Pros I've had these for 6 days now. I have about 1,500 songs in my iTunes library and I'm in the process of re-discovering all of them. I'm hearing exquisite sounds that I've just never heard before. The spaciousness is so pleasing and there is no harshness
Pros 1 sound is great,
2 the fact you still hear surrounding sound while traveling.
3 the cups can flip flat.
Cons Construction is really cheap.
Cable breaks at the joint: for 4th time now. Renewal is quite expensive.
i'm not sure this product is meant for traveling /cycling etc
Pros sound quality is certainly of audiophile quality when partnerd with a decent source and something with a decent head phone amp but still sounds amazing with an ipod
Cons not grate for kicking about the streets defo a living room set of head phones open back so you do get a little out side noise
Summary hard to beat this sound quality for the price i haven't heard a pair under £180 that sounds better except the sr125s
Pros Light and flexible headband
Superior balance and warmth. The bass is refined and midrange is open with soft highs.
A promised of better sound after suitable burn in.
Cons Most basic box ever.
Ear pads could be softer.
Summary As I listen to a lot of music on my PC, I wanted to get a decent set of cans. These and the SR 60 get great reviews and I went for the SR80i. The box is very basic . But on first try, I fell in love with the sound these cans produce. I also hear that after a while they sound even better . I had a pair of Sennheiser HD650s which I returned due to serious head clamp. These are very easy on the head. Overall super value and I am now looking forward to long nights in aural bliss.

Pros Warm sound with good range.
Extra long cable makes using them at your computer easy.
Cons They're large, heavy and hot on your ears.
Flimsy quality - cables twist easily and start to fray near the ear cups.
Summary I wanted to love these for the retro style and price. At first listen, the sound is warm and inviting. They are well-suited for music, particularly jazz and classical with great range and sound differentiation. But these headphones have two big drawbacks. First, they're just plain uncomfortable. They're big and heavy. But despite the size, the cups didn't fit completely over my ears, so the edges of the hard foam pressed against the outer edges of my ears. Most unexpectedly, these things are hot. Yes, hot. After 45 minutes to an hour, my ears would get so warm (and so pinched) that I'd have to take the headphones off and "rest" my ears. So watching a full-length movie uninterrupted was out of the question. Second, the build quality of these phones is poor. Both ear cups turn freely a full 360 degrees, so it didn't take long for the cable to get hopelessly twisted and eventually to start pulling away from the cups. And despite taking great care in handling them, one of the cups became detached from the headband and I couldn't fix it. At that point I simply gave up. I'm sticking with my Koss PortaPros.
