Pros:Bass response, comfy, it has a mic, KOSS provides a lifetime warranty!
Cons:You might be able to trip over the cord, as its very long
The Bottom Line: These are comfy, powerful, and all around great headphones, perfect for music, games, movies, anything you would use a sterio for
Got these as a gift 2 1/2 years ago, and here i sit, wearing them on, these things were built to last.

These things are comfortable, so much so, that sometimes ill use them instead of my sterio, for latenight gaming sessions, and unlike other headphones, these dont rest on your ears, which can start to hurt badly after about a half hour, but these things rest on the surface around your ear, so your entire ears are surrounded by headphones. When wearing them, youre gonna notice that things outside are harder to hear, that mixed with the powerful speakers used in the design, youre gonna have to take them off every now and then to make sure nobody was calling you.
The speakers used in the SB-40s are very powerful. thier bass response is just amazing, thats why it can replace my sterio for a few hours.
the headphone cable is quite long, over 7' in length, so it might be a bad idea to use these while walking to school, as you might trip on the cord. the MIC plug used on these is a bit wierd, its not a standard mic jack, you have to pull it out just a little bit to make the mic work. the mic is kinda weak, you need to turn the volume up to hear anything the user is saying. a bonus is the mic boom is on a bendy stick thing, so you can move it around to get it in a better place for voice, and when youre not using it, id swings up and away.
i kinda liked these headphones because of thier bass response, so i used a screwdriver to remove the mic boom, and a twist-tie to hold the cable short.
overall, these are some pretty top notch headphones, wouldnt trade them for a pair of +$100 Bose noise canceling headphones, or top of the line ipod headphones, nothing touches the comfort these provide, and the skull banging bass response is priceless.
