Excellent bargain


They are certainly a bargain for the price and they well exceeded my expectations on quality. I would certainly buy another pair as well as recommend it to someone else. Great headphones for the money.

I use the Cobys for Comtek headsets. Most clients aren't very gentle, and the low price means I can treat them as an expendable.

Good deal


If you need a cheap pair of headphones for the rugrats to tear apart, these work and more durable than expected for the price. Good deal.

Really good for the price!


Not the greatest quality, but certainly adequate for simple use for games and such. And for the price, you can't go wrong.They didn't put a volume control on it, but for the inexpensive price it is, no wonder.We are very happy and will buy again.

They work but don't feel real comfortable


I use these at the YMCA so I can plug into the TV receivers on the Cardio machines and watch TV and listen while I work out. They work and they don't cost much so they are a good value but they are not real comfortable when I first put them on but...

Good price, but the cord is short

Good for the price


For 5 bucks it works just fine. Don't expect amazing sound out of them, but it'll do for the casual user.
