I'm very picky when it comes to headphones. I had read several reviews about the Griffin WoodTones and still was skeptical even at this price. I had decided to go with the Marley brand but by the time I decided to purchase them they where sold out. I still looked and searched for about 3 weeks before deciding to give the Griffins a try.
Well with all that being said I think these are amazing headphones. I tried a pair of Bose Sound True before these and took them back. The sound trues where great with the highs and mids but sorely lacked in bass. I did not however want a bass heavy head phone link the Sony extra bass. The Griffins are amazing. They even sound like you have a surround sound system on your head. Many times I thought that the music was playing on my phone (LG V10) as well as the head phones because the sound sounded like it was coming from some where else. I'm not going to tell you these are the best head phones ever but even if I had paid retail I would love these headphones.
The wood grain is not as glossy as the images shown and I like that. They hardly weigh anything and they are so comfortable. When I wore them I found that right off the bat I listen to my music longer because they are so comfortable and light weight. I like the look of the headphone about as much as the sound. The highs are amazingly clear and the mids well defined, the bass sounds deep and true and there is no distortion. I have decided to order another pair for my brother who is in the music industry and even picker than I am. I'm also going to order a backup pair and a pair for my girlfriend. Yeah that's how much I like them.
These headphones should appeal to most, even those that like the bass heavy headphones but they are so well balanced that even the classical types will love them. Don't wait as long as I did, go ahead and order these headphones.
