Consumer review by: MrNicejob (

great value for the price


these are advertised as great sound, durability, and lots of bass. for the most part, it delivers.

durable, sound pretty good, decent bass, good design, comfort, price

bass isn't AS amazing as advertised, but still good, and the sound bleeds a lot, but that's not a problem for everybody
