When I first put them on, I almost cried. The sound is remarkable. The bass, the surround sound, the outside noise reduction - amazing. Top notch. They are a great fit, really comfortable. The long cable is really well made. BUT. I have used them for over a year now and I admit, I discovered some flaws. For instance - the small cables that go from earmuffs to the headband tend to be really problematic. I have to mess around with them to get any sounds. They aren't visibly broken anywhere, but no sound is quite a problem, when you think about a device for playing sounds. Also, the leather-like material covering the earmuffs is rubbing off over time, but I guess that's common. Though it has some flaws after a year-two, I still recommend them to all my friends and if they completely break, I'm going to buy a second pair. Best purchase of my life. No regrets.
