Pros: Great sound, specially the bass, and it can be used with mobile phones and still get a great sound
Cons: After some hours it can turn to be uncomfortable, the earpads are a bit too small for over-ear headphones . Non-detachable cable
After reading lots of reviews I decided to buy this headphones. Everyone said they had a great sound quality, and they were right. I have tried some high quality headphones such as Bose Quietcomfort 15, and Audiio-Technica's sound quality is better.
I'm a bass-guitar player and due to that I really want headphones with a good bass quality, but still with a good quality in the rest of the spectre. In that this headphones work perfectly.
For thier value this are between the best headphones avlaible. Also they have a good passive noise blocking. You can "feel" some one is speaking, so you can pay attention to it or simply ignore it and keep listening to music
When it comes to the design you can tell by the photos they are very pretty. They are made of plastic with leather (or pleather, I'm not sure) on the headband and the ear pads. This earpads don't look like they can be easily replaced, but there's no need to.
The comfort of this headphones is OK. They hold your head strongly, and that is good for me, you can be sure they won't fall. When you put them you can feel that fitting your ears inside the pads can be a bit tricky, as they are too small for being over the ear headphones. They are the minimum size for headphones of this kind.
Once you put you ears inside properly they will be very comfortable for some hours, but after 4 hours or more it will start to be painful. I guess that if you have big hears it will be worse.
An other special thing of this headphones is that they are clasified as portable by Audio-Technica. This traduces not only to having those small earpads as it also means they have a small power consumption. This means they can't only be plugged to computers, as studio headphones, they can also be plugged to the mobile phone with nearly no loss of sound quality (I haven't been able to hear the difference). A bad thing about them is that even though they are classified as portable, they don't have any kind of case.
At last the cable is non-detachable, which means that when it breaks (it's usually the first thing to break), you will have perfect but useless headphones. Also the cable doesn't look very strong, it's a normal quality. The good thing about it is that it is an "L" shaped cable, which usually lasts longer.
To sum up, overall great headphones with not that great comfort and cable.
