Pros: Build quality is tough, durable. Pins don't wear out like the ones you might find on e-Bay.
Cons: Doesn't come with an M3 screw to mount with, oh well!
Other Thoughts: $2.89 shipping seems a bit too much, I suggest trying ShopRunner's trial if you aren't/weren't already a member.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pioneer SE-M390 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Supra-aural Bass Boost Audio Headphone
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.
This review is from: Altec Lansing BackBeat Plus Noise Cancelling Headphones With 6 Piece Custom Fit Kit
Pros: As someone else said, it's good if the price is low, otherwise I wouldn't bother.
Black and yellow looks pretty sleek
Pretty okay sound for 8$ headphones
The cloth cable can't get twisted.*
Sturdy 3.5mm connector, compared to other earphones
One of those sliding things so the head cables don't get tangled.
Cons: This "6 Piece Custom Fit Kit" is nonexistent, I only received the headphones, tied together with a twist tie in a plastic bag.
The cloth cable can't get twisted, by that I mean it wont go in 40 different directions until you twist the base of the connector to the right side. It will, however, get little "half-knots". You'll see these as loops in the cord, but you'll notice they'll be straightened out of you tread your fingers across the cord.
There is also a very apparent lack of bass on these things. Additionally, no frequency response info is given, making these things difficult to compare to other products.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
