1 out of 5 eggs Terrible Headphones 09/30/2011

This review is from: Rosewill RH-40C 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Multimedia Stereo Headset


They are cheap. I got them with a two dollar "promo code" discount. Shipping was excellent, I received them in two days (thanks Newegg).


Where to begin... these are the worst headphones I have ever worn, by a long margin.
1. Sound quality is awful. Heavily weighted to high frequencies. Very little mid-tones and non-existent low-tones. Everything is just a big loud bunch of hissing.
2. They are very heavy. Noticeably heavy the instant I took them out of the shipping box. I don't want that much heft sitting on top of my head for hours. Probably acceptable from an audiophile quality headphone but not from these.
3. The tension band is extremely stiff (one-inch wide band of spring steel!). The pressure it applies to the sides of your head gave me a headache after just a few moments of wear, literally.
4. Cannot be adjusted to fit a small head at all. I put them on, adjusted them to fit and noticed they were set as small as they would go, and I have a larger than average head. Could not possibly be used by kids.
5. I didn't even try the microphone, I'm sending these suckers back before I even get around to testi

Other Thoughts:

I have always used the cheapest headphones I can find and am almost always satisfied with the sound quality they provide, so I am not just being picky when I say the sound quality is bad. I have purchased numerous Rosewill products in the past and have been generally satisfied with their quality, so I'm not just trying to knock the Rosewill brand name. I recommend against purchasing these headphones.
