very nice quality, there are alot of moving parts though and I would worry if others used these. I would not give these to the talent in a tracking situation.
Value
These seem priced appropriately for the quality and sound. Yes cheaper would be great but I think if you spend a week with these you would be hard pressed to find any faults.
Manufacturer Support
Ive never had a problem with a shure product.
The Wow Factor
Headphones arent a wow kind of purchase to most folks. But as wow as they could be these certainly are.
