If you're coming from pack-in earbuds or cheaper cans, the first thing you'll notice is the detail. In acoustic guitar pieces, you'll hear not only the overtones but every fret and tap and sibilant noise of the guitar. You'll hear chimes and instruments that got lost in the noise, and cymbal taps that were too quiet to hear before. You'll be able to tell the difference between a good mix and a poor one (which is good, as these are technically studio headphones.)
Depending on exactly which cans you came from, you may also notice a lack of boomy bass. That's not to say that these headphones don't have any bass, just that it isn't exaggerated a much as it is on some other phones. They come off as bright at first, but this wore off after a few days for me. The sound did not become fatiguing.
Comfort wise, these are pretty good. They hug the ears, but not too tightly. I'm able to listen for about an hour comfortably, with 5-10 minute breaks in between. Any more than that, and the outside of my ear starts to hurt. This is actually better than any other headphone I've used, so it isn't meant as a criticism.
Build quality seems to be good, but I'll post back if I encounter any problems. I like the screw on 1/4" phone plug adapter, but am less happy about the permanently attached cable. I've heard bad things about the earcup quality, but replacements are cheap and abundant.
These headphones are ugly as sin, and I love them that way.
If you're looking for a first step into high quality audio, these are a decent place to start, especially if you plan on listening in noisy or crowded environments. Just be warned... you may catch a very expensive bug that forces you down a road of chasing audio perfection.
As a final note, these worked just fine with my vinyl, even though they are clearly labeled "for DIGITAL" on the side.
However, they are absolutely amazing, performing heads and tales above any wireless or noise cancelling set, period (are you reading BOSE? Yeah...talkin' to you. Also reffering to the incapability of wireless tech to reproduce quality sound, but really just poking at the aforementioned uber charging, market share holding, public snowing.... ). With regard to pricier wired sets, I cannot attest. That said, I have had the same experience as another reviewer, frantically reaching for my AV remote to turn the volume down for the sake of my now perhaps terrified and/or just really-angry-with-me neighbors, not realizing I'm plugged in wearing these, and I'm the only one that can hear the explosions. Theyre comfy, immersive, and the sound quality is off the hook. Yup. They make me giddy. They're that good.
As they're now out of production, and I'm suffering an intermittent connection problem with the left speaker that causes a slight buzz, I decided to invest in a new pair.
Unfortunately, I received a counterfeit set with the nylon bag (as opposed to vinyl) included. I wouldn't fault the seller outright except for the fact that one doesn't have to open the box and inspect the contents to know it is a counterfeit. The silver color of the type on the back of the box is different than the genuine article, which is more of a muted gold. I had to fish out my original box to compare.
Having simply reordered through my last order on Amazon (for nearly $20 more than I paid in 2015!!!), I did not have my gaurd up and inspect the box closesly before opening it to have my heart sink at the telltale sign of bogosity.
The seller is at fault.
I am very disappointed and will be following up with Amazon customer service ASAP.

So why on earth don't they produce these any more? I can't find them anywhere and I'm kind of lost as to what to do next.
Sadly, they fell to bits in less than 3 years. The ear pads began to lose their coating within a few months, then split open unevenly. I obtained new alternative ear pads after around 1 year, not as soft but stronger. The cord, a rather long coiled unit, was strangely kinked out of it's coil in several places when new and became quickly old and worn looking.
The final stroke was the loss of signal to one speaker. The cost of repair adds up to more than half the original purchase price.
I have AKG headphones 35 years old in good condition
