What's in the box

  • Protective carrying pouch


if you’re looking for a headphone model that’s capable of performing as both a studio reference for mixing/mastering and a personal audiophile-grade pair of cans – these might be right up your alley.

Just revise the build quality and you might have a winner here. As it is, the headphone is very suitable for mixing stuff which hasn’t got too much going on under 50Hz. Just keep in mind to compensate for that extra sparkle up high.

A good deal of my enthusiasm for the R70x stems from how unbelievably light they are.
