Our Verdict

Fast, dynamic headphones with a level of insight rare at this price


  • Agile
  • comfortable
  • lightweight
  • impressive detail


  • Low frequencies aren't overly weighty

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.
