As amazing as they sound, sometimes, an earbud just doesn't quite make it. That's when you need full-sized headphones, headphones like these.

The leatherette ear cups give you a comfortable fit and help keep outside distractions at bay, while the powerful neodymium magnets give you surprisingly powerful but small drivers. Small drivers, in turn, keep the weight down so you can comfortably wear these for hours at a time. Adding to your comfort is the extreme adjustability for a perfect individualized fit. A five foot extension cable and a quarter inch (6.3mm) adapter allow you to hook up to your stereo as easily as your portable player, and oxygen-free copper cabling cuts down on noise and distortion from the cable itself.

These headphones would make a fine addition to anyone's listening gear. Perhaps they're just the thing you need for your own listening pleasure. Check them out and decide; we'll be waiting patiently right here.

5 out of 5 eggsCreative Aurvana

Pros: Very comfortable ear cups. Sound is excellent for games...don't listen to much music through them so cannot comment on that.

Cons: The top of the headband hurts the top of my head after 45 mins or so, so I have to keep re-positioning them every once in a while. This is the first pair of headphones I've owned in close to 10 years (long time earbuds user), so I may just not be used to them yet.

Other Thoughts: They feel kind Like they would be easily broken. I haven't had any problem with them though, and I've been using them for over six months now.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice sound

Pros: Clear sound, imo it's comparable to $200 headphones. I would say that they sound similar to bose sound stage wise.

Cons: Bass isn't overly powerful, if you try to mix it that way.

5 out of 5 eggsBest headphones I have owned

Pros: These are the best pair of headphones I could have asked for. I have owned them for about four years and I thought I should pay it forward for the good years of services they've given me and write my very first review.

Extremely comfortable, sound better than most of the other much more expensive I've tried, very durable and the materials last, both headphones have a separate cable coming out of the bottom of the ear piece, easy adjust.

Cons: Just this past month I broke one of the hinges and had to epoxy it back together, but I dropped them pretty good so thats fair. Cords are a little short, which can be a good or a bad thing because they definitely wont reach to the back of a computer tower on the ground without an extender (they wont get tangled up either and are perfect length for your pocket!).

Other Thoughts: I got them on sale four years ago for, if i remember right, around $50. Best newegg deal of the century

3 out of 5 eggsNothing special

Pros: Looks good. Sounds OK, but I expected more....

Cons: Nothing special when it comes to sound.
Not very comfortable on my head. I feel it on all the time. \
Not at all laud

Other Thoughts: For the price I expected it to be better, but I got a cheap $20 Sony headphones that sound the same and actually a little more comfortable.

Search for perfect headphones continues on!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat set for under $100

Pros: The sound is very good! Much better than any headset I have tried under $150, very light, warm sounding, soundstage is decent for closed headphones

Cons: The top of the headband has some odd pressure points that I find uncomfortable over long periods, but may be due to the lack of breaking it in. Also some distortion in the highs and lows during very bass heavy songs.

Other Thoughts: I got these a little bit ago as a compulsive buy and I gotta say they are veryy good! Specially for their price. The little Fostex driver :) I used them for music and sometimes gaming in single player (maybe multiplayer when voice chat is not needed). I own a pair of Razer Carcharias and I gotta say that these headphones are 100x better. The sound is richer and fuller and warmer than the razers. They muddiness that the razers have in the lower end is obvious once listening to these headphones. I also noticed that the mids come out more on the CAL! than the razers. Good set all around! I use these while indoors although they do not release that much sound since they are closed. I was performing a test and it was supposed to sound like someone knocking on a wooden door. I did not know this so I stood up to check who was at the door before I realized that the headphones had produced that sound. I do notice that when walking around, the cable makes an audible nuisance since the cups are plastic. Other than that, well built.

Sound definitely 5 stars.
Comfort between 3.5 to 4 (headband discomfort).
Isolation probably around 4 to 5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsHeadphones

Pros: Light weight, eggsolent sound. Included extension cable was a bonus. It's a keeper.

Cons: I have ears that stick out further than most folks. I haven't found a truly "all day comfortable" circumaural headphone. I will say I found these to be more comfortable than most.

Other Thoughts: The delivery was sooo fast...I was afraid my egg would break. Yes I got NEWEGGed! Great price, FREE Shipping and fast. Remember to keep your eyes on the EGG

5 out of 5 eggsWow! Incredible!

Pros: -High Clarity really does bring new life to my music!
-3.5mm extension cable for Computers & other accessories.
-Fantastic for Gaming - Lets you hear those fine details other gamers won't hear with cheaper headphones for an added edge. Very noticeable improvement in my gaming performance!
-Very comfortable with impressive noise cancellation.
-Adjustable height AND "rotatable" ear cups for a perfect fit. (Rarely do headphones have horizontally rotatable ear cups, so this is a "major" plus in comfort to fit everyone's dimensions!)
-Fancy design indeed-Jet Black!
-$90 discount at NewEgg, while other retailers are still selling them for over $100! Wo0O0oW

Cons: Nope. None. Nadda

Other Thoughts: -Liked the first pair so much, we bought a 2nd pair for the family.
-I play Left4Dead games with them and have been getting much more impressive stats because i can hear my surroundings much better. Same with other games.
-These were about $50 at the time I bought them and if they still are, they are the best bang for your buck - absolutely!

5 out of 5 eggsComfortable and good sound

Pros: Very comfortable on the ears, they just fit snuggly. The sound quality is nicely seperated and clean, i have not experienced any distortion or muffled sound. Quite impressive!

Cons: I guess it could be more portable. I've only really used it at home.

Also, during the first hour or so of listening, the sound was terrible! I had to "burn in" the headphones by leaving it running on music at 80% volume for 1-2 hours. Since then, the sound has been just great, so not deducting anything from the score.

Other Thoughts: I bought these on Newegg for $79 and a day later it went down to $59. Newegg refunded the extra amount. Although this is not the reason I gave it 5 eggs, I just wanted to give props to the eggcellent people at Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing deal for the price.

Pros: The price. Newegg is doing us a huge favor marking this down to $59. For the superb quality of headphone that you will get, this deal can simply not be beat.

Beautiful highs and mid-range. The lows are also very nice, but it would have been nice if there was a bit more power to them.

The headphones are physically made very well. They feel sturdy (I don't know why peeps are complaining about that.) They are also very light...which is a good thing on all counts. They also fit very comfortably and can be easily worn for long amounts of time.

It took about 30 minutes before I became used to these headphones. Once you do, they are amazing.

Cons: The bass doesn't have a huge amount of thump. However, it sounds clear and does its job well enough.

Other Thoughts: For the price!!!! I mean come on. if you need a pair of headphones for either music, movies, or gaming, these will work wonders for you. Why are you waiting? Buy them from Newegg right now.

5 out of 5 eggsA 9/10 rating

Pros: When I put these things on, it sounds like whatever I'm listening to is playing right in my head. AMAZING sound quality for the price. I have yet to hear anything better. It is slightly noise-canceling and has a thing that will extend the length of the wire. (Which you'll probably need if you're using this for your computer, like I am) Also has an adapter so you can plug it into an electric guitar or amp so you can hear yourself play without annoying others.

Cons: Wire length just a *little* short. Maybe just 1 1/2 feet longer and it would be PERFECT. (Again, this is if you plan on using it for your computer, if it's just for an MP3, you're fine). Also a bit flimsy, I'd prefer it to be a bit sturdier, but I trust that these things aren't going to break on me any time soon.

Other Thoughts: Has everything you could possibly need and more. You will definitely be happy if you buy this. NOTHING can go wrong if you buy these. (And if you're trying to decide between these headphones and the slightly more expensive Sony ones like I was, go for these, you won't regret it)
