Christian P., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Pros: I had these headphones for more than a year, I loved them and used them almost daily at points, sound quality does inprove over time. Nothing profession but it'll give you good sound for a decent price. Handy detachable audio cable, convient for 2 reasons 1- not easy to damage cable 2- stores nic...
  • Cons: The one thing that really irked me about these headphones was the "strech" feature, its awesome you can turn it every which way. Of course yesterday while operating the phones, showing my friend this strech feature, I twist the frame and "SNAP!" they break..No warrenty that I know, I've had them ...

Comfy

Jeffrey D., Newegg
29 May 2012
  • Pros: I'd say the sound quality on these is probably in the $30-$50 range, and I got these on sale for $30. I wouldn't recommend paying much more than that. The real benefit of these headphones over other ones is the comfort. These are BY FAR the most comfortable headphones I've ever felt or owned. The...
  • Cons: They're not monitor headphones, so the cable is pretty short. I got some extenders for less than a buck on some sketchy site to fix this. The sound quality isn't super amazing, and there's no mic, so don't expect too much.

Amazing headphones!

Daniel L., Newegg
9 March 2012
  • Summary: My untrained ears do not find a huge difference between these headphones and the Sennheiser HD595...the Sennheisers must not have been authentic then. Get these when Newegg has a discount on them (I got mine for around $22 with free shipping) And as always, a huge thank you to the reviewers at...
  • Pros: - Sound is excellent! - Durability - Very comfortable - Nice feature where the cord detaches near the earcup to prevent snagging cord from ripping the headphones off your head - Color looks ok - I love the braided cord
  • Cons: None so far!

Great Value

Lindsay M., Newegg

  • Pros: Outstanding price for the quality after seeing it in the daily email blast. Arrived 1.5 days after ordering. great response and sound.
  • Cons: The cord for these is lacking if more than 4 feet from the source. But for the price no big deal!

Who prices these things?

Kenith H., Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Summary: I got this set because I bought the black set here with the Mic included in the cable and had issues with it. The cable with the mic included works great with iPods and Cell Phones that use the Mic. You have to back it out of the plug a bit to hear sound properly for your TV and such.
  • Pros: Aloysius - Keep looking, around the edge and you will solve your mystery. These are wonderful headphones! They are comfortable. Different at first, and the vacuum feeling was scary, but they seal your ears and block outside noise very well! Durable and if you wear them in bed, it isn't a horrible...
  • Cons: I'm not all giggles and grins about the color, but since these are for my room when I'm watching TV, I didn't care. Only reason I got these instead of keeping the red ones is because I got these with a $47 off coupon. After all my positives with the red ones, I couldn't let that deal pass by! And...

In the dog-house

Joseph J., Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Well, these headphones went on sale and I bought them to use while doing outdoor work. When they arrived, my daughter said her ear-buds were uncomfortable, so I gave her these headphones to try out. She loved them, so I gave them to her. My son is now mad at me because he wanted them.
  • Pros: Nice appearance, very comfortable, nice sound, Great exterior sound reduction.
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, the volume is a little low, but it is a very full range.

Good deal - update

Arthur C., Newegg
13 January 2012
  • Summary: *My previous review of this product citing poor quality, monaural sound was found to be based upon incomplete insertion of plug from earphones into detachable cord. The spring tip of the jack on the cord is tight, and firm pressure is required to fully insert plug.
  • Pros: *Beautifully packaged by Philips and Newegg. *Impressive looking. *Detachable cord should make replacement simple providing cord does not pull out of left earphone. *Adequate quality sound for mp3 players; more comfortable and durable than earbuds and canal phones, but less portable. *Very reason...
  • Cons: *"Adjustable" headband is elastic and pushes down on top of head, leading to uncomfortable pressure for me after a few minutes. However, band can be tilted a bit to the rear of the head, ameliorating the pressure.
