Fantastically entertaining!!!


I never spend this much on headphones but after using my friends one I couldn't do without that level of quality again. Bought one and it's the best decision I ever made. It's the new baby in the house and it is not about to be the last anytime soon.

Great sound, really comfy, great value


Love these. Bought for work but use them everywhere thanks to the great fold up design. Very comfortable, great sound quality and while I didn't buy them for noise cancelling purposes they really do muffle outside noise. Great price for the quality....

Great Headphones


Bought for a birthday present in August 2019 and the owner (who is writing this review) loves them. They are for use in the gym. They are very comfortable to wear and the sound is fantastic. Not cheap, but worth the money.
