These are by far the least comfortable head phones I have ever owned.
But the second point is so outweighed by the first that it doesn’t matter. I mean, the clarity, its ridiculous. The range. The punchy but not over whelming bass. I listen to almost every type of music imaginable, from Skrillex to Chopin, and when I got these bad boys I had to re-listen to all of my music all over again. What was old became new and I just got lost in it.
Still, they are uncomfortable, and I am giving them five stars anyway. They won’t make you ears fall off but they do exert a lot of force on the side of your head. I don’t know, maybe its because I have big ears, but it starts to hurt after a while.
Moral of the story is, buy them.
As for comfort, you simply have to break these headphones in a little bit for it to feel good (use them for about a week). The reason why i say this is because the speakers pop out slightly inside the cup, this causes parts of my ears to hurt a little after listening to songs for about 30min. Another thing is that the headband kinda feels tight but its cushioning compensates for that.
Dont worry, after using these for about a week i havent really felt any more discomfort with these headphones.
I listen mainly to electronic music on these, they are definitely the right pair of headphones for the job.
Id recommend these headphones to just about anyone, they are really cool looking and sound is great.
If you are wondering, the cost of these headphones are worth it, just like any other pro dj headphones.

i have been using this product for the last 2 weeks and really happy with my purchase.....
Highly recommend if you intend to DJ at a live event or bedroom djing....!
If you need a road-tough set of DJ headphones, these are pretty great. Plus none of the hinge issues the comparable Sony's have.
The sound is great so far, they're comfortable, and seem pretty sturdy. They also don't have the annoying creaking sound that my MDR-V500s had (which the MDR-V55s have too), so that's a win also.
Great pair of headphones. HIghly recommended so far, but I still need to take them out for a gig. I'm pretty confident about them, however, and think they will be just right.
