1. They do not overemphasize the bass. It's tight and, if anything, quieter than the rest of the range.
2. The 1/4 inch jack is what my digital piano puts out
3. They don't require a headphone amp (especially with a dp...mine at least has a pretty good built in one)
4. The clarity and evenness over the whole range is very pleasing.
I have also listened to a good bit of music with them, both classical and pop. I really, really like these for classical listening. They are good for pop as well, but I think they shine with the classical. In fact, I have a cd of a recording of myself singing in a college choir performance that is an outstanding test case. The reason is that it was a very powerful and dramatic performance live, but has never sounded good on the CD. When I listened using these headphones and closed my eyes, it was just like being there. Really impressive. The sound through these headphones is far beyond anything I've heard in any other headphones or even, I dare say, through real speakers.
Now, take that with the following information as well: I'm not particularly an audiophile. I'm a musician, but all other headphones I've used were normal off-the-shelf stuff. If you want a comparison of these vs high end expensive headphones, I'm not the person to ask. But I can say these blow away regular consumer headphones you can get at a store. By a long ways.
They are extremely comfortable on my head. I can have them on for hours with no problems whatsoever. Even while wearing glasses.
The build quality seems good. I mean, it's a step up from super cheap headphones, but not the kind of thing that really makes you go WOW. I'm sure with not too much pressure I could break some of the plastic parts. They look really nice, though, for headphones.
Now these are open-air headhones, which means while you are wearing them you can hear everything around you in the room just about as well as you can when not wearing headphones. That can be a plus or a minus. In general for me it's nice to be able to converse with people while wearing headphones...on the other hand if someone is watching a movie in the next room, you will hear it.
A big deal has been made by some reviewers about how people can hear the music you are listening to while you are listening to these. I have to say those people have the volume turned way, way too high. I have played music as loud as is comfortable to my ears and my wife sitting next to me has to really focus to tell whether I'm listening or not. They certainly leak sound, but it's nothing like problematic. If people around you are hearing it, you seriously need to turn down the volume...it's pretty easy to harm your ears using headphones and that is a big sign that you have crossed the line.
Great headphones. I got them at a great price here on amazon (some kind of sale...and I think they are replacing this model or something). These are a perfect intro to super high-end headphones. Wonderful for musicians. Just be aware that these headphones do NOT have a particularly powerful bass. If you are looking for that, look elsewhere, because even regular consumer headphones have more bass--it's just nowhere near as clear and clean.
Plug them in to your digital piano or something and go crazy.
One more thing, if you are wanting to plug this into a 1/8 inch jack, like an mp3 player or something, I'd probably look elsewhere. The 1/4 to 1/8 adapter is big and awkward and doesn't always make a perfect connection. High end stuff has 1/4 inch connection and this is designed for high-end stuff.
Note on longevity- I keep them hanging on the fantastic desk/shelf mount it comes with. Since these are open can I don't bring them places and I'm sure that has helped keep the cord from fraying. They've also survived occasional drops to the stone floor when I trip.
My ONLY problems have been related to the adapter I bought from Radio Shack to make it compatible with my iPod (on that note, these are especially great, since they really don't need an amp -- you can go straight to the source without losing a whole lot in terms of sound quality).
My only quip would be that the cable is very, very long and can sometimes get in the way. But that's sometimes a good thing, if I'm using them to play guitar without annoying people, so I can't downgrade them because of that.
If I were to recommend an entry-level Sennheiser audiophile headphone, I'd recommend the 598s (the upgraded version of these), but if you're really looking to save some money and still get top-notch headphones, these are the right headphones for you.
