Summary: My Preference
The primary styles of music I enjoy are New Age, Classical, and Celtic. Essentially I would not be welcome in a conversation about Metal or Rock. I have few prejudices when it comes to music genres, and can listen to and enjoy many different kinds. The only kinds of music I am not fond of are ones with screamed vocals. that being said, on to the headphones:
At first glance, these are absolutely beautiful looking headphones.
Pros: Very comfortible with a fantastic build quality and good looks.
Summary: I originally rated these 5 stars because of the spectacular soundstage that I still think is the best at its pricepoint. However,after only 2 months of minimal use the left driver has totally died..I probably just got unlucky,but its worth bearing in mind that the build quality may not be the greatest on these.
which are considered by many one of the best pairs of headphones

Summary: Before I purchased these headphones, I made sure I did a lot of research. I regularly saw them being compared to Audio Technica's ATH M50's, which are considered by many one of the best pairs of headphones. The review's on Amazon were also very positive so needless to say, my expectations were fairly high. Unfortunately they were not met. I found the bass response to be extremely weak, even with my EQ on max bass settings.
Summary: these are brilliant for listening to music while sitting still. sound quality is just fantastic. five stars for that. the problem is that the cable is a nightmare. it makes a ton of noise if you even slightly touch it, its got a really annoying built-in microphone thingy (which i resorted to supergluing to the earpiece to try and prevent bashing against things all the time). this makes them, for me, more or less unusable for use while moving around in any way.
Summary: I ended up returning these because they looked huge on me and after trying them on my commute I found I couldn't wear them for more than 20-30 minutes, which was a big disappointment, as I had read that they are very comfortable and this was one of the main reasons I decided to buy them.
Summary: Wow extremely disappointed after reading so many great reviews about this product. Pros: Very stylish you really do get complements wearing these headphones. Voice control is a added bonus (and it explains why its so high up the wire). Comfortable ear muffs after a while its like there not there. (That's just me) Cons: Using these in an android is a big let down as the sound is almost not worthy of the £41.00 price tag.
Summary: the headphones are smart and from a great company so why did I only give them 3 stars and knot 5 that's because over 30 mints they start too hurt my ears and I read a lot of audiobooks most are over 10 hours long as they clam that Philips ones last longer then that 30 Minutes before they start to hurt your ears the clam to be soft and very commutable I did find that was true for me because just after 30 mint they began to hurt me and get very hot and un commutable in my...
Summary: I am far from being a technophobe and I think it is important to know why you want to buy these. Unless you want to spend a lot of time wearing headphones whilst you're using your mobile phone, you will not get maximum value for money. A big plus with these headphones is that they are very comfortable to wear.
Summary: First off - these are huge. I mean absolutely huge, closed cup headphones. You really have to like this kind of retro styling but don't be surprised to get some appraising looks on the commute to work. I actually used these for a few of my journey's into London, which gave them a really good road testing, i was impressed by the quality of the sound as well as the relatively (for the price) decent noise cancelling ability.
