1. There is more to a good headphone listening experience than audio quality. Comfort and feel play a big part, and these feel right. Not too heavy, not too tight.
2. Solid sound quality. For the price I paid ($300), I'm very happy. I'm not sure I would choose these over Sennheiser or Grado in the $600-$700 range sound-wise, but I can see how others would. You just have to like a warmer, colored sound concept. As far as I can hear, before burn-in, these are simply very pleasing musical cans. No voice or instrument comes across as harsh, even when listening from less-than-ideal sources. Soundstage is big, but also intimate. When listening to female jazz vocals, I feel like I'm the microphone, and that's not a bad thing. I suppose that means a certain loss of realism, but the experience these offer makes up for it: they allow me to just enjoy the music. (And I say this as a critical listener. In addition to being an audiophile, I am also a trained musician, so I'm certainly not just a "I like what I like" listener.)
3. Build quality is excellent. Better than most other mid-range options, as far as I can tell.
4. These cause zero ear fatigue. None at all. With other headphones I've either owned or tried in this range (Grado 500 and R series, Sennheiser HD6xx series, Sony), I tend to become sensitive to treble "bite" after a few hours. These control that aspect of tonal presentation beautifully, making this a great all-day pair of headphones.
5. My phone drives this lair well. I'm going to try them with a Chord MOJO next.
At this price, I don't think you have anything to lose. The accessories are nice: good cables, well-made carrying case (NOT genuine leather, but 'protein' leather, according to Audioquest, but still high quality). Go ahead, try these out. They aren't reference headphones, which is exactly the point: they treat music as art rather than data, and I think that's a great approach to sound presentation.
