Interesting review, I had a pair of Vulcan ANC's and I took them back to the shop. Presentation wise they are the mutts nuts, but I didn't think much of the sound quality at all.

Did you use them for gaming? Could you comment on the quality in-game such as BF3? I'm looking for something that gives a punch behind the guns, and vehicles.

I could have sworn these had already been reviewed when they came out..?

Also these are extremely heavy to wear over a long period of time.

Lol I doubt they'd be suitable for gaming. They are a bit irritating today actually, compressing my head!

Hate to say I told you so :P

Tbh, headsets are all well and good, but not much touches proper headphones. I'm sure james will say DT770 but I still maintain BF3 (and in a week BF4) sounds utterly superb on AKG's

The Mixrs are quite uncomfortable, it only takes 15 minutes before your ears are in need of a break. Super super tight fit. They work for running, I've tried it once but not something I'd like to use them for. They also block out all noise so if I run after work through the woods it's quiet and not very safe, but at the weekend when there are runners, cyclists and dog walkers it's okay.

But looking for some that are good for BF before I buy some in-ears for running. My pockets just aren't deep enough. BF4 is so close as well. :|

Edit: What's the price tag on these AKG's?
