Reliable earphones

Pablo Z., Newegg
14 October 2012
  • Pros: Ive owned these headphones for about 4 years. These light weight headphones are built to last. Extended use and storage in my pack does not warp the band. The cloth cord material prevents tangling and allows them to be packed up neatly. The length is also ideal.
  • Cons: The reflective material on the back of the band is nice but it does flake away.

workout headphones

  • Summary: This is the second set of these I've owned. I use these while i exercise. I can't find anything that stays on my head better for a comparable but I have different set for serious listening.
  • Pros: stay on my head while jogging better than anything else I've found
  • Cons: sound bleeds out because it is difficult to get these snug, sound quality could certainly be better

Acceptable Headphones

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I have owned logitech gaming headphones and though these are clearly not up to those standards, they are very nice for all your pc or MP3 needs.
  • Pros: - Came as advertised, Very comfortable, and sturdy design for a "cheaper priced" pair of headphones. Sound Quality is very clear and has a wide decibel range for volume. Great for listening to music, blogs and even gaming. The reflective rim of the headphones show up really well if you exercise in the evenings and are concerned about safety.
  • Cons: Cord is somewhat short, however this can potentially be a good thing if your like me a constantly run your chair over the cord.

The best for the price

Shawn M., Newegg

  • Summary: If you want great sound for a cheap price, these are the headphones to buy.
  • Pros: -The best sound quality from a cheap pair of headphones -The cable is flexible and durable enough to take a little bit of a beating -The pull relief works well for the top portion of the cord that goes into the ear piece -Each set lasts me 1-2 years (mostly from me being extremely careless with the cable)
  • Cons: -As others have stated, after wearing them for a prolonged period they start to hurt the ears. -It could use pull relief where the plug is at, that's where I always break the cable -I personally prefer the older model which hasn't been made for a looooong time

Great headphones

Devin O., Newegg
20 September 2011
  • Summary: -I don't really believe the 12-24Khz specs on these, but they do sound much better than I expected. I have the Sennheiser HD201 and they sound quite nearly as good. Extremely glad I decided to buy a pair of these after having good luck with them 10 years ago in an earlier iteration. A must have if you are into supra-aural headphones.
  • Pros: I owned a pair of these about 10 years ago and they have made some great advances in the hardware. Just tested these new ones with my reference speakers, and they are surprisingly flat considering their slim profile and excellent price -Very comfortable behind-the-ear design, sits in the nook of your ear not on the fragile cartilage. -Great for joggers, the band is reflective to light. -Very compact! and they look good! -Does not emit much sound when they are off. Goo...
  • Cons: -Thin, yet woven cord could be prone to really, really bad knots if you keep your cable disorganized. -The elastic cable safety guard does not safe you from big yanks, although that is to be expected.

  • Summary: If you're just casually listening to music these are great! however if you're an audiophile.. stop being cheap and look elsewhere!
  • Pros: I've had these for yeeeaaars. I bought them one day at target and the build quality is great for the price! I've tormented these things over the years and they've never frayed due to their threaded cord weaving and safety cord at the left ear piece.
  • Cons: The sound quality isn't that great. (You get what you pay for in that sense). Can be uncomfortable if you don't find the sweet spot.

Great

daniel h., Newegg
22 June 2011
  • Pros: Great sound quality and bass. Long, durable cord is really convenient and the little bungie to keep any pull on the cord from damaging is a great add.
  • Cons: Although the sound quality is great, everyone around you will be able to tell too. Doesnt do much to keep your noise in, which is inconvenient for me because i bought these for the office but still great headphones. All behind the head headphones can be uncomfortable and make your ears a bit sore after a while and these are no exception

Great for the price

Abigail K., Newegg
25 May 2011
  • Summary: Wish this was in stock.
  • Pros: *If these are the headphones with the fabric-covered wire... awesome. My favorite pair of 'cheap' headphones, I was depressed when I found out my brother stole them from me when he went overseas... *Wraps around your neck, is out of the way, and wraps around your ears.
  • Cons: * I'm sure it's with any headphones after awhile, but my ears would be slightly sore but not tooo much due to band wrapping around my ears instead of having something jabbing against my earhole.
