I love these phones. I have many sets of phones, all good quality. Why do I have so many? Because I was looking for some phones that I could wear for more than a couple songs before it felt like my head was being crushed. I am a musician, and I practice many hours per day, so I need something I can wear for that time in comfort. These are the lightest phones I have ever used (of professional quality, that is), and really suit my needs. They are also "circumaural", meaning they go around your ears, instead of sitting on them. This is important if you don't like the feeling of having your ears crushed, or that the phones are somehow too small for you. I play bass, and run my bass through my system so I can play with the MP3's or CD's, and I need phones that reproduce the sound and don't distort, and these sound great. You need to give these a try, and you will never go back to your old cans.
You can look at the specs, but these feature 40mm drivers and a frequency range that goes down to 18Hz, so they can reproduce the important (to me, a bass player) low frequencies. They do not do this at the expense of the highs, however, and do not sound "boomy" or like the low frequencies have been artificially boosted. They are just well-balanced and lifelike. The main feature I like is their light weight. See more on this below, but that puts them head and shoulders above anything else I've used. Another small thing is that the cord is straight, not coiled. For some uses this may be sub-optimal, but for me it is perfect because, due to the location of my computer, the coiled cord is constantly pulling on the phones and getting in the way of my left arm, which I need to play my bass. So, the slight inconvenience of having the cord be a bit untidy is overshadowed by the relief from the irritation of a coiled cord.
I don't really know what makes a headphone durable, because I use them at home and don't have a problem with any of them. You can't make them out of cast iron to be durable and have them remain lightweight. They seem like they would hold up well, but you have to take care of them. If you sit on them repeatedly, I'm sure they will show it!
I got them for an incredible sale price, so that was a no-brainer. At their normal price, they compete with other phones that also have good sound and good construction. For me, their light weight would be their strong point. My rating reflects the normal price; for what I paid they are a 10+++

You get what you pay for with these headphones. If you are expecting to pay this price and get some top notch studio headphones, look elsewhere. These things are very comfortable to wear and have some nice build features, they seem to be holding up physically, but the sound quality is poor. I use them for an extra set of cans in my studio for things like a guitar player listening to mix playback or a metronome; they work great for that. They will NOT work for you if you want an accurate sound response for mixing tracks. Might be ok for listening to music on your mp3 player or something if you don't care about having a thin sound that lacks almost all low end.

These headphones are a decent value for the price you pay in my oppinion. These things are great spare headphones for a cheap price.
These headphones are quite comfortable. The headband is very adjustable, the ear cups are soft, and they don't weigh very much. I would have no problem wearing these for a long period of time. The single cord is a nice touch for headphones in this low price range.
These have a decent build. I have been using them for about 6 or 7 months now in my studio and they are holding up just fine. They are made completely of plastic so i don't imagine they would stand up well to a beating, but i haven't had any issues yet. The sound quality is NOT good. They are clear, but there is almost no low end at all; very thin sounding. Not good for mixing or hearing a true playback at all, but what do you expect for the price?
Decent build quality, not great sound quality, but you get what you pay for. I didn't buy these headphones and expect to be alble to mix or master tracks with them.

      Comments about AKG M80 MkII Semi-Open Studio Headphones:

      Needed an extra set of headphones for recording in my home studio. My benchmark headphones are an AKG 240M, which is an open headphone. Great for mixing, but too much bleed through for recording vocals while listening to a loud mix. I had bought some Tascam TH-300X closed back headphones for recording a while back, but they are a little too tubby sounding. The AKG M80 MK2 headphones are a good compromise. While not as detailed as my AKG 240M headphones, they are much clearer than the Tascam headphones, and with very little bleed through when recording vocals. The fact that they sell for much less than either the Tascam or the 240M headphones is why I would highly recommend the M80 MK2.
