These are awesome sounding headphones with great bass and smooth mids and highs. However, went through 3 pairs already as they keep breaking in the plastic area of the headband that houses the wire on the side. Too bad they do not have a sturdier construction build. For now 3 strikes and you're out! Too bad really good sounding DJ headphones for the price.
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.
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.
i really agree with shawn, i've got a pair and i luv them. It's the perfect combination between high sound quality, a strong and useful construction at the right price. What i love is at high outputs it doesn't distort at all when playing deep-bass sounds and with and almost perfect noise isolation let's u get focused in your head. 2 thumbs up! Alex Val.
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.
