As someone who works in audio, I appreciate a good quality set of headphones.  I am, by no means, an audiophile – I’m an engineer. I want my products to operate within tolerances that are suitable for their purpose – I’m not up for cryogenically freezing my cables or painting my CDs with green pen, or indeed any other magical tweaks to get marginal gains, at best.

But I do want something that will serve me well, and be comfortable doing so.
