Fantastic 1000$ and Under Option
This headphone does several things really well, and those things are what I will list for normal consumers with their first big headphone purchase and audiophile's looking for other options to their collection. Pro's: Midrange is lovely, smooth, detailed and expansive, it is not the widest headphone or deepest but does both fairly well and is very holographic with all it's instruments. The Vocals are up from and center which with many offerings from Hifiman that is not the case, and stringed instruments have great texture and positional que around you. The bass is definitely present without being unrealistic or bloated, and because it has this nice rumble and weight it makes the overall balance of this headphone feel very competent. Now the lows may not go as far down as the LCD2 but I do not feel any lack in the frequency of the low end. The treble for the most part is very detailed, smooth(for hifiman) with fantastic resolution and it feels HI-FI. Overall comfort is very good, soft enough ear pads, with light construction in comparison to many other planar magnetic headphones. They look aesthetically very nice to my eye, and I think I fell asleep while listening to them at my desk which if they were too uncomfortable or sibilant would never happen. Con's: these are more things that I had issues with at first that went away through break in period. The clamp underneath my ears, due to the size of my head and the size of the ear pads, the pressure to my pressure points was very uncomfortable on an otherwise very comfy headphone. It actually loosened up over a couple days of use and became very comfy. Second would be the upper midrange and or lower treble was a bit too emphasized, not to the point that I could not enjoy but someone that is very sibilance sensitive may want to skip or burn in before wearing. Now that sharpness faded for me whether it burn in of headphones or my ears adjusting I really don't know but it became very good even through that range.
