I've been using it for over two years. I also have Sennheiser HD477 and HD215. I chose these headphones after listening to them one hour at the store. Pros: comfortable (also during long runs), even though I think there are more comfortable ones. It's a closed model but the sound comes through pretty loud. The cable is quite long. I had a problem with the 1/4" connector very quickly and I had to replace it. Sound: present lows but not overemphasized. The mids are a bit "masked," perhaps it lacks transients in this frequency range. The high-frequency response is beautiful, with a lot of air. The highs are not too present, just well balanced. I get more highs from my monitor speakers (Resolv 65A). The stereo imaging is very clear: you can clearly hear where all instruments are placed. Very good to manage a reverb effect. Very nice sound deepness. The main advantage of these headphones is that you can hear almost the same as what you hear with speakers. The price is rather high, but the product is worth it. Generally, if you want high-quality gear, you must also pay a higher price. I would buy them again, even though there are many other valuable products on the market!
The low-mids are nice and allow me to make better mixes than my speakers. I use them more and more for mixing and "mastering." It's not the best solution but it's better than with my Resolv monitors...

I tried full headphones before, had even fallen for sony mdr but had dropped ... since I tried other headphones with friends, they are people who are very good too (little) but why change because in addition to me, super comfortable
Well, obviously it depends on the head but joke to share very comfortable, lightweight, comfortable, after hours no worries, they serve me all the recording mix.
Very solid, I have over 5 years (I think 8) and always the same sound, detachable cable and recently changed so years after ...
In addition to a sound insulation top IT IS ACCURATE, simply. Faithfully transcribed in a neutral way, which surprised me the most, my recordings and for any type of music.
Subject to have good speakers, you hear in the headphones is what will come out on top.
on the other hand I put this as excellent rating because I'm so used to my little akg ... I'm sure there are better and more but probably much more expensive anyway.
