Genuinely good1/3/2013
comfortable as a pillow
sounds better than any other headphone I’ve used
more money than I’d want to spend on headphones
Other Thoughts:
I didn’t know what to expect having never heard of this brand, but OMG this is super. I can’t imagine better, and yet they have more expensive models. I’m already saving up!
