  • Great deal

    As reviewed by Shawn on 9/24/2010

    I've owned many pairs of headphones and I can never seem to find a good pair that wont blow/distort at high levels, and at a good price, I finally found them. These headphones have really good frequency ranges and can handle a good amount of power without distorting. They can also handle a good amount of bass which is good for the lower frequencies of audio production. I've struggled to find a pair of headphones that will give a snug fit, which results in a "fuller" sound. Well these conform to my head so well that my ears actually start to get warm because of the lack of airflow. All and all... good quality for the price. Fully flexible and very sturdy. Perfect for loud gigs or the studio.

  • Decently mediocre

    As reviewed by Garhett Bambrick on 1/31/2013

    Maybe I'm biased, but as a bass player, the thing I enjoy most is deep, resonating bass. It's not easy to find headphones that fit that bill, but it's entirely possible. The main problem I had with these is that all I heard was a tinny mid-range sound. There was almost no bass, and the treble was essentially non-existent. Someone called these "cans", which I find fitting, considering that this set sounds like your head is in a tin can. Aside from that, this is a nice set of headphones. They seem very sturdy, the cord is nice, and they look cool, too. For a musician looking for a poppy sound with a broad range of mid (as odd as that sounds to me), this is a great buy. For anyone looking for any kind of range or versatility, look elsewhere.

  • Great set of cans.

    I've owned these headphones for over 2 years and they are starting to show wear but for the price you can't beat the sound quality and durability of these headphones. I am not extremely abusive with my headphones but I've dropped them many times and have held their own.
