_
"The cords are interchangeable and replaceable via the mini XLR connector, eliminating my previous problem of having cord issues internally."
_
"Love the length of the cord, goes all the way around my desk with plenty of slack toCan wear these comfortably for 8+ hours, after that they may get slightly uncomfortable."
_
"I also love that the cord cables are detachable and there are 2 ( short and long ).These are my first AKG headphones and definitely won't be the last."
_
"Detachable cable makes moving them around quite easy."
_
"Next I would like to address some of the problems others who purchased these had, specifically with the two included cables, they are mini XLR so you can easily replace them if the length is not to your liking."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The around ear cups they're equipped with are extremely comfortable and do not annoy or get uncomfortable (I haven't tried the other cups they include.)"
_
"Good replacement for my broken ATH-AD700 but 1) not as comfortable and 2) less impressive sound-stage."
_
"I was worried that the AKGs would be less comfortable and produce insufficient bass."
_
"If the headband were more adjustable and comfortable, I would probably keep them for the amazing sound."
_
"About the best I can say is that it's comfortable to wear."
_
"They are extremely comfortable, sound great but somewhat neutral (i. e. no hyped bass and high end)."
_
"But right out of the box - first impressions ( aesthetics, build, comfort ) These headphones look really good and the design is old school classical timeless."

"This headphone has good sound, light, comfortable; however, very very bad sound leak."

Fit:

_
"You can hear what is going on around you with these - call that a positive or negative as you see fit."
_
"They don't fit well at all, you would need child's ears for them to fit correctly."
_
"The fit is not as good when on, as the Senns - because the cups on the AKG's are cheap foam, there was always a gap at the bottom of my ears."
_
"The fit is great and they are light weight so they don't cause a lot of fatigue when worn for hours."
_
"Very comfortable with a solid but not too tight fit on the ears."
_

Listening

Listening:
"So I have to say that listening to music in these is not a lot of fun, the sound is very truthful and rather plain (I use Creative EMU 0404 as a headphone amp)."
_
"Also, they weren't comfortable.3) Koss PortaPro: good phones for listening to music on the go, but for digital piano it's far from adequate4) Sennheiser PX100II: great phones for listening to music on the go, good for digital piano, but lack detail for me."
_
"Very detailed sound, wonderful for listening to music, but beware: if you have bad quality audio, they will show it BIG TIME."
_
"they are not bad they are a average sounding solid in the 3s lows mediums and highs but when you start to pump up the volume they start to lose their stableness and if you use a amp don't go too loud they are good for listening to around the house at an average sound level but not bad for the price."
_
"I could not recommend these phones more for casual home music listening."
_
"Very good for live recoding sessions as well as casual listening as long as you have air-conditioning."
_
"I use these when recording and mixing my own music, as well as listening to Spotify, etc."
_
"I'm no audiophile but these boys up my listening enjoyment considerably."
_
"I'll say off the bat, this is what I was looking for:1) semi-closed, as to hear what's around me while listening to quiet music at work2) comfortable3) balanced levelingOverall this lived up to those expectations really well."
_
"The looser fit, however, makes them more comfortable for longer listening."
