Overall, I like these a lot so far. I had a pair of this company's S7 headphones that died on me recently, and I find that these are feel a lot more secure - probably the solid headband (the S7 had a cable instead) Though they are fairly well-seated on my head, I can still move a headphone away from my ear if I need to.
They are pretty lightweight and reasonably comfortable. I had these on for hours last night in a session of World of Warcraft (paired to the computer) and I barely noticed I had them on.
Soundwise, I am not a sound-expert, but I have fairly good ears and I am not noticing anything weird yet. It seems full enough to me for a mp3 player. The phones cover the ears well so I'm counting on that for good open-air coverage in noisy environments. I'm not thrilled with the size, but they compare well with others I have had or seen.
Buttons are all on one earpiece, and the controls seem intuitive when I'm looking at the phones, but when they're one my head they're a bit difficult to get used to. Have to be careful when pushing volume rocket not to hit wrong end, even though it's clearly marked in molded + and - signs, they are not that easy to feel! Also track forward and back are on sides of the circular headphone, but the headphone doesn't sit straight up. Likewise for the phone call and play/pause button on the top and bottom of the earphone. At least the power button is relatively easy to find. These controls are all pretty well spaced, so this should get easier with time and practice. (you won't need tiny fingers to operate)
I have noticed some problems with pairing. I put them on this morning and the earphones were working fine, pumping music from the iPhone. Then a while later I had to make a call so I pushed the button, and it didn't respond. I had to turn them off and on again to make it work. Weird.
I am already noticing the occasional skip in music with these. This seems to be a common "feature", but so far these seem to have about as solid a connection to their source as any of the headsets out there can boast.
