Excerpt: These headphones retail for about 50 bucks and you can get it for cheaper if you shop around. You get an okay pair of headphones for 50 bucks. As for the build quality, it’s a full-on plastic construction. It uses metal hinges that slide up and down. I’ve used them pretty vigorously. I’ve gone skiing with them twice and they’ve held up marvelously. I haven’t discovered any problems with the hinges or build but like I said, it is 100% plastic.
Summary: I bought these on the strength of wearing them in a shop and hearing them play some generic easy-listening music that I hadn't heard before. The strong bass and comfy feel convinced me to give them a go, but upon plugging them in to my own music players they were a little disappointing. The sound is pretty lacklustre with detail and tone sacrificed to feed the bass.
