Pros: cheap, good sound

Cons: cant imagine who these are designed for. they just plain dont fit

i got the ath-a700x

couldn't be more disappointed!  
cant imagine who these are designed for. they just plain dont fit.

perhaps if the 'head supports' had adjustable or stiffer tension...but as they sit now they're on a spring, which offers little to no resistance.  

im a total noob in the headphone dept...i imagine i have unreasonable needs and expectations.
i want 'dj style headphones', with good mobility, and entry level studio/production/audiophile sound.

i love the fit of beats solo, theyre great for walking around. but they sound like garbage.
and the search continues...these are getting returned.

What you want is a Beyerdynamic DT1350.
Much better fit than the Beats, and much better... well everything than them as well. The DT1350 is extremely detailed, easily driven, and has the best bass of any portable headphone. It's neutral with amazing treble extension and sub-bass that can massage your head. Its also tank-like in its build quality; made almost entirely of nextel-coated aluminum, and is literally the most stable headphone I've ever worn thanks to its headband design. It's very comfy as well thanks to the incredibly supple pads. It's a bit pricey (~$260 on B&H Photo/Video) but it's the best at its price point, and better than a good handful above it.
If you want an alternative, you could go for the Sennheiser HD-25-II. Half the price but sacrifices bass, neutrality, build and overall sound quality. In your case, I'd probably go for the HD-25-II first, see if you like it, and if not get the DT1350.
Hope this helps.
