These are the headphones I use when I am DJing because they have a very comfortable, padded piece that bridges the headphones. My Studio AKG K240's are much better sounding (more accurate for music production), but have a very scratchy plastic bridge.
I tore up my favorite set of headphones and was not able to find them again as they are out of production. My wife knew I'd been eyeing these and some other higher end cans. (No they were not Beats. shudder) After letting her listen to them and looking at them time and time again in stores I picked them up and took them home.
I'm mainly a drum and bass DJ nowadays. So I was looking for something that would take the lowest of lows with no distortion and still give me crisp highs. I have yet to see anything made by any producer or artist that these things can not take. I've impressed many people with the sound quality of these headphones and convinced one or two to buy a pair now that the price has been drastically reduced.
