Whilst it might seem ridiculous to spend AUD$200 on a pair of headphones, if you're serious about taking your music around with you everyday this is a really great product.
The design won't be for anyone, I had long hair when I first bought it which hides the fact that the ear cups poke about about an inch from your head. But now that I have a shaved head they can look a little silly, but I'm not too bothered about that.
Bass response and sound quality are good. They're not high-end audiophile 'phones but I'm fairly picky about the music the quality of music I listen to, and this products suites me fine.
While the call quality is fine, it's pretty much impossible to take a call on a windy day outside. Though I only really use this for making Skype calls through my mobile or laptop.
Pairing is pretty easy, I've had to reset the pairing settings a few times when I had Eclair (the OS not he dessert) on my Android phone. But since installing Froyo there's be no issues. It works works well with the DoubleTwist app on my HTC Desire thought if I could change anything it would be to speed up the slight (half a second) delay in starting up and skipping tracks.
The charger indicator (3 flashing lights for full, 1 for nearly empty) would have worked better on scale of 4 (4 for full, 3 for nearly full, 2 for "you should charge it tonight", 1 for nearly empty). I use my headphones on my walk to work, for about half of my working day, the walk back home, at the gym, on the phone in the evening etc and the battery lasts about 3 days, which I think is very good!
Basically, until something better comes along I'd definitely recommend this product.
