Great sound and very comfortable.

Aaron S., Newegg
26 February 2016
  • Summary: You can order a replacement cord, that is shorter and has the 1.5mm plug, but the vendor should supply the short cord.
  • Pros: -Excellent sound. -nice bass. -loud
  • Cons: The cord is VERY long. I keep tripping over it or getting it caught in my chair. The plug is the large 3.5 mm plug and comes with an adapter for 1.5mm stereo but the length for these put together is about 3-4 inches and the weight of this causes it to sag a little when plugged into front headphon...

Got them for $50, best $50 I have spend on audio equipment

  • Pros: - Sound replication is perfect - Open back earphones provide the best acoustics for accurate sound reproduction and different genres - Not just a lot of bass - Perfect for amplified systems - Good to use as monitor headphones - Best-in-class performance
  • Cons: - The plug is a little big so an adapter might be needed for when you use it with a mobile device that has a case on it (I won't hold this against it as the sound performance is that good)

Sennheiser HD518 - good 1st impressions

glenn t., Newegg
17 February 2016
  • Summary: It may be a pro or a con to you, but you can hear ambient noise unless you're ruining your hearing. Not sure I'd pay regular price for them, but definitely a good Shell Shocker value. (Unless they don't age well.)
  • Pros: Ear cups big enough to surround my ears, not press my ears to my head. Inside the ear cup: 3" top to bottom, a tiny bit less than 1.75" front to back. Ear cups extend from the headband much more than necessary for me (Others don't always extend far enough.) Hefty cord to go with the large connect...
  • Cons: No cons that I've found in my few hours of using them.

Lives up to the hype

Brian M., Newegg
30 July 2015
  • Pros: The headset has great clarity and sounds super great. I got it to use with CS:GO and upcoming Star Marine, and I noticed an immediate improvement over my Gamecom 780
  • Cons: The jack adapter is annoying and clunk, and the cable is like 6.5ft in length or so. I'd have preferred a second 3.5mm cable shipped along with it as others have recommended.

  • Summary: Bought these to use on stream and I'm not disappointed. If you're an up-and-coming streamer on a budget these are the headphones for you.
  • Pros: Very comfortable, excellent sound quality, very long cord, great for streamers.
  • Cons: None as of yet

Great headphones under $100

Carl C., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: My previous headphones were the JVC HA-RX900 (first "real" set), and then a pair of Beyerdynamics DT770 Pro which I soon traded out for the DT990 Pro 250-ohm for the better sound stage (used for gaming, music, and movies at the time).
  • Pros: Sound great, good imaging, deep, punchy, and tight bass, comfortable, not too tight or too loose (for my head), cable NOT coiled, doesn't feel terribly cheap
  • Cons: Long and thin cable, large 3.5mm adapter, not very portable, pads could be a bit nicer, ears get a bit warm over time

Finally, asleep with music.

James R., Newegg
14 March 2015
  • Summary: Aside form the lengthy cord and need for an adapter ( supplied ), these have won my ears. 5 stars for being useful with my SRS out of the box.
  • Pros: I can roll over with these and actually lay my head down on a pillow; the cups actually fit around the outside of my ears. With the low profile they have, this allows me some room to roll over with them and fall asleep on my side. Single cord to left side.
  • Cons: Needs plug adapter ( supplied ), had to shave the plastic off of the adapter barrel for it to fit into my Otterbox on my S4. Venting? causes ambient sound to come in. This might be seen as a pro if you need to be able to hear someone talking to you while your "immersed" ....but these aren't noise...

Great sounding audio

LuAnn W., Newegg
13 March 2015
  • Summary: These are an excellent pair of headphones. At the sale price I had purchased them at, you cannot find a better set. At normal price, they will compete with anything else out there. If you plan on using this for a handheld mp3 player, it is highly recommended that you replace the cable as it is quite...
  • Pros: Very clean sound in all audio ranges without distortion. Very comfortable to wear. Completely covers my ears without pinching them. Android phone is powerful to drive them. Audio cable detachable/replaceable. Feel very durable, even for being plastic. The style of music I listen to is everything ...
  • Cons: Base is heavier than expected, but not overwhelming. You can hear everything outside the speakers; this can be a good or bad thing. Audio leakage at high volume. Audio cord is quite long and the adapter is huge. Not as much bling bling compared to brands such as Beats/Monster.
