These phones sound pretty good but do not have a strong base presence. Also, they do not fold so they occupy more space than necessary. Lastly, my pair always seems to drop the right phone cushion from the ear piece when I pick them up for use. It’s easy to re-attach but is annoying and shouldn't happen.
What I really love about these headphones is that the sound is as if you were right there, live, sitting next to the music. The bass is tight, the highs are are right on and the mid is clear. No muddiness. No over powering in any level...beautifully balanced. I am letting the fact that they sound so incredible be the judge for 5 stars...I am still getting used to them sitting on my ears. The angle that they circle your ear at is a bit uncomfortable because the bottom of the cup is angled in.

Great sound and sound separation from my preamp, however not the most comfortable set due the to the limited adjustability of the headset they are over the ear and have very limited pivot angle, you really start to feel the pressure after 45 mins or so.
They were all that the review said ....great set of headphones
this stereo headphones is great i ever found. you cannot here anything other than the bass and the music when u put them on. they are heavy thought which is the to be noted. you would love it if it is home use but you cant use this out door. i would recommend it for sure
It's a good one. I love it
Great deal for the price.2/29/2012
They provide good sound dynamics and are comfortable to wear. The only thing I would like is the ability to fold them up.
