I brought these headphones out a limb really, I was after a basic set that would give me reasonable quality for a low price. These headphones covered this criteria quite well.
The reason I purchased these headphones was mostly to listen to music, I listen to a variety of styles such as Drum&Bass, Chillout and some Indie. The headphones covered these well, the bass sounds good and deep and didn't distort at higher volumes and the treble is clear and you can really tell the difference in track quality. Noise cancellation is fairly good, the headphones don't allow much outside noise in and also don't let a lot out so other people can't hear your music.
I took one star away because after extensive use (more than about 2-3 hours) they began to hurt my ears. The headphones fit tightly around one's head and tend to get uncomfortable (tight and warm).
Overall considering the price, I am pleased with these headphones and if you don't plan to use them for extensive use(or have a really small head!) they should be very satisfactory. They do live up to the good reputation of Sennheiser products.
