I bought these headphones so I could play guitar, and possibly electric drums if I am ever going to buy a set in the future.
The headphones are great, they are comfortable after a while, in the beginning I felt they were kind of itchy or strange feeling, but after a few weeks I got used to them. I even used them for a few months as my outdoor headphones when my bluetooth headphones broke, unfortunately the cable is way too long for that use, so I wouldn't recommend them for that. The headphones also wrap really well around my ears so although they aren't noise cancelling, I can't really hear my neighbours banging the wall or arguing with each other when I'm trying to learn a new song.
The sound quality is great, I think these are perfect for playing because they are comfortable after a while, and the sound is what I can only describe natural. The long cable is also good for that, because I don't need to stand right next to my amp all the time when playing. The cable is not braided, so I guess for some people that would be kind of a premium feature, but I think the overall quality seems pretty good, and I had no issues with it even using it outdoors. The headphones altogether seem pretty sturdy and I am not worried about them breaking when I use them.
I am disappointed the phones don't have a removable cable, that removes one star from the entire review, because it means if the cable breaks, you need to buy a new pair of headphones. If only beyerdynamic could find their way to 2020 with this product and make one with removable cable. Also a shorter replacement cable would mean I could use them outside too, although I guess it is a kind of fashion suicide to wear these outside. I don't know, I just don't care about that. The cable feels sturdy though, it's just, I'd rather be able to replace that sturdy cable with another in case I'm unlucky, you know?
The padding on the cups can be removed but according to youtube videos it can be a bit tricky, so maybe check those out before buying so you can be certain if you really want to go through that stuff, because these are fabric, and people sweat, hair gets greasy, maybe you wear make up, I don't know, all I'm saying is, you may want to wash these things eventually or just replace them. Be sure that it isn't a deal breaker because to me in hindsight it might've been one combined with the cable thing that I am now mentioning way too many times.
All in all, the product is great at its price range and I would recommend it for home use.
