I looked around for a review on these and didnt find many, so bought a pair and heres what i found out.

 

 - Nice build quality

 - Good comfortable fit

 - Worst cable design I have ever seen (wtf were they thinking?!)

 - Easy to be driven

 - Extremely well defined mids & highs (these are not laid back and softsounding!)

 - Good soundstage and dynamic range (not excelent)

 - The lows are great

 

If I had to describe these in one word: Balanced. They have tendency to have a more forward sounding character, but not even close to a grado. They do require some burn in time

Not sure if balanced is the right word. I remember them being on the bassy side, very warm.
Built like a tank, these can last a lifetime.
Cable was just fine, thicker than average. Length was short without the extension though.
Street price is more like $50 but they are not so common anymore.
