Summary: I did my research before buying a pair of headphones, I needed a pair for just general home use and for travelling and these certainly do the job! They are extremely sturdy and have got a good build on them, more than what I can say for Beats Bt Dre Solo's, had a pair of them and they snapped in 3...
Excellent sound, but attenuation is not as advertised which limits use as monitors.

Summary: I got these specificaly to be monitor headphones in my home drum studio. Previously I was using Apple in ear buds under DIY style ear defenders (JSP big blue). My requirements were to have good quality audio, but also excellent passive sound attenuation.
Great all round sound, and 'YES' amazingly these have bass

Summary: Although these headphones are stated that they attenuate sound to a degree of level is somewhat misleading. Yes they do prevent isolation of sound which was the main reason for purchasing them, but i reckon they only do compared to their cheaper models, as i have a pair of HD 205's.
Summary: I did a fair bit of research to find a quality set of headphones for studio use at a reasonable price. I can't understand anyone giving less than four stars in their reviews if they have a fully functioning pair of these headphones.
Excellent sound, comfortable for long periods, do lead some sound though

Summary: Bought these because i wanted 'closed back' headphones that leak less sound, not annoy other people nearby etc. Great sound across the range, you might find you'll need to tweak your treble setting maybe These are not 'noise cancelling', but they do leak a bit of sound even for a closed back...
Summary: Fantastic headphones that produce crisp clear sound. Portable, very comfortable, well made, light weight and a perfect length cable for use with my laptop. Creedence Clearwater Revival now sound even better! Highly recommend.
Summary: These headphones provide excellent sound quality. You'll be able to hear almost every detail that you previously missed. They provide very good sound isolation however these are not noise cancelling. They're very light and thanks to the tight fit there's very little sound leak.
Summary: I'm an amateur composer, music producer and sound engineer. So I demand the highest sound quality out of my monitoring headphones. On the other hand, I also appreciate some of the cheap offerings out there, especially Apple's second generation iPod earphones, as I understand what they're supposed to...
There is probably a newer version but these are great. Big heavy coiled lead though

Summary: I bought these well over a year ago for my partner and he absolutely loves them I steal them all the time. There is probably a newer version but these are great. Big heavy coiled lead though...which some users might find annoying for travelling.
