5 Star Review   By member walterbriney - Jul 15, 2007   

Strengths: Clear sound over all frequencies, capable of handling loud and soft sounds without distortion, long audio plug cable, very comfortable, adjustment to head size is hassle-free.

Weakness: Extended wear tends to make my ears sweat.

I use these headphones primarily for music enjoyment in a fixed environment (meaning I don't wear them on the train/plane/etc...). I have also used these for 3d-gaming and they work just as well there. As a note, if you use them with your PC and want the best sound quality, plug the phones directly into your PC's headphone output. These should be enjoyed as your primary transducer--I originally made the mistake of plugging them into my speakers' headphone port, which places an amplifier circuit between the PC and the phones (bad idea unless you either like extra noise in your signal or have high-end speakers). I have found these in recording studios, and you can often see them in music videos of big budget artists that take place in the studio. I don't think these headphones have an equal when it comes to comfort. The head size adjustment cleverly occurs automatically as you pull the headphones down over your head and over your ears.
