  • Summary: I have these for more than 2 years and they are still like new. I use them almost everyday exclusively for watching TV and playing console games, and I have no durability issues. The volume control is great and very well made. They are light and comfortable, but the armature makes a lot of creaking noises since build quality is very cheap. It's all cheap plastic, but it works. The sound is surprisingly good for the price. Very smooth and relax, laid-back type of sound.

  • Summary: I have to edit this review to write a short one. These cans sound good for the price, decent bass and overall decent presentation, with nasaly mids and lack of detail. But break very fast. Had to take ratings down.

Great!!!!!

  • Summary: Back in the spring of the year i saw these on a shelf at my local CVS store and a tiny voice in my melon said "C'mon, buy them! You can't go wrong for the price!" so I heeded what my inner voice said and I purchased them much to the dismay of my wife (No more ham stuff!). Getting home I took them out of the package and hooked them to my Icom 746 using the adapter provided since the end of the cord on the 'phones was too small for the phono plug on the 746.

Very poor perfomance

  • Excerpt: I was so happy when I bought these, as I have hearing problems & also live in a quiet location, good not to annoy the neighbours late at night! After a few weeks the right side stopped working, then the left side started playing up, coming on & off as I moved, then the cord developed a split in it close to my ear. Then it stopped working altogether. Same problem with the box as other reviewer, otherwise I would have returned it. Didn't even last 8 months...

  • Summary: Needed new headphones. These are great value. The stereo on them is good and I love the idea of its own volume control.
