    These came in a B&H kit with a Blue Yeti mic. I have been using some Sennheiser HD 203s for the last year or so as my computer speakers at work. I tried these out and they are better then that Senns in every way (exepct maybe weight and large size). They sound better, are more comfy and less fatiguing. I have heard much better sound from OTE cans, but for the price, these are totally worth it. These are very large headphones and they don't fold up for storage or portability. Though they are all plastic, they feel fairly sturdy and well built.

              If you want a headset that gives you as good or better sound than Bose, or Beats without putting you in the poor-house, this one certainly is for you!
              I use it daily, plugged into my netbook as a vehicle to play MP3s.

              Fantastic!

                I'm glad that these headphones were part of the bundle I bought. The sound is rich, deep, well balanced. It comes with the adapter 3.5mm to 1/4 which works great.

                  These headphones are excellent for studio recording. After searching and trying nearly all of B&H's headphones on display, these called out to me the most from all of the rest for their price, sound and design. If you're on a budget, but don't want to sacrifice quality just buy this model. You'll be glad you did.

                                    These headphones do exactly what you would expect them to do. They're good, but I wasn't blown away by them. The best part about these headphones is that they fit all the way around the ears. They don't sit on top of the ears like other headphones.

                                        I use this pair of headphones with my Roland FP-7F, the sound quality is good, but I've tried better headphones that replicate sound better than this one, but overall, a solid pair of headphones that look ok as well. The only gripe that I have is that there isn't a detachable cable. If you want that, then I suggest the Shure SRH-440, which do have them and a carrying case.

                                        I previously owned a Sony Noise Cancellation headphone, this one definitely offers better sound quality that the Sony, and it is a lot cheaper. Would be terrific if it also have some sort of noise canceling function as well.
