Summary: I'd like to say that these are really great-sounding cans, at least as far as quality goes. These weren't exactly up my alley, because they have a huge soundstage and the sound seems to originate from a distant point (they're laid back).
Summary: HD 215 model was borrowed from Sennheiser and compared with Audio-Technica ATH-M50. Assumed price was about $80 which is not verified. Please see full review and comparison here:
Pros: Solid build, detachable cable, light weight for type, good comfort, clear mids and highs
Cons: Bass response while accurate is lacking in overall quantity

Above "Star" ratings are relative to price.
Price paid is approx MSRP, this was lent sample
The big section you have all been...
Pros: A almost balanced sound, efficent build. Decent comfort and isolation
Cons: Plastic is a bit "bendy" with it being a bit hard to swivel at times, can get uncomfortable.
Summary: Not as good at blocking out noise as I'd hoped, but still fairly good at it. Good sound. They're pretty bulky and a bit painful to wear for a long stretch as the plastic rims can dig into your head. But your ears are pleasantly cushioned inside.
not bad for £40 but not really worth anymore than that

Summary: not bad for £40 but not really worth anymore than that,decent sound but they do not block out as much sound as I expected. Not suitable for wearing over long periods as they do get quite hot and are very bulky.
Summary: After having owned these for a few months, I can say they're great for monitoring sound and have been using them whilst operating a boom mic during film shoots. The sound is nice and clear as well as being comfortable to wear of hours at a time.
Summary: These headphones have a bright sound with clear highs. They have a fairly large soundstage, even though they are closed. Isolation is good, once on your head, you won't hear anything but the music while noone around will hear what you're listening to.
