Jivan, Sandhurst Audiophile

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sublime sound quality for the price range. Bass is probably the best you can get around. Mids and Treble is still surprisingly excellent. Extremely comfortable ear-cushions. Can lessen input volume because they reduce the outside noise a bit so saves battery as well.
Bad points:
Dangerous to your ears if you put them too loud. This is the same with many I guess. I have developed slight tinnitus at night listening to my iPod at 75% loudness. Reduced to 50-60% now.

Danny, Leeds Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have never heard ANYTHING that sounds as good as these headphones. The bass delivery is immense and the high-end frequency range exceeds the human ability to hear! THE best hundred quid i ever spent. They are really well made, are extremely comfortable, and if you wanna give your ears an orgasm, here's the way to go.
Bad points:
Bad points... ...umm... was raining when i went to pick them up.

Purchaser Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Mind bending bass that fits in with rest of the range without causing any problems for beautiful sound quality.
Sounds fantastic with dubstep, drum and bass, death metal and even has the clarity for hectic black metal.
Sturdy metal construction. Won't fall apart like some other brands *cough* skullcandy *cough*.
The most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. Tenfold.
Flat tangle free wires actually work. I hope this becomes a widespread feature for headphones.
Bad points:
I have heard significantly better sound isolation (both inside out and outside in), but still very good. I wear them daily on a noisy bus with lots of people talking and I don't have any complaints.
95% of speakers and other headphones will now sound weak and pathetic.
Stupid comments from people about how big your headphones are.
