  • Summary: Perhaps it was just these headphones or perhaps it happens in all closed supraaural phones, but these cans provided an incredibly poor seal and isolation. When I wore them, I kept hearing this high-pitched noise like the sound of air being passed through a very small crack in your window. The only way I could achieve some good sound is if I actually pressed the two sides to my head with my hands. I think that alone speaks volumes on the quality of these cans.

Great Speaker / Poor Manufacturing

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Superglue kept them going for so long, but they are not bus or kid friendly. So while I still say you should get them, make sure nothing gets dropped on them and they are purely for desktop use. These also cancel out noise, but music has to be playing and played loud, none the less they do drown out the bus engine and some noisy passengers.
  • Pros: The speakers are great in these things totally worth the money. They are very comfortable and I can wear them for hours on end. Very long cord.
  • Cons: The cord is annoying because it tends to curl up a lot just under normal use, but that is easily fixed. I don't like the plastic arms they used to hold the speakers, the headband holding the speakers is very weak and isn't solid.

  • Summary: While I don't own these anymore and they may not be as fresh in my mind as they should I know I liked these headphones.  Despite being slightly uncomfortable and not something I would wear for an extended period they had a great clean and clear sound and I don't remember any problems with to much sound getting in, or to much music getting out in public.
  • Pros: affordable and clean sounding
  • Cons: uncomfortable

A good deal for a good product.

  • Excerpt: I got 2 pairs of these headphones with reward coupons from a local electronics store, 1 for my son and 1 for myself. They have been a great addition to our household. Both of us typically go through headphones very quickly, losing the earpads or if using earbuds, the buds pop off. These headphones are very durable and I love the face that the earpads stay put. I also like the feature of the swivel to be able to lay them flat or adjust on the ear.

Decent Headphones

Anonymous, Newegg
12 March 2007
  • Summary: They arent noise cancelling
  • Pros: These cans have some pretty good sound. Excellent bass and mid range, but the treble does sound just a tad muddy.
  • Cons: Yes, they do get extremely uncomfortable after just a few minutes of use. They dont cup all the way around the ear and that causes problems.
