How does it Sound?

In musical terms, the sounds are definitely more nuanced and you may be able to enjoy stuff you thought you already had a sense of. At the beginning you may even feel like it affected your favorite music sounds to you before. In a good way. 

Clearity wise, you may literally hear the lyrics that you missed before which never managed to distinguish them in the same song.

How about the Build?

Solid and classic looking, with mostly metal and leather material wrap around. You will love the aluminum mesh open back design detail.

What should Concern?

The ear cups clamp force rating is kinda 6/10 after few songs played, but luckily the pads are breathable and comfort so is kinda give and take situation.
