3 out of 5 eggsUncomfortable but decent sound

Pros: The sound is pretty good. It seems fairly durable (by headphone standards) - no small thin pieces of plastic holding it together. The cord is a bit short but not too short. The cord seems like it won't break down easily.

Cons: These are NOT over-the-ear headphones. These are ON-ear headphones - unless you have tiny ears, they'll rest on the edge of your ear, instead of surrounding your ear like over-the-ear headphones are supposed to. As a result they are very uncomfortable after a couple hours of use. If they were a little smaller they would more evenly rest on the ear, or if they were a little bigger they would surround the ear - instead they're a limbo purgatory of discomfort.

4 out of 5 eggsStands the Test of Time

Pros: Sound is clear, and accurate.
Very portable, folds up nicely, perfect to carry in a backpack.
Competes with headphones at a higher price point.
Tangle-free cord.
Sounds and looks the same as the day I bought it.
Easy to adjust to fit, plenty of options for sizing.
Feels sturdy, unless you are trying to, I doubt you will break these.

Cons: Uncomfortable for long sessions of listening.
Major issue is addressed below.

Other Thoughts: The one glaring oversight of this set of headphones is that although the plastic appears to be high-quality and feels nice, the hinges have a tendency to be on the squeaky side of things. I have read similar reviews that support this same problem. If moving around a lot, the hinges where the headset folds up will rub together and the squeak is loud enough to be heard over any music that you will be playing.

Even with this situation with the squeaking, I would still suggest buying these if they are on sale. I use this headset for casual listening on the bus and in the car, like I said, don't expect to take these on your morning jog or walk around with these because if your pair squeaks like mine does it will get old quick.

Consider these if on sale, for stationary listeners.
