Summary: (I have only just bought these headphones, so I will come back after sufficient burn in time and make a statement then as well.)
First off, these headphones are EXTREMELY light. They don't weigh a thing on your head, don't clamp hard at all, and are just generally very comfortable. They sit well on your head and adjust in several different ways to fit heads of almost any size. I have worn these headphones for HOURS and only barely notice them!
Pros: Light Weight, comfortable, small, great sound
Summary: I'm just a junior head-fi'er, but I do love my music.
~~~Summary for the hasty?~~~
They are decent $50 headphones, but they are barely decent. The only area that they excel in is portability. Everything else is just sufficient for the price you pay. My recommendation? Buy them on sale. I know looks are subjective but they seem pretty stylish.
Sufficient. I admit, one year of use is not very long, but they show no sign of damage.
Summary: Introduction: Now, before i start the actual evaluation of the sound, these were literally my first pair of headphones... And the ones that started my obsession with the whole collecting headphones thing.
Build Quality: For a $50 headphone, you can't really complain about the build quality. They are basically all plastic, and the cable is not detachable. For a low cost headphone, i really think these reflected the price in terms of build quality.
Summary: I purchased the headphones after reading a lot of review, however none of the reviews could give correct description of the product. The so called bass effect is completely missing, my samsung headphones that came alongt with the handset has better music quality than this product. Disappointed !!
Summary: Nice design. I agree with previous reviews that volume and answer controls could be easier to find and use as you cannot look at them when wearing the set. Bass is an issue. I have a similar pair of headphones (HD408) from the same manufacturer (which is the reason I chose them again) and they produce much better low end sound for a slightly smaller price tag..
