5 out of 5 eggsWorked great until I rage destroyed them

Pros: Really liked these but I slammed them against my desk when I died in a game, which broke them in half. So sad.

Cons: Can't hold up against a rage quit so get something stronger if you want to occasionally slam them against your desk.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Good sound range, better than any speakers or other headphones I own. I don't have anything fancy so not a big surprise there. Highly adjustable and pretty comfortable, can accommodate large heads no problem. Handles bass very well, high volume is no problem. Build quality is very good but it's a fully plastic unit. The cord is long and doesn't tend to wrap around itself.

Cons: The cord is too long to be used with an mp3 player or laptop - these are meant to be used when you're going to be stationary. There is no padding at the top of the head, and being bald this set can dig into my scalp at times.

Other Thoughts: Good headphones. I foolishly got these as carry around replacements for some lesser Sony earbuds that stopped working. I would buy again, but not to use while on the go.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality for a low price

Pros: Clear mids and highs
Decent Lows
Had These For years. They have survived many raids, Afghanistan. Black Label Society and Alice in Chains at ridiculous volumes. I am very pleased with these

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know if these could be used with a headphone amplifier. I doubt I will try. I have seen that JVC has a newer model of these. I may try them out and post a review.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound for the price

Pros: Sound isolation is fantastic, i'm no sound engineer, but it's got some of the best sound of any headphones i've ever used. Amazing sound for the lay person.

Cons: When I would wear them for hours at a time, I would eventually get a pain on the top of my head where the cross piece rests on my skull. Maybe my head's a little too skinny, but it felt they weren't all that secure, jostled a little. And somehow, after probably 4 months, one of the tiny cushion pads fell off without notice. Definitely got more use out of it than I paid for though.

4 out of 5 eggsIts a really long cord

Pros: Sound quality is on par with what you would expect for the price. The cord is very long, which is awesome if your computer isn't right next to your face.

Cons: Very little padding on the head area, can be uncomfortable with extended use.

5 out of 5 eggsSound great

Pros: Have purchased 5 of these for Christmas gifts for use with MP3 Sansa Clip MP3 players. The people that got them are very happy with the sound

Cons: only drawback to these is the extra long cord for them 6' would have been more than enough for the usuage they were bought for

4 out of 5 eggsSound almost great-comfy? No.

Pros: They sound almost as clear as the best phones I ever owned (sony mdr xd 100)-and they do kind of look the same. These are just slightly more "muffled" to me. For this price nobody expects awesomeness I hope.

Cons: Bah! If I had only noticed the rx700 with their huge headrest before I got these!
These tiny four pads you see are extremely small-width seems smaller than my pinky's tip.... that is no way to create good support: and so I lament again that I did not get the rx700s, which are also quite cheap.

Other Thoughts: I suppose some here could get used to wearing these, because they are fairly light on ears as well as light overall.
Just consider the rx 700 model.
Whatever you do don't get the free shipping.... cause it's pretty random: they will state to deliver on one date, then no delivery happens and you'll have your hopes up that perhaps next day it will be there... will it? HA!
