Pros: Clarity, Comfort, Soundstage

Cons: Could be a bit tighter fitting. (I do have a narrow head though)

These are just wonderful.

I had no idea what I was missing.

I've always listened to lossless music, but had no idea it could sound like this.

I run my music directly out of my 2011 Macbook Pro, and into these, using Audirvana Plus (iTunes integrated mode).

 

I also use these with my PS3.

I plug the PS3's optical audio out in to my surround sound system (Yamaha Amp), and turn the settings to 'straight'

and plug the headphones into the Amp's 1/4in headphone output jack.

 

Call of Duty is about 10x as addicting now.

The soundstage allows me to hear almost precisely where others are.

 

If they broke, I would just buy another pair of these same headphones.

You mean if they broke you'd buy an upper-tier Sennheiser ;)
