I particularly liked the coiled cable which meant that there was plenty of length when it was needed, but the cable stayed out of the way and, more importantly, didn’t tangle, when it wasn’t.
The cable is easy to wrap, hard to tangle
Comes with a 3.5mm jack and a 6.3mm adaptor
The gold-plated 3.5mm jack is attached to a gold-plated spring which strengthens the cable at its most vulnerable point - a neat touch. That 3.5mm plug means you can hook these cans up to a computer if you're sitting at a desk, and the 32 Ohm impedance rating means that most MP3 players should have no trouble driving them. My iPhone was more than happy, for example.

How well do they reproduce...
the sound of cowbell?
In 1968 maybe
Anyone who listened to Steve Albini's comments whilst producing Cinerama will probably laugh as much as I did!
Not really a 90%
I have these phones and was a bit disappointed with them. While the medium and high frequencies are very good I find the base quite weak and also they are a lot smaller than I at least imagined which means that if you have a big head and ears the pressure gets quite uncomfortable after about a half hour.
Too good for the PC
I use them in my hifi most of the time - not the most expensive by far but infinitely better than my PCs onboard sound (yeah maybe I need an upgrade).
Far preferable to so called gaming headphones (a decent desk mic works just as well for voice and you can eat crisps without deafening people!).
ps. Can be had for less than the rainforest store, had mine from overclockers but shop around, a few places stock them now.
