Cool! How would you compare the noise isolation with the MDR-1A's?
Whoa, not a lot of love for the original hybrids here. I'd never switch them to an IEM that's constantly being described as "shrill", "harsh" and "shrieky" in the highs.. 
 I've solved it now, all it took was a little bit of bike oil.  
My HD 4.30 sounds awesome but the headband has started to make creaking sounds where it connects to the cup. It creaks when I move my head or jaw. You can only hear it when wearing the headphones but it's pretty annoying when you just want to hear the music.
Aren't they the 2nd generation of hybrids?
Yeah they feel really sturdy. The only other pair I've owned in this price range that had better build quality was the Sennheiser Urbanite, which was built like a tank (but doesn't sound as good as these IMO). I think they're comfortable. The pads are really soft. If your ears aren't too large they will cover them completely and isolation will be awesome. I'm not very good at reviewing audio gear, all I can say is that they don't have any of the "congested" sound I dislike...
I got the HD 4.30 the other day and I must say they are very decent sounding. Lots of bass for a Sennheiser headphone. At first I thought vocals sounded a bit tinny and a little distant, but I don't hear it like that that anymore. Must have gotten used to the sound quickly! Great build, comfort, isolation and mic+remote. Just what I was looking for actually! Oh and they look gorgeous.
  there is no evidence supporting physical "burn in" as a real thing, and sources barely mean anything when it comes to IEMs, unless you use a really old and crappy DAC
damn, still no L shaped plug.
 Those are going to be a pain to clean now..
