Super comfy

Mark M., Newegg
4 June 2014
  • Pros: Super comfy and super nice sound. It sounded better fed through my Samsung Galaxy S4, than on my work computers. Maybe I need to buy an amplifier or some dsp hardware. Overall, I can keep these on all day and not have any ear fatigue. They are that great. They beat the new ones coming out from Sony.
  • Cons: Discontinued! These are soo much better than the new ones.

2011 -> 2014, Wire kink'd

Siddhant M., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Just a couple of days ago, the left speaker of the headphone lost their connection, so unless I twist the wire correctly, the sound cuts there.
  • Pros: - Comfortable
  • Cons: - I got these from Newegg for $40 in 2011, why are they so expensive now?

Price should be around 80$

Michael J., Newegg
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Purchase at a local retailer or somewhere else for $80. I'm not sure why its doubled the price here. Maybe, a glitch?
  • Pros: It's very light weight, which means this headphones won't hurt your ear for long time of use. Not to mention, the ear cushions are very soft.
  • Cons: Since the band is made up of plastic, it has become 'loose' It doesn't arch as tight before.

AWESOME

Josiah B., Newegg
20 December 2012
  • Pros: - No need for bass-boosting software or turning up the lower frequencies too much on the EQ settings! (I only turned it up a little bit and the headphones will *shake* with the right bass tones. i.e. lots of bass if you're into that.
  • Cons: Not one thing!

  • Excerpt: The sound is better than the beats. I love the noise blocking of this headset. If they last longer than either pair of my Dres did, this will be great buy.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish

Sony MDR-XB500 is great

KangMan, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: These Sony headphones are great quality for the price. I bought this for $55 last year at FYE music store. I think the original price was almost $80. The sound quality is amazing very clear and crisp. The bass is just fantastic. It makes you get lost in your music. No matter what music you are playing it definitely gives a nice rich sound without the ruffled sound if the volume is up too high. The ear cups are very comfortable that fits well over the earlobes.

DARYL C., Newegg
10 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought these originally for my wife for music recording. The isolation is good, and the sound is excellent for the money. They're so nice I bought a set for myself. I can wear them for hours, even with my glasses, due to the deep cushions.
  • Pros: Comfortable - even with glasses, good sound, excellent value
  • Cons: no mounting for a microphone boom, no volume control

Simply amazing.

James B., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Summary: I did not purchase these from Newegg. Had I known they were available on Newegg I would have purchased them here and saved about $30-50 depending on sale prices and such.
  • Pros: The bass on these headphones is amazing. Going along the lines of the other reviewers, these make the Beats by Dre look like a jar of mayonnaise. The overall quality cannot be beat. Price to performance ratio compared to other brands is unbeatable. They're also the most comfortable headphones I have ever owned. It's like wearing marshmallows filled with clouds on your ears. I use these for music as well as games (BF3, Skyrim, etc.) and I have used them for 3 hours str...
  • Cons: None so far.

Great bass and value

JPEEZY, Staples
12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Hands down much better sound and bass than the highly priced Beats headphones. The large ear muffs make wearing them comfortable. They are however not the most sleek and fashionable headphones. They are bulky.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient
