I bought these headphones about a week ago. Out of the box, they sound decent, but need to be broken in to really open them up. The bottom end is very limited yet, but that should change in time. I listen to all types of music. These headphones excel at classical music and other types of acoustic music. Listening to classic rock, dance and other electronic-heavy music was a tad disappointing, as the bass is absent. The mids and highs are awesome, however. They are very comfortable and don't squeeze your head to death. I wish it had a detachable cord. No real complaints about these headphones. I will write another review after they have been broken in.
