Pros: Great detailed sound and good bass
Cons: Design, fit, comfort, cable, form factor...
These weird phones... 
A former roommate gave them away. After some cleaning and some tip-fitting, I tried them, and wow, they sounded great! Lots of detail and bass. But they also hurt my ears. And the cable... damn... And the size of the earbuds... damn... Hence the title: love and hate relation.
