  • Summary: I bought these headphones a while back now and they have recently began buzzing. Sound is mushy through them and you can't really hear anything clearly. The bass is nice for dubstep and movie watching, but they trick you by being incredibly unbalanced. Watching inception, the "BWAAAUUUH" is extremely loud, but the dialogue is near impossible to hear. Don't buy them expecting much, you can get headphones with deeper bass as well as better overall sonics for $20 less.
  • Pros: Decent Bass, comfy earcups, style may appeal to some
  • Cons: Sound is "mushy", short cable, overpriced

Great sound for the price, but ultimately a painful experience.

  • Summary: I Purchased these headphones a while back and I am still impressed with the sound and noise isolation For the price range I don't think you can get better in terms of pure un-adulterated sound. The drivers are huge and punchy with sound isolation that performed well. Their industrial heavy duty appearance looks good also (when you aren't wearing them) However... They are absolutely huge in size and look unbelievably ridiculous when worn.

Great value for money

  • Summary: I was seeking inexpensive around ear headphones and purchased these based on other reviews. For value for money, these do not disappoint by any means. They don't cancel background noise, so they may not be as good outdoors or on public transport, however the volume and quality is more then sufficient when I want to listen to music while sitting at my desk at work.

I would not recommend this headphones to anyone

Jose, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: The right speaker just broke after three months of barely using them. The sound is not properly isolated inside the headphones and you cannot turn the volume up if you are in an office without everyone hearing your music. I find this headphones quite uncomfortable to wear. They are quite tight. I would not recommend this headphones to anyone.

Disappointed

Daniel, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: Firstly, these cans do indeed pack some bass and the design is pretty cool, but that's about the only positives I can find with them. I suppose they aren't very expensive there is that, but in this case you get what you pay for. Stereo separation is awful, the mid-ranges and top end are squashed and muffled, bass although prominent is muddy and just feels sloppy.
