Summary: I'm sure there are more tricked-out headphones to be purchased, but for the price, this product delivers handily. The oval earpieces hug comfortably, covering the entire ear. And the sound is pure. My father is hard of hearing, so the tablet I gave him is useless for Skyping unless he plugs these in. The little elbow extender for the miniplug that came (unexpectedly) in the package ruins the sound catastrophically. Maybe mine is faulty.
Excerpt: Can't say much about them. They do the job and produce wonderful sound. Plus they are sturdy. I use them to listen while recording in the field and also when I edit. They don't feel like they are going to fall apart like a lot of the modestly priced headphones do. Full coverage is nice too and they are very comfortable.
Summary: For about $55-60, you can't get better headphone quality. The sound quality isn't the best ever, but for the price it is near unbeatable. The highs (4K and above) are crisp and clear. Great quality highs, and they're not too loud and overpowering. But the upper midrange (1K or 2K) sounds a bit muffled and muddy. The midrange (guitar and low vocals) are okay, but not impressive. To my suprise, the bass as advertised is pretty punchy.
Pros: Insane sound and sturdy build quality for the price. Comfortable most of the time.
Cons: Non-removable HUGE cable. Less-than-great bass if you listen through your phone or iPod. That's about it.

Everything written below is my opinion, and nothing else. You may completely disagree with everything I say. You can assume that if I’m writing a review I have spent a good amount of time with the headphones and I’ve bought them with my own money.
Pros: Good sound, comfortable, well built, good value
Cons: Thin cable, poor bass and treble extension, feel a bit closed
Excerpt: I use these for editing audio for videos and as a second pair for listening to music on my laptop. The sound is clean overall, a little sterile at times for music but great overall for pretty much everything. One thing that can be either pro/con is the cord is very long. If you want to walk around with these outside, make sure you have a place to put it if you want to use these as portable headphones. For music only, I still just use a pair of Grado SR60's.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excellence where it matters, mediocrity where it doesn't.

Summary: First of all, the cable length is stupidly long but I just tie a knot in it so it's not an issue. It feels a little plasticky but the rubber is nice. The sound is fantastic for everything. I mean everything. They stay clear and crisp at all volumes, even on songs that are overly bassey. On top of all that, they're really comfortable. After using them for more than eleven hours straight I can confirm that they are comfy. You forget about them very quickly.
Summary: These headphones have very good sound production, however, a couple of things hinder me from giving it a perfect 5. 1. The ear cup paddings are too tough, so it doesn't properly sit on your head, therefore you can hear a big difference in mids and lows when moving your jaw. 2. It's not as loud as I would have liked.
