I've had this for about 6 or 7 years.

This pair of headphones is open, despite appearances: if you look carefully you can see all the little holes on each side. So forget about using this for recording, this is purely for listening. You can hear all that's going on around you and people around you can hear the music, even when listening at low volume.

I've had the Audio Technica ATHM-40, a closed pair made for tracking but they were no good for mixing or anything, really, so i sold them and now i'm using this for mixing or for checking mixes, and i have a cheap pair of Sennheiser HD-201's for tracking: they're closed enough and although they're rubbish they're more reliable soundwise than the ATHM-40! I shudder to think that i paid £75 for those... :-|
Have tried the Sony 7506 and compared to this they're rubbish. Of course, they are closed too so you don't use them for the same applications, but i've never heard better phones than these. They were £130 when they came out (200 €) so you'd expect them to be quite good...

I paid a lot less (£70) so i'd say the value is good. Yes, i would definitely buy them again.

They are extremely comfortable...to the point that you forget you're even wearing them!
The sound is never tiring, always detailed & precise, very airy. It's a pleasure to listen with these, but your source better be perfect or else...

The only thing i can think of that i don't like about these is the slight lack of bass. But as long as you know you shouldn't add any bass in your mix, then you're ok. You can hear anything that's going wrong with these.

Overall, an EXCELLENT pair of phones. If you come across something as good as this but closed then please drop me a line! Everything else i've tried has let me down...
