Exact same as the ones on my fractal design case
Pros: Quiet, blacked out, matches the existing fans in my fractal design case.
Cons: Cames with 4 short screws and no long ones. I could have managed with just the short ones that were provided, so no eggs off for that.
Overall Review: Just bought this to match the other one that came with my fractal design case. If that's what you're going for, then it's a perfect fan (5 eggs). If not, then there are better fans out there for not much more and I would give it 3-4.
Sounds good but feels fragile
Pros: Sound quality is good, comfortable to wear even though I have large ears, was on sale so inexpensive. Nice that you can fold them up.
Cons: The plastic crescent attaching the band to the speakers feels fragile. The pictures don't show where the cable meets the jack well, it just has a small bit of rubber around it to protect it. It's the same as the protection given to the connection to the speakers that you can see in the photos. That's fine for there, but I expect the cable going into the jack to have a bit more protection. Not sure how long these will last given those two parts in particular.
Overall Review: Bass is fine, nothing amazing though. I would NEVER pay the 70 or 80 msrp for these. That's an absurd price. Under 15? Sure as long as they last a decent while, which I'm not sure they will. If I'm wrong about my first impressions about the construction quality, I'll come back and bump it up a couple of eggs, but first impressions... unless you're going to handle these with kids gloves find another pair.
Horrible sound quality, louder in the right ear
Pros: Feels durable.
Cons: I'm not an audiophile by any means, but even I can tell that these have very poor sound quality. The right speaker is noticeably louder than the left one. If I wanted to use these I would have to adjust the r/l balance every time. My cheap JVC flats sound far better than these. It's also a bit tight on my head, although I suspect that would loosen up over time.
Overall Review: Highly disappointed given all of the positive reviews these have gotten. Not sure if I just got a dud, but I wouldn't recommend getting these
Inexpensive and works
Pros: Inexpensive, works fine for light use.
Cons: None considering what I paid for it and my intended use.
Overall Review: Got this on sale, it's better than the ones at my local stores and was less expensive to boot. If you're looking for something serious though (like a strip for a computer) I would recommend something a bit beefier like a Belkin.
Pros: They were on sale at a good price. Only had 1 coaster out of the 70 or so I've used (which I'm almost certain was the fault of my burner and not the disk itself ). That gave me the opportunity to test the construction though ; ) Tried to see if I could cut into it with a very sharp knife, sliced it several times, it scratched (shocker), but held up otherwise, no visible damage to the data layer. It took a pair of pliers and a lot of twisting to cause the disk to crack then more effort to get it to separate the plastic even with a crack in it. Good stuff.
Overall Review: After seeing how well the one bad burn I had held up I bought another pack. For how well they held up they were a steal at the sale price.
