The padding is very comfortable, and there is very little pressure felt on my head.

The headphones are very well balanced with clear yet strong bass, crisp highs, and the best mid reproduction I've ever heard.

I've been using the ATH-M50s for several hours each day at work, and these are far better. They are more comfortable, the separation is better, and the mid range is more prominent, with no loss of treble or bass. I've been listening to classical (primarily Mozart's symphonies and piano concertos) and classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, etc.) and they are more enjoyable across the board.

Before settling on these, I also tried Audio Technica's ATH-AD900 and beyerdynamic's DT 880 (250 ohm version). I can't get to a silent listening area, so these closed-back headphones work better for me. I found the ATH-AD900s to have almost painful treble and the beyerdynamic's too hard to drive and with sound quality comparable to the ATH-M50s.

In general, I've found these to be both the most comfortable and best sounding set of headphones of the 4 pairs I've tried. Highly recommended.

These are a great pair of headphones, they sound great for music and gaming(positional audio) with a good sound card. I am using these with the Creative "Titanium HD" on my PC and am very pleased with how it sounds.

So, how does it sound?
----------------------------------------------
The A900x sound output from these headphones is crisp, clean, and quite accurate while the sound stage is very wide. The sound quality is overall balanced and easy to drive. The headphones block out a lot of noise which is nice too.

Are they comfortable?
----------------------------------------------
I've ready many people say they are uncomfortable, I disagree, they fit softly over my head and I couldn't be happier. I do have one thing that bothers me, the flap-wings could be tighter over my head, it slips down slightly; I have a small head.

How is the build quality?
----------------------------------------------
Overall I'd say excellent, the headphones as a whole look quality built. The aluminum housings for the sound drivers are nice and feel solid. The pleather is very soft and comfortable for long sessions. The black finish on these headphones makes them look very nice.

----------------------------------------------

Music: (the most important part, right?)
I have had the M50s as well as a couple decent (less than $75) Sony ear buds and I am blown away with the quality of these headphones. The music is amazingly clear and balanced, it works well with everything from Chick Corea to Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, or Daft Punk. The headphones are very well balanced with clear yet strong bass, crisp highs, and the best mid reproduction I've ever heard. Basically, I feel like I am in the studio and have heard details in music I have never heard before. While am not an "obsessive" audiophile, I am a musician and do consider myself an "entry level" audiophile.

Comfort:
The 'wing' clamp are very comfortable and better than a straight bar like the M50s. A personal thing I like is the material on the wire, it is not rubber coated, but rather that nylon style fabric wrap that is found on high quality AV components. This means that the wire won't get snagged on anything and will resist bending too much.

Overall:
Very happy with the purchase!

Personal notes:
Try to pair them up to a headphone amp (I'm using the Fiio E6) to truly experience the quality. Also, there is no case/bag included and the headphones don't fold up or rotate to slim them down, this makes travel slightly inconvenient, but as these were not advertised as portable no points can be deducted.

Here's what you need to know if you want to buy these headphones:

- These and other headphones in the same price range are the best you'll ever need if you don't keep track of things like the kbps of your music and you don't use an external amp. They are still audiophile-grade, but other headphones do outclass them in the 350-500 dollar range. I enjoy them very much and they fit my mp3-quality music quite well.

- You will either love or hate its construction. Instead of a normal headband, the A900X headphones us a "3-D wing design," which utilize two low-pressure wings to keep the phones on your head. Some people find them irritating, but I love them. These headphones feel like clouds, though the pressure on the wings is low enough to make the phones slide down a few millimeters.

- All of the other headphones I've tried had shrill highs, to the point where low-volume vocals would hurt my ears. These headphones are nice and soft, though other reviews say the highs are their [still very strong] weak point.

I love these headphones, but I would not suggest you buy them without driving off to a Best Buy and trying them alongside the Audio Technica ESW9As and the AKG K550s. The three are of the best for closed headphones at this price range, and there is nothing anyone can tell you that will fully describe the differences between them.

They're fantastic for high vocals, low vocals, acoustic instruments, electric guitars, orchestras, electronic pop (Owl City, Zero 7), dubstep, and everything else I've thrown at them. Test them out if you want a full, rich, soft sound [especially at low volumes], you don't plan on using them while walking, you love soft pads and a clamp-free fit, and $200 sounds like a perfect price for high-quality headphones. I think they look pretty darn cute when they're on your head, too, and they make you look like someone who really knows their music.
