Thanks to their automatically-adjusting headband, they also have a very comfortable fit and are suitable for long listening sessions

Wanted To Like Them - Not Audiophile Quality
Pros: - These cans are possibly the most comfortable you'll ever wear. You can wear them for hours effortlessly. - Excellent build quality -- you can really feel the durability when you pick them up.
