These headphones are very lightweight, they weigh just about as much as my iPod Touch making it comfortable on my head. It's easy to adjust the headphones to your head. The cushions are really soft and the bass is amazing. They can get a bit warm on your head if you wear them for too long, but it's not a big problem. They look nice, feel nice and the cord doesn't tangle. I'd recommend these to anyone thinking about buying these whether you're just in you're room by yourself or somewhere noisy and you'll still be able to listen to your music.

This headphones has Near-Audiophile quality. I love it. I usually take of all the bass with my equalizer because I get headaches with the bass for some reason. In terms of everything this headphones is excellent, the price too. Leaving the equalizer on flat is the best to pure sound.

These are good headphones. I can hear things in my music that I wouldn't have noticed with regular apple earbuds. The bass is a bit strong though, you may need to adjust your equalizer settings. Very comfortable earpads. Good quality for the price. Recommended.

EDIT: About 1 year later now. I find I don't use these much because they're quite large and it's just so much more convenient to use earbuds on the go. Were I travelling a lot though I would probably use these because they block out sound reasonably well and the sound quality is so good.

Well, first off these headphones are the most comfortable over-the-ear headphones I ever purchased.
The cushions are so soft on the ears and don't hurt over time of listening.

Bass is as advertised and other ranges of sound are well balanced.

Only negative I have is the volume can be a little more and sound can have a little more punch.

But for the price, you can't go wrong.
These are excellent headphones.

These phones sound pretty good for the money. They aren't Bose quality but for the average user, they are just fine.
