The Pro 500 is a beautifully, bodaciously styled headphone with a unique sound. ... In the bass, it reminded us a bit of some of the hip-hop headphones we’ve heard; although the bass wasn’t quite Beats-big, it was clearly intended for those who like plenty of bottom end. For the right person, this is an extraordinary headphone, but make sure you’re that right person. quote

If you want pristine articulate highs at the expense of bass and midrange these may not be for you. If, however, you want a well-rounded linear set of headphones that are true to the music and perhaps favor the midrange just a tad bit for clarity and detail, these are sure to please.

They may not be ideal for audiophiles—or anyone looking for a set of studio monitors—but their sound quality is very desirable for music aficionados who don't like to tinker and fuss with equalizer apps. If you have a chance, give them a shot.
