    How about you review headphones that people can actually afford. You review products no one can afford and when on a rare occasion you review something that we can actually afford, you just shit on them. When looking for some new tech I can actually afford, your channel is useless.

    Linus would be so jealous, I got my $20 JLab on-ear headphones from Shopko and I got them plugged into my $2700 gaming computer,
    and I got my windows default sound settings set to 24 bit, 196khz, with Windows Sonic turned on with virtual 7.1 Surround Sound.
    This baby has a whopping 20hz - 20khz frequency response, with Synthetic soft velvety foam that makes up the entire headband and earcups.
    The headphones only weigh 9 oz too! Great for if you got small snowflake ears, and a big head, like myself.

    In an edit. Hell fucking no you shouldn't buy those. I don't care how good it is. For $2000? I'm willing to bet EVERYTHING in that set up doesn't cost more than $250 to make. Then to top it all off, they're charging that price and then literally shitting on you by only giving it a micro USB? That shit better have thunderbolt at that cost.

    Current gen flagship smartphones already have DACs with the accuracy that is more than adequate for most audiophile needs and since this pair of headphones already comes with its own amplifier, you won't have to worry about the output volume of your phone anyway.

But when I let them listen to them they have this look that I may not get them back. Unless you have tried something like this, you will never know!!!! I paid $450 for my set up so the headphones are not the top of the line ones.

      Well most people don't charge their phone and listen to their headphones at the same time so plugging in the dongle to the charging port isn't that difficult or inconvenient. I have an Xperia XZ2 which also has no headphone jack and although I use bluetooth earbuds, I wouldn't have an issue using the USB-C to 3.5mm stereo dongle to listen to my music if I had good over-the-ear wired headphones.

    The one thing that has always been a concern to me when it comes to electrostat headphones is the fact that the bias voltage is in the 10-50Kv range, though it may have dropped over the years since I've owned full height speakers...… the one time I ended up touching the charge in from the transformer kind of left my arm a bit numb for a while.. I would not trust the isolation of any in ear speaker with that kind of voltage so close to my eardrum.. I could well be wrong in that the technology for the headphones and voltage bias for the actuators would be relatively low and not much to worry about, but color me worried when it comes to my ears, I need to be able to trust them in recording.. I've never heard of any people getting electrocuted, but it doesn't mean they haven't .. from headphones.. considering I did from full range speakers with a huge diaphragm to move, the tiny one in a headphone may not be the 10+Kv of the older spearkers I had....just my take on things
