Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

SteelSeries TUSQ

(1/1)

These are buds are better than expected for casual PC gaming (wanting/needing to still hear the room). But with the right size ear “pads” the do a great job blocking out sound. The mic has a slight static sound at times, not noticeable by me and not very frequent But overall pleased with this purchase

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

SteelSeries TUSQ

(1/1)

I wanted to love these so much because I love the concept of a boom mic for better call quality but the earbud itself is too heavy and I find it keeps coming loose and doesn't remain sealed in my ears. The hook helps it from falling off my ear completely but I have to constantly push them back in and after a few hours my ears get sore. Mic was great but just not good fit for my ears. Returned these
