I love these headphones. When comparing the sr80s with sr125s and sr225s in my local hi-fi store, the cables where hidden neatly behind the shelf the headphones were hanging from. Me being so stunned by the exceptional sound coming from headphones in this price range that i actually moved the shelf to see if there was a small amplifier or something helping the cans out, but nothing!
The songs i enjoyed for referencing these were: Beck - Waking Light Petar Dundov & Gregor Tresher - Duo Tone.
They have seriously made me doubt the sincerity of my speakers when mixing.
They are nicer to look at when not weared. On the head they look a bit goofy but i doubt that they are meant for anything else but "shelving those lows" or turning off your cell phone and enjoying a whiskey with your favorite record.
Build quality is not great, and if equipboard had a 10 star rating system instead of 5, i would rate 9. I have seen people modify them online though (switching to wooden cans for different resonance and whatnot).
Oh yeah, they are very comfortable to wear for hours as well.
