The Verge I would if somebody can clarify if they simulate surround sound or just front placed speakers. Haven’t seen a review where that is mentioned. Is Atmos decoding the answer to my question? Thanks.

If I made a lot more money than I do now, I might buy these. But Audeze makes a pair that also does head tracking and 3D sound that I might get instead. Not sure which would win.

This is definitely for someone like me. I am father and husband who likes to watch action movies that are not rated for the age of my kids. not to mention the wifey would rather not watch. I have to watch while constantly having to turn the volume of my receiver up and down for every action seen to when they are jut talking. This is a product that I would purchase, but the price rang is a bit on the high side.

If you want headphones you can't wear outside, buy some really good open-backs for $600.

doesn't seem to be that much stopping you from using them outside of the home though, and the feature to let in some sound could be awesome if you're walking in traffic and want to be aware of your surroundings

I only ever wear earbuds outside the home so for me headphones are meant for around the house. I think these would be perfect for an introvert couple who would like to be around their SO but still doing their own thing

The mixing should absolutely be a dial on the headphones, not a phone app. You need to be able to quickly dial reality in/out, instead of fumbling around for your phone. Great review :)

First time watcher of your contents and I must say this is a great review. I wished my brother had bought these since it frustrates the living hell out of me when he ask me a question and expects to hear my reply while hes wearing a noise cancelling headphones. I dislike yelling and he refuses to take them off of his head. He barely goes outside too and prefers wireless headphones so this seems to be made for him

Too expensive 300 max. but I would definitely use this. I don’t have kids but I like to be respectful of my spouse around the house and this would give me an opportunity for me to blast a movie to my hearts content with full surround sound and she still has the ability to move around the house instead of having to be on the opposite end to avoid the noise. Plus good for late night gaming sessions to keep that full surround. I’m looking at the Sony WH L600 and those are 200 with loss less technology and 7.1 Dolby support plus dtsx they are just not as refined design wise as the Dolby so I can see paying a little more for the Dimension headphones

These are so niche. If you have a kid or spouse you don't want to bother when watching a movie OR you don't like to watch things together AND you can spend $600 on headphones which can ONLY be used at home then these are great. For me, I live in an apartment and couldn't have a surround sound set up so I already use headphones for TV and yes I'd like to have these thank you very much

I hate the price feature lol. Headphones today sound incredible for much less. Headphones are boring now. It's too much of them going on. Invest in high quality bookshelf speakers instead for less than 600 dollars. Go simple and have a great sound in your home for less money.

I think the social norm of "if I'm wearing headphones I'm not listening to you" is a plus. But do they only connect with Bluetooth, because my tv doesn't have that and I'd like to buy these so am I up for the cost of a new tv as well?

I cant justify the price, but as a concept yes I'd absolutely buy those. I live in a 3 story house turned duplex, where I spend most of my time in the attic. These would keep my music from disturbing the others sure, but being able to have all its features while stile being able to hear if someone calls for me is great!

If these were cheaper, they would be incredible for content creation. I stream a lot and I almost feel forced to wear my headset with one earcup off so that I can hear the outside world, such as when someone comes into my room to ask a question. Having a feature like this would be outstanding. However, that feature doesn't justify the price or the general lack of portability.

I dunno about spending 600 bucks on it, but I can see the usefulness of having a pair in home. I live in an apartment building where maybe not having my neighbors hear the loud explosions, gunfire, and screaming death from my TV is the most neighborly thing. Having a Dolby sound system in my ears is the best solution for that. Also, I know plenty of people living with plenty of roommates. These could be useful if you're limited to your bedroom and don't want to disturb the people around you. The price is still a hindrance, but yeah, beyond a more portable version, I'd like to maybe see a budget option.

I would get these if I had the money that is. They are a great sounding product (no pun intended) but as of right now its too niche of a product, yes there are people who really do care about sound quality but I think they would, as you said have a sound bar and speakers around the room for that Atmos soundstage. Great video though really showed how the headphones worked!

Dolby will definitely fail in the market. Most husbands need a total noise-cancelling headphone to create a quiet zone at home after a few years of marriage except for newly married couples. Great product with a poor purpose, not fit for husbands. LOL
