This headphone looks like it references Bose a bit:




And you might want to keep an eye out on this part here:



Other than that, it seems like a great headphone for the price! Is it ported? The back of the earcup looks like it has a vent in it.

Just wanted to say I can't get enough of these headphones. They hands down beat Senns, B&W, V-Moda, Monster, and other heaadphones in $300+ range. I thought Sennheiser Momentum over-ear was the reference in quality for closed back over-ear headphones, but Dolphins destroy those in sound quality. Just my humble opinion

Can I connect another headphone to this headphone
If me and my friend need to listen to one phone, Can my friend connect through this headphone or what ?

Since there are two jacks on the headset, one on the left and the other on the right, can I connect another headphone ?

If so, is the sound volume decreased or not ?

Yes, they have so called share-play where you can daisy chain headphones playing from one source. I do it sometime when my wife and I watch a movie on laptop. The volume level stays the same.

I know I'm a bit obsessed with these headphones, and for a good reason lol!!! But anyway, I was checking for something else on tvc-mall and noticed they dropped the price on Dolphins down to $110.

Colors?
Can't seem to find a listing for the Blue, Gray or Black versions?
As the other colors that I can find (Pk, Lg, Wh, Lo) are not what I would want.

TVC mall only has that "ocean" color. But when I got the 2nd one from them, it was actually blue. Haven't seen any other colors beside pearl white.

Info
Looks precisely like what Im looking for. 2 questions:

1: How is the bass compared to the beats?

2: Have you tried the Marshall Monitors? If so, how do these stack up? I was about to buy the Monitors, but then I saw this and it peaked my interest.

Never heard Marshall Monitors; also those are not as highly discussed on head-fi? In comparison to Beats, Dolphins will have a lot better separation/layering of sounds where Beats just overpower/saturate and spill into lower mids. Dolphins will definitely have more details across the entire frequency range, though neither Dolphins nor Beats will have natural tones when it comes to upper mids where your vocals are sitting. But you get used to it. Audio Technica ATH-M50/50x will deliver a more accurate sound, thus they referred to as studio monitors (with enhanced bass) to provide a more accurate monitoring.

Im looking for something like the Audio Technica ATH-M50x but portable as I will use them for a few applications, one of which will require an inline mic. What can you recommend?

Also, the Monitors have been discussed quite favorably on head-fi. Apparently they are regarded as a worthy successor to the Majors.
