Pros: Durable design, thumping bass, adjustable for cable and headband

Cons: Limited soundstage, price

A great set of portable closed cans for the go.  With a lower impedance than their predecessors these headphones can be run of nearly any source.  Although the sound stage is limited the overall sound quality is quite pleasing.

Thanks for the review - not many people seem to have these yet!
I purchased and returned in a week. It's not that they are a bad headphone, but the sound quality doesn't match the price, particularly the lack of detail in the mids and lack of "oomph" in the bass. I loved the blue aluminum cups, but not for $150 more than the HD25 II with little or no audible sonic improvement.
I wouldn't say lack of "oomph" in the bass as I personally thought they were fairly bass heavy.
I've found the bass to be perfectly good. It fell in between my HFI-580s and my HD589s. Leaned more towards the Ultrasones. Considering an fiio17 or some other small amp, and start a nice portable budget setup. Going to see how well I can do without touching an apple product.
Might even buy a set of HD-25 pads and see how that can affect the sound.
