Very Satisfied

 

I used these nightly to watch TV lying down. Good Fit, Good Sound. light weight ; They broke where the adjustable earpiece slides in and out when something about the weight of a brick fell on them from about a 2 foot drop. Even then I was able to...

Tiny Connector

 

Guess this connector got lucky that it was paired with such headphones.

Good quality sound, looks nice. ready to go right out of the package

Headphones are tight, will hurt ears at first. Male connector is very small. This causes a bad connection. You sometimes have to wiggle the connection around to get full stereo sound, but it still works

Excellent pair of headphones

 

Other headphones I've seen within the same price range are inferior to these.

I love the adjustment range, it's very broad and even fits my big head. I would call the sound quality average, but not bad. I also find them rather comfortable and the extra replacement pads are great.(I already used one because my dog chewed it.) The...

After a few months the adjustment tension is below par. Only con I could think of.

Not very comfortable

 

I'm surprised at all the posistive reviews these are getting. I just needed these for audiobooks so sound quality didn't matter much. Other reviewers said they were comfortable, but I have to disagree. The earpieces are tolerable, but there's no...

The price

Not very comfortable.

It works

 

Not much to say, they work fine.

Well, they work. For $3, can't go wrong!

Costs more to ship than to buy

Not impressed

 

Maybe I was expecting too much. For the price I guess you can't expected too much. If I paid more I would have rated them lower.

Better than the headphones that go into your ear in my opinion

The sound quality wasn't that great
