These headphones are a bargain. After countless positive reviews I took a chance on these and am generally impressed. I, like most others, had to purchase based on reviews since Ultrasone has no retailers in my area. The reviews were bang on.

My criteria were:
-closed cans (good isolation, low to negligible leakage, compact enough for travel).
-efficient (easy to drive, high sensitivity)
-FUN frequency response, with engaging sound.

I have a set of open air ATH-AD700's which have absolutely shining mids and detailed highs but are void of bass. They are about as portable as an agoraphobic. I listen to strings and vocals at home though so I needed something for electronic and dub out and about. For this purpose these are fantastic.

Real quickly I'll just say that both style and build quality are absolutely superb. Feels German: tight and clinically engineered. Both isolation and leakage are at least par for the course. Listening to these at moderate to high volume on a red-eye flight will be a non-issue. Some people have commented on comfort but for my average sized head and ears they are excellent. Not as soft on the skull as the ATH-M50 but not as hot either. Overall a non-issue once again. Cord length is a little long for a portable can, but that's by no means a deal-breaker.

Based on reviews I was expecting the following from these headphones:
-good, punchy, accurate bass response.
-life-like, sparkly highs.
-somewhat recessed mids.
-above average soundstage.
-overall a fun and engaging sound.

It was all true.

At first listen these were actually fairly disappointing: hollow and even tinish comes to mind.

Well the Ultrasone HFI-580's came in today. Guess this is a good as place as any to write my opinion. They sounded so good I had to share. :)

First impression of them. They're very meaty, much meatier than the inexpensive Koss UR-15C I was using prior. (A $20 pair of headphones (when I bought them).) The Koss don't sound "bad" per-se, especially since they've been through multi-hundred hours of burn-in, and have settled in to sound as good as they can.

The looks are very bold, and they look very impressive close up. They may be targeted towards the more edgier crowd, as they're very "in-your-face" and don't have as a muted appearance as some other higher-end phones. Could be good or bad on your point of view, personally I really like it.

Now, the sound. Since comparing it to the Koss is a travesty in and of itself (as it utterly dominates them), my other comparison comes from Sony MDR-710 LP ($70 when I bought them, Ultraportable supra-aural headphones. Owned for going on 2 years.)

Now the Sony's sound pretty darn good, but they are supra-aural versus the Ultrasone and Koss which are circum-aural. The Sony are the reason I decided to purchase these Ultrasone, because they really opened up how a decent pair of headphones can really change the way you listen to things. I have also owned a great many cheap earbuds and circum-aural headphones in my life($5 - 10), so I know how the sound stacks up to cheapy's too.

Being circum-aural has advantages because of attenuation of outside noise. I first thought about gushing about how awesome they sound, but then I decided some actual thought out impressions would be more helpful.

Verified Purchase
I have had these headphones for a few weeks now and I absolutely love them, they sound amazing. Put simply they sound like movie theatre speakers/club speakers.

**IMPORTANT** They have a "V" shaped sound curve, which means the lows/bass are forward, mids are recessed and highs are forward. They are FANTASTIC for techno, rap and for my tastes good for hard metal. For music with mostly mids, like jazz, classical, orchastra ect these are not ideal. That being said I still love listening to soundtrack/orchastra music on these, it sounds way better on these than on my macbook pro speakers. The bass is always loud but is not overpowering or muddy.

PROS
Sound quality throughout the sound spectrum, BASS if you love bass get these!! Build quality, 5 year warranty, They go LOUD, decentralized drivers reduces listening fatigue/hearing damage(Ultrasone claims 40% less and I agree), Surround Sound does work well, very good sound isolation (keeps your music in and cuts background noise).

CONS
Comfort is mediocre, they are not uncomfortable but can become uncomfortable if you listen for extended periods of time. Portability, the cord is 10ft long, and is not detachable. Long burn in time, Ultrasone says 50 hrs.

DETAILS

Lows/Bass, As said before the lows are incredible. They can produce a phenomenal loud rumble, that is lower than my macbook pro speakers can go. The bass is loud and VERY punchy, at moderately loud volumes I can feel the bass kick in my ears. They are incredibly fun to listen to, especially with techno music, the BOOM BOOM is addictive. Bass guitar sounds great on these too, loud, punchy and much lower and less flat than it sounds on my macbook pro.
