Awesome Chinese Headphones Review #1: Kanen IP-780

Price: $17,59 at focalprice.
Overall rating: 4/5 stars

This is an excellent headset. The first thing that I noticed is it's awesome design. It looks really good with the red/black contrast and the red cable. It is also very solid, especially the cable.

When I first tried it when it arrived, it disappointed me a bit, but after a few hours of burning it in (letting it play on a high volume, not maximum volume) it already sounded very good and I expect it to get even better when I use it more.

The bass is not overwhelming and I think it misses a tiny bit of bass but it's not disturbing, the bass is still good. Mid and high frequencies are excellent. 

I think this one can easily be compared to big brands. In my opinion this has the same quality as beats by dr dre. The build quality is very good, it looks very expensive and nobody believes I bought it for this price.

The only con is that the left side of my headphone can't handle the maximum volume of my ipod, it makes a bit of a crackling sound. Also I recognize a very slight decrease of bass on the left side. I think only my headphone has this.
