Maybe the best cheapies


If you need a pair of headphones to hang on a computer that is used for others, these are great. Save your babies for private use on you mp3 player or kindle.

Sound good, freakin' great for the price ; Comfy, lightweight ; Pretty well made, good connectors

they didn't come with a $30 rebate

Low quality


I've lightly used these for just under 1 year and today they completely broke apart. I've had to deal with the foam ear pads falling off since they were new. If you are to snag the ear pad on anything, they pop off. It turns out that they are loosely...

Good sound quality and the volume control is convenient

Poor build quality

These headphones sound great, almost feel like there's some noise cancelling. I was able to use them in a very loud datacenter and was able to turn them up high enough to drown out the sounds of the servers

There was one side of the headphones that stopped working about a week after I got the headphones

Quite acceptable


Worth the money, but not top-of-the-line

Rugged enough to withstand my gracelessness so far (a problem I've had with budget headphones in the past) ; Decent sound quality ; Inexpensive ; On-cord volume control

As with speakers and some other headphones they pick up interference with local cellphone calls ; Imperfect fit

I was given these as a gift but for the price, these headphones are just amazing, if you're on a budget or simply don't wanna spend too much money on a pair of headphones, these are the way to go. I use these for music, gaming, movies and TV and these...

Very very comfortable. You can hardly feel them ; Sound quality is great ; They go around the ear very well, my ears are kind of big but I can wear these for hours and hours without my ears hurting or feeling uncomfortable ; They look great, very stylish

Like people have said, the volume slider does feel cheap so you might want to be careful and not use too much force on it

I like em

Great for the price really. You arent going to find better headphones for the same price or cheaper. Next step up is the 100+ headphones

Cord could be longer but its not short

Amazing Headset


Good Quality for they're price. Also comes with a seconed jack to put on your first one so you can plug it into amps and such.

These are extremely good quality headphones. Hard to break. Sound quality is good. It cancels out most backround noise. For someone who just wants to listen to their music this is the perfect set

The mearmuffs can sometimes pop out but this happens if you drop them and all you do is put them back on their pegs. They're kinda loose so running is a bad idea. But they are tight enough to walk around. Also if your listening to some good metal you...

Genius HP-04 Live 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Professional Hi-Fi studio headphones


Pretty darn good, exspecially for the price.

Feels good, comfortable, sounds awesome

Plastic slider for volume feels cheap, kind of is cheap. After playing on max volume for extended periods it buzzes, but not even remotely loud. Ear muffs slide off easy when moving around alot (Don't suggest to ride around on bikes / skateboard with.)
