Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The one slightly irritating aspect of the headphones is the cord is not detachable."
_
"IT HAS A THICK CLOTH COVERED CORD (less likely to be damaged by accidental pulling or stretching or distortion, or wire fracturing).IT HAS 2 PLUGS...ONE ON THE CORD ITSELF (which fits into the computer headset outlet), WITH A MODIFIED LARGER PLUG TO USE ON TVS OR STEREO, OR HOME THEATERS THAT ATTACHES TO THE PLUG ON THE CORD."
_
"Cord length may be a problem when using for travel - 20ft could be a bit long and thus management of the cord is required.2."
_
"The 20ft cord lengthy may be a problem for some when using the device in a mobile scenario (ie."
_
"...my one complaint comes in the rather clunky cord design."
_
"That would be a great use, but for using with small musical devises, it's a bit of overkill, and it's hard to find a place to put all that cord!"
_
"Let's be clear, these are by no means portable headphones, they're huge as you can see in the picture, they come with a sturdy and good quality fixed cable (non-removable) that's around 18 feet I think."
_
"Velcro strap to keep the incredibly long cord under control, and the bag to put them in is pretty nice."
_
"These are for home use only with an excellent protected cable ( best I have seen so far) great for music, movie!"
_
"The cord itself is all nice and smooth, not rubbery and I would assume it is quite durable."
_
"All of that could have been forgiven if not for the biggest problem: the ridiculously long and heavy cord."

"Comfort and Good sound quality."
_
"Very comfortable & sound is great! "
_
"Great detail sound for the price, comfortable as well, could be modify to be better mid and highs, just take off the ear cup and rip off the driver cover cloth and put the ear pad back."
_
"These aren't jogging headphones, they were made for the times when you just want to relax and listen to music on the couch or in a comfortable easy chair."

Listening:

"Well, I've had these a week, approximately 10 hours of listening, and I can honestly say these exceeded my expectations."

"So if you are looking for non intrusive critical listening at reasonable price; these are the ones for you."
