Great for the price


The sound is good enough, clear, and crisp but the bass is a bit weak ; The build is light and durable, I owned it for about 3 years and its still working ; Long cord so you can move around without having to take it off. just about a meter long ;...

Its not noise canceling so you'll hear other people. IT has its cons and pros depends on the people. if you set it on highest volume you wont here others as much but others will here you if they are about 4-5 ft away... or the room is dead quiet ; The...

Totally agree with Jean Montreal


I was looking for an over the ear set of headphones, comfortable, and good sound - got none of these. Good thing they didn\'t cost much - threw them in the trash.

Excellent value, very comfortable


Excellent value, good sound for a headphone this price, very comfortable. Great for commuting and outdoor activities, when one does not want to take expensive headphones. Very good at blocking outside noise for non noise canceling headphones. Great value!

Just wonderful


Don't get me wrong. These headphones are perfect! I got them as an option with my stereo and they work great! Couldn't detect a single flaw. Even the cord is long enough for the standard user. I've found them perfect so far and do not have any...

Good sound, but cheap plastic


I bought these for everyday listening. I use them while on the treadmill. The sound quality is good. About 6 months after I bought them the left side swivel broke. It's just a piece of plastic. Now the phones don't stay on my head :-(

These headphones are a good value for casual listening

No major ones for a set of headphones in this price range

Unbeatable Sound for the Price!


I've bought numerous headphones since I recently got into recording my own music. Most of the time headphones are overpriced and don't really work that great. I stumbled across these headphones at my local walmart a few times wondering if I should even...

Long cord-1/4 adapter for other audo devices-Great

Headphones may get uncomfortable after wearing them for awhile

Excellent Sound for $30


I've been on a headphone kick ever since I got my 2nd gen 32 GB iPod Touch.  I've already bought some Skull Candy Smoking Buds INK'D ear buds based on the positive reviews here at ePinions, but also wanted something over-the-ears for at-home use.

Excellent sound for a semi-open ear design, priced right

Uncomfortable after a while if you wear glasses
