Our Verdict Fast, dynamic headphones with a level of insight rare at this price For Agile comfortable lightweight impressive detail Against Low frequencies aren't overly weighty Reviewed on 30th May 2007 These headphones look like something Doctor Who stole off an unsuspecting Cyberman. But they're actually very comfortable and lightweight. Low frequencies aren't quite as weighty as those leading rivals, but they draw an impressive amount of detail. These headphones trade heft for greater agility and speed. This makes for a fleet-of-foot approach: there's a purity to them that's captivating and entertaining. If you'd like an alternative to Grado, the Audio Technicas will do nicely.
