Summary: I just did several hours with them running through a diverse and extensive library of music. I thought they did very well with everything I listened to. These replaced a set of AKG K26Ps and I couldn't be happier with them. I like the fit of these better than the AKGs they replaced. The sound out of them is well defined. I don't think they miss much if anything at all. You can't beat them for the price.
Pros: Excellent, well balanced sound quality.
Cons: Too soon to tell about the durability. I've read some reviews that say they are easy to break. The construction looks pretty good to me.
Summary: The last 'phone I had in this price bracket was the Sony MDR V150. There simply is NO comparison between the two. Sound signature is a lot more resolving and detailed but not so much that you feel like you're listening to a more expensive headphone. Bass has fine detail if not a little light in body. High hats and cymbals sound crisp and precise however when things get busy the highs break down and become shrill.
Pros: -Light weight, -Balanced sound signature, -My music player fits in the provided bag with the headphones :)
Cons: -One-note bass, -Highs can be shrill and disjointed. , -Pleather cups not as supple as they look on the internet
