Pros
Great sound quality and very comfortable to wear.
Cons
The mini jack converter to fit in your smart phone does not insert  fully depending on the phone case you have on your phone. Must modify the case or remove it so I can listen to the tunes on my phone.
Summary
These headphones are fantastic. Excellent sound quality, very clear vocals, deep enough base and they crank pretty loud too. I bought them from NCIX and they were delivered exactly when they said they would be. I was fortunate to get them on sale. I've told a few friends and they've tried them on so now they're waiting for these headphones to go on sale so they can buy a pair too.

Pros
-Comfort
-high range
-responds well to EQ changes
-3.5mm extension is replaceable
-flexible long cable, feels like silicone and is quite soft
Cons
-Connector is huge for 3.5mm jack (already managed to bend it)
Summary
This headphones are far more comfortable than my Audio Technica M50's that they replaced, I actually like how light they are, and I don't really mind the plastic. I like that the earcups can be raised or lowered to sit anywhere on your head, whereas my other pair of headphones never fit right. I did bend the connector on accident because it stuck so far out the front audio jack of my computer. Luckily it was just the adapter, which can be easily and cheaply replaced.

Audio quality is good, base burn in improves the lower end much more than hearing it out of the box. I use an EQ to crank out more base, which the headphones seem to respond to quite well. These headphones really shine for mids and high vocals. They are very satisfying to wear for hours, as I listen to them for 8 hours straight at my computer, often even longer as I'm a gamer and coder at home, and a Power Engineer at work... so these see lots of use. So far so Good!

Pros
Very Confortable
Good sound stage
Bass is OK
Price (got a nice deal)
Cons
Open air (no isolation)
Too much plastic
Will not play very loud without distorsion
Very long cord (could include a shorter one)
Summary
So far I really like them for the price I paid them ($160)
I was hesitating between the HD 558 and the HD 598 but I didn't like the HD 598 color and the extra money didn't seem to give a big difference. I will also check for the HD 558 Mod too see if it worth it.

The bass is ok but not as powerfull as the Shure E535 but the bass is clean and tight. The mid's are pretty good with a wide soundstage. If you play these headphone very loud then you start to loose soundstage and get some distorsion. But at normal listening their fine.

Wish they would have less plastic.

Like all speaker they need break-in period of around 200 hours. At the moment there playing 24/7 FLAC files from my Creative ZX soundcard and I was surprise that I could wear them several hours without fatigue and the more I listen to them the better they get.

Get them in special around $150 but at normal price they are a bit on the pricey side.

Pros
Great sound, great clarity, comfy, got it at a good price
Cons
No short cable included, could be more "open"
Summary
Paired with a Fiio Alpen E17, this thing sounds way better than my old (and good) Samson SR850 (which are still a fantastic value) and feels so good.

The sound is crisp and nice, and while the bass could use some boost, it is clear and will never drown anything.

At the price I got them (170$ CAD), I think they are a really good choice!

Pros
light, warm sound, good for gaming
Cons
not the best for music
Summary
got this on sale, and must say it's a nice open can headphone for movie and gaming because it has a wide sound stage. Need a sound card with headphone amp to max its potential

Pros
great soundstage, mids, highs, treble
Cons
needs a dedicated soundcard for gaming
Summary
got these price matched, generally happy with them. I am no audiophile but they do lack bass if you are gaming especially look into the adh 700x, unless you want to pay the extra buck and get a sound card for your system than these are great.

Pros
-comfort
-quality
-designed for big ears
-no sweaty lobes!
-around the ear
-plush headband and muffs
Cons
-not collapsible
-long cable
-open ear means lots of sound leakage
-huge 1/4 to 1/8 plug
Summary
Overall these cans are pretty awesome for the money. Not quite audiophile quality but very good for the average person listening to 256 or 320 MP3's. Tried them out with some FLAC tunes and can hear the difference between listening to MP3's. Recommended!

-look nice
-feels like your there
Cons
-needed headphone amp then again to be expected at this price range
Summary
I got theese headphone and love them its like everything come alive and you fell like your there aswell I would reccomend using a headphone amp becasue without the base is kinda lacking to just being there but with one man they come alive and sing so because of this i wouldnt use on a phone unless you have a portable headphone amp.Additionally, theese are realy comforatlbe.

Pros
Super comfortable. Awesome sound.
Cons
Don't wear in public unless you want everyone to hear them lol.
Summary
These headphones are super comfortable with the velour ear pads and headband. Fits my head like a glove. Sound quality is great with punchy bass and treble. Lightweight, removable ear pads in case you want to clean or replace them.

After about a year and a half of use they still perform and look brand new. Bought mine on sale for 199.99 which is a steal imo.

Pros
Lightweight, with foam earcups and band on top of the head.
Cable can be detached from the headset.
Excellent clarity in sound.
Cons
Very long cable.
Summary
Paired this with a xonar dg soundcard, and it sounds great. In terms of comfort, they are good out of the box. Note that I wear a size large helmet for sports, and this headset is still comfortable and not tight.

I'm using this for all at-home PC activities (games, music, movies, etc) since I prefer IEMs when out and about.
