Just read the review with measurements and I'd like to add my 2 cents.
There are 2 versions of these cans. The silver one, which has a graphene coated driver. This is actually the one used in the review. There is also a gold version, which has a titanium driver, this one:
According to a 1more representative and a couple of owners (see the HF thread) they're tuned in a slightly different way. A tad more bassy the silver one, a tad more bright the gold one. The cable is also different. No remote on the gold's one (at least on mine).
The gold one is my every day headphone since last year. I paid them 139€, definitely excellent value for money, imho. My ears are small enough to fit the hole in the pads, even though they touch the internal side of the pad. So for me they are (almost) over-ear. Anyway, it's not really comfortable for long listening sessions. There is a bump on the inside due to the ceramic tweeter that can be annoying if it make contact with the ear. In that case just swap the headphone L-R (and the cable). Almost no microphonics with the cable provided with the gold one, I think it's above average.
Regarding the bass, with some music it's a bit too much, but overall I found it on the good side, maybe because I use glasses with thin stems which my help reducing it a bit. I found that the bass undergo an adjustment over time. I don't know if it is just psychoacoustics, pads thinning, or what else.
I really like the "front row" presentation of these cans. They're not veiled, recessed or boxy. On the other hand the sound stage is not very wide, more L-R than deep, with decent instrument separation. I also like the way they reproduce instruments timbre, natural, engaging and on the warm side. I preferred these headphone over the Elegia....
Finally, I have a question for solderdude. Can you think of an headphone you listened to that may represent a step forward wrt 1MTDOE but in the same direction, i.e. with a similar presentation but an overall better quality?
