have an open one Wink phenomenal sound ! believe it was the first approach to full size portable planar HPs - not really portable mostly due to size (still on a larger side!) - but easy driven by iPhone ! stellar $$ - highly recommend ! Rock"

I know these were NOT designed specifically for it, but can these headphones be used while walking or jogging?

.


if you are asking if they will fall off your head if u jogg, i suspect yes. walk, probably not.


i think they come with 2 cables, 1 of them has mic, so if wired to a phone, you should be able to walk and talk

Sure it's like any other headphone/earphone. The cable length is 6ft so be warned that you would have to tie it up to prevent walking on it or something. Also for outdoor use....not recommended. "The EL-8's ear pads are made of leather but they do not breathe, so if the outside temperature is hot and sticky, your ears will soon be hot and sticky"

Are these as good as Beats, or Bose? Said no one ever!!!
I can't afford these right now. But, I would like to know if any of you have suggestions for a closed back pair of headphones for around $100-130

Thank you for your insight! American made makes it much more compelling than Chinese made! (And Repped!)
