Good product.

Nundish, Amazon

  • Summary: Good sound and cancels noise from surroundings. Consequently this is not recommended if walking or jogging close to traffic on busy roads! Moreover the earpads press too hard against my ears and hurts if worn for long hours. On the other hand, it is a good product for listening to music/watching movies. Product also arrived on time!

Good, but lacks longevity

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: I didn't buy these off Amazon, I bought them in HMV at Christmas for £20, but it's the same product I guess. Anyway, the headphones were great at first with awesome sound quality and I thought they were the greatest thing since sliced bread. They also had a handy feature where if your ears got a little heated, you could put the headphones around your neck and turn the actual sound parts facing outwards, and you could listen to it just fine like that.

First Pair of Headphones

Calvin01253, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: Rather surprised when i got these. For £18.49 i wasn't expecting these to be great but they're better than expected. I use these to listen to music and to play games. These feel sturdy and hopefully they should last me for a long time. For my first pair of headphones i was rather impressed. They can be very uncomfortable especially when first using them. You might not get used to them but, i can at least wear them for a little while before my ears start to hurt.

Reasonable for the Price

  • Summary: Chord is a tad short if you use it with a keyboard/digital piano. Sound quality better than expected. Comfort is reasonable for an hour or so. But prefer my budget Gear4Music model.

Sound not good...

IntensiveCareNurse "IntensiveCareNurse", Amazon
1 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased these for a price (at the time) that better reflected their low audio quality. They were a replacement for a 15 year old pair of Sony earphones that had cost me £50 (and were fantastic quality) back in the late 1990's. It does seem quite unfair to compare them to that kind of quality when the price is taken into account (as these headphones are probably less than a third of the price of my old ones when inflation over the years is accounted for), and on that...

It's OK for some. But don't expect bass!

Shivers "Andy", Amazon

  • Summary: These headphones arrived yesterday, I've used them enough to reach my verdict: The headphones look great and are extremely fashionable as stated. Sadly their audio quality leaves a lot of be desired. The treble and high notes is crisp and clear. The mid-range is slightly muffled and gets lost slightly, not coming through as clearly as the highs. Sadly, the bass is lacking heavily, it doesn't come close to a deep and vibrant sound.

value for money

Snake_charmed, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: Given that these were not expensive I think they're fine for the price. They are not that comfy to start with but bear with them and they seem to settle in. I wear them quite happily for a couple of hours at a time. The volume is not really high enough for traffic noise and as I listen to a lot of podcats this can be a problem but again i would rather this than damaging my hearing by listening too loud. For music the volume is generally fine for me.

Close use only

Nodrap, Amazon
15 June 2011
  • Summary: They look and sound quite good but they seem to be tailored for jogging. The cable is only 1.2m which wasn't obvious from the site. This is only long enough for things you carry or have in your pockets. The spring on the frame is also very tough and so doesn't feel very comfortable even though it is well padded. I'm assuming its that hard so you can jog with them. It should be marketed as such and labelled not suitable for PC or HiFi listening.

  • Summary: the bass on these headphones is quite impressive but the treble is lost they sound almost muffled they are also too big and quite ugly also the wire tangles quite easily i run quite a lot they really aren't ideal for that either for the price they are ok i had a pair of Koss portapro before these but broke them (my fault)i bought the sonys as i fancied a change i wish i hadn't koss portapro are the best you can get for the money the sound is amazing get them instead.
