OK all, about a year ago there was a huge thread on just how good these headphones were - especially for the money. Of those that bought them, hiw many still feel that way and are still usung them regularly?

I do and am. They are still amazing.

I've actually read through the whole thread, and ended buying a pair of K81 DJs myself. I've bought other headphones since, but I still use them regularly. Very fun to listen to and engaging.

Still think K81DJ is good for the money, but not using mine regularly (on the fact that I don't use full size regularly anyway).

they were good "all-purpose" headphones... good for home and on-the-go. comfort was a problem, but it was solved after stretching the headband a bit

Got rid of mine fairly soon on. The bass was too strong for classical listening, and the overall quality inferior to the HD25-1s I replaced them with (and am still happily using).

Still have mine and they get lot's of head time with my Zune (indoors only) and in bed because of the low leakage. BTW I tried the blu-tak mod and thought it ruined a great can, so I reversed it. I think they're one of the best deals out there.

I purchased mine quite a while ago, 18 months+, but probably have not used them for at least a year. The SQ is good for the price, but I find them to be head clamp torture devices. Big head!!

My first and only set to date (that will change within a few days with my SR225 though).

Does it have weaknesses? Surely. But for starting out these have performed as well as I could have ever expected. I will probably never rid myself of this pair - after 5-6 months of listening to them nearly every day I have too much sentiment and appreciation.

I wouldn't use them for prolonged listening sessions, but they suit my mixing just fine. Great SQ with the ability to twist them in convenient ways. I don't care about the comfort cuz my attention is elsewhere, and their position is constantly shifting.

But yea.. circumaural phones for comfy-chair listening, please.

I'm not using them so much at the moment because I use them as portable only, and I can't be bothered to get them out for my 20-30 minute train travels to and from work.
Also, I've been finding the isolation too poor recently... used them whilst in a car today and too much lower-mid range got sucked away, leaving a bit too much of a scratchy high end.
I think I should look at some canal 'phones, especially now I can use the cheap ones that came with my new phone for comfort testing purposes.
