I love these guys! I have had this pair of headphones for about 2 years or so and am surprised at how comfortable they still are. My AE2's have been through hell and back with me and have proven to be surprisingly durable. With that said these headphones are nothing more or nothing less than advertised. The sound is crisp and allows me to appreciate even the subtlest of nuances in whatever I may be listening to. My AE2's find a perfect balance between comfort, quality and isolation.
