5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, can be uncomfortable

Pros: These sound great and compare favorably with my Sennheiser HD650s. They have a little more "sparkle" than the Sennheisers and are very clean and detailed. I'm using them with a Matrix M-State headphone amp which will drive them to ear damaging levels with no distortion. Thankfully, they sound amazing at reasonable volume levels also. Mine are not completely "burned in" according to the recommendations I've read of 200 or more hours, but sound great already. I'm a little skeptical of the "burn in" phenomenon, but went ahead and left them playing for a few days. If they get better than they are now, that will only be icing on the cake. I like the choice of using the longer cable which allows me to sit on my sofa and comfortably listen to them without having to worry about the length of the cable. I couldn't discern any difference in sound quality between the short and long cables. I like the look and color scheme of them, but the lime green might not be fore everybody. I also owned some AGK 240 MK II phones which were very good, but these are a huge step up from those in terms of overall sound quality, bass, and distortion free listening.

Cons: The earpads are quite comfortable, and the overall fit is good, but the headband is pretty stiff and has bumps on it that dig into my head. I can actually feel corresponding bumps in my skin after a listening session. It's not painful and not very noticeable while listening, but when you take them off your head might feel a bit weird where they were pressing on it.

Other Thoughts: If you research these, they are basically the same as the K701 and K702 (one reviewer performs tests showing nearly identical response curves). I liked the option of having the detachable cables in two different lengths.
