Labtec Elite 840

 

Every time we publish a headphone review, someone has to mention about the Labtec Elite 840 in the comments section. I own one too and thought that it wouldn't be a bad idea to let you know what I think about those.

Excellent sound quality, good bass, comfortable ear pads, long cable, great price

Average lower mids, availability might be an issue

Best headphones at approximately $20

 

I've owned these headphones for a couple years now. This Christmas I'm upgrading to some Sennheiser HD 212 Pro headphones, and to say the least, I'm VERY reluctant to give up these cans. I really don't feel any incentive to upgrade other than knowing...

Crisp highs Powerful, clear lows Good mid Comfortable Long chord

For $20 there are no cons on these seemingly perfect cheap headphones

Can't beat these headphones

 

As an ex-gamer (although I still play a bit, just not so much) I would frequently sport these headphones at LAN parties, and would often try on my friends' headphones just to see the difference. Several pairs of 'phones I tried on were $60 or more and...

Long, gold-plated cable. Comfortable earcups, and great sound quality

cable may wear after a while. Maybe b/c I was too rough with it though

Affordable quality head phones

 

This mighty head phone from Labtec packs a punch for a pretty low price. Designed specially for accurate bass reproduction, it delivers pretty well. It managed to reproduce sound accurately even when the volume was cranked up high.

Good bass, price, long tangle-free cable, self-adjusting padded headband

Slips of easily, slightly on the bulky side

Consumer review by:

Best 20 bucks I've spent in my life. Without a doubt.

 

I'm really picky when it comes to sound quality. I look at people listening with cheap Sony headphones, and I can do nothing but cringe. THAT ISN'T HOW MUSIC IS SUPPOSED TO SOUND!!!

20, unbelievable sound quality for sub-50 dollars, comfortable for hours

Bass is weak, but with a boost (which basically everything has) is superb

Consumer review by:

Unbelievable!!!

 

What an unbelievable deal! Even disregarding the ridiculously low price that I paid ($1.99 Canadian after $13 mail-in rebate) these headphones are extremely comfortable and are of audiophile quality. If I wanted to be really picky, in fact it is not...

Very comfortable. Wonderful sound. Light single sided cord

None whatsoever at this price

Consumer review by:

Don't forget you have them on!

 

I needed a new pair of headphones primarily because my older ones didn't make good contact at connections (sometimes I would lose sound on one side). The older ones were given to me indirectly because the guy wanted to upgrade and I was amazed with the...

Self Adjustable, comfortable, great sound

Exterior noise, big size

Consumer review by:

Budget Reference Headphones!

 

The Labtec Elite 840 is simply the pinnacle of where value per dollar meets performance! OK, review over...Not quite but that pretty much sums it up though. In addition they are an attractively styled lightweight complete earcup binaural design with...

Beautifully sounding headphones! Comfortable and lightweight. Highly detailed.Accurate

Some sound can be heard by others nearby. Plastic earcup swivels susceptible to breakage

Consumer review by:

AUDIOPHILE QUALITY AT BARGAIN BASEMENT PRICE!!!!!!

 

First, let me say that I whole heartedly agree with "shido6". I think many people will simply overlook these great headphones because of their ridiculously low price. I've listened to dozens of headphones in my 30 plus years as an audiophile. Believe...

Pristine highs, transparent midrange and deep, tight, well controlled bass, very

Good for starters

 

Well I happen to love headphones, and probably have 8 pairs in my room. Everytime I see a pair, I have to get them. I've had the GE vibrating headphones, which were good until the vibrators wore out, and rattled, so those were gone. After that I bought...

Good treble, very comfortable
