The only bad thing is that yeah, I've been buying these headphones for fifteen years... a lot! If they last two years without breaking, that's a good two years. The sound keeps working but the damn piece of plastic that attaches to the swivel thingie cracks real easily (duct tape keeps it together for a couple of months) and eventually the thing just snaps off entirely. And I treat these phones real gingerly.
Still, I give it five stars because no other headphones give this much depth and clarity and I guess it's worth buying every couple of years. Keep your eyes on the price. In the late 90s they were around $200 and then they gradually went down to $100, as older models often do. Now they're $160... yikes! If you see them cheaper here or at some other reputable place for less, buy at least a couple of pairs!
So I get home and hook these up to my laptop. My first listen of an MP3 with these blew me away. I heard a balanced sound but with something extra. Instruments I never heard before, vocals and chords that Titans hid from me so well. And the base, not overpowering, not interfering but invigorating. It was like I was playing the base guitar (which I can't) to the adoration of millions of fans on a sound stage (none of these things will ever happen). My hate for the Titans grows stronger every day. My second test was with an actual CD (didn't even know I still had one). The sound from the CD made me hug these babies. I even stopped worrying about how to reveal it to the Mrs this frivolous purchase, but only for a minute.Read more ›
These were a lot more money back then too I think. 2002? Ish?
They could be made from entirely different materials these days for all I know, but this model was awesome back then.
Then pick the Sony MDR-V700DJ Studio Monitors. Take it from someone who has had the Bose which are quite good. Yet for the price & sound quality....The "MDR's"are the best.
Have always wanted a pair of my own now here they are.
Pick up a pair and you shall not be disappointed.

Plastic parts such as swivel (universal) joint are made out of thin and bad quality plastic. They broke after short period of use. I cannot use the headphones. Read morePublished on June 24, 2012 by Peter Depeche
