I own some headphones above (Q701, HD6xx) and below the price range of the M220. I think the price to performance ratio of the M220 is quite brilliant. They most likely wont blow you away, but will provide a relatively balanced, good sound, along with very decent long term listening comfort. For the price you get a good introduction to the AKG house sound, that in some ways is a little more enjoyable midbass wise compared to the Q701 (for the average/uninitiated listener at least).
I bought these for a family member, and they have been very well received. The M220 are a large upgrade (sound wise) over headphones purchased for similar money locally (whose permanently attached cables are inherently unreliable, the detachable cable on the M220 is a nice touch that cant be overstated for longevity).
