A Legend for a reson.
Your general opinion of this product.
There's a good reason these are considered the "Gold Standard" of headphones, and why they appear in more studios than any other: They are the Best. They simply sound great, are comfortable, and don't cost too much. I have a pair that are more than 25 years old, and they still sound Great!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
After 25 years, I finally replaced my old pair from 1989. So I'd say the quality is as good as it gets! And the new pair are improved - with the removable cable.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The removable cable and screw-on 1/4" adapter are nice features. But of course it's all about the Sound. It simply can't be beat.
