4 out of 5 eggsPretty Comfy, not pretty

Pros: Comfortable
Great full sound

Cons: Not very pretty
Cord will be a problem

Other Thoughts: These seem like good headphones, especially for the price. I think I could wear them in the studio all once I get used to them. My unbreakable Panasonic headphones with a similar range of response finally broke. I wish I would have let go of them sooner. These are more comfortable and sound better. There's a nice clarity in this pair of headphones.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent listening experience

Pros: Good reproduction, excellent through sound range. Doesn't matter what type of music you listen to. Good length of line so that headphones can be some distance from the source.

Cons: Makes one ear a little sore with extended use.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Crisp highs, tight bass.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Like most high-end headphones, they need a break-in period. Do not expect stellar bass performance until you've had at least 50 hours of use.

5 out of 5 eggsAKG is Winning

Pros: Makes the sound good. Crisp highs; it delivers an excellent, rich music experience.

Cons: I would have liked if the cord was separate. One too many times have headphones been irreparably ruined by a destroyed cord that could have easily been fixed if the manufacturer just installed a jack.

Other Thoughts: They're comfortable, but not quite to the wearing them all day comfort level. Maybe my ears are just sensitive, but wearing them day in and day out makes them sore. Considerably less than have other brands in the past.

They're a few years old, sure, but don't that discourage you, the low price makes them an absolute steal.
