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.

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...

Nice! For the price...

  • Summary: Only $20, and get high quality sound. Great deal, and great price. I love these.
  • Pros: Great sound! Great Base. tightly fit around head. Light, and long cord! the long cord is a perk if you do alot of work on a computer, or gaming so you can move around.
  • Cons: I've bought 3 sets of these in the past few years. There is a plastic clip thing that holds the speaker parts in place so they dont move too much. These clips easily break, and then the earphones will no longer adjust to your head. Other than that, they're great!

Pretty Good!

  • Summary: NewwEgg shipped fast as always :)
  • Pros: They fit well. A bit tight at first but once you adjust them it's fine. They sound pretty good for the price. I had a pair of Panasonics that lasted 6 years, Till I sat on them :( These are way better. Just make sure to not sit on them LOL.
  • Cons: Nothing wrong. If you are on a budget like myself they are great.

Ok, but definitely not studio quality

Robert R., Newegg
31 March 2008
  • Summary: I really wanted some good headphones so I bought 4 different sets from here and figured I have extras for the family. Go another TEN or so and get the Sennheiser HD 457's which will blow you away all around.
  • Pros: Very good price for these, double this or more at WM. Cushioned and decent at keeping out external noise. Bass intense. Says SONY on it, so people will think you probably have a really good set of headphones.
  • Cons: The bass handling comes at the expense of crisp mids and highs, not great for full spectrum. Games, HipHop, Heavier Growl maybe ok, definitely not for variety and nuance. Jazz or orchestra fans should keep their distance. Notably better than the Ice Tech "Vibe" for overall sound.

SONY MDR-V150

Adil Q., Newegg
20 March 2008
  • Summary: Purchased as an afterthought for my dorm, though I use them infrequently. Sound quality is good, but they are uncomfortable for extended use for me. They are small, hence portable, but I'd need something larger for more comfort.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, decent audio quality and great build quality.
  • Cons: Small, very tight on the ears (for me atleast).

19 February 2008
  • Summary: I'm contemplating going with the tried and true and getting this again when these die, or looking for something more.
  • Pros: I bought this from a brick and mortar retail store about a year ago after my cheap few dollar no name ones stopped working. Specifically, the right side stopped working, but the left worked. They were cheap, though I hardly used them, I wanted a real pair, and I researched and read reviews and th...
  • Cons: After one year, this pair is starting to do what my old pair did. The right side is going and I have to mess and wrestle with the cord on that side to get it to work, only to chance having it possibly die if I move. It's made of "cheap plastic" as they say, but it does have a feeling that it's of...
