Summary: Just when you need to hear music from your iPod and other music players. Unlike earbuds, headphones like these block out outdoor background noise around you. Overall, an excellent product for your music listening pleasure.
Summary: Sound is surprisingly good and much better than I expected. I noticed when I picked them up they are weightier than small headphones. I am very happy with them. Have been listening to them daily for several weeks now. I will buy more for Xmas presents.
Summary: These have metal not plastic head bands so with a little bending, I can wear them for longer times, without hurting my ears. These are on ear, and it seems I usually do like that type, with these they are different. The sound quality is decent.
Summary: These headphones have good quality in both construction and sound, the stress point at the headband is metal, not plastic like the several pair I've gone through in the past, and the ear pads fit perfect due to the two swivel joints per side, that's right, not one, but two swivel joints per side.
