  • Summary: Very brief....   These are the first portable cans i have owned where i have been pleased from the very fiirst track i listened to with them.....sound is great even before burn in, and 10 hours in they keep improving naturally.   Nice tight bass, decent detail, nice soundstage/three dementional, comfotable(despite other opinions), and very attractive looking......oh and great synergy with both FiiO E5/E7, for those looking for value and super sound.
  • Pros: Nice tight bass, Detailed, Soundstage/three dementional, Portable + looks
  • Cons: UK price compared to other countries

  • Summary: There's a lot said on this forum about these cans. Nearly all is positive, which was also the reason for buying them. My conclusion: they REALLY need burn-in and they are fine, but not that good as some here state. Don't get me wrong, I'm an Audio Technica lover, but maybe I was expecting too much. My main cans are W1000.
  • Pros: nicely built, low profile look, yet distinguised, fine mids
  • Cons: no sparkling highs, no padding on headband

  • Summary: Not much to say, it is better than other entry on ear headphones in how neautral the sound is. But some other headphones in the same range can have a more fun sound and better comfort. But when compared to some over the ear design headphones in the same price range the sound can feel abit lacking in my opinion. The sound is accurate and fast and quite neutral sounding but abit tiresome with the highs. But it is a really cheap headphone so it is worth the money imo.
  • Pros: Nice sound and quite neutral.
  • Cons: Not soft enough on the ears compared to other on ears.

These are truly great

  • Summary: I have to agree with 'NDUBISI MOKOGWU' review. Firstly, respect these and treat them with a little kindness and they will reward you with years of good service. Mine have been going strong since Oct 2011 and they are truly 'run-in' and sound utterly amazing. I have tried too many different headphones, from Bose, Sony, Sennheiser, Ultimate Ears, Shure... I have returned most of them and I come back to these every time.

Don't rely on reviews just go to a store

  • Summary: This is my 2nd pair of these earphones after 4 great years of listening joy, I broke my original pair and was gutted so it was a no brainier when I had to replace them. For all those people writing reviews and talking about bass levels, mid, treble etc, please don't listen to them, no ones ears are the same and you have just got to go to a store try a selection of headphones and then order the one you like on Amazon.

Disposable headphones

  • Summary: Great headphones - will serve you well for up to three months before the plug comes loose. Major design error that make these headphones useless with a portable player you carry in your pocket.

Great over-ear phones

Bored at Work Scotsman, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a decent pair of headphones to play with my ipod. These were getting good reviews online for their price and I can see why. The sound quality is excellent, and I've heard new aspects to albums I've listened to dozens of times, even with the lower quality that MP3 gives. They are very comfortable to wear, light, and the earphones swivel flat so they are easy to store. My only criticism would be that the wires are a little flimsy and not very robust.

4 pairs broken the same way

abuckman, Amazon

  • Summary: These headphones are great for sound quality and comfort and all that I'd want from a pair, but I've had FOUR pairs now and every single one has broken via the SAME WAY: If the cable gets caught on anything, and is given a slight tug (e.g. gets caught on your knee when you stand up on a train, or on a door handle as you walk through a door) then you can guarantee that they will no longer work.
