Cable

Cable:
"Personally, I also think the ear pads are nicer on the AD700X over the M50S.10 feet of cable on these make them great for plugging into gaming sound systems, but sitting at a desk, sometimes it gets annoying to constantly be managing the cable."
_
"But the fact that they got to the point if I moved wrong and shifted the cable at all they died kinda did it in for them."
_
"The only other minor complaint I have about them is the cable which I find to be hard and springy so I simply rolled them up to my preferred length and fastened a velcro strap to hold it in place."
_
"A bright sounding, neutral profile)Durable, quality buildDoesn't give me a headacheAMAZING for Rock, Classical, Jazz, House, Eurobeat, and anything with actual instruments (especially live performances)Cons:Cable is stiff (It literally feels like a coaxial BNC cable)Some people have problems with theUNDERWHELMING for Dubstep, Drum and Bass, Ambient, Dance, and anything reliant on the bass feel (especially noticeable with anything EDM)Note: The bass is light."
_
"Edit: After owning these for about 5 months I'm still very happy with the sound quality and comfort, but occasionally when I am trying to move around with them on the cord is a hassle."

"-PROS-Sounds greatFeels great-CONS-the support pads tend to be a bit weak and the headset can slide down off your ears at times, easily fixed with a rubber bandthe cord still has the coiled up shape to it nearly a month later, and it is kind of a hassle."
