I'm not an audiophile and the musicians would no doubt knock these cans. I, however, think they are just wonderful. They are gadgety enough for me (touch controls et al) and so very easy to use. It's my last point that is the most important ... I have a pair of Sennheiser headphones which have all the features you would expect, noise reduction, real leather etc., BUT they are not easy to use. These Ziks are. No doubt they are priced way too high but THEY"RE EASY TO USE and that's what makes them great in my book. The sound is good too, to my ears.
I gave myself these for Christmas last year. They are the dogs. Bluetooth noise cancelling. They've got style, touch controls, but most of all a plethora of sounds. You will hear stuff you’ve never heard before and the app allows you to customise the sound to the nth degree right up to to concert level. Worth every penny. If your loved one loves music, you'll go down in history with a gift of these.
