Great to see some headphone action from AH other than Monster Beats . They are nice headphones. A little to pumped up in the bass response for my tastes but I can see why they are very popular - probably the most popoular closed headphone in this price range for the head-fi crowd - they do have great build quality as well. Comfort is always an issue with me with closed headphones and the "clamping" sensation is hard to get over. If you shop around on the interwebs you can get these for much less than $200. More between $100-$140. Definitely a headphone to consider when shopping.
