Advantages: Good sound and design, lightweight
I bought these headphones fairly recently as a cheap second pair and wasn't expecting an awful lot from them.
The design is nice, I like the grey and they are quite comfortable when on and fit well, very lightweight also which I prefer. Only problem with the overall design is the headband, it feels quite flimsy and I am quite reluctant to put them at the bottom of a bag for fear it would snap, however as of now it has been sturdier than that it appears.
The sound from them have been great and is perfect for my needs on the occasional commute to work, the sound is crisp and at higher volumes it holds the quality. I have used them on my mobile phone, laptop and desktop computer, the performance is sufficient for my needs and I have no complaints over the quality of output thus far. They did seem to perform slightly better on my mobile and laptop though than the higher volumes of my desktop computer, but as I didn't primarily buy them for use on that particular device I am more than happy with them.
I have had no problems with the headphones and I would recommend them for casual use around the house or when out, someone wanting a pair for professional use would maybe find them not quite to their needs but then I doubt these are being marketed for that. In terms of quality output for the price, then these have for me anyway, been just right.
Summary: A good set of headphones for the casual user.
