They are very comfortable to wear due to their lightness, you don't notice when you have them on. Their acoustic comfort is remarkable.
All music genres sound good due to their excellent response. They go very low and have very natural highs. The frequency spectrum is perfectly balanced.
You can wear them for hours without any fatigue. People who wear eyeglasses, like me, won't be uncomfortable with them because they don't put as much pressure on your head as the Sennheiser HD 25.
The headphones are pretty sturdy and all pieces are interchangeable. The cable is long, it doesn't get in the way and doesn't produce any noise.
The audio quality is excellent. Don't forget it's a standard reference in the professional world. They isolate you very well from the outside world and don't let any noise through. So you can work in your MIX without bothering the person next to you. You can choose between three different versions (in terms of power), depending on your studio work. The 250-OHM version is better suited for Mastering and Monitoring. But that's a matter of preference.
I've been using them for two years. They are versatile headphones for a pro or home studio.
I don't want to compare them to other headphones in the same category because it would be ridiculous. All headphones have their own color and particularities. There are quite a lot of good references at this price point (AKG, SENNEHEISER and others).
You need to try them and take the one that suits you best. It's your ears that decide. There aren't many rules.
So, in conclusion, a good choice that I would repeat without a doubt.
