Summary: I'm comparing these to similar heaphones from Panasonic and Philips, and a pair of earbuds from Panasonic. All similar prices, $10-25. The design is poor, they are adjustable in size but they can't fit my head very well.
Summary: I give these headphones a 3 because they are OK for CW use. As far a phone goes, I found them to be "mushy" in the upper audio frequencies and very disappointing in pulling out weaker signals under poor conditions. If you only talk to stations with 59+ signals, they would be adequate.
Summary: Bought these a little under 2 years ago from a best buy store for $16. I used these exclusively on my computer. To be honest, I was pleased with these headphones until this past summer. The plastic on the right side of the headband started to get flimsy.
Summary: I am a Sennheiser man, just needed something to use until the HD-555's came in the mail. Not disappointed and am glad i found something so good so cheap. Will consider Sony three or four years from now or when ever i need a new set of cans.
Pros: Very even sound. dose not seem to color the sound much. Very good with Jazz. Bass is not over powering but can be adjusted for your tastes with any EQ be it analog or digital. Anyone who says these have poor treble response should try listening to classical music. Closed back is the way to go if ...
Cons: Not many, I like these! At 24 ohmz i thought they would be louder with a PC or an ipod.(loud will ruin your ears!) Had to make my own pad for the headband. (duct tape and an old sock) I do not like having a sock on my head or tape for that matter. Comfort is an issue with these regardless of old ...
Summary: Reasonable performance, to my ear, is obtained by tilting the entire spectrum equalization curve +3db/octave starting at -6db and 100Hz; even with that correction the performance lacks a certain "crispness" and clarity.
Pros: Low price, well constructed, plenty of cord length, reasonably comfortable
Cons: Almost no high-end response that I can detect and bass is too heavy....but, for fourteen bucks what do you expect?
Summary: I've had these cheap SONY cans for about three years now and the earpiece has finally worn off. Hence I was in the market for a new pair of everyday cans.
The SONY studio monitors were my go-to headphones for general use (watching movies/listening to music on my laptop).
Summary: If you are looking for a cheap set of headphones to hold you over for a while, these will do it. If you care a lot about sound quality, do more research and spend a little more to get something better than these.
Pros: Low cost. Low end notes (bass) sounds pretty good. Cushion padding on the earpieces is nice.
Cons: Higher frequency notes (treble) does not sound very good. As other reviewers have said, they are very TIGHT. They kind of squeeze your head. I think that I will try the trick the one person used with stretching them over a book when I am not using them.
