5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: These headphones are well tuned to perform straight out of the box. The bass is there, the mids are clear, and the highs are are acceptable. Obviously, these aren't meant to go toe-to-toe with $150+ headphones, but I don't believe that you will find a more cost effective solution for the quality that you get.

Cons: The only real cons that I have come down to personal preference.
-I prefer velour, these only come with pleather.
-The clamping force is just a little too high for extended comfortable use (2+ hours)

Other Thoughts: If you are on a tight budget, are unwilling to spend a lot on a headset, or are just looking for a cheap travel companion, these headsets are for you. They perform well, don't break the bank, and, if you do break them, they are easy to replace.
You should also consider the 668B. They only cost about another $10 and the added value may be worth it to you.

5 out of 5 eggsHD681 Open Back Headphones

Pros: The HD681 is a great buy for the price. Right out of the box, the bass is warm and not overpowering, the mids are great, and the highs are pretty decent (though, not great). They are surprisingly comfortable and very durable. I have dropped them a few times and they've bumped into my desk several times and they don't show any wear.
The included accessories are a nice touch. They fit nicely in he included carry bag and the 1/4" adapter is of good quality: It uses threads to secure itself and there are enough threads that slipping and stripping shouldn't be an issue.

Cons: The clamping force on these are just a little high for my liking. I don't notice it until after a couple of hours, but they do become fatiguing. The included earcups are nice, but I personally prefer velour (I didn't factor this into my rating because it is a preference). No in-line volume adjustment.

Other Thoughts: If you have a few extra bucks, I would recommend the HD668B instead: It has the features that the 681s are lacking. However, if you are like me and don't really care about the few cons that I listed, then these are probably the best value headphones that you are going to find.
