Solid for the price
So you're starting out a studio and you want to put your money where it does the most good (mics, pres, monitors, acoustic treatment). You might be able to afford one set of really nice headphones, but you also need a whole bunch of others for when you're tracking a larger band.
That was me 7 years ago. I bought four of these plus an ART 4-channel headphone amp as a package deal for about $110 bucks. They were absolutely perfect in that regard. The almost ten foot cable means you don't need to buy a whole bunch of extensions so that the artists can move around the tracking room. They come with 1/8 to 1/4 adapters so you don't have to buy those, either. Most of all, they are super comfortable to wear and surprisingly durable. I still have all four and all four are still in working order after seven years of use.
The sound is solid, but it's not anything to mix with. They are a little choked for high end, which actually is nice if you're just using them to monitor while tracking, as it means no ear fatigue. They are lightweight and comfortable and also allow for plenty of adjustment. Over the past seven years, I've upgraded my tracking headphones and have bought others that are better. However, I still keep these guys around for when I have crazy sessions and still need a few extra cans to hand out to people who might be hanging out in the studio.
At any rate, I think these are the perfect headphones for a beginning studio. They are durable and do their job without costing an arm and a leg, so you won't feel bad about replacing them when you're able.
