Summary: These headphones sound great and have good bass. They are comfortable and I can fit my ears inside. I compared them with a set of JVC's, which were very good. The JVC's had bigger, more comfortable ear cushion and really good sound for various types of music. I tried classical, latin, R&B, rock. They sounded good. The JVC's were very clear, even at the lowest setting.
Summary: I bought these in June, and they were the best set of headphones I'd ever had. They had excellent sound quality and bass, and had virtually no sound leakage, so I didn't have to worry about disturbing others. However, after about five months, one of the arm things that connected the can to the headband snapped. I tried to fix it with some glue,thinking it would hold until I could do something better, but the next day, the other side broke as well!
