Meze 99 Classics, in Walnut-silver trim or Maple-silver trim.
99 Classics use a machined natural walnut or maple wood housing, combined with a wide, soft headband and memory foam earpads to good effect. Weight is surprisingly light compared with other brands and confort is excellent. The 99 classics are a very good sounding headphone in their price range, having racked up many great reviews.
Impedance is 32 ohms and sensitivity (how loudly they will play when fed a small amount is power) is high at 103dB, making them quite easy to drive. Feed them a good clear source (Dragonfly Red, etc) and the 99 Classics provide impressive sound.
The short cable has an inline mic and both use a kevlar lining and fabric wrap for durability, with OFC copper for high quality. A hard shell carry case is included, with two cables and adaptors. These have a 1 year warranty, now with Canadian support.
