Pros: Durable construction of the unit itself
Cons: Not really a knock on the product but I ended up about 5 months into it I accidentally gave the cord a very good tug in my receiver (see other thoughts) and had to splice the wire and soler a new audio jack into it. Works beautifully still.
Other Thoughts: I own the ATH-M50SLE (Special Limited Edition) it's the same driver just ascetically different. Silver and blue without the coiled cord. Honestly, If I could go back and get basic black with the coil I'd do so in a heartbeat. I'm always detaining my cord I'm glad they gave me a huge amount of slack it's just not really suited for what I need.
