5 out of 5 eggsCheap but high quality

Pros: I got these headphones for under $50 which for audiophile headphones are very cheap. Because of this, I wasn't expecting much; I thought they would either sound bad or break within a few weeks from shotty build quality. I was blown away when they came because, though a bit plasticy, the wire has a very solid feel and has a spring at the end to take off pressure. The sound is good and better suited for mid to highs and lacks bass however, if you have an amp with an equalizer, it will help rectify that problem. A computer is powerful enough to drive these headphones to a certain point and you will soon desire an amp for them. I downloaded VLC and played each FLAC or MP3 and just boosted the signal with the 0-400% VLC feature has.

- Solid construction
- Great mid to highs, lows can be good with an equalizer and amp
- Very comfortable and absolutely no fatigue. Fits like a glove.

Cons: Not too many BUT

- Lacks bass (Not too bad for me since I don't listen to hip hop or rap
- Very plastic like (though it doesn't feel like cheap plastic if that's worth anything. However it is $50 so you should expect plastic)
- Headphone pads feel cheap and like they will fall apart after heavy use. You can get replacement ones with better materials so this isn't a bad con. Not sure if the headband is actual leather but it feels like it.

Other Thoughts: $50 for over the ear headphones with near audiophile grade quality, these are a deal of the century.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Owned them for about 2 weeks.

*Decent to Excellent baseline.
*Sound feels like it's not coming from inside my head.
*Removed / Filters static noise from front panel. Super awesome!
*Excellent cord length for any purpose. Use only what you need, wrap up the rest.
*Tilting earphone pieces, allows for a one size fits all.
*Decent to Solid material. Only potential fragile piece is the plastic that holds the earphone to the headset portion.

Cons: *Ear pain.
These headphones push the earpieces inward, which allow them to custom fit about any head.

Normally this would not be a problem. However the earpiece material that cushions the distance between your ear and the earpiece is not far enough. Thus the pain. Too much pressure.

The solution I did was to just stuff the inside with paper towel pieces rolled up. No more pain. I have removed one egg because of this.

Great product otherwise. Decent value. Very satisfied.

Other Thoughts: Good product. Great sound quality. Great value.
Be prepared to compensate for small ear cushions.

3 out of 5 eggsPainful to left ear, and decent sound

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No matter what I do the left earphone ALWAYS starts to hurt after 30 minutes. The pains is very intolerable, I wish I could return these and spend more on a comfortable pair that has more than decent sound quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Good clear sound, there's a good seal around the ear-cups so outside noise is non-existent. Responded well to different EQ settings I threw at it. For the price, a very good product.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These aren't audiophile headphones but they provide good clear sound. The overall quality is better than I expected at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones

Pros: Great headphones, amazingly clear and the quality hasn't gotten any worse, even though i have a bad habit of playing my music way too loud.
long cable is great.

Cons: Hurts my ears after prolonged use. i have medium-long hair that's really curly, and it can cause interference resulting in a slight buzz that comes and goes. (i know it's my hair, i had 3 other people check them) but nothing worth removing an egg

5 out of 5 eggslove the company

Pros: im not a audio type of guy all i know is i play games i watch anime and let me tell u first time i heard of this comoany was on a buss talking to a guy who let me try these compared to my head set which was a turtle beach at the time. and that thing would shake and give great sound so i thought. and i was like man yours cant be mine well they did and i looked like a dumb but. but i tell you what they were great sounding. loved them used a friends a few months ago. and i personally compared these to a bose head set and this company shot them down and mopped the floor with them! don't over look these. i love them. you can hear a lot of things. watched one show and i heard things i never heard before. so please try them out.

Cons: not a one

Other Thoughts: they don't make a head set for gamers at a good price which sucks.

5 out of 5 eggsAudio-Technica Quality!

Pros: Very good quality build and construction.
The cord and headphone jack are that of the high-end quality you get from DJ monitor headphones - they have the jack it in a metal shield which minimizes the shorts that happens to so many headphone jacks after its pulled back and forth.
The sound quality is very good - rich highs, mids & lows and it really blocks external sound very well.
The shape of the headphones actually does NOT give sound loss. In my experience, traveling in a noisy subway, it was great.
You don't need to spend a million dollars on BOSE products when a product like this can do so well at like 2/3 of the cost of theirs.
Def. impressed and would purchase another product from this company

Cons: None.
