5 out of 5 eggsWub Cannons

Pros: Beautiful sound quality, amazing bass and infrasound, solid construction, super comfortable

Cons: Heavy, but I hardly notice it anymore

Other Thoughts: I use these for everything from voice chat to gaming to music. Excellent for all applications.
Recently, I dropped them and they dented my wall. Suffered no damage.
Also, they really can get your ears shaking all the way down to 7 Hz without uncomfortable pressure. Tons of fun.

4 out of 5 eggsGood headphones

Pros: Good strong bass
Well built

Cons: Average mids and Hi's

Other Thoughts: These are good solid headphones... with above average sound. The mids and hi's are adequate, while the bass is very strong (no distortion)..... They appear to be well built but one thing you need to realize... these things are HUGE...... Overall I would recommend these

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Huge bass impact without losing quality in the highs and mids
Little to no sound leak
Flashy look, camouflage headrest
Comfortable to wear even if they weigh a ton

Cons: These things are HEAVY. JVC does a nice job making up for it with a comfortable head rest though.
They're huge.

5 out of 5 eggsFor what it's worth, it's what I expected...

Pros: The sound is most definitely rich and the bass exceeded my expectations. There's almost too much bass, but after a while, you could get used to it and not notice, but I haven't had these long enough to judge that. The overall sound is quite nice.
I like the thick cord so it won't break as easily as most thin corded headphones/earbuds. Although I was shocked by the length, but I hadn't looked into that, so it's my fault. But it wasn't an issue though. There's also some padding of memory foam which is also quite nice, but gives a bit extra to the tightness feel, but that's not too big of an issue. I hardly notice it.

Cons: Yes, I have read that they were unusually big, but I was willing to deal with that. It isn't much of an issue because I'll be using them on my desktop PC all the time.
They almost seem to crush your head at first (or at least that's what I thought) but then I realized how big of a baby I was and that it isn't really that bad. Just forget I said they crushed my head. However, they are slightly tight on the head, but it'll stretch naturally to the correct size of my head in due time.

Other Thoughts: Overall, these are really nice! The sound is worth what it costs (maybe even more?), but comfort-wise, it's gonna have to get used to. Or perhaps I'm just complaining too much. It isn't as bad as I say it is, so don't take it too seriously. Yup :D Real awesome. Glad I got these :3

3 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Cord

Pros: They were nice headphones, not to big, and had decent sound quality in my opinion
good shipping btw :D

Cons: The cord seemed to have been moved around to much and one of the headphones would cut in and out untill it just stoped working.

Other Thoughts: If you are in a pinch and plan to not abuse them to much, go for it. they have a short cord for use with pc less its right next to your head or a Desk "top" meaning its on top of the desk. ide get sony mdr series if i were you, worth the extra $40, i got the mdr-xb700's, amazing.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat, for a while at least

Pros: Great bass, very comfy, and they seemed sturdy.

Cons: They stopped working after a few months. I'm really not sure why. The drivers just started buzzing a lot and then quit working. It was probably my fault somehow, but I'm still disappointed nonetheless.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good!

Pros: First off, I'm not an expert on audio equipment. But this headphone is by far better than my last pair; an around the neck head set w/ mic. It is used only for with my laptop; music and video games. I do wear these for long hours of game play with little discomfort. I play both so much that I'm wondering why I didn't upgrade sooner. Bass is good, noise canceling is solid & price is right!

Cons: If you've never wore around/over-ear headphones before, it may take some time to get accustomed to it. It took me a week. I've no experience with this style and I have a large head which didnt help but I finally adjusted. Others mentioned it was heavy & bulky but I'm also a large guy so to me it was "just right". =)

Other Thoughts: I'd definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a new headphone.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great sound, especially bass. I have compared them to a nice pair of Sony and Bose and they are very competitive. I think the bass is nicer on these than the Sony and Bose. They are pretty comfortable and noise canceling is decent, not as good as Sony or Bose though. I use them for my laptop and Chromebook.

Cons: Slightly heavy and big.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for good sound and deep bass if a little bigger headset doesn't bother you.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: Amazing bass response for the money. Very comfortable to wear for several hours - over ear design is great! Fits on my huge head without any discomfort. Padded headband is great.

Cons: Wish that the cable only went to one side and that the other speaker was connected through the headband, but nothing major.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend these to a friend looking for decently priced over-the-ear headphones with good sound quality.
