Considering that Tyll Hertsens thinks these sound better than the original Denon D1001 (http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/creative-aurvana-live-classic-reincarnate), I think this is a pretty good deal:

Great headphones. For $60 what I bought them for absolutely a great portable phone.. Some Denon D1001s on the cheap.! Good balance smooth  decent bass and comfort. Isolation could be better but not bad. Good all rounder for on the go. I would snap one if someone needs a good portable.

I've owned the D1001s twice.  I figure for $60 I should just keep them this time:P.

I had them over a weekend (last weekend, actually) and they do sound great. Perfect for movies, gaming, and bass heavy music (as long as you're not looking for hefty sub-bass). Unfortunately, I had to return them because they weren't really "circumaural" on my ears so I couldn't wear them for more than an hour. I'm still sad about it.

Interesting.  I noticed in Tyll's review that the pads were thicker than the Denons.  I hope that doesn't make them supraaural for me...

How would you rate them versus your other collection?  I am interested and these look quite a bit more portable than what I've got right now...perfect for airplanes perhaps?

These are great phones but the only issue I have with them are the Isolation or the lack there of..It is Ok with music on but you can hear stuff happening around you in lower volume, You need to turn it up to mid to loud in order to drown out side noise. I do have others that isolate better. If sound quality is priority over isolation than these are awesome but if isolation is a must. There are other portables that do a much better job isolating. Otherwise they are worth the money spent and even better at $60.

@Dsnuts, Thats probably the cause of the lack of isolation.
