4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Comfortable, great sound, and they appear to be durable enough for me. I however, try to treat my headphones as good as possible, so it may vary from person to person. It's been 3+ months and not a single problem. There have been a few times where the cord got stuck and pulled the headphones off, but they still work great. After trying them out my friends bought some and haven't stopped using them. Has a "Mono/Stereo" switch, that has been really useful. In some youtube videos if there is sound coming out of just 1 speaker, i flip the switch to mono to save my ears, as that enables sound to come out evenly across both sides of the headphones.

Cons: I have pretty long hair, so this may not be a problem for everyone, but the pull my hair a lot. My hair will get stuck somewhere and as I take them off it pulls it out. The volume slider sometimes makes one side louder then the other, so you have to wiggle it a little to balance it out.

Other Thoughts: Headphones don't get super loud, but that's fine for me. With the volume at 100% and the slider all the way up, it too loud for me. It's a smooth slider, so there are no notches or numbers on it it just glides to wherever you want it. With it all the way down, I can use windows 7 at 100% volume and it's pretty much perfect.

1 out of 5 eggsyou're kidding me

Pros: they work?

they have a mono/stereo switch on the volume control. That will come in handy in case one of the channels fails in either your headphones (more common) or your sound card (not likely) Although hopefully these last more than the 3 - 6 months of most headphones. Each channel has a wire running directly to each speaker, instead of like the plantronics set I got that had wires snaking through pinch points which eventually failed... So these maxells should be more durable...

very rubbery cord.. seems like it should be durable.

no noise /static when adjusting the volume control.. it's a slider volume control... so hopefully it doesn't flake out after a few weeks like those little round pots always do.

Cons: tension of the springy thing on top is not adjustable. From looking at them I assumed you could slide the attachment points up and down like on any normal set of headsets that you'd find in a studio... Not so on these, unless maybe you take apart the screws... You won't be able to tolerate wearing these unless you use some tape or a couple of cable ties to tension the top elastic band. unless you restrain the elastic band thingy on top, it's going to perpetually pull your ears upwards. If you belong to some Native South American peoples who practice ritualistic ear modification of this sort then I guess this would be a plus... For the rest of us, not so much.

these are able to produce loud treble, but not so much loud bass. I'm not an audiophile so I'm by no means qualified to tell you if this is good or bad. All I can say is that to my amateur ears, these sound like they have a flat range, what bass I do hear is pretty much on the verge of fluttering.

Other Thoughts: they sound ok? I dunno, I'm not an audiophile, so I can't tell you if they sound good or not. All I can tell you is that the physical interface with your head isn't that great. They call these "studio series." Yeah... I can see these being in a professional studio... Every studio should have a spare pair of headsets within arm's reach for when the talent gets frustrated and wants to throw the headset across the room. That's about the only use I can see for these in a sound studio. I may return these... not sure yet...
