    Pros - Fairly long cord
    Cons - Sounds like an AM radio
    I ordered a set of used like-new ones from Amazon.com .. reading the 100+ reviews I thought these would be fairly decent set of headphones.  They sounded like an AM radio, or listening all your music in 11025Hz sample rate.  Mids and mid-bass were decent, but all the sparkle and highs were practically gone.  Stereo imaging was very good, but the sparkle and clarity of the highs were atrocious.  It had a decently long-ish cord, prolly 4 ft, cloth like sheathing.  I didn't listen to them very long, but they were pretty comfortable.
    For the price, save up for iGrados, or PMX100s .. maybe even PMX60s.
