This does not necessarily hold true for full-size headphones as I can think of many very durable headphones that also sound very good.

For example:
Sennheiser HD25 SP-II
Beyerdynamic DT250
Sony MDR-7506
AIAIAI TMA-1
DBI PRO 700

All of the above are good sounding headphones that are also extremely durable...

They're the 35 Ohm version (it's in the name - GMP 8.35 vs. GMP 8.300).

Well, for the sound, I dunno, kinda torn at the moment. They are very clear and dynamic and have excellent instrument separation - but regarding their frequency response, they start sounding natural to my ears when I add some 12dB of bass and remove some 4dB of treble... I guess K701/DT880 fans might love them as they are.

Also, they have the best isolation of all full sized cans I tried so far. Those weird ear pads sure do their job. (Although I'm gonna try the Beyer DT770 pads, see what they do - except for being more comfortable.)

I've been seeing a ton of those DBi PRO-700 phones on Nakamichi wall-mount CD players. Too bad they can't fit my head...

PFR-V1.

Even though I have terminated my audio adventures, I still want to hear this "headphone". This and the Sennheiser MX W1.

The whole thing depends on the fit. For proper bass sound one needs to stick metal pipes into the ear canals.

My interest is peaked, I'd like to hear about the sound quality and if they are comfortable to wear.

Even though I only tried them in a loud store way back when, I was not impressed by those things, even wearing them was uncomfortable with those metal things poking into the side of your head(right infront of your ears). Seemed like the least elegant way to make these so called "Ear speakers"

Thanks for the feedback, I thought as much about being uncomfortable but didn’t want to jump the gun since I never tried them. Luckily they were discontinued in 09 from what I read

Hey now, discontinued doesn't mean it's bad. Plenty of examples in our lab...

Second to sound quality if not tied with is comfort in my book and I thought as much without mention until Jack4L confirmed my belief.

And, from what I've seen, your opinion seems to differ from what most of us agree upon. I'll wait for the dfkt response as well,...
