Pros: Excellent sound for the price.
Cons: Bass is slightly lacking but is present.
I happened to get these cans for $55 at that price I'd say they're well worth it. I preformed the foam mod about 10 minutes ago and, yes, I certainly noticed a difference. They've opened up a bit. My $55 purchase just became a greater value.
This is my first pair of audiophile headphones, and, unfortunately for my bank account, not the last.
put simply, if you're on a budget and need some good cans at a good price, these will be your huckleberry.
Where'd you get these for $55? I've been trying to find a pair under $60 for months now.
Refurbs off of Amazon from a Sennheiser authorized retailer
Don't get scared off by the "refurbished" part. These cans were brand new, minus the box and manual. They looked like they were never worn.
Wow, that is some nice amazon dealer!

Pros: Sennheisser are consistently good, well priced and perform well.
Cons: Could be better, cheaper and poor stock cable.
 Not much to say in this review. These are a great set of headphones for the price, they sound good straight out the box but great after being burnt in. The 'foam mod' makes these better again, essentially turns them into a pair of HD 595's which is great for the money. Good treble and mids but the bass can be a little muddy and drown out certain aspects of the music, one cause of this is probably my xonar sound card.

Pros: Sound clarity, realism, price, entry-level
Cons: Price
This is my first review here, so I thought it'd be on my first pair of Audiophile headphones.  After getting these things, I almost immediately found this forum and did the foam mod.  It sounded better, and that's when I got hooked.  I then adventured and did the soundstage mod and it made these sound even better.  At 6 months usage, these headphones are very nice for the price.  I can't imagine what higher priced phones must sound like, but I don't want to know so I am stopping with these phones.  They are more than enough clarity for my games, music, movies on my computer.  I am thinking about adding a small amp but I am unsure yet, doing more research first.
