5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: MEElectronics HT-21 Headphone:
1. Great price, bought on Newegg Shell Shocker.
2. Durable - used almost daily since 07/06/12. No wear & tear.
3. Lightweight, comfortable over head and on my ears. I hate earbuds!
4. Very good sound quality. Clear sound, deep bass.
5. Best headphone fidelity I’ve ever had including several more expensive, bulkier headphone.
6. Folds easily for storage and travel.
7. The 3.5mm plug & 1.2m single cable is tangling free. Jack fits snugly, easy plug in.
8. Manufacturer warranty of 1 year limited is adequate.

Cons: 1. Oddly seems to amplify surrounding noises & conversations.
2. Hate I didn’t buy several more at the sale price!

Other Thoughts: Would buy again, highly recommend. Hate that MEElectronics no longer makes this model!

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Higher sound quality than I expected for 20 bucks.

Good design.

Cons: There is a bit of sound leakage so you can hear if someone else is using it, but this is not really enough for a bad egg.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the price

Pros: Light, cheap, foldy

Cons: None for the price

Other Thoughts: I'm not an audiophile(anymore) since I got old and my hearing went in the can, but these little guys sound good for the money, much nicer than earbuds of the same price. I game with em, watch movies, music, etc. Cheap enough that if I screw them up or loose them its no biggie. Good stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent pair of headphones!

Pros: - Price
- Very solidly built for the price(these don't feel like they will break easily)
- Terrific sound quality after about of a week of burn-in
- Not much sound-leakage
- Easily folds into a convenient shape and size, can fit nicely into a jacket pocket
- Single-sided, thick cable
- Though not noise-isolating, a great deal of noise is blocked
- Fits my relatively-large head
- Lightweight

Cons: - Comfort level is OK at best for me, more than tolerable for my ~40 minute commute though. I do have a relatively-large head though, so for most people, these should feel fine.
- The pouch included has a rather poor-quality drawstring, but this is hardly a con.

5 out of 5 eggsSecond review. After spending a lot of time with them.

Pros: My original view still holds. Over time, the sound has improved slightly. The bass has deepened, but it's still clean/tight. The treble has smoothened out quite a bit. It was grainy at first, and now it's crisp and smooth. This headphone really shines with acoustic music, but holds its own even when listening to metal. The grain/crunchiness of the treble is no longer an issue.

Cons: None. At this price point, it's nearly impossible to complain. If I had to point out any flaws, it would be build quality, but it's adequate at this price, and I have not experienced any breaks/cracks or shorting out. Still functioning perfectly, and I've fallen asleep wearing these many times.

Other Thoughts: I've been listening back and forth between these and the Bose AE (silver first version) and I believe I prefer these now, surprisingly.

It's somewhat painfully to admit, because these are a fraction of the cost. I think it's time to sell the Bose and buy a backup pair of these.

4 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT

Pros: Light weight with better than average sound. I have owned many headsets since the late 60's and these are some of the best.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought because of CNET's review and am not disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsSound great

Pros: They sound great to me. The details and realism from the highs was the first thing I noticed, I have other headphones like ATH-M50 and while these don't have the bass I'm not complaining because they sound great. I really like the sound.
They seem comfortable enough and the construction is what I expected for the price or better. The cable seems really nice for portable use.
Over all I like them better than the Sennheiser PX 100-II.

Cons: This design of headphones is not sturdy when folded so it is necessary to be careful of where they end up in your bag. A hard case would be one solution.

They don't isolate well but I think that's part of what makes them sound good.

Not for bass heads but I don't mind electronic music and dupstep on them.

Other Thoughts: Got them on sale for $5, I have not heard anything better for under $50 so I don't think they are a bad deal at any price really.

3 out of 5 eggsA regretted buy

Pros: - Portability (they fold up nicely)
- Low-profile

Cons: - even though they fold up, they do not stay that way. I would have to jam them into the included storage bag.
- somewhat flimsy construction, headband is too thin
- earcups a little too firmly padded, hurt ears after a while
- MEElec logo on earcups scratches off easily

Other Thoughts: While I am not an audiophile, I do collect as many budget head- and earphones as I can. These HT-21 headphones do not do the good name of MEElectronics justice, as I can definitely recommend their M9 earphones, as well as their customer service (my pair of M9 broke, replacement sent immediately upon reception of sent-in broken earphones)
As for the category of on-ear headphones, I definitely prefer the Philips "The Snug" on-ears to these ones. Bass on the Philips' is much better than the HT-21, and construction feels much more sturdy.

And as always, thank you to the reviewers at Newegg and at countless other tech forums
