Rated 5 out of 5 by RIPShulgin Best headphones I've ever owned. Incredibly accurate, no distortion at higher volumes.
I wanted a pair of good headphones as my girlfriend is pregnant and times are changing (no more loud music over speakers). I have to say these have not disappointed, astonishing quality. A word of warning though, these headphones will reveal inadequacies in recordings so make sure your collection is 320Kbps, FLAC or uncompressed to get the most from them. They are very comfortable and highly adjustable to make sure you get the best noise cancelling fit. A point to watch out for is that the ear cup is fairly small, luckily I have small ears and they are fine for me, I imagine some people with large ears will have an issue with the circumaural fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robertcasio Incredible headphones for mixing and reference
These are amazing. If you are looking for some trustworthy studio headphones to check mixes on, or make mixes with, definitely consider these. Although obviously not intended to replace high end studio monitors in a professionally treated room, they do come very close.
First mix translated really well onto any system I tried it on. Stereo imaging and accuracy of frequency response is spot on.
If I'm being really picky then the very high end could be a tad more precise, but that's being REALLY picky - it's more than adequate to produce a professional mix on as it is. Any issues up there are easily ironed out if you are checking through another system, and will be so slight that they are of no real concern if the mix will be mastered anyway.
I've been mixing records and music for broadcast for over 10 years, and considering the level of accuracy you get for the money, these are easily one of the best monitoring / mixing purchases I've ever made. I'd actually pay more they are that good!
