Summary: I apologize if I duplicate the findings of others. I read the other reviews, and I'm trying to address the things I thought haven't been talked about yet.
The current (it changes, it has too I guess) price (HD7 version) is 29.00 USD w/free shipping.
Pros: Excellent detail, good overall balance, extended HF response.
Cons: I didn't dislike the price I paid for the 668B, but they're now being imported into the US as Presonus HD7's. My box (from Taiwan) arrived crushed.
Summary: I had trouble picking a rating for these.
At the price I paid ($36), these sounded good in many ways, with the exception of the highs, which I found to be harsh.
The killer for me, however, was not the highs themselves, but the ear-stabbing pain those highs induced very quickly (within a...
Summary: No doubt, the 668 is a great value.
The sound is on par with some 200$ cans, and therefor really impressive.

Summary: Killer headphones for the money. Very hard to dislike. People who probably paid more money for AKG K240's (which sound inferior) would probably criticize them. I work in the audio retail industry and have experience with Grado - full line, Sennheiser - full line, AKG full line, Goldring,...
Pros: Sound- bass, treable, mids, stage accuracy
Cons: Not very portable, pleather cushions make you sweat when is warm..
Summary: After a year with this amazing cans i think i can say a couple of things.
How the hell they can make this cans for this price?? China it's the answer...
This cans are amazing for only 20€, they do an unexpected sound quality for the price.
Summary: Got 2 pairs for US$65 ... gave one to a friend who is a bass-head (plays video games and runs it through movies [ DVDrips]) and kept one for myself.
After a year, here is our skinny on these El-cheapos:
Get the ugly part out of the way --> These boys are unforgiving and bright and WILL show up...
Pros: (in context of price) detail ,resolution, soundstage, fast-taut bass
Cons: (in context of price) bright ... bright ... bright
Summary: I recently got these headphones from a german online store after reading the raving review at headphonia.com. While it left me quite sceptical, I thought ca. $35 isn't that much of a risk to take and they'd even be worth the price if they just had a decent sound quality.
But they haven't.
