The review seems a little unfair as they sound better than the Momentums (which you give 5 stars) and are probably not far off the 5 star HD25s. You critisise the finish but the head band is the same as the one on the HD25s you give 5 stars! You also fail to point out that these use most of the parts from the HD25s so the cables and ear pads are easily available for replacement. Since these are the two most vunurable parts that will condem lesser headphones to be thrown away it is no small point to mention.
You also completly fail to mention the included cable with iPhone/iPod controls and microphone built in along with the standard cable.
These do have a fairly tight grip but this enables them to be used out and about without fear of them falling off. As always how much the preassure affect you is a matter for individual prefference. However they can't be any tighter than the HD25s you give 5 stars to as they use the same band!
I managed to pick up a pair for £155 and would say at this price they are a 5 star rating.
At full price I would say these are 4 star as are the Momentums, due to there lesser repairability.
