I've had these headphones just over a month now and use them to monitor in my work as a mobile dj. I had heard rumours about behringers reputation for inconsistency so I was a little apprehensive In my purchase to say the least and, after only a days use, tbe bass cut out in the right ear. I was very disapointed and filed for a return. While waiting for the return to be processed I left the headpgones lying on a table with the cord wrapped round them for a weekend. When I picled them up again, they were completely fixed. It's been around a month since this incidentand they are still working perfectly so god knows what happened. As for the sound quality there are no complaints from me. The highs are nice but not overpowering . The mids sit comfortably, however, the bass comes thrgh perhaps slightlhy richer and fuller than the clear signal and can sometimes be overpowering. If you are considering using these as studio monitors then you will meed to get used to this effect when balancing eq etc. As djheadphones they do the job smashing, no complaints. In terms of style, these headphones do look slightly more plastic than the picture. If you care greatly about the image of your headphones and want to look cool with them round your neck all day, then I would recommend looking at few youtube reviews to see what they actually look like before you buy. I feel for dj headphones, these are a great product for a very reasonable price.
