Average headphones for a premium price

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Summary: I got these headphones when they were on sale for $18.99, and honestly that's how much they're worth. These headphones are Skullcandy tier at a premium price. I don't think I could ever suggest anybody - whether they're a casual listener or an audiophile - to ever purchase these headphones at such a...
  • Pros: -detachable cord that can be swapped between 3.5mm or 6.35mm headphone jacks. -the aesthetic reminds me of the Dreamcast, due to the color scheme. -solid materials. -rotates.
  • Cons: -sound quality is too basic for a premium price. Bass is non-existent, treble is too raspy. -employs an on-the-ear design, rather than an over-the-ear design. This makes it extremely uncomfortable to use after 30 minutes. -the cord is too flimsy, making it prone to break at the hands of an animal...

sounded great..but falling apart

sam a., Newegg
16 August 2015
  • Pros: great sound for the price...and size.
  • Cons: built like junk...specifically..4 months of light use and the ear pads have split at the seams. I mean I use these maybe twice a week for an hour. Also, has a proprietary sound cable that will not take another type for the plug in on the earpiece..so if this cable goes bad, there is no non-factor...

Colin C., Newegg
22 July 2015
  • Pros: First of all the packaging ALONE gets high marks. I've bought other headphones in the past and never have I seen the love that was put into the packing. BASS BASS and more BASS! If you've got to have your medicinal supply of bass when listening to your music.....BUY THIS NOW!! But please understa...
  • Cons: My ignorance for not knowing about these phones months ago.

great price on good headphones

robert g., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: also the connection because it has a built in mic is a TRRS connector for the mic and when I connect to my phone it is fine but when connected to my computer it did have a little bit of static because the connectors did not line up perfectly.
  • Pros: for 21 bucks on shell shocker this was an amazing deal. I am NOT an audiophile so my review is not a critical review. but they sound great to me and are likely the best head phones I have used.
  • Cons: depending on the shape of your head I get a few gaps in the ear cups that do not seal tightly and they are not very flexible to me. this complaint does not merit loosing an egg because it is personal preference.

Good performing offering from JBL

Jason H., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: I purchased these for work recently to replace my dead Sony's. I was looking for a lightweight, modestly priced and decent sounding pair of headphones. On all accounts the JBL J55's hit the mark. At under $20, they are very affordable. The headset is light and fits my head well.
  • Pros: * Nice bass response * Volume is respectable with lower power Devices * NewEgg price of under $20 * Pretty comfortable * Flat cable
  • Cons: * Somewhat cheap construction * Fairly short cable
