Very comfortable, hardwearing, ideal for tracking on location
May not be the most accurate-sounding headphones ever made (you'd generally want open-backed for total accuracy anyway), but when compared with my Sennheiser EH2700s they rate closer than the price tag might suggest. One thing that strikes you about the HD880s is how superbly comfortable they are - in this regard they're actually slightly superior to the Sennheisers for my money; no problem having these on for a long session.
For the price you could do much worse than a handful of pairs for budget band recording, the sound isolation is pretty good and while not awe-inspring sound quality is more than good enough for tracking and overdubbing. I wouldn't want to use them for any kind of critical mixing, but for general project studio duties (and for more everyday stuff like gym and jogging) you could do a lot worse.
