Summary: I use these headphones mostly in conjunction with my computer/PX5D Pandora processor. I also use it for games. Based on my experience so far the sound quality is very good for the price. Only gripe is in the fit. The outer lip does not cover your ears very well, but they were advertised for DJ use so I am guessing that the intention is to make them easier to slip on and off for monitoring.
Pros: Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: Unlike many of the other reviewers, I am not so pleased with the frequency response on these headphones. I listen to a variety of music, on bass heavy songs, these sound muddy seemingly emphasizing the bass at the expense of the mid range. As others have pointed out, the cup size may be a bit small. The band feels tight after about an hour and the seams start digging into my neck when I dont have it over my head.
Summary: Have had this same pair for almost 3 years now. Have never had a problem with them. Use them mostly attached to my laptop or an iPod. Note that these will drain a battery powered music player like an iPod much faster then "eye-bud" style earphones. Overall, sound quality is good, they cancel some external noise but not all.
Summary: I used VModa Vibe earbuds for about two years and the wire of the earbuds become stiff. Thus, I bought ATH-Pro5MS as an alternative.
After few weeks' listening and comparing with Vibe on my Sansa View with MP3 compression ratio 192K and better for easy listening, pop, and classical music pieces, I would say Pro5MS is at about the same sound quality as Vibe.
Summary: first off these are way better than any standard, icluded in box headphones you'll get. they not only have unique artwork (the biggest positive)but pretty good sound. The camo is sooo gnarly. you'll look cool as f fo sho. but anyways, back to english, the sound isn't as hiigh quality as i hoped. but still they are pretty good. they keep out the sound and have quality materials except for the small cords right by the ear.
Summary: I purchased the ATH-PRO5MS because I needed good headphones that would also muffle outside noise (since I take the train every day). Although they are not noise canceling, I have to say that for $50 these are great headphones. They provide an excellent range of sound and they have allowed me to hear nuances in my music that I have never noticed before. They are also great at muffling background noise enough so that you don't have to crank up the volume to enjoy music.
Excerpt: Использовал их в основном как наушники для плеера. За 2 года амбюшюры истрепались, но это скорее вопрос ко мне, а не к производителю, ибо юзал я их нещадно. Если ищете удобные недеорогие наушники для прослушивания музыки в плеере - эти самое оно.
Pros: В своем ценовом диапазоне на мой взгляд одна из лучших моделей. Хороший звук, легкие, удобные, не привередливые к условиям эксплуатации. Модный милитари дизайн. Хорошо прослушиваются низы и в целом по ачх близко к студйиным моделям, но несколько задрана середина. Из-за этого при написании музыки и сведении я бы их не рекомендовал.
Cons: Не подходят для профессионального мониторнига.
