Pros: Great sound, accurate, durable,

Cons: pleather pads stiffen quickly

I've had a pair for about 4 years now wear them daily while working. They're extremely durable, although the oils from your head get absorbed into the ear pads and they stiffen up, not a problem if you're the only person wearing them since they mold to your head.  Occasionally I'll buy new earpads but its not that big of a deal for me.

They are the best bargain out there. They need an equalizer boost around 3.5 kHZ to 5 kHZ, and then they sound as good as much more expensive headphones. Look online, and you can find the frequency response curve for these headphones. They need that slight midrange boost to correct for recessed midrange, but then they sound as good as headphones costing much more. I have them, and they are absolutely fantastic.
