Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I was prepared to give the Octagon a full test and rip it a new one but, after using the headphones for a few weeks, Monster has proven me wrong as the Octagons are comfortable, provide excellent sound and overall provide a good listening experience that if fairly well balanced."
_
"It is ok padding but at this price point it seems like it should outshine my bose in every way but it misses the mark with comfort."
_
"The plush ear cups, which swivel for even greater comfort in DJ style, are fine by me."
_
"The comfort, build, and sound quality are all excellent."
_
"If you take care of these (and I intend to with mine) it's well worth while to have something so versatile and comfortable."
_
"These comfortable headphones deliver excellent sound."
_
"While they are comfortable, with enough padding to provide excellent noise cancellation, they dont block out sound when they arent plugged in."

Fit

Fit:
"I also prefer the slightly lighter, looser fit of the Sony headphones...they would not be good for going out on a run, but they work well for sitting around."
_
"I have a pretty abnormally large head and my ears are big, and often headphones don't fit me well."
_
"They don't fit well on my 10 year old."
_
"They feel extremely durable and the cushions for your ears fits well."
_
"They fit great, blocking outside sound, and not being too tight."
_
"Some notes:+ The fit is snug, but very comfortable."
_
"I especially like the long cord that doesn't tangle -- but most of all the way they are designed to quickly adjust to your head so they're not tight but fit perfectly."
_
"The fit is super comfortable, especially because they swivel and turn in different ways so you can wear them however you want."

Music

Music:
"Do not recommend if you like bass or music or sound."
_
"If I push my music players to volume levels that are borderline painful to listen to people sitting next to you will hear a slight sound bleed-out."
_
"At high and low volumes, the sound is clear with no distortion...great for music and great for when I want to watch movies on my mobile device."
_
"I will never be able to listen to music with those piles of crap after listening with these."
_
"The bass is powerful, the music clear and precise."
_
"I listen to music and audiobooks a lot and these are the best headphones I've ever used (and I own a much more expensive pair, go figure).I find that they're very comfortable overall but the one flaw they have that might just be specific to me is that I find them heavy on my head after about 20 minutes and the weight can be a bit uncomfortable for longer wear."
_
"Overall, I think this is an excellent headphone for the price, especially if you're someone who loves good audio and music."
_
"Bear in mind that I am not an audiophile, but here is my take: at any volume, I am able to pick out subtle details in the music...details I don't normally notice with my cheaper earbuds."
_
"But, switching to the more electronic sound of Plaid's Heaven's Door, the headphones are a good match for the music."

_
"I am so PISSED and UPSET about them cracking, but the sound quality and noise cancellation is so good that I sucked it up and purchased a second pair."

_
"Great built quality but the audio is flat."
_
"Great sound quality, but a little tight around the ears."
_
"Best of all, the sound quality is consistent when you change styles of music or listen to some other kind of audio."
