Summary: I got these to replace the third set of broken headphones that were made with the kind of plastic that seems intentionally designed to eventually snap, so the metal rods were the main reason I got them. Very pleased with the audio, durability and comfort level, especially for the price.
Pros: Extremely comfortable and light, but not too light. Very good sound quality for the price. Very good (but not excellent) bass. Nice long cable.
Summary: all-around solid headphones, even better given the price
Pros: tbf i got these for 30$ elsewhere, half what its going for here. but they would be worth it at either price point. very comfortable; i have slightly big ears and the cans fit comfortably around my ears for HOURS at time. love the adjustable length.
Cons: its too bad audio-technica dont make a decent headset mic
Summary: For the money you're paying, these are probably the best headphones in their price range. Audio Technica has made fine audio gear for years and this is no exception. They may not be Koss professional series headphones, but they are lightweight, sturdy, and well built for this type of product.
Summary: Blown away with the sound quality of these headphones. I have a pair of £250 headphones for home (these I bought for work). Really not too much difference. They are also very comfortable and light.
