>>> How long you use it?
Since 2000 ... Unfortunately he is preparing a mandatory retirement due to wear. See below ...

>>> What is special that you love the most, least?
The +:
-The space when folded
-Ease of use (it seems to put on his slippers in the ears ... ;) )
-Sound. I know, there is no consensus, but it is a reference for me, especially given the fact that I'm used to. I listen to everything with him. TV, music, mixes, mastering.Je know exactly how it sounds, and I think that's the key with any monitor system. The more you practice, the more you know, the more we know what to expect and how to interpret it.
-The electrical sensitivity

THE -:
-The weight that can tire a little after a few hours of use m ^ m if you get used to (like everything) and that, paradoxically, gives an impression of quality / robustness
-The quality over time. Foams are especially prone to breaking up a little too early for my taste considering the selling price at the time. For about 300 € paid at the time, I would have thought having a healthy use for over 10 years. Or, wear foam was felt after 3 or 4 years of use ...
-The price of replacement parts. € 80 for a foam right to multiply by 2 for both ears, it's worse than racketeering. And it does THAT circular foam that surrounds the ear. If one must also replace the thin foam that covers the HP must still shell out. Ditto for the cable guide to rubber at the base of the wire on the left ear. It is not given and in the end, we quickly for the price of a new headphone very good. That's why I'm going to have to solve his retirement ...
-To nitpick, the storage bag / transport which is a little cheap and could have been a little more protective given the price of the product.
-The sound reproduction in the bass sometimes a little soft. On the rock, it poses too many problems, but electro ...

Did you >>> tried many other models before buying it?
Some, yes. I have been practicing since 1988.

How do you >>> the price / quality ratio?
Rather just saw the new price and the rapid physical deterioration. But ultimately, it remains despite valiant more than 10 years of use altogether rather intensive. After that I kind of maniac with my gear, so I dare not imagine the careless hands. It remains a delicate headphones. I've always handled his kneecaps and joints with extreme caution despite a solid feel yet very present.

>>> With experience, you do again this choice? ...
In theory, yes. But as always, you can never be sure because time can see appear a new model that we would lie. So ...
