Pros: Clean low end, fun to listen to, detailed sound, high quality, light.

Cons: Clamping, bad with glasses.

I love my HD25-1 II Headphones. They are, in my opinion the perfect portable headphone. I am not a huge fan of on-ear headphones but I do quite enjoy them. The sound quality is addicting, they are easily driven by an iPod or iPhone and have quite a bit of low end (perfect for modern electronic music), but when put on a proper amp the low end levels out the headphone becomes much more accurate.

 

The only real problem I see with them is they have quite a clamping force and when put on with glasses can become very uncomfortable. I use them for a max of 2 hours.

The clamping force issue should be non-issue since it's easily resolved for this and other headphones. All you have to do is gently bend out each side, every inch or so, to relieve the clamping pressure. You can start at the portion that goes on your ear and work upward. If you bend it too much, you can just bend it back again.
