LEGENDARY SOUND + GREAT FIT
After 60+ years of making legendary loudspeakers, we built upon our bold audio heritage to revolutionize the headphone industry. Since 2007 we have been creating the most innovative headphones on the market. We are the performance and comfort winners. Period.

NOT JUST YOUR AVERAGE HEADPHONE
The new standard in on-ear headphones combines comfort and sound quality into a compact package. Not built to be flashy, Reference On-Ear hides things like hinges and sliding mechanisms in favor of a minimal, clean design. Protecting mechanical components from the outside world also improves reliability so you have a headphone that will last for years to come.

SOUND
A ground-up design focusing on proper representation of music from any genre, Reference On-Ear doesn’t add anything you weren’t meant to hear by the artist. Vocals are clear, highs are crisp, and bass is true and accurate.

COMFORT
Reference On-Ear’s premium ear cushions are soft and deep. This significantly improves comfort and separates music away from outside noise. The earcup provides articulation in every direction, ensuring that pressure is applied evenly across the entire ear. With just the right amount of headband pressure, your ears stay comfortable for hours.

LESS IS MORE
Designed with portability in mind, Reference On-Ear is light on your head and folds up. The ear cups have been shrunken to where the ear cushion is the largest component.

FLAT TANGLE-RESISTANT CABLE
Enhanced, durable cabling for hassle-free storage and transport.

ADVANCED THREE-BUTTON REMOTE + MIC
Offers full control of iPhone, iPod touch and iPod models, while allowing for seamless control of music and phone calls.

ACCESSORIES
Available in black or white finish, each comes with a carrying case, perfect for safe storage and travel.

Great headphones! Worth the $ for sure.

Pros: I'm no hardcore audiophile but these headphones seem like a great buy to me.

They sound pretty decent listening to mp3's and the youtube app from my phone but the bass there is really lacking. I've tried CD's and lossless audio formats and it's there that they really distinguish themselves from cheapy headphones.

I even tried vinyl through a fancy amp and the bass that they pump out when plugged into my amp makes them sound like a completely different headset than when they're connected to my phone.

I really don't think any headphones will sound better if your sources are not lossless formats.

They for sure cancel outside noise pretty well. I think it's just the right amount of foam and pressure on the ears to achieve this.

My three year old really likes them for some reason. He can't keep his hands off of them. A couple days ago after he played with them I noticed that the metal plug part was totally bent. Awful! I was sure they were broken forever since the cord is not detachable. I bent the metal end of the cord back to straight (relatively) and they still work perfect. So maybe they're pretty durable huh?

Cons: Cord does not detach. The packaging uses a curse word for some reason. Kinda' odd huh? Guess that's the age we live in.

Other Thoughts: My three year old really likes them for some reason. He can't keep his hands off of them. A couple days ago after he played with them I noticed that the metal plug part was totally bent. Awful! I was sure they were broken forever since the cord is not detachable. I bent the metal end of the cord back to straight (relatively) and they still work perfect. So maybe they're pretty durable huh?

Nothing wrong strictly defined but uncomfortably tight and unusable for some scenarios

Pros: They seem accurate enough (perfectly OK, not shockingly good) for the price. They look pretty good and seem well put together. Ear cups feel reasonably padded.

Cons: While not appearing to be too small, they do clamp very tightly (perhaps this is true for all on ear headphones - I've had mostly over ear or very light on ears in the past). They are uncomfortable right away despite padding, and the tight fit ensures that I can always hear my pulse rate through the headphones - making them useless for listening to music or for trying to listen to something relaxing or at low volume. Regardless of content, I can't wear them for an hour; with preferred content, I can't use them at all. I think they'd be fine but overkill as cell phone headphones with the built in mic.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend these to others unless they've tried them first or unless they know and like tight fitting over the ear headphones. I paid $50 for these, minus a mail in rebate, making them effectively $30 plus some mild hassle (if I ever send in the rebate); had I tried them, I would not have bought them for $20 straight up. I'll probably end up keeping them as spares given that I'd have to send them back and probably pay re-stocking, as I have used them.

No knock on Newegg or really Klipsch; had I done better research or tried them out, I wouldn't have bought. Perhaps my experience can help another buyer depending on whether they have the same or different concerns.

I bought these on sale for $47.00, worth every penny!

Pros: For the price, they are amazing, awesome clarity, noise cancellation, very good quality and are made well. Box is presented nicely, currently at the time of this review, they're sold out but at $29.99, an absolute steal. BUT, at retail, 200 is too much for these, i would recommend audio-technicas.

Cons: The only issue I have with these are the cable doesn't detach from the headphones. It's really not a big deal, but even at a budget price it wouldn't be a huge deal to have them detachable, I worry about that because I'm one who is clumbsy and I'll stand up without realizing they're on.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend these to anyone who is lacking a nice pair of headphones, or people looking at those awful beats. They're pretty great!

Light, comfortable and great sound

Pros: Great sound across sound spectrum for classical, rock, country western, etc. Really well built, but probably would not survive being run over by a tachonite truck. That being said, I think these are the best headphones I purchased over the last 20 years.

Cons: The headphones are too good. I cannot get them away from my wife! I may have to buy another pair

Other Thoughts: I would recommend these headphones to single people who don't like to share stuff!

Great pair of high quality headphones

Pros: Smooth bass and near perfect replication of middle and treble ranges. They are comfortable and ergonomic and the carrying case is very nice. They have such a perfect dynamic range that I can hear echoes coming from the original recording from the room that they are in.

Cons: Not an overpowering bass.
