Magma, 16.11.2018
I've purchased these headphones because of their sound quality and was not disappointed. Though I have little experience with other headphones to compare them with, I couldn't find any fault with the sound, and I really enjoyed listening to a wide range of genres with them.
When it comes to comfort, I'm picky, and though the earpads were great and never hurt my ears, the headband had the top of my head hurting quite a bit after only 20 minutes or so. Still, I was mostly able to bear it throughout long periods of time.
Finally, I didn't find the quality of the material very good at all. I do use my headphones all day, every day, but I was very careful with them, and they never left my desk - I never even folded them more than a couple of times. Nonetheless, I found cracks in the headband after only three months, so I had to send them back.
I understand other people have a different experience with these headphones, and the sound quality really is great, but I'd caution anyone considering purchasing this item to seriously consider the build quality issues they may encounter.

Best headphones I've ever used

John390, 14.05.2016
I use these mainly for monitoring tracking when recording. However they are also fantastic for listening to commercial releases and at this price level must be one of the best available pairs of headphones. Added bonuses are the robust case, two sets of cables, straight and curly and a spare set of ear pads. Overall, can't recommend highly enough.
