Great sound, but may be uncomfortable
I am not the type of person who obsesses over headphones or other sound-based devices, yet I do love music. This pair of headphones is probably the best I've ever personally bought, sound wise. The vocals are clear, the bass is just enough without being overbearing, and the MusicSeal blocks most outside noise. (just don't expect it to block out heavy noises, such as traffic)
The only problem I have with them, is that prolonged wear does occasionally hurt my ears. They are too "tight" at times, and I have to take them off from the pain. Admittedly, they could probably be stretched out a bit to alleviate this.

I love these headphones.
I lucked out and got these on a clearance. I was looking for a cheap pair of headphones that were comfortable and could be used easily at work. I got more than I expected. I am looking to buy a second pair for home and am willing to pay full-price. They do a great job of blocking out the chitter chatter throughout the office and the sound quality is great. Having the mic is an added bonus because I can answer my iPhone easily while continuing to work away at my desk. The padding allows me to wear them all day without getting sore ears or a headache. Plus, they look cute.
