You pay for looks, and sound deafening, but not sound quality.
2 March 2013
Summary: I got these and started using them right away. They are fantastic at blocking out sound and look really sharp, but that's really where it ends. The sound quality isn't really that great - and I'm no audiophile. It's a whole lot of mids and nothing else. Plus, they run a bit small - the extenders don't go out as far as I'd like. Overall, I'm satisfied.
Summary: I got these to replace some well-weathered Sony MDR-V150s. In comparison, these sound peaky in the midrange. Make the equalizer look like a smiley face and you're good. Bass is decent, not the best I've heard but acceptable. Highs don't sound as bright as I would want. Maybe that's just my ears. Audiophile headphones these are not, but they're certainly good for budget on-ears.
Lacking, but decent for the price. (Coming From a Sound-Buff)

Summary: Overall: -Lacking in bass. You can barely hear it most of the time. -Comfortable fit -Lightweight, yet feels flimsy. -Good cord length -Moderate sound clarity -Sound leaks out so others can hear it from up to 5 feet away at half volume, from previous experiences. Bass: There isn't much to it. Literally. I can usually barely hear it, and when I can it's still too quiet. If you like headphones with loud, thumping bass, these are not the pair for you.
Summary: Bought these very recently, thought the sound was ok, the fit is very snug. The cord is flat, which is unusual, but I guess that is to prevent tangles. I just snagged the cord on something a few minutes ago while I was bending over and the cord RIPPED IN TWO. Part of the cord was still plugged into my iPod and part was dangling from the now useless headphones. I have never ever had that happen with regular cords. So be advised.
Summary: a few months after purchase 2 out of the 3 we got broke. First the sound went out on the left side of the headphone and then the connecting wire broke in one way or another. 1 broke at the metal connecting part, the other the wire connecting the metal part slid down. I went out and got a replacement pair, but now thinking of returning to get something more durable.
Pros: great fit and sound
Cons: 2 out of 3 purchased broke within a few months
Summary: Bought it for the kids to use when playing games on their tablet. It's colorful and has reasonable sound quality for the price. It's best feature though is that so far it has held up to rigorous use (and neglect) by our kids. It's been stepped on, sat on and put through a wide range of kid related "stress tests" and it still works great.
