Sony MDR XB700
Advantages: Comfy, high quality
Disadvantages: Not a flat sound, bad for engineers
If you listen to a lot of heavy metal/hip hop or dance beats with a constant beat, these headphone are for you. I would recommend them to DJ's based on the type of music they will play however i would not recommend them to any sound engineers are the frequency response on these headphones is far from flat.
In fact these headphones are so frequency coloured that the resulting sound is quite sir-real. Drum and bass music seems to love these headphones and since ive had them ive rarely used them to play anything else as a result, maybe the exception on some heavy metal from time to time.
They are quite comfortable and sit well on my head, they are also very adjustable so anyone can achieve a nice fit.
At this price you would expect a loud set of speakers, and i can tell you that they only seem loud because of the added bass end but are loud enough for enjoyable listening.
Summary: An excellent set of headphoned aimed mostly at the consumer markets
