5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good quality, cheap for what you get, very long cord.

Cons: very long cord.

Other Thoughts: i have used this for gaming, listing to music, watching movies. and it has never failed me. They are awesome for the price, and i have used them for over a year and nothing has broken yet. The only con is how long the cord is. if im listing to my phone the cord will drag on the ground. But at the same time i can plug it into the back of my computer. So it depends on what you use it for.

5 out of 5 eggsBest headphones

Pros: Excellent Base
Comfy fitting can wear it for hours
Long Cable
Looks amazing!
Cheap!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This is just what I needed for my MP3 player the bass on this is amazing the sound quality is superb. The cable is very long so you can stretch just about anywhere if you were to hook it up to a stereo.

Pros: Good sound.

Cons: not good for extended use (listening to 1 hour of podcasts starts to hurt, then toward the end of the day they're almost unwearable).

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing sound

Pros: Deep bass, comfortable, lightweight. Everything that you would want in great headphones... including the price.

Cons: None really, if you read these reviews and somehow think the cord won't be long... well...

Other Thoughts: I find it funny that a tech level of 'very high' would call these mediocre and compare these cans to ipod earbuds. That's simply insulting to these headphones. If you aren't aware that you have to break these in for a few hours first, and don't know how to properly adjust your equalizer your tech level is not 'very high'.

4 out of 5 eggsA solid buy, if you buy at a discount

Pros: There are very good noise cancelling headphones. While good bass on these things require a bit of equalization, they prove to be very effect. The padding is very comfortable and you can wear them for a few hours without your ears hurting too much.

The highs are, despite what others say, audible. This is opposed to my cheap Altec Lansing UHP206, which completely blocked out anything higher than about 18kHz.

Cons: As I previously mentioned, deep, deep lows will probably need equalization before they sound anything more than a slight static hiss. Otherwise bass is comparable to your average Sennheiser HD 201 (which also has a fairly long cord), albeit the bass is a bit deeper.

The massive size of these things call their mobility into question. Of course, if you're backpacking or a student you can just throw your mp3 in there with the huge cord, but again, the sheer size of these things mostly limit your use of these things to the home/"studio".

Other Thoughts: Long cords are commonplace in most professional environments unless you have a hookup nearby. Obviously the extension was a nice plus for me, while it's just throwing salt onto the wound for others. Obviously these are not the most professional headphones out there, but, true to the title, if you buy it at a discount, you get what you pay for.

There are no individual adjustments to each ear for size, that is done with the headband on top, underneath which is a black ribbon. This is good because you won't have to worry about getting your hair stuck in those click adjustments.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones, worth the buy

Pros: Great Bass to these headphones, comparable to being kicked in the head :P

Overall sound quality is good and clear, sounds are high quality and it doesn't disappoint.

If you treat them with a modicum of respect (something I've failed to do at times) they will last you quite a long time! I've owned mine for over 2 years now, and aside from someone sitting on them (which broke one ear piece connecter, easily glued and now unnoticeable) I've not had any issues.

The cord is quite long, and with the adapter it allows you to connect to a large variety of devices, be it an external controller, an expensive stereo, or just your computer.

I'm only just starting to get issues with the plug at the end (because it was bent slightly) but as I type this it's an extremely infrequent issue (if using MP3 i might notice once a day over several hours use due to an odd movement or kneeling) which just goes to show their quality even more (how many other companies can boast their jacks last?)

Cons: Very large headphones make them a bit awkward to travel with. Not very comfortable if you place them around your neck either (as it restricts movement unless you extend your neck like a dinosaur. rawr.)

The headband cord gets frayed quite easily if you don't make sure to always use the headband correctly (one side is top) but it's still working fine for me (just looks somewhat worn).

The cable can be too long at times as well if you're using it with an MP3, but I love these headphones so much I just coil the cord and go on my way (never had any issues due to this).

Other Thoughts: This is my main set of ears. I use them every day for several hours a day generally, be it on the computer or with my MP3, and have been for 2 years now.

One of my saddest days was when I thought I'd lost them (quite a feat to do, let me tell you) as I love these Headphones.

I bought these when they were nearly 200$ (Canadian) and I have not regretted it nor felt like I overpaid a single time since then.

I would buy them, or their predecessors, in a heartbeat.

2 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Mediocre

Pros: Very light. Long and durable cord + long and durable extender. Unecessary (for me) 3.5 mm to 1/4" adapter. Fairly comfortable. Easy to pack & go.

Cons: The audio quality was depressingly mediocre after reading so many great reviews on here and on other sites. I've owned 10+ different headsets in the past three years, ranging from $20 to $300, the majority of them hanging around the $80 - 100 range, and I must say, these do not compare. This headset has a very compressed sound, there isn't any real distinction between the different frequency ranges. For a headset that touts such "amazing bass", the only thing "amazing" about it is that it exists at all. It's a step up from most headphones that you can get at Walmart, but honestly, the JVC marshmellow earbuds have better sound quality than this, including better, more powerful, and distinct bass. These headphones are not worth anywhere near the $60 list price, they'd be a decent deal at $15-20. Stay away from them if you are picky about your audio and want enjoyable sound, distinct sound, or sound with noticeable bass-presence.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how they can tout "powerful bass". I suspect it's somewhat similar to the reviews for some Studio Monitor headphones I was looking into, where all of the reviews blathered about the great bass that the headphones had.

It's a step up from iPod earbuds (or cheap headphones with 0 bass), but not much else.

4 out of 5 eggsHelp for lessthandan

Pros: None as of yet, but will be buying them soon. Egg rating will more than likely go up considering all the other reviews.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I needed to write this review because newegg doesn't have a "comment" button for other people's reviews. *dan -- It is a known fact that motherboard audio is not for audio enthusiasts. Buy yourself a PCI audio card by Creative. You should be able to get one for a reasonable price of around 35. I hate to see you (or anyone else) drop an egg and/or not enjoy their new headphones because they don't have a decent audio card in their system.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh quality headphones, aside from the interference

Pros: Very nice pair of cheap studio headphones. Great sound quality. Extremely comfortable. The phones really enclose your ears and help block outside distractions. Super-long cord, and as if it isn't long enough, it comes with another extension cord.

Cons: BE WARY if you plan on using these on a PC; particularly a high-end gaming PC. I hooked these up to my gaming PC at home, and the headphones pick up massive amounts of electrical interference from my video card.

There's so much interference, in fact, that playing games with these headphones is simply not acceptable. Every movement and flicker on my screen creates a loud static noise in my ears. Even when I'm just idling on the desktop, very small screeching noises can be heard whenever I move my mouse cursor.

This is on my home PC. I decided to hook them up to my work PC, and they sound perfectly fine. So I'm confident it's related to having a high-end graphics card (which resides next to my motherboard's IO ports, where I plug my headphones in).

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if the fact that these headphones pick up so much interference is a good thing or a bad thing. I'm pretty sure it's not good, at least in my case.

It's a shame too. I really wanted to use these for gaming.
