Pros: Great for electronic music, for amateur mixing, affordable price, closed build, suitable for street use as well, highly sophisticated visual design
Cons: The cable lock could be tighter
My first and only high quality headphones. I use it at home for listening to music, home mixing, gaming and watching movies, but I use it with my iPod as well in the street, at public transport, etc. I wanted something at a reasonable price, suitable for home listening and mixing (mainly goa trance, chillout, trip hop). Closed build was also an important issue, since I hate people on public transport forcing me to listen to the sounds of their ****ty music, just don't want to become one of them, not to speak of how great it is to insulate external sounds while travelling for example . The spiral chord is really handy, I haven't had any problems with it, the jack lock could be a little tighter though, occasionally I unlock it accidentaly (you have to turn it 90 degrees, happens like once in two month :-), but it's not a serious issue. I had the best experience while listening to the genres mentioned above, but sometimes i use it for rock, metal or punk and they sound quite good as well. Haven't had any technical problems so far (in one year). The visual design is just the icing on the cake. Pure elegance and modern look combined.
