Summary: Initially, I was very pleased with the sound from such a bargain pair. Bought them to use at work. Very quickly decided they would be nearly useless except with a shirt pocket iPod, as the cord is so very short. After one week of use, the cord parted at the headset, and the headphones have remained unusable to this day. Scarcely worth returning to pay for the repair. The headphones have stayed in my stereo cabinet ever since, as a reminder of "Caveat Emptor.
Excerpt: These headphones have amazing sound, not quite that of the other Grado products, but amazing for what they are. Grado outsourced the manufacture of these to China, and unfortunately it is reflected in the design and quality. First, the "cans" are rather large for an around-the-neck design, causing alot of weight stress on the top of the ears instead of on top of the head. They are not light-weight. The next, and fatal, flaw is the construction of the cord.
Summary: got hese headphones after reading reviews in magazines and in here.i have to say for me they are a complete waste of money.the ear buds supplied are a terrible fit.you have to spend a lot of time trying to fit them into your ears ,if you can the sound is really good but this is negated by the the poor fitting buds because they just keep slipping out of your ears,they are either too big or too small. spend your money on something else .
Summary: das Positive vorweg: die Kopfhörer klingen sehr gut. Der Tragekomfort ist gut und erst nach Stunden beginnen sie mich zu stören. Ich habe die Kopfhörer auch zum Laufen an. Und hier beginnt das Problem. Nach etwa einem Jahr erfolgt der erste Kabelbruch. Ich hab den Hörer geöffnet und das Kabel gekürzt und neu angelötet. Vorsicht beim Öffnen und beim Handling. Es geht, aber man sollte etwas Erfahrung in der Reparatur von Geräten haben.
