AUDEZE nuts
I love the sound quality. I've had mine for almost 2 years now. But the plastic they use is prone to eventually break. Mine just broke. It's out of warranty so they won't fix it. It seems to be a widespread issue if you check out the Audeze subreddit you'll see this comes up a lot.

They are pretty amazing otherwise. The wireless range kinda blows even under ideal conditions. The mic is pretty good.
Second this. Have a pair, love them. Headband snapped. Trying to decide if I want another pair of these or to try something new….

Huh... How are these? They look open back and I've not seen open back headsets like this, wireless that is.

I love mine, best sound quality in 500$ price range, has some issues with wireless connection (loosing signal), also Xbox headset works with ps5/Xbox and switch, PlayStation doesn't ( you can buy dongle from Xbox ver and pair it with PlayStation headset)

I've also had these for about a year and love them. Another thing to add is that you can have this paired to your console and at the same time have it paired to your phone. The wireless range does suck but this is one of the best headset out there. If using it with your pc, get the software. I changed my earcups to wicked cushions memory foam gel cups.

These sound incredible. Buttons on it are not super user friendly and prefer others. Mic is meh. Right earcup snapped off in less than a year.

Mic monitoring is terrible. There's almost none.
I shout when I game so I need strong mic monitoring. This is what ultimately made me buy steelseries Nova pro instead

Currently on my third pair. Plastic where the headband connects with the cup broke on the first after about 9 months. They sent me a second one pretty quickly, which had a faulty mic. Third one works, but mic won't stay where I bend it like the other two. Got tired of shipping it out and kept the third. Been using it over a year now, check the headband/ear up area every once in a while to see if they're breaking, but so far looks good.

Other than that, sounds good. Ears will feel hot. And it is definitely a snug fit compared to astro a50s

I've had mine since they originally launched. I work remotely so I use them heavily on a daily basis for meetings (I get lots of comments on my great audio) as well as using them for gaming and listening to music. I love them and think they were worth it at $250 (preorder price) - they sound incredible, the mic is great, and I can wear them forever without fatigue. The plastic recently broke (I didn't realize this was a widespread issue until reading this thread), but I just super glued them and you can hardly tell.

If you are looking for them for gaming, I would pass. Im close family friends with investors so I get to test alot of their stuff. Disspointed on both my PS4 and PS5. The Gold/Pulse headsets were better.

Now for music, they are fantastic, as most Audeze headphones are.
