This review is from: JBL J88 Premium Over-Ear Headphones with No Mic - Orange
Pros: Very comfortable to wear for extended listening sessions.
I like the fact that the removable cable locks in to place.
I'm not an audiophile (I would be if I could afford it) but like almost everyone, I LOVE my music! These cans, IMHO, have a very nice frequency range. The bass isn't gonna rattle your teeth, but you definitely know it's there. The bass is very crisp and punchy. It's not muddy at all. Throw in the beautiful sounding mids and highs and your ears will be quite happy!
Cons: Some people reviewing these have stated that the plastic head band has broken on them. I can see that happening if you're not careful putting them on or taking them off. They're a bit flimsy. There IS a metal band running through the plastic headband, so it's not like they're gonna break in half. Just be gentle with them and you should be fine.
The cord is a little short for my taste. Another couple feet would have been nice.
Other Thoughts: You're definitely gonna notice a difference in performance depending on what you have these plugged into. For example, they sound nice plugged into my iPhone, but it just doesn't have enough juice to push these. I have a dedicated sound card in my PC with a 600 ohm headphone amplifier that really makes these sound amazing!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does exactly what it says.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to hook my Xbox 360 to my HDTV via the PC VGA input. Works perfectly :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Hits HARD, even at low volume.
Floor rumbling lows.
Nice hook-up options.
Plenty of power.
Cons: The Grill Cover Offers NO Protection (except from dust)

Other Thoughts: I got lucky and caught this on sale for only $179. It's a STEAL at that price. I upgraded from a Polk Audio PSW10, which was plenty of power for what I needed......but I always go for overkill when it comes to my man cave. Haha!
The only thing I DONT like about this sub, is the grill cover. The PSW10 had a very sturdy webbing of plastic under the fabric of the grill cover. If something were to hit it, it would take a LOT of force to break it. It offered a great level of protection. The PSW505 grill cover is simply the fabric stretched over a square plastic frame. There is nothing guarding the speaker except for the micro thin layer of fabric. Keep this in mind if you have kids or lots of friends over all the time.
Reading some of the reviews on here, it seems there are a LOT of broken grills being delivered with this unit. I'm happy to say that my entire unit arrived in PERFECT condition.
While I was waiting for this beast to be delivered, I went to YouTube and watched a lot of videos of other people pushing this sub to it's limits. WOW!! I couldn't wait until mine got delivered!
When I finally got it all hooked up, I went back to YouTube and searched "Subwoofer Test". If you wanna see what this sub can do, I recommend you do the same. There are some INSANE subwoofer tests on there that will rattle you house!
