You can get it for $84 shipped nao at amazon, so I'd recommend at least trying 'em and if they don't work out sell em on eBay for $85.

ChineseKiwi should have something to add here.

The only downsides I've had are this:
100hour burn in
Less than desirable bass (but I honestly don't care that much, they're perfectly fine)
.... I duno
They don't get dirty
I've dropped them dozens of times and they haven't even scratched
The cord is 9ft long
You can wear them literally all day and not get sweaty, hot, or uncomfortable from then in any way
Best $100 I've spent in my life.
