    I just purchased a couple of these to use for monitoring camcorders, and have used one twice. It performed as expected. The camcorder audio was quite loud and clear, without distortion. They are not what I would consider studio quality, but for the price, to just monitor the camcorder audio, they were just fine. The single wire cord is a plus. The cord's extra long nine foot length, which I prefer, can be a plus too, but it might be considered a negative if it gets caught on something. I have used one for nearly two hours at a time, and I did not notice any pain around my ears as another review stated.

    I got these for free with a Blue mic purchase and so I can't complain too much. But I was actually surprised by the sound. It is rich and full and is good for it's price point. The big con of these I would say is the comfort. They get a bit uncomfortable after a bit of wearing and all around just don't have that light feel you get from other headsets in this category. Also they don't completely surround the ears which I don't like. But all in all not too bad a pair of headphones for the price.

              bought these to monitor the mixing of my drum mic set-up. balancing 7 or 8 mics in close proximity requires excellent response from the signals and exclusion of outside "noise"... these do the job very well.

              I tried a whole bunch of studio style headphones in the $ price range, and picked these for the sound and price. I am using them as extra headphones in my studio when I have larger groups of people. The sound is pretty good, and reasonable accurate. They're not my $ AKG's but I like them better than the Audio Technica ATH-M30,Id say they sound as good as the M-40's, maybe not quite as comfortable.I could not find a better sounding headphone at this price, and I tried a bunch.

                I was expecting a low-quality pair of stock headphones because they came in a kit for the Zoom H4n I bought. But I tried them out when I got the H4n and I was surprised that they actually sound really good and are definitely reliable. Good headphones.

                    I expected a way better sound quality for the price of the HPC-A30 headphones. I would return them but I would have to pay shipping costs myself. Over it.

                    It has a good sound and a nice long cord. The only one is my head is a little bit to smal and I can not tighten it so good on the head. It could be go a little bit more together. But now I use it like it is.

                    Used for Voice Over work. These headphones gave good quality sound feedback but were very heavy (despite the claim they only weigh 6.5 oz.) and too big for my head. They expanded a ton, but did not collapse enough to fit comfortably around my head. As comfortable as the ear pads looked, they did not fit well and left me wanting to keep removing them.

                    Muffled sound with poor definition and weak bass. Headset is not too comfortable either, with the surround pads feeling a bit stiff. Anyway, for the price, they are probably OK for non critical listening (i.e. rough sound check).

                    I bought the headphones to use with my CC. They work well but seem to be a little tight or I have a larger head then normal... Also after wearing them for 30 mins or more the start hurting my ears. I do like the extra long 9 ft cord. And the sound is pretty good for a cheaper headset. All a side for the money there not bad.

                    The seal on this unit is very good, I have only one concern, the loudness of the unit itself. Sounds a bit harsh and can fool you into believing the signal is hotter than it actually is; check your meters before backing off the gain, and reduce the headphone amp instead!

                    Great build so far for me otherwise.

                      Comments about Polsen HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones:

                      Does the job with reasonably good quality sound. The long 10'cord is very handy. Comfortable to wear. Ear cups nicely isolate you from ambient room noise. Use while working on computer or exercising on my training bike.
