"Reliable, comfortable, and totally accurate" is how Sweetwater describes these semi-open studio headphones. I could not have said it better myself. I have been through a fair share of headphones in the 50-100 dollar range and I must say that these are on the top of my list.

The biggest plus about these headphones is the design. Of course they are not the most Appealing headphones in the world but as far as comfort goes, these are top notch. The sound on the headphones is not the flattest I have heard, but they are definitely very detailed. The slightly hypes Hi-end can also give you a feel of how your audience will listen to your mix. The only downfall, that I have noticed, is the wide headband which causes a problem when you want to rest the headphones on your neck while you reference on monitors.

I would definitely recommend these headphones to anyone looking in this price range.

I have had many pro headphones in my commercial studio for many years.

My N/DYM Sonys always worked for my drummers.

These AKG's are what I am most comfortable as a musician when tracking with. No fatigue, warm engaging low end and not too bright to make me paranoid. Likes a powerful headphone amp (Rane HC6 sounds solid).

These get my highest recommendation based on experience for tracking most musicians, unless they have hearing issues...then kill em with the Sony's.
