4 out of 5 eggsGood for most things

Pros: Well priced and super comfortable. You can really wear these for hours and it won't hurt your head.

Sound is usually pretty good but in some circumstances the sound can be a bit muddy. Nothing unexpected for a headset this price though. If you're just listening to youtube videos and a bit of music and want something comfortable and decent sounding these are for you.

Cons: Bass is weak loose and disappointing, if you listen to songs with a lot of bass I suggest going with something else, these won't cut it for you.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great quality, even after 2 years. Comfortable too.

I use them for audio mixing, and I couldn't be happier with the performance of these headphones.

Cons: Headband is starting to wear quite badly, almost all of the vinyl has come off.


Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a 6.3" to 3.5mm converter if you need it.

2 out of 5 eggsThey're nice for a little awhile...

Pros: For a short time these headphones are comfortable. Good sound quality. Good isolation.

Cons: They are bit weighty. After about an hour your ear will hurt a lot. The cord isn't secured well and after a short time the position the cord was in would effect if the left earphone played at all. Your ear will get very hot.

Other Thoughts: While the sound is quite good they are just uncomfortable for longer than an hour and give a low to mild neck fatigue. The cord seemed to bring this items downfall (well and comfort).

3 out of 5 eggsAT Headphones

Pros: They are comfortable

Cons: Not overly impressed with audio quality. I wanted some cheap headphones to listen to some podcasts/etc, so they worked. I was hoping for better overall sound, but for the price, cannot complain.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Headphones

Pros: I'm not really one of those super picky audiophiles, but I think these sound great. They're very comfortable for a long time. They can easily manage the range of pitches that a normal user would throw at them.

Cons: Only thing is they have a large stereo jack, so you'll need an adapter to listen to your iPod or PC. I wouldn't expect them to have a 3.5 mm jack, but it would have been nice if they included the adapter with the headphones.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Best headphones I've ever owned, worth the price; Extremely Comfortable like your head on a pillow. Best sound; brings out crisp sounds of music and on video games. Once you put them on its like you are in your own world; Love them.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on hooking up to your computer, you may need a Audio Jack converter. unless your computer has a large stereo Plug.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!

Pros: Comfortable, loud, no distortion, long cord. Replaceable ear pads, cables and drivers. Whats not to love.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I live right below my parents so at night when I have to be quiet headphones are my life line cause I'm always gaming or listening music. Bought these to replace my deteriorating Sony MDR-V600 that my dad gave me. This pair blows the sonys out of the water, I am very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsJay - Revision

Pros: 5-28k Hz, Replaceable Drivers, Hvy Impeadence 60 ohms (means they can Handle all that your practice amp and SD-1 and DS-1 can give it, I cranked my Peavey blazer 158 last night and Played Pantara, Gruntruck and some alice in chains
and it all sounded live !!!!!

Cons: Not wireless but I hate wireless So I put this here in case someone would think it was a bad thing, but over all like I said Before it would be nice to fold them up but with all the other pro's this is such a small concern that it doesn't effect anything on the grand scale.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to Mention these ARE NOT for your iPod or things like that. Those items do not have enough power or Impedance, These are for studio, AMP or DJ'ing, These are way nicer than the $250 Sony's I had for work in radio and I tested these on my electronic drum kit and I cant think of anything else I would rater have. There's nothin like wearing a Marshall or Peavey full stack on your head !!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsSPECTACULAR ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Pros: Everything.... Especially the way the ear cups swivel and how padded they and the head band are there are no ear issues at all except maybe a little heat now and then but they are ported so its not from the drivers but my head so it could be just me.... :)

Cons: Not Free and it would be cool to be able to fold them up and put them in a bag err somethin but for the quality of the sound and the comfort there is nothing better and a spot in the pack will be fine...

Other Thoughts: Picked these up at Music store out here after seeing them on the egg, I wanted to hear them before I paid anything because I need them for Practicing My guitar all night long in an apartment.
I swear on my life the most Incredible Set I have ever Listened to anything through, So I got 2 more set's for Home and Studio.
The produce Sound's The human ear can't even pick up on and on top of that if your playing with any kind of Distortion or Overdrive these sound so, so nice and they can handle it too !!!
