What customers say about "Key Specs"
beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro (459046) Studio Headphones - 80 Ohm
  • The sound is pretty detailed with excellent bass response and the soundstage is very good for closed back headphones!
  • The sound quality is incredible. Clear high frequency and very deep bass extension, real nice for causal listening as well as studio works.
  • It's sounds really great. Frequencies comes clear. Lows, mids and highs are nice balanced.
  • The sound you get out of this pair of headphones is clear and honest.
  • There's a lot of low bass if that's what you're after but other than that the sound is a bit sibilant and kind of distant. I expected much more.
Sennheiser HD 598 SR Over-Ear Headphone
  • It's also very clean.It has very good separation.
  • Very good midrange, detailed instruments, large soundstage, great positioning and imaging, clear and airy sound.
  • These headphones offer remarkably clear sound, with a very balanced soundscape (i.e., they don't emphasize the bass, unlike so many other headphones.
  • The bass takes a bit of a back seat compared to the other frequencies, yet is still enough to give fullness and punch to the sound. The mids are the star of these headphones' sound signature.
  • These have a very neutral sound, great clarity and a full range of tones. Plenty of bass response, full mids and nice high end.
  • The sound is great with a more neutral sound but still have a somewhat punchy bass.
