This model was the first headphone I purchased when I started being a serious Head-FI fan. It can be driven nicely by an iPod Touch and also via a dedicated headphone amp. Both prividing sufficient bass and detailed soundstaging.
Comfort wise, overall is very comfortable. But for long hours (I have uesed them straight for 4 hours), can feel a bit exhausting and too 'clamped' on.
A Grado its not but for that price, its value for money.
I had a set of these, received as a present, but I found them to be bass-heavy and not in a nice way, it seemed to dominate everything, especially speach.
They fell to pieces after a daughter sat on them on the sofa and cracked a small plastic clip that holds it together.
Putting a positive spin on it - if you you like your base big and juicy and are very careful with your posessions then these may be for you!
The reality - overly bassy and not built to withstand real-life knocks.
My ever faithful Sennheiser 414s from last century are still soldiering on however

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
