Headphones Owned about these headphones that you prloabby know what you're looking for, before you even searched for them here. This is what you get: clarity and extreme accuracy in a funky, slighly retro-space-age-looking package that's huge, but comfortable. Everything you read is true these are remarkable headphones, but the extreme clarity and wide soundstage may not be to everyone's liking.People often say that these phones are hard to drive, and I have read tons of nonsense about this as well. The truth is this: no, you do not need the most expensive tube amplifier and the craziest headphone amp to go with it to get sound from these babies. Your iPod Nano will drive them just fine, but at a low volume. Your crappy soundcard wiill drive them at a decent volume. Your old, rickety Aiwa stereo will drive them. They will not drive them into the world-class performance that they're capable of, but they will work JUST FINE with almost ANY equipment, unless you're a serious hi-fi-buff.Here's the beauty of this. Buy these cans for your crappy equipment they will outperform any standard headphones. Then as you decide to get better equipment, or as entry-level gear simply improves, they will grow with it. They will handle eveything you throw at them, and their unique signature sound will follow.The only downside to this, if you're anything like me, is that after hearing those old mp3s of yours on these things, you'll want to upgrade your files. When you've done that, you'll want to upgrade your soundcard, get a USB DAC to handle the processing, switch your amp, get a headphone amp and so on. With every upgrade you get, the phones will just sound better and better. It is very addictive, let me tell you, and very expensive. But when you're finally playing the music on a proper CD player or as high-quality files from a good source and run it though a proper amp, you will be amazed. My music will never be the same these phones have revealed so many nuances that I've never heard before even running straight off my iPod with crappy mp3s.Worth absolutely every last penny.Help other customers find the most helpful reviewsa0Was this review helpful to you?a0 | a0
