I can't believe how short the cord is


I bought these for a computer that sits on the floor about 18 inches from my right foot. The cable (plugged in the front panel) is not long enough to reach my ears while sitting. I ended up taking them to work where the computer sits at waist level and...

These sound great and are relatively comfortable. I'm not an audiophile but I'm picky and these pass the test. I listen to a lot of house/electronica at work but more celtic/folk/classical at home, so I hear a variety of sounds and these don't sound...

Cable is very short - I know the page says it's 47" long but mine sure isn't. It's about 30" long, which is not long enough for anything but use with a portable media player. Maybe I was shipped a different set from what is being advertised here

Surprising Quality, Low Price


I bought a pair of these pups a few months back and when I finally got home to try them out the first thing I noticed and liked immediately was the ability to hear my music, videos, etc. over background noises which was very nice since it was what I...

Nice Sound and Volume, Noise Reduction, Simplistic but Nice Design

Non so far even after dropping them quite a bit

Warning about these headphones!


These headphones are terrible. I have never been more dissatisfied with a product EVER. They short out CONSTANTLY. I got them as a gift and tried to get help with replacing them and because I didn't have a receipt (because they were a gift) they will...

They work for roughly 4 weeks

They only work for about 4 weeks

Best Headphones


Before buying these I read probably over 100 reviews to make sure I wouldn't waste my money. After trying them on, I was completely satisfied with them. The sound is clean and crisp. It also has a good bass response!! I really recommend these if you...


No cons

Decent product.


These headphones are great for travel. They fold up nicely and are light weight. They aren't too flashy if you get discrete colours. The sound quality is ok, but there is extremely weak bass, and some sounds are muddy. I don't like how the head-band is...

Good construction. Discrete. Light-weight

Cheap plastic. Wobbly/loose pivot. Not comfortable. Scratch prone. No noise cancellation

why we listen!


I can't believe I'm listening to music again. I haven't been able to listen to music for the last 5 years of my life. Some how my ears or brain no long allowed me to use in ear earphones without causing migraines. So after years of missing music I...

quality of sounds

nothing so far

Sony does it again!


I just received my MDR ZX300 headphones today and I love them. I have a pair of Sony MDR V700 I\'ve used with meditation audio software for 10 years and those headphones are still great! I purchased the ZX300 to use with my MacBook Pro laptop to listen...
