Excerpt: Bought these in summer 2013. They sounded great. After about four months, the fabric covering the left ear started to deteriorate and by six months it had shredded. I covered it with tape and continued to use them. Around the 12 month mark the fabric covering the right ear started to come apart too. That was enough.
Summary: Got these from my brother who bought Senn-Momentum and he no longer need his first portable headphone so decided to give it a shot.
Gear used: WA7 FireFlies with EH golden pins Tubes as for the DAC and AMP, iFi-iUSB power supply, PC with Winamp+, also M-Stage (opa627)
Comfort: 1/5, they might be on ear, so clampy, no space at all!!! you have spend 2-3 mins trying to adjust them to create some space, and you have to do the same each time you put them on.
Pros: sound good with after EQing and long burn yet not for that price....
Cons: muffled sound without EQing, punchy bass that isn't tight , over priced.
Excerpt: Pros: The Look - I love the modern retro look of these headphones. The brown and black just works.Comfort - These are so soft on the ears. I love the new design of the padding. The bass - it booms! But everything else sounds good too.Cons: Construction - they just feel a bit flimsy. I don't know how long these will last, but for $ I still think these are worth itSize - Even at the smallest adjusted size these are a bit big on me.
Excerpt: I'm not a specialist in sound. I don't have other extra bass headphone. I'm very happy with this product. Sony is one of the most famous brand about many products. I recomend this headphone for everyone.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: Build quality and looks: These cans look very stylish. I like the silver disk-like design on the top of the earcups, similar to xb90ex. These headphones are quite sturdy, I expect them to be durable.
Comfort: These are among the most comfortable headphones I ever worn. However, the synthetic leather pads could be uncomfortable for some since they could slip in sweat. These have good seal on ear and isolates well.
Sound: Here comes the important bit.
Pros: powerful bass impact, dark sound, soundstage, good treble, comfort, price

Summary: I think the best head phones are the ones you pop in you eyes, although far more uncomfortable for long periods. The socket that that fits into the laptop is very flimsy & breaks very easily as happened in my case. The sound is OK but not brilliant. Buy a good pair of ear pop in headphones. This reduces sound wastage that occurs with all headphones.
