Build quality is good, sound quality is not.

DEBRA T., Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: I listen to mostly electronic music. Consider a good pair of Sony headphones. MDR-v6 is durable.
  • Pros: Well built, metal, removable cable, fairly comfortable (unless you wear them for hours). If there's any selling point, it's the build quality. Nice packaging. Sounds ok with some dubstep (but not all).
  • Cons: While the bass is loud, it's horrid and you can't distinguish what's going on. This ruins a few songs. Lots of muddiness. I have $20, in-ear Altec "Musx Mesh" headphones that offer much more clarity across the entire spectrum and plenty of bass. This product can't even compete with those slimy th...

painful.

joshua a., Newegg
2 December 2011
  • Summary: I wouldnt spend $200 or even $80 on these. they are good but not that good. i recommend t the Razor Orca for only $45 they have good bass are durable and most importantly for me lightweight and comfortable.
  • Pros: Very durable. Stylish. Clear sound. Cord can be removed from phones.
  • Cons: After one hour of listening my ears hurt from clamping down on them. they rest on your ears rather than around your ears an on your head. I hear complaints of "not enough bass" from people on other headphone reviews so i wanted the strong bass promised with these. And thats what i got. The bass i...

Amazing sound, mabey too much rattle

Alma S., Newegg
2 December 2011
  • Summary: Thinking about RMA'ing, definitely if tightening the screws doesn't pan out. These headphones should come with a little screwdriver, save the company a lot of recall money.
  • Pros: Amazing sound. Heavy bass you can feel. Clear highs and loud mid. Awesome construction, very flexible in addition to strong. Changeable faceplates and stuff is nice. 5 eggs for pro's, being all around awesome headphones and most importantly making awesome sound
  • Cons: I don't know if it rattled itself lose or what, but the right speaker has already developed a rattle after the bass *womps*. I've never had this happen with headphones in such a short time, especially not expensive headphones such as this! I don't have the right hex head to tighten the screws and...

Gimmick, Think "Beats"

Nicholas N., Newegg
1 December 2011
  • Summary: Again, great for dubstep and hip hop. If you have ever owned a pair of "skullcrushers," these are basically them, just with accurate highs/lows.
  • Pros: It does highs very well, mids are decent. They look great, and the design is fantastic. I find them very comfortable. Play controls work with android. Fantastic if you listen to dubstep/hip-hop.
  • Cons: Bass is overwhelming, boosted too high in these headphones. They rattle your head, like many other mainstream brands these days, rather than accurately produce that range. I listen to a lot of indie/alternative and the bass in these are just terrible, they change the song in a negative way.

Not worth 200 $

Colin V., Newegg
20 October 2011
  • Summary: I tought I would give it a try since their where 70 $ instead of 175 and I like headphones. My wall beside my compter is full of them. They do not sound particulary good. actually all the GOOD brands will have a headphone model will better sound around 100$ Go on their website ( v-moda) .
  • Pros: They look great if you like that style.
  • Cons: I have 5 pair of headphone in the range of 100 to 250 $ Those are the worst one.

Not worth $200

Jeremy S., Newegg
2 October 2011
  • Summary: These are great if you want to look cool and don't mind the mediocre sound. They are only worth $75 in my opinion. I'm using a Asus Xonar STX audio card; playing Money by Pink Floyd in 96kHz/ 24-bit. Among other FLAC quality songs.
  • Pros: Good Low range audio spectrum. The Mids sound great when Lows are not overpowering. Build quality, style, and comfort are very good.
  • Cons: Mids (vocals) sound wavering when heavy bass is played, the speaker is not able to keep audio level. Music sounds flat because the high range spectrum is toned back. These headphones do not have distinct clarity, they sound muffled.

  • Summary: DO your research. There are better phones out there. Blowing 80 bucks on these phones doesn't justify it in the end, anyway. These headphones are in the same vein as beats, and other gimmick headphone brands.
  • Pros: See other thoughts
  • Cons: Other thoughts:

Great sound but they hurt

John B., Newegg
13 September 2011
  • Summary: maybe try on a pair somewhere before buying?
  • Pros: First off, they sound beautiful. I got them on sale here at newegg for 75 bucks. I love the way the sound. No complaints there
  • Cons: They hurt my ear so much. Physically.. from the pressure. Idk what it is, maybe it's just me but I can't wear them for an extended period of time. If I do, I can't wear them the next day.

Struggling to justify the purchase, even at the bargain rate

Alexander B., Newegg
12 August 2011
  • Summary: I've been thinking about getting into mixing and producing music for some time, and after xmas I got the Block Party phones as a pure impulse purchase with a store credit following enough positive reviews and on a then-bargain price of $40 at a B&M.
  • Pros: The cups are very, very comfortable when you initially slip them on - the leather feels of extremely high quality, the foam is leaps-&-bounds better quality than the two other OTE phones I've ever owned / extensively used. The air spacing with the cups is ample distance for my ear to not physical...
  • Cons: Put simply, the difference in overall sound clarity & quality I bought them for over the Block Party set simply isn't there - except maybe the bass, but even there, the 1st sound check I did going from song to song between the two was a struggle to definitively differentiate the sensation. On top...
