Pros: Bass, build quality, cables, looks
Cons: Comfort, mids, highs, short straight cable
Sometimes I just need that bass, it's like an addiction but only comes every now and then. I brought these just for when I really need that bass but can't be annoying the living hell out of my neighbors with my speakers. 
I brought these headphones with the impression of amazing, overpowering bass and well I was quite disappointed. The bass extends really deep and well with no distortion, somewhat boomy but not enough impact. I was expecting the type of bass I get from my speakers which is controlled and very powerful and vibrates up my legs, while I certainly don't want my headphones rumbling on my head, there just is not enough power behind the bass. As far as headphones go, tons of good bass, can't really be comparing headphones with 2in drivers to speakers with 8in drivers getting WATTS not milliwatts of power. 
Comfort, where did you go??? Not comfortable at all, especially compared to my AKG's. The cups are too small and end up being on my ear. I replaced the pads with the M50 pads and while they are a little bigger, still too small for my huge ears. 
Included cables are nice but the straight cable is just 1ft too short for my needs. Great cables though, really good quality and they screw into the headphones for portable use. 
Note: I DO NOT use EQ's ever. 
Amp/DAC: Schiit Asgard 2/Bifrost
Pros: Great bass, build quality, decent highs and fairly decent mids
Cons: Newer model 68ohm (needs a bit more power), short cable, uncomfortable after a while, very uncomfortable pads..
I have had these now for a few months. I heard they had a very bass orientated sound but not so much that it ruins everything else. When i first purchased these i was a bit confused as to why they were 68ohm instead of the original 38ohm, but after exchanging emails with Audio Technica UK i found that the newer models of this particular headphone were now 68ohm. I was a bit disappointed at first as i was hoping to use these with my Samsung Galaxy S4 for casual listening when i wasn't using them for some mixing. I then went out and made a purchase on the Fiio E18 amp and the difference was quite noticeable. The bass was there but it wasn't overpowering everything else, the mids and the highs both sounded great and i was happy with the outcome. Previously, i had plugged these in to the powerful sound card that is the Asus Xonar Essence STX and was blown away by how good these actually were. They are extremely powerful and can handle whatever you throw at them. If you're a basshead who craves some bass these might be for you. But then again, i think the 38ohm version were slightly more bassy because these aren't bass powerful without some EQ. That didn't bother me though, the sound all in all is great and that low end packs a punch without messing with anything else. The build quality on these seems strong, loads better than my Sony MDR-V700 which snapped at the hinges (common problem with them)
The comfort, this is where these headphones fail, and fail miserably. I have noticed after a while they hurt the top of your head and you have to take them off for a few minutes. I have also noticed the ear pads are shallow and this can be annoying and uncomfortable. The cable is short and can be annoying if like me you listen to music from your computer. You can't really move anywhere else with these.
Just remember that some websites haven't updated the specifications on these headphones and when they state they're 38ohm they're probably actually 68ohm.
If you're looking for a powerful headphone that shines a bit better with an amp then get these, the bass is great but is well controlled.

you should take a shot at stuffing a few cotton balls under the lip. works pretty good at giving you a little more space as well as improving thump.
Hi. do you have any pictures of this? I have heard of people doing this but i will try it out and give it a go.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, excellent isolation
Cons: Head-crusher/squeezer (comfort)
I was looking for loud, very good isolating headphones having wide frequences response to use at my work. I currently use DT770/80 + Matrix M-Stage + replaced OPAMs. It gives me a very good quality, but isolation and loudness is not as I expected. At home I have Sens HD380 + Recon 3d for gaming. For music I use Fiioe17 + AKG550. 
So I decided to buy ATH-PRO700MK2 to check out if I can use it with Matrix at work. You know.... loud metal music with no complains from my fellows at work...
My 1st impresssion was: is it broken ? After using of HD380s, I though these cans can simply squeeze my head. But with ath-700mk2's... boy, I was able to listen no more then 25 minutes of music, ufff... :
- earpads cover 80% of my ears - I have to use my hands to put my ear to be covered by earpad....
- the headphones simply squeezes my head... the spring is so tight
- I was not able to use it for longer then 20-30 minutes...
BUT... THE SOUND IS REALLY GOOD. Excellent dynamics, low/middles/highs perfectly suit to rock/metal music. Loudness is excellent.
Now I have schizophrenic recommendation: sound is perfect, comfort is much lower then having 2 weeks trip in 1st World War submarine... I will leave the headphones in the most spread position for 1-2 nigths... I will see. 
PS: I am quite a guy (185cm/96kg), having a feeling of squeezed and hurt head somehow contradics the picture of those very attractive girls wearing ath's700mk2 and having a ear-to-ear smile.
