Fantastic for the Music Studio
I've had two pair of these. Very true sound reproduction when compared to playing the music through top end audio monitors. Perhaps a bit more bass through the headphones, and I have 18" drivers in the monitors, but it is a very close match. Nice long coi

Strengths: compact, durable, great sound, cost effective, long cord, good base
Weakness: not noise canceling
This is a great paid of "dj style" headphones that are both comfortable and sound great! I've had these for over 6 years and they look in 8/10 condition except for minor wear/tear on ear padding. Not really meant for working out but great for pretty much anything else. Highly recommended!!!

Strengths: Light, comfy, great fidelity.
Weakness: Black dandruff from plastic cup pads.
I took a couple pieces of worn-out pantyhose (just ask your female friends) and used them as exterior covers over the "pleather". Quick and did the trick by keeping the black dandruff of doom off my face.

Strengths: sound is excellent, with tight low end, balanced full and flat spectrum, nice mids and crisp clear highs; a very accurate sound.
Weakness: none I have been able to determine

We have used many different higher-end headphones, and decided on these units as our standard recording studio phones. We have used and still use over a half dozen pairs purchased about 4 years ago. In spite of heavy usage by hard users in the studio and some live applications, the phones have stood up without fail or sound degradation. I think we destroyed one pair (it was the drummer) which repair/replacement of was handled well by the manufacturer. Our experience is if the sound source is good, ie., high quality, studio level amplifiers, analog or digital sound sources, they sound really good. If the sound is generated by MP3's,Ipods, ie., a lower bit sound, they still sound amazingly good, but due to their accurate sound reproduction, you can easily tell the difference with the sound sources. I wouldn't have it any other way. My experience is the sound is accurate, which is my primary criteria. I hear things with these phones that I have not heard with some other high-end phones, which is vital to my use. I recommend these phones with the highest recommendation.

This is my second pair. My 1st...
Weakness: ear pads
This is my second pair. My 1st pair was purchased in 1988 and is STILL going strong! I was looking around for a 2nd pair of headphones, and did my reasearch... these are still as highly rated and competitive as the ones I bought 17 years ago!! Only drawback are the earpads. Just replace them with the EDT 250 V from beyerdynamic and you're done!!
