they're ok


i am not buying another pair of these, the speakers in them fizzed out in a short amount of time, next headphone i am going to a higher tier brand.

Comfortable, looks nice, sound quality, price

after about 3 months the left phone starting making a buzzing noise on higher volumes, so, maybe my pair was lame i don't know, they didn't last nearly as long as i expected them to

Amazing headphone for a great price


I wish I could find replacement padding.

Great sound quality, especially for the price. I've had these headphones for over 3 years now and the only issue I have is the padding started to wear recently

Wires tangle pretty regularly...though nothing too bad

Great Headset


Bought these probably around 3-4 years ago from walmart and was extremely happy when I saw newegg still carried them.

They last forever, and work great. (Have a pair that have lasted so long the ear protectors practically deteriorated away and still work like new)

The way they sit on your ear takes some getting used to

Fantastic Headphones on a Tight Budget


I ride the bus everyday for a couple hours and constantly wrapped these things around whatever I was using them with and jammed them in my pocket. After about 2 years the rubber insulation started to become grimy and dirty, and is now literally...

After owning a pair of these for a couple years now, I gotta say they are the best pair of portable headphones I've used. Sure, for the studio I use AKGs but I picked this pair up for my Zune and DS Lite and they performed admirably under extreme...

The wire! UGH! If these things don't get wrapped around your device neatly, the wire knots and tangles like crazy! It's the price you have to pay, I suppose, but one bad session took me a full 15 minutes to untangle them. It only gets worse as the...

Pretty good


I take off the removeable plastic pieces, much better for when you are exercising.

Decent sound quality ; Long cord is convenient ; For not being sport headphones, they stay on decently while running

Slips off your ears gradually ; Tangle free cord isnt really tangle free. (It does help though)

Excellent Headphone


I've owned several pairs of these headphones over the past 5 years and I love them to death. The sound quality is fantastic and they last forever. The only reason I keep replacing them is that my cats find them irresistible to chew on. lol. But I've...

Great headphones


"This is a great pair of headphones. I've owned the same pair going on two years now and I recommend them highly. They're comfortable (I even sleep with them on sometimes) and - my favorite aspect - the cord is about a foot longer or more than any...

Extra-long cord, comfortable fit

Not tangle-free, caps can come off
