Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"The manufacturer tells the owner that he she shoulc contact the seller; the seller (Amazon) washes its hands of the problem."
_
"Unfortunately Amazon's policy of not accepting returns after a 30-day period and not offering any sort of warranty worsens the situation and leads to a Catch-22 position."
_
"First I would like to thank Amazon for giving me the best ,professional , and curious experience ."
_
"I'm no professional audiophile but ; 3 1 2 years of years with best buy , Amazon on and off are my experience with headset headphone lol ."
_
"I can't ship it back and get something else either (I live in Bangladesh so no cool amazon easy return services for me)."
_
"I got this because I saw a few reviews on YouTube and the reviews on Amazon seemed pretty great."
_
"I purchased the velour replacement pads here on Amazon, and they were comfortable, but they altered the sound somewhat, at least to my ears."

Audio

Audio:
"Comfort 9 10 - using velour pads , leather pads are comfy too but a little hot for meSound Quality 9 10 - for the price of course, in the wide-open mode you can feel the bass beating your brain, reason for not 10 points is not as good as Audio Technica M50X."
_
"There are two issues I have with these headphones now that make them unusable, the first being the the cord is shorting out and causing the audio in the left ear to fail."
_
"I've seen audiophile reviews talk about these headphones being not quite as fun as other cans, and while I don't profess at all to have their level of audio expertise, I know what I likes."
_
"Cons:- Audio plug doesn't work well with my android phone (with rubber cover).- Putting it around the neck feels uncomfortable."
_
"I use a astro mix amp pro for my audio gamimg ,and movie enjoyment ."
_
"I've tried a number of headphones around this price point like: Bose AE2i- rank 1 in comfort, Audio Technica M50X- crisp and clear audio, Sennheiser Urbanite Over-ear- stylish and audio quality is a little less than this Custom Pro."
_
"If you are mainly looking for comfort then above average audio quality, you won't go wrong with this headphone!"
_
"- The audio jack is gold plated as well as its 3.5mm to 1 4 converter which ensures better conductivity and longevity."

Cable

Cable:
"I would give these headphones 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that the cord broke after not too long and a replacement cord from Beyerdynamic is fairly expensive."
_
"My only problem was the included cable, it feels high quality, but a week or so after I received them the able stopped working."
_
"The one caveat to this is that the cable is really terrible."
_
"Such a great product, totally ruined by a defective cable."
_
"My primary gripe with these headphones is though with heavy use or even average portable use the cable will go bad and fail very quickly."
_
"It's really nice to have the simple 1 8 connector that's on the headphone, so its easy to buy a replacement cable or get one with a mobile phone style microphone or a full on mic (I actually got a bad one, and Amazon kindly replaced for free).For, me these headphones fill kind of a weird niche."
_
"My only recommendation would be to buy a new AUX cable (preferably one that is fabric coated) for about $7 because the one that comes with the headphones broke after about 5 months."
_
"I guess its good I could replace the cord if I choose to."
_
"Buying a replacement cable is easy, but my first impression with this brand is already ruined."
_
"Such a great product, totally ruined by a defective cable."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"(Still far better than anything else you will really be able to find in this price range except maybe the ATH-M50s) Product quality is great, the headband and ear pads are not leather but nice enough and very comfortable and they feel very solid while being very light."
_
"They don't isolate as well as the DT770M, not as clear or comfortable as the GMP400, not as comfortable as the SRH840, not as rugged as GMP8.300, but they have a better balance than the 770M and same comfort, better tonal balance than the GMP400 and certainly better isolation, more balanced and better isolation than the GMP8.300D, better clarity and isolation than the SRH840, the low impedance, rugged build, and great isolation means this will travel well on public transportation and overseas flights etc..Top overall pick easily!"
_
"With a set of the Beyer felt pads, these would be more comfortable, but their performance won't be as good in some respects for sure."
_
"The sound is beautiful, the construction such that it will withstand being bounced around a bit and the comfort is as so many others described: perfect for long hours on the head."
_
"Great bass, high fidelity sound and a very comfortable fit."
_
"I should also mention that you will love the comfort of the cans (I had them on for hours last night without any discomfort whatsoever), and you'll love the price (the best set of headphones I've ever listened to for under $200).Edit: After comparing the same music with my Beyerdynamic IEMs and the Custom One Pro, I have to say that the COP is even more balanced than the IEMs."
_
"I've tried a number of headphones around this price point like: Bose AE2i- rank 1 in comfort, Audio Technica M50X- crisp and clear audio, Sennheiser Urbanite Over-ear- stylish and audio quality is a little less than this Custom Pro."
_
"If you are mainly looking for comfort then above average audio quality, you won't go wrong with this headphone!"

Customization

Customization:
"However, the STUNNING build quality, beautiful looks, portability (in that they're easy to drive- you can run them from a phone), and customization options really bring these headphones to the top of the pack for their price range."
_
"The structure of the headphones is really great and the customization doesn't hurt but what it comes down to is functionality and the Custom One Pro utterly fails in this area seeing as I can't even get a good experience out of them anymore."
_
"Honestly I wish I could give a solid review for these, they look good and have great customization options."
_
"Comfortable and the amount of customization is perfect so everyone can have their own unique headphones."
_
"Overall, Beyerdynamic COP is one fantastic value currently sold on Amazon for $175 considering outstanding sound quality and level of sound customization you can get out of these."

Design

Design:
"Audio-Technica ATH-700 - Great design but felt weird and slightly uncomfortable for my head."
_
"You can also customize them with different headband colors, earphone pads, and outside shields, but they remain VERY bulky for a portable use The chunky design of earpieces, not being able to fold them, and uncomfortable to wear around your neck prevents them from outside use."
_
"Expected high bass outputs, but, was OK. Good design."
_
"First look: Just as described in various reviews, everything with packaging is carefully designed and aesthetically pleasing to look at."
_
"Audio-Technica ATH-700 - Great design but felt weird and slightly uncomfortable for my head."
_
"The closed-ear design is amazing and easily the best I've ever had in a set of headphones."
_
"They are well designed and built, look great and are comfortable to wear, they cut down tremendously on sound from the outside and above all they give me beautiful, rich, clear, deep, well-balanced, passionate sound."

Fit

Fit:
"BIG PHONES AND LIGHT AS A FEATHER WELL MADE VERY COMFORTABLE AND THEY SOUND CLEAR AS A BELL OUT OF THE BOX THOSE VERSES THE AU TEC M50'S WHO KNOWS FOR SURE OH YES THE CABLES SUPPLIED ARE OF FINE BUILD AND THICK BUT NOT IN THE WAY I LOVE THE PHONES AND WILL DECORATE THEM AS I SEE FIT LIKE THEY SAY ON THE BOXJAY PEREL"
_
"AKG's long-awaited K550s had sound and isolation issues due to sloppy fit, and appeared to have been utterly misrepresented as being suitable for portable device use."
_
"Great bass, high fidelity sound and a very comfortable fit."
_
"I would recommend these headphones if these fit your needs."
_
"Comfortable fit with options for various sized heads."
_
"The adjustable sliders completely change the sound to fit everyone's perfect needs!"
_
"These over-ear headphones have a rather large earpieces with a soft memory foam that fits very comfortably around your ears."

Heavy

Heavy:
"- A little bit heavy (too hard to run with)"
_
"I have never enjoyed heavy bass before using these headphones."
_
"It easily took over 2,000 hours of heavy use (gaming, electronic music, netflix)."
_
"Sound great but become a heavy vice after a while."
_
"Pros:- Amazing sound with heavy bass rap songs and hip hop (Nicki Minaj, 50cent, Dre, Snoop etc.)"
_
"I haven't run any tests using equipment on these cans, but from listening I can detect that they have a pretty heavy V shaped sound signature."
_
"Yet, they were pretty bulky and heavy for my taste."

Level

Level:
"This is easily done by plugging them in and playing music constantly through them at a very low level for a couple of days (don't worry it's perfectly normal to do this with high end hi-fi earphones and loudspeakers)."
_
"I've seen audiophile reviews talk about these headphones being not quite as fun as other cans, and while I don't profess at all to have their level of audio expertise, I know what I likes."
_
"Not noise cancelling but fit snugly enough that you can play music or whatever at a reasonable level and block out most ambient sound."
_
"- It has opened a different level of mid range sound to it which was somewhat repressed with faux leather pads (that did put it's superb bass profile get behind the curtain, but it did not lose any of the sound-stage doing so).- it has definitely increased the comfort level in a way that it can be worn for longer hours without getting the ears worm, however the faux leather might feel softer but can get worm after couple of hours of continuous wear."
_
"These headphones are fantastic as far as $200 entry level audiophile headphones go."
_
"Overall, Beyerdynamic COP is one fantastic value currently sold on Amazon for $175 considering outstanding sound quality and level of sound customization you can get out of these."
_
"The interactive bass component, far from being a gimmick, is fantastic in that it raises the bass level without creating distortion (at least not in the middle setting, which is what works just right for me)."

Listening

Listening:
"Listening to Elvis or Frank Sinatra would not be enjoyable as well as Jazz where you want the vocals, trumpet or clarinet to be prominent."
_
"Treble is not as bright which is good for longer listening to avoid ear fatigue."
_
"Possibly bad luck for some of us .Good luck shopping and stay hunting for your headset love .Happy listening "
_
"I have seen various headphone reviews, articles, people getting all crazy over detail listening and stuff and it's MADNESS, in a good way of course!"
_
"I haven't run any tests using equipment on these cans, but from listening I can detect that they have a pretty heavy V shaped sound signature."
_
"For gaming or for listening to music, you can't go wrong with the Custom One Pro."
_
"One bonus that I didn't expect is that I'm happier listening at quieter volumes because the sound is so great -- I'm less tempted to jack up the volume because loudness isn't really needed to create a great listening experience."
_

Music

Music:
"Pop---I've tested a few singles from popular artists such as Maroon 5,Fun.,michael Jackson,Flo Rida,and Enrique Iglesias and it sounds like the COPs are focusing on the vocals over anything else which is good but it may have a weakness in the main parts of the music itself though."
_
"Beyerdynamic makes headphones built to last with superb sound and this ability to go from open to closed, especially with some popular music's use of bass, a lot of fun."
_
"The increase in sound stage or separation in the open is also significant and enjoyable, especially with classical music."
_
"I never knew my music could sound this good."
_
"Not noise cancelling but fit snugly enough that you can play music or whatever at a reasonable level and block out most ambient sound."
_
"Wanted to love them :c1 15 15 : second orderSo I have been on a mission for about 3 1 2 years now to find in my experience taste the best all around headaet (PS4,Xbox One,movies, music )."

Noise

Noise:
"-Because these have such a low impedance, it is easy to overdrive the speakers which causes an annoying clicking noise."
_
"The NYC subway's crappy infrastructure and its frequent 90+dB noises trump the isolation of these cans easily, so don't think they'll protect you just because they're that big."
_
"It is nice to have the world shut out without a 'white noise' or need to change a battery."
_
"Noise reduction of the COP is terrific."
_
"The isolation is also good for gaming so you don't have outside noise affecting your ability to hear).That being said, if I didn't have 598s, I would use these a lot more."
_
"I looked at all the headphones they had on display, Bose is supposed to be one of the best on the market... After comparing the new Bose noise canceling phones with the Bayerdynamic that I just purchased, I was glad that I went with the Beyerdynamics."
_
"He is very hapy with them, they also do a good job in cancelling noise from outside, Good buy!"

Price

Price:
"If this happened 2 or 3 years down the line I would still be disappointed given the price point of these headphones but 1 month is ridiculous."
_
"The sound quality is excellent, easily among the best, if not the best, at this price point."
_
"Very disappointed given the price."
_
"I got these instead and I must say I'm impressed with the bass production - the highs and mids are not SennheiserHD quality, but for the price - it's hard to find anything better."
_
"These are the best headphones I have had, and I have had the Beats Pro, and also the Detox headphones, MONSTER has people sold on a name and Dr. Dre, Beats for the price are not durable, EVERY pair I have had has broken or cracked."
_
"It also lacks any sort of carrying case or pouch as sold, an odd oversight at this price point."
_
"It is like being able to get open and closed headphones for the price of one."
_
"Nice and good price."
_
"I should also mention that you will love the comfort of the cans (I had them on for hours last night without any discomfort whatsoever), and you'll love the price (the best set of headphones I've ever listened to for under $200).Edit: After comparing the same music with my Beyerdynamic IEMs and the Custom One Pro, I have to say that the COP is even more balanced than the IEMs."
_
"superb quality, good price, and I really love the bass ports - it lets you experience a song in many different ways"
_
"I would recommend these if you can get it for a good price something under $190.because there are better options like the ATH-M50X"

Quality

Quality:
"My only problem was the included cable, it feels high quality, but a week or so after I received them the able stopped working."
_
"Disappointing sound quality."
_
"I got these instead and I must say I'm impressed with the bass production - the highs and mids are not SennheiserHD quality, but for the price - it's hard to find anything better."

Range

Range:
"Great all around for someone who likes a broad range of music."
_
"Ability to adjust bass is a great feature as well, I can pull it out to just check the mid range and upper end or bring it back in to check overall levels."
_
"Never have I used headphones that were able to provide such a strong low frequency response, but at the same still sound great on the high and mid range frequencies as well."
_
"Soundstage is great, as is the dynamic range."
_
"I'm not an audiophile, but have tested a variety of these headphones and these are by far the best and most comfortable headphones in the $300-400 range."

Setting

Setting:
"The COP at higher bass settings can also put out more thump than the M50s, so if you feel the M50 is light on bass (I don't), you will probably be happy with the thumpier settings on the COPs."
_
"The closest I could get is the third position (+ Acoustic EQ setting on iOS devices), but the mids are still too weak."
_
"On fully open the bass sounds wholesome and pretty full (I usually have them in this setting)."
_
"on Heavy Bass setting (all 4 holes open)- Most other music sounds great on dynamic setting (3 holes open) and oh my Metal!"
_
"In short, I can now enjoy most of the genres I like without fiddling the EQ settings."
_
"The slider to adjust bass really works, but for me, the 2nd highest setting was the best one and I barely touched the dials since I found the setting I like."

Sound

Sound:
"Between the comfort and the soundstage on the 598s, they edge out the C1Ps overall, but that's not to say the C1Ps don't sound good, in fact they sound very good."
_
"Fully closed, these sounds a bit weak on the bass (but still discernible and audible, a testament to how good these headphones are) , but it does make them a bit more resistant to hearing outside noise."
_
"I have been using the Custom One Pro's for about two weeks now, at first they wont sound very good and need to be broken in for a few days."
_
"Disappointing sound quality."
_
"These are good sounding headphones, but they aren't AMAZING sounding headphones."
_
"I'm a musician, so accurate sound is important to me."
_
"These sound wonderful."
_
"The newer Bose seem to be even less well manufactured for longevity, even as its sound is nice and the noise-canceling technology marvelous."
_
"The sound is beautiful, the construction such that it will withstand being bounced around a bit and the comfort is as so many others described: perfect for long hours on the head."
_
"Sound amazing."

_
"I was actually looking at the Beyerdynamic 770's and almost was about to purchase those first before I saw these COP's, but not being a headphone pro didn't really know how much the different impedances would play a role (in regards to volume and able to drive them from my iPhone, I mean)."
_
"I'm powering these from my iPhone and typically have the volume on the phone at about 50% and is perfect volume for me."
