Pros: Burned in for day or two and they sound beautiful. music and games are more full without rocking down the house with floor speakers. I work Mids and keeping the house quiet while I game and such is very important but I also like to listen to the TV/games/music at more then a faint whisper.
Pros: I've got to say I'm astonished with how comfortable these are. I read a review where someone said they fit tight on people with large heads, but I've got a head like a pumpkin and I could leave these on for hours.
Pros: Very clear through all ranges, big ear pads, and dampens a lot of exterior sound.
Cons: Very high resistance (ohms) so they exaggerate extreme volume variations and require a lot of juice. Not recommended for battery driven devices. A little light on the low end, but easily compensated for from source device.
Pros: Extremely comfortable, don't let the pictures fool you, these are actually amazing, they're even softer on the ears *especially if you have big ears* than the Sony MDR XB 500 which is one of the most comfortable cans.
Pros: Above all these headphones are extremely comfortable. The leather pads feel much better than the pads that come on the RX700. Sound quality is outstanding for 55 dollar cans. A buddy of mine has the Audio-Technica A700 ($130+ headphones) and these sound extremely close to them. These headphones need burn in before they start to sound good. The first song I played on them sounded muddy and dampened but they started opening up after a few days of listening. There are al...
Cons: When playing treble and mid heavy music, the bass seems to sound a bit washed out. These headphones don't sound great with metal and older classic rock.
Summary: I checked out a topten review where this was listed at no. 5 or something. Standing aside the best in audio terms and only lacking in extra features. So with 3 times lower price it was not a very difficult choice. Indeed a recommendable purchase for an amateur listener like me.
