at $35 you are throwing your money away

Jesse G., Newegg
4 October 2014
  • Summary: At $35 you are wasting your money on these guys. The low end is quite pronounced, but the high end response is crippled by anything with bass in the program material.
  • Pros: Comfortable for long periods of wear. I've had this pair for 5 years and they still work just as they did when I bought them. Nice thick cord.
  • Cons: The claim to go up to 22khz is valid only if you are playing a sine wave. They is a significant dip in response between 7khz and 8khz. Anything with a dose of sub-low mid in the program and the hi end is DRASTICALLY cut. These guys get super blurry in the top end even at low volume.

Sony Headphones (MDR-V150)

27 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this pair of Sony MDR-V150 Stereo Headphones for office use to replace my ear plug style Sony earphones. I bought it for RM70 (US$21.50) after some recommendations from the Sony salesperson. My main requirement for a headphone is that the cord must be at least 1.5 meter in …

Great Headset

JAMES O., Newegg
12 May 2014

Incredible Budget Headphones

Paul D., Newegg
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Flimsy, but overall decently durable as long as they are not abused. I bought mine for a lower price at another dealer 10 years ago. I know they are discontinued, but still popular. I love them. They are my favorite headphones in the <$30 category.
  • Pros: Comfort, Price, Sound quality, Value. Solid low frequency response.
  • Cons: Somewhat fragile, Ear pad coating flakes off with wear.

Best headphones I've ever owned on a budget

Chad S., Newegg
22 November 2013
  • Summary: I have owned my pair for years. Every so often I buy a new pair of headphones(usually under $30) and I always end up giving them away because these old things just have such higher quality sound. You cannot go wrong for a budget pair.
  • Pros: Great sound quality Long cord
  • Cons: Ear cover paddings wear away over time

Plug broke

Thomas S., Newegg
22 June 2011
  • Summary: I contacted Sony and they will not fix/replace them for free. They have an exchange program for $14.xx that is not worth it if I have to pay again to receive a product that will most likely break again.
  • Pros: Comfortable and exactly what I wanted.
  • Cons: After 5 months of light use, the plug no longer has a connection to the wire. I must wiggle the wire to get any sound from them(not corrosion on the connector). A wire inside the plug is loose.

Excellent, but small

N4UE, eHam.net
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Having seen all the great reviews on here, I ordered a couple of sets. Yes, they DO sound excellent, and come with a nice adapter for 1/4" jacks. For my taste, the earpads are too small. I prefer the type that cover the entire ear, such as the JRC ST-3. I found a seller on eBay selling them for

Sounds good to the wallet - Audiophile's opinion

Ryan S., Newegg
8 March 2011
  • Summary: These headphones sound pretty decent (ESP for 15$). If you've never owned anything other than apple earbuds, these will undoubtedly blow you away. They really show that even cheap "real" headphones trump earbuds.
  • Pros: Comfortable(rare for cheap cans) only 10-20$ at most sites, quality cable, surprisingly warm sound decent highs and good mid, bass is recessed but is honest and presents multiple levels, unlike skullcandies, which present that atrocious "one note bass". These headphones are super easy to drive, g...
  • Cons: The sound stage for these is fairly small even compared to other cheap cans such as the HD202. Also, no noise isolation, I strongly recommend buying over-ear phones versus on ear phones. Also listening at higher levels these tend to distort. Biggest complaint is the ear pads, mine have deteriorat...
