Excerpt: For the price these are one of the most stunning headphones I’ve ever heard. They are a funky design as well. Although they look a little on the flimsy side, they are firm and solid. I opted for the cream coloured pair by accident, when I wanted the ‘ipod’ white pair instead. No real problem, but unlike rival headphone manufacturers, you don’t pay a premium for the white version, which is a refreshing change from all those trying to cash in on the ipod fame.
Excerpt: I have this which I bought for about $30, and the reason that I bought this headphone is for the fact that it has a super-light headband. Mine is basic black color, and there are adjustable buttons which I always use to increase and decrease volumes. The volume maximum level is about 10, and at around 7, I find it a tad too loud. So, I suppose for those who use the volume to 10 is a real sound person.
Summary: This pair of headphones is for those who really wants to make a statement with their style rather than for the sound that comes out of them. They look really nice in all those eye catching colors, but thats where it ends.
The build quality is what you expect from a $15 pair of headphones; the housing is made completely out of cheap plastic, although the head band is actually a thin metal wire band that is fairly sturdy.
Pros: Comes in colors of the rainbow.
Cons: Have a fun time trying to make these stay on you ears, mediocre sound quality.
Summary: At MSRP, the Audio Technica ATH-ON3ABK are a bit pricy for the quality of the sound reproduction. I got them on sale, which is why I don't mind the 'tin' sounding mid range, and the over all dullness of the audio reproduction. On the plus side, the headphones are extremely light in weight, and the minimalistic design will win over a lot of people. It's too bad the sound quality will be immediately noticed by audiophiles.
