I have used these for two years and have ditched my much more expensive Beyer 770s & quality pair of Sennheiser.
Can't get a better price to performance in my opinion.

Steely Dan? - used to say, if a number didn't equally sound great on a bog standard mono car radio speaker, than scratch it & start again. A song must work across the broadest hi-fi/lo-fi spectrum. Plus sometimes we get carried away with what we've done, and it might not be that good anyway - time always tells

What are "good" headphones for mixing, as mentioned before, may sound sterile for listening to music. For those little mp3 players to sound good at pretty low power they have to fiddle with the frequency range. Usually an unnatural bass boost. Imagine a multiband compressor at work.
Those headphones and also average speakers with bass reflex openings are untrue, which is why you rarely see them in studios. Having that said, (for the reasons mentioned above) they make sure that a recording sounds good also on those systems.
