Bass achieved.

When I listen to dub reggae and other bass-led music I like to hear a dominant bass without it cancelling out the mids and highs. I've tried EQing my Sundaras and HD-6XXs but the bass just isn't enough. I tried some Skull Candy Crushers and Beats (unknown model) and the mids & highs were laughable. These headphones suit me perfectly for the times I want listen to bassy music. The bass is tight, not flabby.

Build quality is very good, puts my Sundaras to shame but not bombproof like my Sennys and Beyers. The carrying case is 100% great.
I have a small narrow head, the comfort is great, 2 hour listening sessions are not fatiguing at all.

Magnificent

The real-wood backs of the M1060C look really cool and give an up-market, solid-chic feel.. They are also quite heavy and have nice thick pads that surround the ears in a pleasing way. Sound isolation is pretty good - I can enjoy my music while a TV is blasting away in the same room.

Soundwise: the M1060C starts off as dark and enveloping. Big, fat, weighty bass and smooth mids really wrapping you in an audio experience. After about 10 hours burn-in the treble came up to be very detailed but never harsh. Then you realise that these are planar drivers with that airy, spacious, effortless detail and a beautifully-defined soundstage that is remarkably wide and -out-of-the-head for closed-back headphones.

Playing Jarre's 'Equinoxe', the M1060C gave a load of power in the bass, 'Monolith' is a good name for these as the bottom end is like solid marble: heavy, subtly-defined and smooth.

Bottom line: the M1060C is a truly satisfying closed-back that combines rich darkness with a sharp, wide-screen definition.

So impressed that I bought the Monolith M1070 a week later - also a truly stunning headphone.

Awesome in their own niche. Not all music's better with them, but the songs that do benefit, they sound awesome. They do benefit from a headphone amp and respond very well to EQ - both things extend the range of great sounding music.

Solid for a price, but overall could be better

These headphones are both good and bad. And their strenghts do not out do their flaws unfortunately. First of all, head band is very uncomfortable at least for me, you can easily feel the substantial weight of these headphones. Also it allows for "too much" adjustability, it is great that it swivels but its a little bit too loose and it makes it not that easy to find ideal settings for all the adjustments.
Sound compared to Sundaras or M1570 is rather muddy, lacks dynamics but is solid taken into account price of those. Allegedly play much better when you get rid of wooden caps and make 'em openback.
Cable feels flimsy and cheap-ish, nothing that cannot be changed with aftermarket solutions.
If only the headband was a bit better, like proper suspension or solid one, not something in between, I would give them much better score. But for what they are from factory it seems like 4 is fair score from me (would go more towards 3.5 but 3 is too harsh)
For "entry" level especially obtained at discount with some TLC they could make solid pair of planar headphones
