Search around, there are threads on them, they get a mixed review, some people love them, some dont like them.  I owned them 2 times and decided i dont like them, here is some reviews.

If you are not treble-sensitive and don't have a small face, chances are you might like them.

 

Side-note... I hope you don't plan on using them as a portable (huge cable)

I really like the K550. It's a large headphone that you must get a good seal with in order to enjoy the bass. It's not as bass light as I felt after reading some reviews. It has a nice bass slam and is amazingly open sounding for a closed can!!

 

Treble is stronger than the Senn HD600 but less than the K701/601. I like its balance a lot, but harsh recordings will sound harsh.... and not be smeared over by them.

 

Build is brilliant. Very tough headphone. I like them a lot.
