Summary: Nothing quite so startling as playing an FPS and getting unexpectedly shot, my girlfriend hits me for scaring her when I jump. Get a headphone extension cable so you don't need to stretch out the coiled cord, I have a short one on my computer desk that connects to the back of the CPU, I don't like...
Pros: I love these headphones, I think I bought them late '80's or early '90's for around $65. They're comfortable, not as light as my Sennheiser 414's, but they stay on my head better and block out external sound better (TV in the same room) because the foam ear pads surround your ears.
Cons: The ear pads. I've gone through at least three replacement sets. The first about fifteen years ago I ordered from Sony, around thirty dollars, decided to trash the headphones next time, until I found them on the popular internet auction site for under ten dollars, there's just no way I'd toss the...
Ear pads coverings will peel off after a period of time
27 June 2011
Summary: The ear pads replacement that I found online is around $6, and it is very easy to replace.
Pros: I had the headphone for 4 years and it’s still working. The cord is very long so I don’t have to take it off when I move around inside my room. Sound quality is really nice, ear pads are comfortable.
Cons: One thing that’s not good, and a lot of users are experiencing, is that the coverings of ear pads started to peel off half a year ago and I head to replace it. I can imagine from now on I will have to replace it every once while. Other than that, it’s a good headphone.
Summary: I suspect you will be able to buy these and have them last a really long time. I use mine regularly. I have subtracted an egg for the quality of the ear pads and the pad at the top of the set.
Pros: I have owned a set of these headphones for over *15* years. They sound as good as they ever have. No problems with the wires aging or the connections coming loose. I have been very pleased with the sound, using it on stereo equipment, a keyboard, and my phone, listening to music. The sensitivity ...
Cons: I have had to replace the ear pads a couple of times (Sony sells them inexpensively). The vinyl covering (or whatever it is made of) peels off, exposing the inner part of the cushion. The replacement set did not last very long at all compared to the originals. But that's really just aesthetics. T...
Summary: They break down very easily to a very small metric. Not "break" as in "broken" but that they are made to reduce to a small space when compacted. They go from full-sized, form-fitting headphones to near-walkman like qualities with relative ease.
Pros: At first, I was reluctant to buy a product for speakers with an audio response range that was merely average ( that is, a product that measured its response range as cancelling OUTSIDE noise as opposed to measuring INSIDE noise) and was nowhere near what top-of-the-line models advertise in decibe...
Cons: They are a bit loose-fitting, but that is an individual quality. My head is a bit small, or at least I suppose it is, so even when the headphones are tiered to their smallest state I still feel a little slack in them. If you've got a big head, you will probably fill right at home wearing these!
Summary: pretty good headphones when it comes to sound & quality... but not as good as my SENNHEISER HD 485 which broke a while back... those were the best cans i have owned till this day wish newegg still sold them
Pros: pretty solid set of cans... the cord is pretty heavy duty (doesnt feel like ill rip it apart) i have put them through a pretty good break in period, havnt notice a significant difference from the first day i had them but i suppose they sounded pretty good to begin with sooo....
Cons: they get pretty warm when in use for long periods of time... i could be at my PC for over a few hours... & after the 1st hour i am sweating wish more cans on the market would come with a cloth foam pad & not the pleather junk
Summary: That's right, I've had these headphones for over 5 years. I bought them at Guitar Center when I was first getting into studio recording. I decided to write a review now because I was curious as to how much they are selling for these days (bought mine new for $100).
Summary: Happy owner since 2000 (the model has been around since the mid 90s). These headphones far exceed my expectations. I still have a wonderful listening experience every time I put them on.
