Pros: Quiet. Great price per gig. Performs well. Good Smart readings
Cons: Haven't owned it long enough to know if long term failure is an issue.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my 2TB Seagate that died without warning in my desktop. I was looking for a different brand than Seagate since I had an external 3TB drive do the same a few months back. According to the Backblaze article, Toshibas were rated well for low failure rates; so I'm taking the chance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fiio E6 Headphone Amplifier - E6
Pros: Amplifies sound, good sound quality, 3 presets, small size.
Cons: Broke after 2 days. Found out the micro-usb port on the device was bad, causing it not to charge. Was able to fix it by tearing it apart. Giving it a 5 star review to balance out the previous 1 star review I gave. Otherwise, 3 stars is about right due to the problems I had with it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sennheiser HD518 Over ear Headphone
Pros: Very clean sound in all audio ranges without distortion. Very comfortable to wear. Completely covers my ears without pinching them. Android phone is powerful to drive them. Audio cable detachable/replaceable. Feel very durable, even for being plastic.
The style of music I listen to is everything from Progressive rock to death metal to classical music to techno. These headphones sound great regardless what I threw at them. I was even able to hear faint sounds in the music that I had not noticed was there on other brands of headphones that I've tried (Monster, Apple earbuds, etc).
Cons: Base is heavier than expected, but not overwhelming. You can hear everything outside the speakers; this can be a good or bad thing. Audio leakage at high volume. Audio cord is quite long and the adapter is huge. Not as much bling bling compared to brands such as Beats/Monster.
Other Thoughts: These are an excellent pair of headphones. At the sale price I had purchased them at, you cannot find a better set. At normal price, they will compete with anything else out there.
If you plan on using this for a handheld mp3 player, it is highly recommended that you replace the cable as it is quite long and the adapter is huge. They should have just included a second cable instead of the adapter.
If you plan on wearing these in a public place, I'd suggest finding a way to put a removable cover over the outside vents of the speakers. This will help with outside noise and audio leakage. I had placed my hands over them as a test and the audio was just as good; with just a little less bass. For me, this can give the best of both worlds since at times I still want to be able to hear my surroundings.
