Bought because needed closed back for more isolation and wanted overear. Great sounding headphones. Balanced sound movies and music. I'm not a bass head though. I have small head size and these fit. Maybe a little pressure on top of head from headband, but only after extended wear. Pads a little warm after awhile. A little price you pay for the style. I think the cord seems a little low quality, but does fit into my phone jack protective case. Volume is fine with phone output alone. Should be on short list for style and quality if in market.
