I've been using it for one year.
I'm very satisfied.
Consistent and well balanced response. It's not linear, the low and high-end are a bit emphasized. But the sound is very natural and consistent without any cut or boost. Once you know how it sounds, you'll have no problems. It's very important.
Good stereo imaging with a lot of "air".
The dynamic response is faithful.
What about transient response? These headphones showed me what transients are. It's very impressive and it enhance the stereo imaging. When punch is needed, you get punch.

The first time I used it, I wanted to send it back because I found the sound awful... After one day of use, the sound became amazing... It had to be run in...

My mixes became much better... I hardly use my HS80 anymore...

The headphones are very comfortable.

Sound description after listening to some CDs:
Very good reproduction of acoustic and electric basses: smooth, precise, controlled. Kick drum and bass are clearly separated. (with good recordings)
Electric guitars get good transients. (vintage guitars sound amazing with a lot of warmth). The headphones reproduce the warmth of the recordings.
The low-end of a church organ seems to be a bit too emphasized.
Very good for classical music. The noise of older recordings is not disturbing at all and it's no hinder to extract details (which are very well reproduced). Very good dynamic response and sound precision.
"Real" stereo recordings are very well reproduced.
Electronic music gets very tight lows.
For the first time ever, I could hear the difference between a 320kb/s MP3 and the original file in CD format. I made the experience as a blind test! I recognized the MP3 file through its transient response...

So, yes, I would buy it again... Maybe I would buy closed headphones as a complement...
