Excerpt: For what they are (at the price I mean) these exceeded my expectations. Have had Koss before and liked them, but these seem pretty neutral and better to me. Good bass, good mids, good highs. Pretty balanced. Very lightweight and comfortable. Work well with smart phone also.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: These are so comfortable and light, you can wear them for hours, which is especially important for professional sound applications.They're also collapsible, so you can carry more than 1 in your rig.Sound isn't quite as good as $ headphones, but not far off, and these are a lot lighter and more...
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Lightweight
Summary: I wrote one year ago that my ur40 headphone wouldn't be suite solid. It was partially an error. Yes finally after one year they have let me down... But 3 hours per day using, and a so good quality for a so good price: I have ever buy 2 new pairs of these headphones!

Pros: Great dynamic sound. Open back design makes it perfect for mixing music with surround ambience very similar to using desk top monitor speakers for mixing, but without bothering others in the house. Comfortable and breathable for long mixing sessions.
Cons: Cord too short, I had to buy a an extended cord. Would be better if the cord came out of one side rather than both sides.
Summary: I've bought these headphones twice, after each pair's 3-year life expectancy expired. However, seeing as they were only $40 (and I've found them even cheaper under the RadioShack brand), they weren't too shabby.
Excerpt: Okay.. I've recently started doing VoiceOver work on a more professional level and needed new headphones. My old ones were too "muddy". I wanted something that had enough clarity for me to hear background noise, mouth clicks, and any other subtle noises that would keep me from having a clear...
Pros: Comfortable, Good audio, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
