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.

A pair of high quality full sized closed back headphones
Sorwis, 08.02.2020
Sound is what you'd expect based on measurements: overall tonality is neutral with a hint of brightness due to emphasis around 4 kHz and 9 kHz. These issues are minor as far as headphone performance goes and can be completely fixed with a parametric equalizer. Bass is there if they seal well on your head. In my experience getting a good seal requires me to get my glasses off but I can counter the effect with the same equalizer. Sound quality is the strong suit of these headphones if you get them to seal.

Comfort is highly subjective and I tend to be highly sensitive to any weigh on top of my head but I don't mind high clamping force. The cushioning on these does a decent job at addressing that and they aren't too heavy. They are too big for mobile use even if they are easily drive from a cellphone.

Build quality is great and about what you'd expect at this price range. I prefer the use of plastics over exotic materials to save weight (and price). The included box and cable options are a nice touch. They work well for music and video gaming.

Strongly recommended.

srh940 did not last
vieilleframboise, 29.11.2018
excellent sound quality and comfortable, though a little heavy for long use
the join between the band and headphone have broken just on 4 months. The join is plastic only, with NO supporting metal joiner and NO metal band slider.
am considering now only headphones with metal bands, even with increased cost, because the older headphones I have with metal bands have lasted years, not months.

Very detailed and accurate, bad built quality
FARROKH, 08.02.2019
In terms of sound separation these headphones are fantastic! Much better than many expensive studio headphones, and much better than many expensive studio monitors! You will hear new details in songs that you had never heard before, even if you have listened to that song for 10 years! These are very awesome for mixing, because they are really neutral and flat, with NICE sound separation, very accurate details, and NOT bass heavy. These are for professional mixing, mastering, not for enjoying music.

Comfort: Your head will hurt after 1-2 hours, because the nasty bumps on the headband will cause too much pain! those are not soft, and will annoy your head like nails!
Also, the headphone is heavy and you will think you have put a 2kg stone on your head after two hours!

Built quality: Terrible!
1) Jack problem: I returned them once to Thomann to get the jack fixed (and they fixed it), but the input jack become loose and I didn't send it thomann (sending from Finland to Germany for fixing a jack is not fair).

2) The headband plastic (where it is joint to the cup), fractured. It is a hard, bad plastic! You have to be very careful.

Conclusion: Awesome sound, specially for closed-backs, very nice sound separation, very flat and neutral for mixing! Awful built quality. If you want to mix everyday, or enjoy music everyday, don't buy these! If you want to do occasional mixing and need a very good reference, these are very nice!
