I bought these headphones just looking for a cheap pair that I can take anywhere without worrying about damaging them. When I first took them out of the box you can smell the leather used for the headband. The design is overall very plain, and consists of a lot of plastic. The padding on the ear cuffs are thin, but don't irritate your ears after long use. The oval shape fit your ears allowing for longer use without pain. Cord length is very long, allowing for studio use, but when you want to use them to travel your going need a twist tie to wrap up long cord. In the box it comes with a 6.3mm jack converter for kits. Overall the sound is very good, with really good treble sound. The flaws are in its use of bass which this headphone lacks the power needed to produce loud and clear bass. These are the best headphones you could buy for the price, if your just starting out or just want something to use just to listen to music these headphones are for you.

I was looking for a cheap set of headphones for everyday use. This is not the set to get. The end of the cord is very weak and it broke in one week of me using it. The overall model is weak feeling and is't strong at all, it isn't durable at all. The sound quality of them are great, but its durablitly is terrible. I couldn't go take them to go running or anything that might make them shake or move a lot.

    Got it for less than half of the normal price. Sounds and looks good but I wouldn't pay full price for them as the construction seems to be really cheap and i don't know how long it will last in everyday use.

        Just 3 stars because there is nothing special about these headphones. I got them on SDOTD. So the price was great. Got them so my son could use his amp with out bothering anyone.

          I'm disappointed that the sound quality is this poor. I can't imagine paying the list price for these and, even at less than half list, still think it's too much. I've had much better sound reproduction from cheaper headphones and will likely give these away.

          Sad, they look like they are. Kinda cheap and a little weird. Fair price on stupid deal. I had an old pair of T-10s that were inexpensive and classy. I had hoped for more from these albeit they were fair priced.

              I bought this pair of headphones during a Stupid Deal of the Day for half price, with the intention of leaving them at the monitor mixing console in my church. I plugged 'em in and they worked fine, and had a decent sound for the money I paid. A couple weeks later one ear speaker had failed. Threw 'em away.

              Stupid Deal of the Day, indeed.

              Comments about Fostex TX-1 Headphones:

              The headphones have exceptional sound, good bass. I use the headphones when I play the guitar. They are the perfect style, fit and weight when playing. Great use for guitar players that plug into an iRig. They come with a convenient duo plug for both an amp or an iPhone. The twp plugs screw into one another for durability, so the connection is not done cheaply. They look and feel expensive, almost like you feel bad for getting them under $50.00. There is no volume control, or any knobs on the headphones, but it really is no issue. I really like that the headphone cord because it is long enough (approx. 10 - 15 feet) to move around and not be tied to a small diameter space when playing your guitar. Excellent buy. I would most definitely purchase these again. The quality and craftsmanship is superb. I would buy the Silver and Black because they look and feel the most expensive.

                Mine lasted about 50 days, just outside of the return window at GC. Fostex only pays return shipping back to the customer, so instead of wasting my money on shipping to them I am cutting my losses. Look elsewhere and don't buy this junk.

                  Needed a good set of general PC audio head phones. When traveling I haul a light weight desktop, flat screen and the works associated in a large roller bag portable office. Needed a full cover ear phone which would fit in my plastic accessory box spacer 3with power wires, video cable etc. Grand find a a great sale price. Work much better than I expected.
