The HD668B is a semi-open dynamic headphone whose sound quality meets the demands of even professional recording studios. Its patented sturdy construction provides long-lasting durability even in challenging conditions, yet the headband’s light weight and optimized mechanical pressure provides long-term wearing comfort. The HD668B comes equipped with 2 detachable straight cables: the short one is 1 meter long for personal sound source on-the-move applications and the long one is 3 meters long for professional monitoring applications. Both cables can be connected together for even more distance if desired.

Things I Like:
The sound clarity is amazing. I can clearly separate instruments in almost every track.
Voice and instrument sound reproduction is very accurate.
Comfortable and lightweight headband.
Detachable long and short cables.
Not so good:
Pretty unforgiving. If you are trying to listen to some streaming music with not so good quality these headphones make them sound worse.
Highs are too sharp and base is a bit lacking. Even after giving it time, the highs can be a bit too much and starts hurting my ears.
Not a flat response.
Overcoming the downsides:
The first thing I did was replace the pleather ear pads with soft ones I found on ebay. Makes a world of difference when you wear them 8 hours a day.
To address the harsh highs, I replaced the fabric in front of the driver with 5mm foam. This not only made the highs less harsh but also improved the lower end.
These cans also benefit greatly by some equalizing. Turn down the highs a bit and bring the base end up and they are perfect.
I also have a pair of ATH AD500 that I use for gaming but prefer the 668B's for music.
I highly recommend these for someone looking to get high quality sound on a tight budget.
I had the following concerns based on the Amazon and the Head-Fi reviews:
1) That the highs would be too high--possibly even sibilant.
2) That the fit would be uncomfortable (too tight; too warm).
3) That the build quality would be poor.
So far, all of those concerns have proven to be unfounded. I'm not a sound-expert, but on a quick listen to a range of music (Bill Evans on the piano, Justice, etc), I found the sound to be well-balanced, enjoyable, and clear. Neither the highs, mids, nor lows were overwhelming. On the second concern, I have a large head, and these fit well, with no pinch. In fact, I wouldn't mind a little tighter fit. I also have large ears, and the cups covered my ears entirely. Finally, the build quality is fine. It's not bullet-proof, but it's solid enough for this price range.
I'll continue to listen, and if they sound much better after about 100 hours if listening time, I'll come back to upgrade the rating.
EDIT: Well, it's two years later (the original review is dated Dec 21, 2012, and it's now Dec 28, 2014). These headphones have continued to perform just as well as when I first bought them. I quickly grew accustomed to the fit, and I still use them every day. They block out enough noise to allow me to disappear into my work, but I'm still able to hear when someone needs to get my attention. I strongly recommend this pair of headphones, especially if you can get them for the $30 or so I paid.
These are the best headphones you can get at this price point. Period. If one were to pay $150 it would be fair.
If you want crazy low end, don't get these. These do have wonderful bass response, but it is balanced. These are open headphones, after all.
Soundstage is mind boggling. These shine in the midrange--great for music and mindblowing for gaming. I am mainly into Ween, stoner rock, Finntroll, electro-swing, EDM and Lounge. I am not too into hip hop but I like Flo Rida and his stuff is astounding on these. Iron Maiden sounds majestic, as they should.
Buy these, listen to British Steel by Judas Priest all the way through. Your life will be complete.
Get a DAC/AMP for these and smile for the rest of your life.
I deducted a star because the stock pads could pass for a dungeon torture device. Your ears will get hot and they have no give. I could only go about a half hour before needed a break.
HOWEVER: Put the $10 (free shipping with Prime!) Cosmos velour pads on these and they become worthy of the gods...Others have mentioned that more comfortable pads change the low end but I have not noticed a difference at all.
I paid $47 TOTAL for the headphones and pads! It feels like I am getting away with something. It is unreal that you can get sound this good for almost nothing--considering how much you can pay for lesser stuff. Buy these and put the money you save into a performance car or a better video card. Or TV. Or a few steak dinners. Or a few kegs...you see where I am going...
I haven't tried, but I suspect these won't be good for using while exercising.
I paid for these myself, not a shill. I am about to order three more (with pads too) so my secretary--who loved them when she tried them--can enjoy them, I'll have a dedicated office pair, and a backup.
I will be buried with these.
I got them because Zeos mentioned them, Full disclosure.
