Pros: These headphones are extremely comfortable and sound excellent. My friends can also hear me very clearly. I use them for computer games and I have them plugged into my Onkyo 601 receiver, connected via S/PDIF to my computer. I use these primarily over my Sennheiser HD 280 pros and found them to sound a little better in my opinion. They fit comfortably and feel lightweight compared to the vise-grip on the HD 280 pro headphones.
Cons: Non-replaceable cord? Most consumer class headphones don't have that though, so I can't be too picky.
Pros: I have now purchased 3 pairs of these, 2 for myself and one for my brother. They have high sound quality, a great mic, a long cord, and they are comfortable to wear for long periods. They are well constructed; my first pair is well over 3 years old and is still in perfect condition. I hope they don't stop making them. They're every bit as good or better than a lot of $80 and $90 headsets out there.
Cons: Honestly, there's not much to complain about here. I can't hear my girlfriend when she's calling from downstairs (is that really a con?).
Summary: These headphones are slowly becoming out of stock in places. They are hard to find now and an excellent value. I am buying a new set and I don't even need them yet...mine are still going strong. I will keep them in the closet until needed. I just want to make sure I have another pair. Get em now. Excellent sound quality with great bass and a really clear microphone. Other gamers compliment the sound quality.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone, These take a beating
Pros: I've had this set for close to 3 years now and even though I've given them a fair share of abuse (they've taken dozens of 2-3 foot spills from a shelf) they still work just fine. I've got fairly large ears and a normal sized head I guess, but these fit just right. The mic is very easy to adjust so you're heard clearly but it's not on your face.
Cons: I wish the in-line volume control was higher up on the cord... And after all these years the plastic/pleather covering around the sides just dried up and flaked away. It was just a very narrow lining around the sides (none of it actually touched the ear, it's just decorative, and there's cloth under it).
Leave it to Sennheiser when it comes to headphones

Pros: Great sound for the price, convincing music performance. Microphone is well placed, with fantastic fidelity. Your VoIP voicemail (assuming you have a great voice) cannot sound any sexier than this. Fit and finish is top-notch Sennheiser quality, it has been durable and trouble free since I bought it.
