Not for glasses wearers!


These headphones are so extremely uncomfortable if you wear glasses! The part that hooks behind/over your ear has to share space with your glasses, so they pinch and make your glasses sit cockeyed. That makes me dizzy and uncomfortable. They only way I...


extremely uncomfortablr

Tony the Tiger thinks they're Grrrrreat!


I like these phones cuz they're light weight, and don't fatigue my ears. I wear them when i get tired of by buds or my full size studio type phones. I find the sound adequate for casual listening. For the price, you're not going to get deep bass...

Good sound for the price, light weight

Very good


It feels great on your ears. Nice loud headphone with great sound. I had it over a year and haven't blown out like other cheapo headphone. It was worth every penny. It doesn't hurt your ears after a long time

No shut down noise

Only for the budget listeners


For those that don't like to read long reviews, now is your time to keep moving. For the rest of us, prop your feet up and get a drink because we are about to get serious.

clear highs, snug fit

polarizing fit, no lows

Good, not as bad as others make it seem


I think that this headset is pretty cool, not like all the others are saying.

Horrible Headphones At Any Price


Other than reliability (which I can’t judge after only 5 minutes of listening), these headphones may be the worst headphones I've ever used. Just wanted an inexpensive set to use at work when I'm listening to voice mails and watching the Daily Show...

Taking them back


I got these becuase I could not find a pair of the MDR-J10. I had previously in years past had a pair of these behind the head style headphones and I was satitisifed with them but these are not the same product. They felt cheap right out of the box....

Very Poor Quality


Very poor quality headphones. But I guess that's what you get for $15. Bad fit, bad, "tin-ny" quality, cord is too short, no bass at all. Turn the volume ALL THE WAY UP if you're in the gym and wanna hear your music. Don't buy.
