Pros: Disclaimer: I'm not an audiophile in any which way or form. I just enjoy listening to music on iTunes and playing games. The sound quality on these headphones is amazing to me. The pads still feel great and very comfortable after 6+ hours of use every day.
Cons: My only quip with these headphones is the cable. I purchased these headphones around 6 months ago and the volume adjuster on the cable was already starting to poop out after just 2 months of use. I still haven't been able to find any replacement cables that work after infrequent searching the pas...
For hi-fi sound at a low price, it's hard to beat Creative's Aurvana Live! After almost a year of use, they are still holding up well.

Summary: Aurvana Live! headphones from Creative solved a major problem for me—how to listen to hi-fi audio while walking the dog at night in my South Philly neighborhood. I live near a restaurant and bar district in Center City, Philadelphia, and I'm not interested in attracting attention because of my...
Pros: Clean sound with good bass response. Lightweight and comfortable. Inexpensive and rather low-key in a good way.
Summary: I got these a little bit ago as a compulsive buy and I gotta say they are veryy good! Specially for their price. The little Fostex driver :) I used them for music and sometimes gaming in single player (maybe multiplayer when voice chat is not needed).
Pros: The sound is very good! Much better than any headset I have tried under $150, very light, warm sounding, soundstage is decent for closed headphones
Cons: The top of the headband has some odd pressure points that I find uncomfortable over long periods, but may be due to the lack of breaking it in. Also some distortion in the highs and lows during very bass heavy songs.
Summary: Well designed and constructed phones. Very comfortable and easy to adjust. Two piece cable for long or short connection. Really nice sound with good solid base. I have used these phones with my big analogue and digital amps, with good quality sound cards on PCs and laptops, with my Chromebook, with...
Summary: Got these after I ran over the cable of my last pair and broke them, to start with I can see these have a much shorter wire (About 1.5m?) which makes it impossible to run over but is a bit short when I want to move away from my desk or if it gets tangled on something.
Very good clarity. Need a good source for best performance.

Summary: These headphones do have a level of detail that makes you perceive more of what's going on with your music. Since there's a tendency to excel at higher frequencies, you will get kind of a sparkly audio signature but, you do have to be careful with how much bass you feed them.
