Top Quality for affordable price
For the years I have same model but earlier code: SBC HP 250.And after perfect experrience I ordered another two pairs with new signing SHP 2500.Designers constructed this model primary on TV listening.And it does perfectly adding highest and lowest frequency spectre which are poor rensponsed by headphone TV amplifiers.By the chance I have found they are perfect too in recording studio environment.Especially due 6m long OFC cable, volume control on cable and quite good noise isolation,...I use them as controll headphones during mastering process, not because their neutrality, but as simulation of perfect home audio,...

These headphones were a gamble. I was just looking around in a technology shop abroad whilst on holiday looking for a new pair of headphones. I was sceptical about these at first, but when I put on a test pair and played some music, I was completely blown away; I heard absolutely every single minuscule detail of my music, as well as things I never heard before. A quick look at the specs and I was away to the cashier. The next few days I spent rediscovering my music library with this amazing headset. Yes, it may be simple, the cable does get in the way at times, the remote is fiddly but, by Jove, this is the best headset I've ever heard. And for a dirt cheap price I feel is almost unfairly low. When trying headphones in the much higher price list, I'm not jealous because I know that I own a phantom gem everyone overlooks.
What this headset excels in that other headsets fall behind in is the fact that it just plays; it doesn't force the very low and high frequencies most headphones would. They provide you a very wide and clear frequency response, meaning that you hear your music as it was intended, with no bass boost and other trickery. This headset brought me to tears of joy many times, and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with this golden nugget.
One thing that really got on my nerves was the volume control. Yes, you can change the volume but it messes with the stereo balance. One day I just took a soldering iron and bypassed it. Now I regret nothing with these headphones.
