Excerpt: The headphones sound nice. They don't work very well for crowded offices, because the insulated ear covers don't drown out outside noise. The sound in weak because there isn't a powered (AA batt or other) amplifier or Noise Cancellation mechanism. They're cheap comfortable headphones. Some ear pieces are extremely uncomfortable. These feel as cozy as headphones get but they'll flatten your hair on top (if applicable).
Cons: Noisy Environment Nogo, Noisy Environment No Go
Summary: I bought these on Amazon for around $27 when I bought them and I liked the overall sound quality for the price except for the bass which was underwhelming considering it said punchy bass ( I have better earphones for when I want the better highs and mids and wanted a good pair of bass heavy headphones ). These are closed and around ear and isolate outside decently from when I used them so no complaints there.
Pros: comfortable and great sound quality for the price
Cons: Almost non existant bass for my taste , Thin cable , and built with plastic
comfortable headphone, they're really no better than the less ...

Summary: I ordered these as a bit of an upgrade to my HD202's that I've worn out. In reality it wasn't worth it. Whilst they're a decent sounding, comfortable headphone, they're really no better than the less expensive HD202's. The lead is so flimsy I've needed to secure it at both ends with a mini cable-tie - far from ideal. And the sound quality is only equal to, rather than better when compared to the HD202. What am I say here?
Summary: Good sound quality and bass, and EXTREMELY comfortable even when wearing glasses. But slightly too quiet for my liking - both on my phone and when using with my laptop with the volume all the way up, I would still like it a bit louder. Cable thin but the jack looks sturdy enough. I have JVC Xsplosive in-ear earphones, (well I am currently sorting out with a sender, since one earphone is faulty), but the earphone that works, offers better bass, sound qualiy, and volume...
Summary: The base is quite heavy on these but I don't mind that. If you're wearing them in confined places or on a plane you won't be very popular as everybody will be able to hear what you're listening to.
Summary: as I said above the sound is amazing and can turn them up to full volume and surrounding people can barely hear your music. but the quality of the design lets them down, the cable is too thin and the ear guards ( the sponge) is not up to my expectations but for the price I paid they will do for a short time I suppose
