Excerpt: Great audio quality, but unfortunately terrible for the on-the-go music listener in my experience. If you are looking for a portable alternative to ear buds, this is not it. If however, you are only concerned with sound quality and price, I strongly recommend picking these up.
Summary: I've owned this for two years now. I am impressed with the incredibly accurate sound reproduction across all frequencies. The base is tight, not booming. The dynamic range sounds like I'm in a concert hall. The highs are crisp and brilliant. The sensitivity is so accurate I can hear musicians breath before blowing their horns during quiet passages. The headphones are very comfortable and easily adjustable. They fold up to a compact size.
These Are Worth The Money For Sure! Great For School too.

Excerpt: These have great sound in them and look stylish, they are a little bit big and bulky but if your in to that then your set. They are good and durable , they dont come in many colors and the cords are very big.
Excerpt: I experience migraine while using this one. I am not sure if this is because of the sound or the heavy feeling of wearing the headphones . This headphone is still okay now. When I have a new downloaded song, this headphone is what I use and from there when I hear a song using this headphone I can decide if I will like the song or not. I am glad to have this headphone despite of the little problems I experienced.
Summary: These headphones are good for the price. They provide a nice balanced sound that is enjoyable. The bass is very extended and is balanced with the overall sound. The midrange is nice but is not smooth and silky; it is kind of missing the mid-low-middle end of the midrange spectrum. Highs sparkle, sometimes too much and require a bit of equalization to tune it down a bit for the ear. Great for studio monitoring but for music, they are a bit too analytical.
Excerpt: Great for the price! these headphones are comfortable, stylish and the sound is pretty amazing!! If you are looking for a great product in the price range, buy these. (I saw some complaints about comfort, my ears are pretty average and I don't sense and discomfort, just my opinion!
Excerpt: I was looking for headphones a few years back and I came across these. There are very few electronics products are perfect, including this one. But every once in a while, a gem like this comes along, a nearly perfect compromise of value, sound quality, portability, and durability. My music taste varies widely and I have found these headphones to reproduce orchestral or jazz acoustic instruments and still be happy listening to the bass drive of overproduced techno or...
Excerpt: These are excellent headphones, especially considering the cost to purchase them these days. There are obviously stories of people using these headphones for decades, and having used them for a week, I can easily see why. Everything from the packaging to the way the headphones are put together clearly shows that these are built to last.
Summary: 2. Heavy coiled cord. The coil is nice I suppose to eliminate tangled cord, but it is so heavy I have to place it in my lap to avoid the weight pulling on my head. Also makes usage with a portable device awkward because you have to stuff the huge cord into your pocket.
Pros: 1. There is no doubt that these headphones sound great. Just a great clear transparency to the sound. I have found many details in songs i did not know were there. Generally excellent frequency response including bass. The bass response is... different.... from what I am used to, maybe a little "weaker", but more detailed and accurate, and the bass hits very low. Almost like it has reduced the loud "boominess" of what I am used to and shifted that power down lower int...
Cons: 1. Cord comes down the left side. I know this is personal preference, but for me I prefer the right side since my gear is on that side of my desk, plus when walking around I like to have my mp3 player in my right pocket. But disregard if you don't care about that.
