I am truely impressed with these headphones. They sound good. Bass is pretty deep. They are light in weight and feel very nice on the ears. They are a NO BRAINER for someone for a decent pair of phones at a really affordable price. The white color is also nice - stylish. The don't look cheap. The cord is long enough. 1 thing that is NOT a problem for me (but I can see where it could be for others) is that the jack that plugs into device is L' shaped. If your mp3 player has a case then u may have to remove. So happy with these they I am going to buy 3 more pair as early xmas gifts; the kids will love em :) Hope this helps.

I have a dozen headphones. I am still searching for the most comfortable and best, and I have not yet found it. THIS set of headphones is better than "average" in comfort and sound quality. I listen to music nearly all the time, and need to be able to isolate myself in comfort... and this does an adequate enough job. Listening while working on the computer (reading and writing), and late at night, when I listen to either music or news on the radio... I am still trying this out, and so far, so good. My search for the perfect pair of headphones shall continue, but, I think I will be using this set on the average a bit more than the other 10 pairs I have...

      These are a steal, although the white pair I got were not quite as comfortable as the old black pair I had. In any case, I believe the model is being discontinued.

          I use it for music and games. Basically, the device is reasonable. It's good. The sound isn't too much loud and it is hot for the ears when the environment is also hot, what is kind of uncomfortable. But it does the job. Good for the low price.

          The sound quality of these headphones is exceptional for the price, and I've owned two pair. Unfortunately, that's because neither lasted longer than a year a heavy use. Both times the jack failed and I lost a channel. I've used them for listening to music while being active, as well as monitoring audio in a studio and field setting. The plug just doesn't hold up.

            These headphones are simple, convenient and portable. The sound quality is ok, however it has over all a nice crisp sound. Though the tip is a little junky. It can bend instantly and the sound will not work. I do recommend.

                I rate these 5 stars for build quality and price, but 0 stars for sound quality. That averages 2.5 stars, which I've rounded down to 2.These phones are not musical. They reproduce sound, but it's nothing like real music. Any kind of music. Their frequency response graph must look like a roller coaster. They might be useful for audiobooks - don't know, didn't try it.I need something basic for at the gym, not premium phones, and I thought for $[$]how could I go wrong. Wrong.B&H has been excellent, as usual. I've sent them back, no questions asked.

                        I purchased these to use on trips and with my iPhone. The sound quality is amazing in spite of the low price. They are light weight and don't completely block ambient sound, but I am totally satisfied with the great sound.

                          Casual listening. Lives up to the Sony MDR line. For an inexpensive headphone, I am pleased with this product.

                          This piece of equipment was purchased for use with an HDV Camcorder that was sent to a young journalism student in Kenya. The price is right and if taken care of properly should stand-up to the location.
