I bought these wanting something that would really let me hear all the instruments in the music I listen to without the bass overpowering everything. 100% worth the money. Goes beyond my expectations. Crisp clear sound. Decent when it comes to noise-cancelling. Usually takes some times to break headphones in but these sounded great from the start. The only downside is that they aren't that comfy for prolonged use, anything over 3~4 hours it starts to feel a little bit tight and a headache starts to linger. Other than that, these are really the best headphones you can get for it's price.
