This is an excellent deal. Would jump on it if I didn't already have way too many headphones.

These are 12 - 28000 Hz @ 32 ohms, if anyone is too lazy to look it up.

Sorry for the repost. A quick forum search shows it's the lowest price by $10.

Great soundstage on these for closed cans. Good sounding headphones but not for bassheads.

I got these a long time ago. This is worth it for the price. The pads failed me after quite about of daily driving though. They are not made to be replaceable but you can probably mod it and manage. It's true though, for closed back they have a great soundstage.

Will agree with the other comments about bass. Not the greatest in the bass department, but it's not like it's terrible. Just mediocre. Despite the shortcomings in bass, these are still a solid set. I own 2 of the K550mkII's which seem to be identical to these except packaging. The lack of replaceable audio cord is a huge concern for me, but at this price I'm picking up another set to compare/have as backup. The cord is ridiculous long and unwieldy to have as a travel pair but great for a home studio/podcast/gaming set.
