Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The cord not being easily replaceable on the Audio Technica was a major deciding factor, too."
_
"The only negative I have is the detachable audio cable that comes with these is rather cheap and is prone to tangle, so I replaced this cable with an iXCC audio cable."
_
"Detail is quite good for the price but not quite as good as their own X1's or other cans like AKG Q701's or Audio Technica 's ATH-MSR7 which cost two or three times the cost."
_
"These open cans really bring out the best in all audio applications I do at home."
_
"I sense the audio experience and signature is Philip's take on both Sennheiser Audio Technica house sound which can only be a good thing."
_
"Audio Quality:Just excellent, I can easily hear the sigh of the singer or details correlation in an opera."
_
"Keep in mind that these speakers are huge, and will likely take up the entire side of your face, but the sound quality is simply amazing, and I find myself noticing audio that I never noticed before while wearing them."
_
"Audio is fantastic."

Music

Music:
"However, unless you are an extremely discerning listener of classical music (which I am, unfortunately), I would not like to recommend those higher priced products, whose prices, I think, are somewhat above a common-sense range for most people (except enthusiasts)."
_
"Music Genre other the Hip Hop sound great, Highs and Mids are nice, but bass is a tad bit lacking, normal for open back headphones."
_
"They are audiophile quality and recommended for all types of music."
_
"( Sound ) Extremely pleasing with any genre of music and also a great choice with music videos films games PC."
_
"I tried mowing my yard with these and could hardly hear my music at a comfortable volume level."

Price

Price:
"These are without a doubt the best headphones I have ever owned however, and the price at the time of purchase made it all the better because these could easily go for double the price if it were based solely on quality."
_
"-1 star because the sub-mid bass could be better, the cable is Cheap junk BUT replacable, and removable ear pads would have increased the lifespan of these headphones."
_
"They are light & have almost no clamp, but the material on the ear pads feels like something on a cheap car seat cover & is not as nice as the velour used on many other headphones."
_
"Warm mids, comfy build, not as fast as my AD900x's, but it's hard to beat the price."
_
"However, unless you are an extremely discerning listener of classical music (which I am, unfortunately), I would not like to recommend those higher priced products, whose prices, I think, are somewhat above a common-sense range for most people (except enthusiasts)."
_
"One drawback of these headphones' design is that ear pads are not replaceable, but I think the low price can easily offset this weakness."
_
"These headphones are probably the most comfortable open-airs I've ever worn for the price."
_
"They sound amazing as well (again) for this price."
_
"Anyway I'm blown away and disappointed at the same time if they were a bit more clear or crisp my new found headphone obsession would be over but I'm pretty sure the x2's are what I'm looking for but for the price and general usefulness they are great."
_
"After reading a lot of information on the Web and with a limited budget to $ 150 approximately, I decided on these headphones that I got a very good price in AUTO CARE DEPOT."
_
"For the price (I paid around 90USD) they are absolutely the best sounding headphone you can get."

Quality

Quality:
"As good as the build quality is."
_
"I must say the first impression is quite positive, the quality of materials used is very good, very comfortable and easily adjustable and once placed her weight did not bother me in my head, besides the size of the pads is very broad and covered properly my ears are medium in size, but I think people with larger ears should have no trouble with these headphones."
_
"The first device I used for testing was a cell BlackBerry Curve tuning the FM radio and the sound was very good and with that source of standard quality."
_
"With this first and scant evidence, and I can tell you that I love the sound of these Philips, are very detailed and not very extensive but enough but well-defined low, have a very natural sound with a slight emphasis on the treble and midrange well present .I look forward to trying them with sources of higher quality and resolution, because I'm sure they just give me more and more satisfaction."
_
"For build quality they are pretty comfortable to wear for long hours."
