I've had these for about a month and so far I'm pretty happy with them. When I tried them on at first I noticed the all around comfort when wearing them. I wear glasses so it was important for me to be able to wear the headphones for extended periods of time without any discomfort and these are great in this regard. When it comes to the sound I find that these headphones do a good job with what I need, good bass and volume reach.

I also have to agree with others who have written that these in no way offer any type of major sound isolation, so if you need headphones for use in a greatly noisy environment I suggest you look for something else.

The one issue I did have with them is that they are a bit big for me even on their smallest setting and they slide down to my face when I look down to the floor to pick something up. For the price I paid though ($26) I'm willing to put up with this minor issue.

I got these a couple years ago and they have been reliable, if a bit heavy. The seam has started to break a bit on the headband, but I have definitely gotten plenty of use out of them. I highly recommend these if you want some comfortable cans for use at home. They are not very portable.

The company replaced the jack for free for me when it came off, EXCELLENT customer service!

I use these headphones as studio monitors in my home reording studio. These are THE BEST headphones you can possibly buy for the $35 Amazon is currently selling them for. I have also used them for casual listening on my mp3 player and they work great for that also. The sound is clear and the highs are crisp. If you're looking for bumping head rattling bass, these are not for you, bass is however clear and has good definition.

I researched quite a bit of headphones. My brothers have the higher 30 models, but I bought these before I knew that. I can't tell a large difference in sound quality between these and the $20+ models. I like my cord better, it is a coiled cord, 10ft long uncoiled, but stays about 6 ft long while completely coiled. I play guitar on these, and they do have some noticeable breakup in the mids and lows at HIGH volumes. I just like to push them... If you're reading this wondering if these will work; THEY WILL, go ahead an buy them! 1 yr warranty as well

I got these for my mom, so she could use them with her iPad and Sansa player I got and filled up with her favorite music. However, I did burn them in and listen to them just to see what they sounded like. The cans I will be comparing them to are the famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) ATH-M50s. Now, is that fair? Of course not, but it's what I use myself, like many other "budget Audiophiles". Quick review:

Highs: as to be expected, the highs are more tinny sounding and not as clear. These are much cheaper headphones, so go figure.

Mids: the mids are less recessed than the M50s, which are known to have that issue, however they are not as clear. Again, go figure.

Lows: it's surprising how close these come to the M50s in this department - the bass is there and it is fairly clear

Volume: these headphones would not be suitable for me (aside from the sound quality) simply because they're quiet in comparison to the higher end ATH headphones. However, she doesn't like to listen to music loud so for her, they're perfect. I will note that they aren't as quiet as everyone is making them out to be, and with a small headphone amp you could boost them and make them sound better in the process.

Soundstage: this is where these headphones really shine and why I'm giving them a five star rating - the soundstage is pretty much equal to the M50s. Really, really, really good.

Comfort: just as comfortable as the higher end ones.

Anyways, yeah. You get what you pay for, but looking at competitors, I'd say that by far these are best for the price. These were 24 dollars for me and 30 when not on sale - that makes the competing headphones things like the Sennheiser HD-202s.

bought these 5 years ago and just recently they have started to wear out a bit (meaning sometimes the quality craps out if the cord is in a certain position). Note that I took these everywhere from working riding or skating around and to use at DJ Gigs.
love the quality and the comfort and I will be buying a new pair soon.

For the price and the dynamics involved in monitoring voice overs theses are hard to beat. Very comfortable on your HEAD and pocketbook I find the M20's a true bargain - they won't break the bank or your heart if you drop a pair too many times (don't ask!). Lot's of waaaaay more expensive cans out there but for most voice overs they are over kill. I team these up with my Porta-Booth [[ASIN:B0015TFO24 Porta-booth - Portable Sound Studio with Two Compression Sacs] and VO: 1-A microphone [ASIN:B002SMYUFY VO: 1-A Harlan Hogan Signature Series Voice Over Microphone] on the road.

So the first reason I bought the M20s was for a replacement for my Sennheiser 205s (bought december 2011 for $25). I've never had good luck with headphone quality - the longest headphones lasted me 8 months and yes I've gone through all the name brands except Audio Technica so I thought I'd try the M20s. I have to say, when they came in the mail I had high hopes. They looked well made. Unfortunately, they too have a downfall. When played, the sound is a lot less compared to my old Sennheisers and also the bass is barely noticeable. There is ABSOLUTELY NO SOUND ISOLATION. Also, the headphones were extremely wide and so they constantly fell off my head until I had to press them together hoping they wouldn't break (which of course can't be good for future). These headphones were okay, but I know there is a lot better you can find for $36. They're fine for casual listeners who just care about sound and not bass though - clear and crisp. Just not what I would have wanted. Oh well, I'll just have to deal with these until I can afford new ones...
