Verdict: "
The clamp and lacking padding of the headband needs to be addressed.  It has virtually no padding under it.  Beyond that, the headphone has some bleed issues at times and on bassy or treble happy tracks that I am not fond of.
The excellent depth of field is a serious win for me though and I admit that a lot of my favorite tracks, especially old Jazz standards, sound amazing through it.  That sense of depth and space in a forward sense makes me really happy, as does the overall dynamically soft impact of the headphone from top to bottom.  The treble needs work and should be boosted beyond what it is in a quantity sense of the word.
Do I like them?  Yes, I do.  I enjoy the bass and depth of field a lot.  Despite the headphone being uncomfortable and somewhat dark, it does have more than enough good qualities about it to lend itself some credibility.  If they could release a v2 in the future, I am sure I’d like it even more."

Product Information

If you like warmth and richness, you’re going to get a superior headphone for the price. These cans sound great in almost every genre.

The 252’s are sensitive and transparent enough to show the different traits of the amplifiers that are driving them and reveal the quality and nature of the recording, but, at the same time, they also infuse their own personal sonic traits as well. With one full-range custom-designed moving coil driver (50mm Dynamic Orientation) the outstanding 252 conventional cans do not sound conventional at all.
