    Just got my pair today. Compared it with my Bose QC15 and Ultrasone 580. Overall I am very impressed with the fit and form. It's very comfortable to wear and I dare say the sound quality is up there with the other two. The low B does come off nicely not that much better then the other two. In comparative terms... Comfort wise it's nicer then the other two. In sound quality it's as good and in terms of price it's much much better.

    So IMHO its a real good deal, and the case it comes in is pretty cool too!

    Glad to hear it! Are you using the headphones for practicing, or as in-ears for a gig (I personally use a set of on-ears any time I have to use in-ear monitors)?

    How are the Phil Jones for ear fatigue? I'm not sure if it's because I've been failing to properly EQ my well-worn Sennheiser 555s (my only pair of nice headphones), but I run into ear fatigue after only about 10 or 15min, playing with reasonable volume.

    I got this email from Nathan East:
    Official report on your headphones: They're my new favorite headphones, the BEST that I have the pleasure of owning and listening to my music on from now on! How do you do it Phil?? Everything you touch turns to gold. For two years in a row now, the only product I walked away from NAMM with that I incorporate into my daily life! Forever grateful sir!!
