These would have been a great buy at the full $50 MSRP. For the $15 I actually paid, they are a steal!

They are comfortable to the point that I forget I am wearing them, have a really sweet sound overall (with plenty of clean bass for my tastes, though maybe not for bassheads), and have no noticeable distortion at the volume level that I use. The open design makes it seem like the music is surrounding my head, without the "seashell" effect that closed headphones sometimes have, and the soundstage is fairly large.

If I had paid upwards of $100 and gotten this level of quality, I would have felt that I got my money's worth!

The only negative is that they have me thinking "If these sound THIS good, what must much more expensive headphones sound like?" (As a result, I have ordered some Audio Technicas for $100 that are $250 MSRP. I will be pleasantly surprised if those sound significantly better than these, though!)

good clarity and nice 4m long cable - not sure of the benefits of a detachable cable though. however, its not so great as far as wearing comfort goes - the spongy thingie that cups the ears is not soft enough for long wearing comfort. i was happier with the previous SHP805 by the same company.

The physical attributes by the above reviewer are all on target except for the sound quality. I bought mine very recently and am disappointed with it coz I get too much static noise. I have to admit that bass wise, it has depthness, especially with metal and heavy rock blues, which is basically all I listen to all the time. And listenining to music on a headphone is a completely different listening experience compared to, let me say, even with a home theater. In the big stereo the instruments tend to sound more like their playing over each other, which is more evident with metal and blues rock, and this being the age of mp3's/iPods, I guess I need not tell you the wonders of listening from a headphone. So, yes, I get a good bass sound and good sound clarity as far as separation is concerned except for the static noise which is just so irritating. And even at a lower volume, I get that detuned kind of sound like the speakers are gonna conk out adding more static effect. I don't listen to fuzz rock/stoner/metal so I know it's not from the source, so it's more like from the speakers itself.

Verified Purchase
I needed a good headphone that was not too expensive but had good quality on playback, since I am recording auditions for commercials. This logoitech model fits the bill. I really don't need the mike on the headset since I use a professional mike, but that isn't really a problem. Its not in the way, you know? They are also comfortable on the ears.
