For a cheap set of Sennheiser headphones, my pair's head-rest is quite comfy and squishy. The pair has great sound quality and fits my head. If you have a large head, I'd advise against buying it; my friends who tried it had problems keeping it on as comfortably (and their heads were "Large" in hat sizes). The earpieces were just flat on the in-ear section... and it took a while getting used to. I wish I had bought a larger set with the concave -C- shape so that my ears could be in there. It's not a deal breaker, but it's definitely a quality I wish I had known beforehand: I bought it without being able to try it on and I haven't tried pairs with a design similar to this.

They advertised it as a basic noise-canceling earphone: in the Technical Details, it says that this pair "blocks outside noise". HAH. It does as much as my hands do covering my ears. I still hear background no unless I turn the volume up to 25-35% (depending on the song) of my laptop's volume range settings.

I even did a test: I used "Mack the Knife" by Kurt Weill. It's a mix between Contemporary, Broadway, etc.

Results: With my JBuds in-ear earpieces, I only need to turn the volume to 35% to completely block out my friend's talking. With these headphones, it takes ~65% to drown her voice out most of the time. Definitely doesn't "block out outside sound" at all.. unless you plan to deafen yourself.

If you listen to non-Classical, non-soft tunes, or the like, I'd say consider it. I'm not saying it's bad quality. It just wasn't what I wanted nor was it what I expected to receive when I bought it... but if whomever reads this, still likes the headphones and wants it, go for it.

I think they are really good, I have 2 prs. don't understand WHY they have the 2 adjustments so close on the right side, it does become a pain.
I also wish they weren't so large and bulky. They can get hot sometimes esp. when it is hot weather.
