Great Sound, but at quite a price!

Summary: Pros: Excellent, hearing-test / studio monitor quality speakers Detachable, long, coiled 3.5mm / 1/8inch cord Blue colored Detachable straight (w/inline mic for smartphones) cord (it has a four-conductor plug on the phone end) so, you would need a device that uses such a thing (most smartphones do, I think) The jacks are in just the right spot on the earphones, so you can attach the cord on either side, whichever works best for you.
Summary: The SMS Audio SMS-DJ-BLK 50 Cent Wired DJ Headphones are built to impress and they succeed on many levels. SOUND QUALITY: This is the first standard that should be used to rate headphones. After all, it's their basic function and if they miss on this mark, what's the point? I rated these using a set of Klipsch Image ONE Premium On-Ear Earphones for comparison, which I think are as good as it gets in quality (although some other reviewers feel they're a bit too...
Summary: I use headphones on almost a daily basis, primarily for practicing piano without disturbing my wife. I'd been using a pretty good pair although not as high end as the SMS set. I expected the sound quality to improve but was shocked by the difference. The clarity of the sound coming from my digital piano, TV, and MP3 player was amazing. I had to turn the volume down from what I was used to because everything seemed louder on these headphones.
Summary: I've actually been wanting a nice big pair of headphones for a while, and when I got offered these through Amazon Vine I was pretty impressed. They aren't exactly cheap and probably more than what I would normally spend on headphones. The headphones are great quality. They come in a nice protective and fancy zip case. The headphones actually fold in too, meaning if you carry these around in your bag they won't take up as much room, though they are still pretty bulky.
Summary: I've used a pair of the original Streets since last year and find them really comfortable with decent audio quality. Now Fiddy and his team at SMS Audio (Studio Mastered Sound) in Florida have re-imagined the concept and added some new models to the range. This DJ model is the top-of-the-range wired version and uses the SMS tuned 40mm driver, common to the original Streets, in this well-designed new model.
Summary: This is my second pair of SMS Street 50 Cent (or whatever the precise order of all those labels is) headphones and I'm even more tickled with these than I was with last year's set. As ever, the litmus test came in the form of Cliff Richard's Wired For Sound , Napalm Death's "If The Truth be Known" and the recently-added entrance theme for pro wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
Summary: I received these through the Amazon Vine system and WOW I never knew that headphones came as expensive as this! At £249 I suspect that the price will put this product way out of the reach of the average wage earner. However,These headphones will,or certainly should appeal to the sound purists out there,the sound quality is very impressive The Bass is brilliant without being overpowering.
Summary: When you receive the box with these headphones in, you start to anticipate that you've bought something special - I've been here before though - sometimes the anticipation is let down by the way that headphones sound once you've discarded the expensive packaging. In this case however, the headphones are every bit as good as the packaging suggests - SMS Audio have done their work well and , in what for me is the most important factor when evaluating headphones, have made...
Summary: I was expecting a lot from this product, and it definitely gave the `wow` factor for me. The bass is strong but not over powering. I have had the streets DJ`s on my head for a couple of hours and they feel like there not even on your head. Extremely comfortable. Pros - crisp sound with a nice bass - comfortable - strong build Cons - a little bit weighty Also what's good is that once turned up you can't hear certain people nagging at you!
