    It was listed in the "Description" tab and says "Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.) enables ideal sound channelling for a new kind of listening experience"

    What it means is that the headphones have been engineered in such a way that when you put them on (properly of course) that the drivers (speakers) of the headphone send the sound in the most natural way. This is seen more often with high-end headphones in order to achieve the best possible sound.

    This "E.A.R." technology, is the fancy name that Sennheiser has called it but this can be seen with other audiophile level headphones as well.

    It appears to me that the drivers (speakers) are at an angle in the ear cup so that they point slightly backwards. I think this is done to create the effect of sound coming from in front of the listener rather than directly from the sides.
