Best Cans for the Money


These phones require a highend, powerful headphone amp. Don't skimp if you want the best sound from these cans. They run fine on my Marantz 7007 AV receiver, and through my Asus Maximus V Formula motherboard. Both have powerful headphone outputs.

Planar Magnetic. Easily the best sounding cans I've ever heard. Simply outstanding. 7.1 surround imaging is superlative, bass is mindbowu=ing, mids sing, highs crystal clear. Nothing is muddy or lost with these phones. Please read reviews and...

Only complaint is would have liked to see a mini jack adapter included, but purchased a Cardas adapter for under $20
