5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: These are very nice headphones, had them for years without a major issue. Comfortable, good frequency response, versatile (use them for everything from audio editing to gaming), etc.

Cons: Can be a bit flimsy- actually broke one side off on the plastic adjustment- super glued it back together and seems okay now.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat For Price Range, But Not Great In General

Pros: I've had these headphones for about 7 years and I use them on my computer with a Creative X-FI sound card so I have enough power to properly drive them. After tuning my EQ The bass is good but not spectacular, the mids are very good, while the highs are nice and crisp.

Best home use headphones under $20.

Cons: These headphones have a high resistance of 70ohms, because of this it takes a lot of power to drive them and if you use them with a MP3 player or phone you won't have enough power and you won't get much bass response.

I find myself adjusting them every hour to keep them comfortable.

Other Thoughts: Not good for ipods, phones or other MP3 players. Pocket sized devices will not have enough power to drive these properly and will get very little bass response from them.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not great

Pros: Cheap.. Long cord .. Easily fits my headphone jack on my television..

Cons: Cheap in the aspect, I have to really crank up the volume to hear with these things.. My old headset, a Philips brand, I could easily hear at volume level 15-18.. With these Sony, I need to crank the volume to 40-45 to hear things properly..

Other Thoughts: These will work if you are in a pinch for a set of head phones and have little cash.. Other wise I'd say hold out for a better set...

3 out of 5 eggsWhat??

Pros: Sound OK. Good enough. Bass is not excessive.
Comfort: cups on ears are very light BUT..................

Cons: ..the plastic simply cuts into my head-it was so unbearable that I ended up using foam cosmetic pads to make cushions out of. Only one of the plastic wires even touches my head the other is mis-aligned. Weight rests on one thin plastic strip with no cushion.....
NO VOLUME CONTROL. NO VOLUME CONTROL. Big surprise to me.

Other Thoughts: These are cheap for a reason. You get what you pay for.

There are 2 plugs included: you can screw off the large one and use the small one for pc audio plug.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent price and performance

Pros: Very comfortable for long periods of use.
Nice rich sound even at low volume.
The cord is extremely durable. Good length too.
Can still hear what is going on around me. (Baby crying, wife asking questions while im playing games). To some this may be a con.=)
Price is great for what you get.

Cons: Have not found any so far.

Other Thoughts: I am very pleased with the quality of this product. Got it to replace my old pair, it was like trading in a pinto and getting a porsche.
