Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: I'd rather listen to these then my HD558's
Cons: Remote will not work through the Bithead amp!
Sound wise I was pretty amazed by the bass it could carry & the volume load it handled. It is a bit bright at times but not to the point getting too fatiguing. I've read reviews that the fit is something hard to get used to. I guess I just got lucky or have those set of ears that accommodate this set of headphones because I used the set that was already stock on them. Fit perfectly. I even tried the others & they didn't fit as nicely as the medium sized cushions.
