Excerpt: I've been using these headphones since about 2002 or 2003 (my first pair was around $).Absolutely the best headphones you can buy for less than a few thousand dollars. I mean it's not even close. I'm not even sold on the very expensive ones over these.
Pros: Adds Functionality, Durable, Fits Well, Good Interface, Stylish
Summary: I just bought a second set of these. My old set still sound great, but the cord is beat up and the covering for the ear cups are worn our. Also, these are On-Ear, not Around-The-Ear, just in case the product title has you confused on that.
Pros: These head phones sound great across their frequency response range. The bass has excellent presence without being overwhelming. The mids and highs are clear and clean. These are well balanced headphones that let you really hear the music just the way it was mixed.
Cons: The long cord finds it's way under the wheels of my chair and gets run over often.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones to use with my yamaha digital piano. The sounds are fine, but not as great as my other headphones (SONY MDRV6, in case you're interested). I find these headphones a little uncomfortable for long time wear. They make my ears hurt after the first hour or so.
Excerpt: As a radio personality, I need good headphones for work. I'm blessed with near perfect hearing and am very fussy about the sound I hear. Because I'm not always talking, I am constantly putting headphones on and off, so they need to be sturdy.
Excerpt: I bought this from BHP to mix my projects in my studio. I have a pair of monitors and they do the job well, but I always find myself walking to my car with my laptop to hear the true mix there. Now i think those days are over. The sound of the headphones is simply amazing.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight
