3 agree

Wide frequency range

3 agree

Foldable design - good for portability

3 agree

Somewhat water resistant. Have worn in the rain or with sweat, and didn't fry the system. Foam coverings offer enough protection from wetness to inner mechanics of unit.

Extremely powerful bass.

Cons

Get warm with prolonged use

3 agree

The foam padding on the speakers comes off after extended use, and are a pain to wrap back around.

3 agree

On really high volumes, sound leaks out like crazy. Not the best headphone set for at-work use.

2 agree

Cord is too long for portability and travel.

1 agrees

You need a really good sound card to fully enjoy the bass these headphones can deliver.

1 agrees

Supra-aural design makes your ears sweat

1 agrees

A bit too bulky for using with an MP3 player.

1 agrees

Sometimes fall off, especially if you try to walk around with them.
