And the last pair of headphones goes to martin_ayton.

I just couldn't bear to draw another random name and have that person not claim their prize , so that's why I went with this "first come" approach.

Next contest, I'll specify up front that I'm only doing one round of random drawing, then it will be some sort of "are you paying attention to this contest" type action.

Thanks again for the great headphones Jason. I've been using them for about a week now, previously my general use favorites have been a pair of in-ear bass boosting headphones from Phillips. The difference in sound quality is remarkable; while I do listen to music tracks on my iPod, I also listen to many podcasts throughout my regular workday. Especially with the music related shows, the sound quality from these headphones is comparable to 256 kbps tracks that I've ripped myself on iTunes.

The sound isolation properties are excellent as well. After trying out the various earpiece cushions to see which ones worked best, I finally settled in with the spherical rubber ones that I felt gave the best "seal" for blocking out external noise. I tried them out while watching my oldest son during one of his Irish Hardshoe classes; while I could still hear the sounds of his dance steps on a hardwood floor, it did not overwhelm the audio from some Armin Van Buuren tracks I was listening to at the same time. I have been able to reduce the volume that I listen to tracks also, but nothing like the levels that were purported in an online review of the same headphones.

They are as sturdy as reported and the included carrying case is a welcome addition also. My only minor quibble is that personally I would have preferred to have an "L" shaped connector on the cord that plugs into my iPod, but I can probably find a suitable cord online. At least the two piece design of the cords for these headphones makes that an option.

My rating out of 5 stars would be a 4.5 overall; if you are in the market for a new pair of headphones, I'd highly recommend these!
