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.
