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 :-(

Good sound quality for the money

Plastic swivel broke on one side

Basically read the pros because in the 7 months I've had these, they have been extremely worthwhile. I'm a teenager, therefore comfort, clarity, and durability is important. These headphones are seriously comfortable and the sound is amazingly clear....

Change between mono and stereo, inline volume control, comfortable, sturdy, awesome sound clarity, reasonably priced

can't find any

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.

Not what I was expecting


The size of the headset cups are very small and the volume control does not have a wide range of level only two,which are almost identical and barely audible.

How did I not own these before!


These were recommended to me by DJ Heather, Derrick Carter, and Mark Farina. Look them up. They've all been in the DJ game for many years, and they use them exclusively. The proof is in the pudding.

Bass is CRYSTAL clear, and the highs are never overwhelming. They don't have that initial "lux" factor like some of the other over ears do, but I can wear these for hours without discomfort. I'm a DJ so this is important. I had a pair of Sony MDR's...

great sound


i purchased this product for its simplicity of having a "inline" volume control. i would say that you can here the ambient sounds in the background, such as being in a waiting roon waiting your turn to be seen you can still hear someone calling you....

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!

Long cord, great sound, good fit and a nice case to store them in

tends to make my ear hurt after prolonged use, but not enough to make me stop using them
