Summary: Look solid and well-built, and are comfortable to wear. Sound is fine for my unsophisticated ear, and they seem to be well-isolated (so that people around won't have to enjoy your music with you).
Summary: I looked at numerous headphones before choosing these. I wanted quality but also value for money as headphones seem to be exorbitantly priced these days. I had previously had sennheiser headphones which I would also highly recommend, but I fancied trying something different.
Summary: My daughter wanted a pair of decent 'over ear' headphones but I was reluctant to spend over £100 as I didn't think that she would look after them. I did some research on the ATH M35 headphones which received good reviews as did almost every other pair of headphones that Audio-Technica make.
