The specs are good for any kind of listening. For SWDX, or indeed,
any kind of long-term listening, the comfort of the headphones is as
important as the specs. Those headphones wil be plenty "loud" enough
with any receiver, and
the frequency response specs far,far exceed anything you'll need for SW
Now if you listen to FM radio at all, the specs become much more
important, but those are still fine. The THD figures are also good.
Note you can buy comfortable headphones this good or better at a lower
cost - the titanium thing is, as someone else pointed out, a "buzz" word
selling device as much as anything.
For the record, I like cushy, foam cup phones for serious music
listening, but for radio DX of any kind (and I use phones 95% of the
time) I prefer the very light "on-ear" type. Mine are a $25 Radio Shack
pair, and they work great.
