Emil, London DJ

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound reproduction for headphones of this price range. Simply cannot be beaten unless you want to spend a good £100 extra!! Also, they are quite comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time.
Bad points:
Build quality doesnt feel too solid. I had to return my forst pair because the entire jack connector came straight off!! apparently these were a one off faulty pair and I've had my replacements for a few months now with no problems. I'm still extra careful with them just in case.

Andy, Manchester Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The headphones are very good quality and have fantastic sound reproduction (especially after a lengthy burn-in process). They are very robust and can take the odd accidental drop or sharp tug of the coiled cable. I use my headphones mainly with my iPod Touch and my music sounds a lot better now and you can really define all of the individual instruments and different sounds and even hear background noises such as people talking in the studio etc which you wouldn't normally hear on your usual pair of earphones/headphones. They provide reasonable sound isolation but not great, although for walking along busy roads this is probably safer.
Bad points:
Although the headphones are vwery comfortable and don't clamp your head too much, because of the closed-back design they can make your ears very hot and sweaty, especially on hot days and with long useage. The burn-in process does take quite a while (I have read lots of other reviews and the overall suggested time is around 100 hours). You can of course get all of this out of the way over a couple of long sessions like I did by hooking up your headphones to a hi-fi and leaving a compilation CD running on repeat play (or an MP3 player on shuffle) for a few days.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Pretty much do exactly what I wanted them for. Clean, transparent sound. Mostly use them as studio monitors.
Bad points:
Feel slightly strange on the head, not sure if the band sits at the right angle on my head. But this might vary according to head shape!
