Summary: I have had this headset for several years. I was great until I broke one of the ear piece supports. I originally paid $20 and it is still available in the mid $20 range. This is NOT a $99 headset.
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.
Excerpt: These headphones are actually my sisters, but I ended up borrowing them for just about ever. In fact, I am using them and listening to hard rock as I type this review! The sound is great and I like how it fits around my ears. The cord is nice and long, so you don't feel so stuck to the computer, electric piano keyboard, or if it is used for an mp3 player or iPod, it doesn't have to be so close to you! They're a nice size too with a great sleek look.
Excerpt: I have had a number of setsof headphones in my lifetime. I have had Koss, Bose, and Sony. I like them all but like my recent pair of Sony headphones. I love to listen to music while surfing the internet, triathlon training, or relaxing. This pair of headphones makes the experience very enjoyable for two reasons: It reduces outside noise and has a deep bass for a fuller sound quality. The majority of the time I am using these headphones for training purposes.
Excerpt: This wonderfully cushy headphones deliver wonderful sound without the icky foam that makes my ears itch. They also adjust to my rather small head. Granted, I do get a slight headache when I wear them for hours, but they're still far superior to any other headphones I've owned. My husband bought me a pair for my portable DVD player, and I was so pleased with them that I bought a second pair for my pc. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: I got these headphones quite a while ago and they're still going strong. The amazing thing was how cheap they were. Maybe I got them on a great sale, but they were way cheaper than any of the other headphones I saw at the store. And I've abused these headphones quite a bit at work, and they've never had a problem. They get caught on my chair sometimes and when I stand up to leave it yanks them really hard. Yet they've never shorted out and had any problems.
Excerpt: I had a pair of headphones that were on their last leg. I could only hear out of one side and they hurt my ears. I had enough and went to CSN.com and purchased this set of headphones. I think I paid 20 bucks for them and I couldn't be happier. I didn't want something cheapy cheap or something exuberant in price, so I chose these. When they arrived I was thrilled with the quality. The wires are wrapped in a soft rubber coating, not that hard plastic cheap stuff.
Excerpt: THese headphones are the best over-the-head headphones i own. they deliver good quality, clear sound while keeping most of the outside noise, well, outside. the earpads are soft and squishy, and they dont' pinch the head at all. the band is hard but it is adjustable- and they stay very well. they feel very sturdy in the hand and they are cheap enough that you don't have to worry when you stuff them into a backpack, for example.
Excerpt: No matter how many times I have to replace this pair of headphones, I'm always amazed at their quality, comfort, and sound. Just to be clear, I replace them only when I've either lost them, or they've become damaged due to circumstances beyond my control. They are lightweight, durable, and best of all the bass sound in any device comes through very nicely, and the music always comes through nice and clear like it should.
Excerpt: I listen to a lot of music. A LOT. Over the years I have had probably fifty pairs of headphones, many cheap, some mid-range, and even a few high-end ones. After all that, I put on these Sony headphones happily and have never wanted to upgrade since getting them five years ago. They are light, comfortable, look good, block almost all external noise, and sound GREAT.
