My wife and I run a DJ business, and she's become a full party DJ in her own right, so I wanted a little something for her... and saw these. I figured they wouldn't be good enough to use for a real event, but they'd be great to have in her office. While these aren't $200 headphones, they're definitely good enough to DJ a party! They're light, comfortable, and have surprisingly good bass clarity. I got stuck at the office without my pro headphones and grabbed hers (these) to mix a set for a client appreciation day and was able to hear everything I needed to they were comfortable for the whole 3 hours.
They do not collapse or twist, just pivot about 15-degrees vertically, so it takes some adjustment if you're used to that functionality on another set of DJ headphones. The headband-length adjustment is SUPER stable - I wish mine stayed set like these!
Because the cord is disconnectable you could use a different one if you don't like the look of the flat pink one but it works fine. It has a 90-degree connector on the far end (good) but doesn't come with a 1/4" adaptor (bad) so you'll have to pick one up on your own ($2 on a popular auction site).

That's pretty much it. Great headphones. Sound is really good. Probably one of the best sounding headphones without sticking the driver in your ears. The flat cable is amazing. it has never once tangled. Also the locking mechanism on the headphones is pretty sweet. And it's detachable.

That being said these headphones get painful to wear if you have glasses (in their defense i had the same issue with other over-the-head headphones). A little bit too stand-out-ish (being pink and all).

So what if they are pink... the cord doesn't tangle, they fit comfortably on your head, and don't smash your ears. Better than beats in my opinion.

Sound great with deep bass but I can't stand the color pink cord. If they have black color cord for replacement that will be 5 stars.

Got these to replace a cheaper ~$20 pair of headphones I'd been using for awhile. They are definitely an upgrade, pretty good at blocking out surrounding sound and amplify the base in music pretty well. My only issue was with it's high frequency response, it definitely cuts off a lot of higher sounds, I'd noticed it in some Beatles or RHCP music that high guitar parts would just get cut off. They are great for their price point for low to mid-range music but don't work well for high freq.

I'm a video editor & wanted something girly but also up to industry standards. These are pretty cool & I definitely love Sony headphones. The pink looks great & the guys I work with won't steal them lol. I like the cord only on the left (convenient) but it could be a little longer in my opinion. The ear muffs aren't the most comfortable especially when wearing them for extended periods of time. But, overall, they sound great & I get the job done while looking quite stylish!

So these aren't the most amazing headphones out there. They are, however, some of the best-built I've ever seen. I don't foresee these breaking (physically) anytime soon. They have velcro latches on the sides of the phones that keep the length in place, and have great padding to keep them on your head.

While the bass is lacking (I'm a dubstep DJ so I had to crank up the volume in the headphones to enjoy the music), the sound is sharp and otherwise crystal clear. The style is great and the cord won't tangle thanks to the flat design. They're pink -- very, very pink -- and I think it'd do Piiq some good to offer them in a few more colors (I would definitely jump all over a second set of light blue/lime green ones if they offered them), so be ready for the bright colors!

Also, the cord does detach from the side, and it has elastic holding it in, so 1) it won't fall out, and 2) it's less likely to break if you make a mistake and tug the cord too hard.

Theses are great quality headphones for about 50 dollars on amazon!!!! I have had similar skullcandy headphone which might look cool but are of terrible build quality. So far the headphones are in pretty good condition from daily use and dont feel uncomfortable after wearing for several hours a day. One of the main reasons i bought the headphones was for the removable cord and the Velcro adjustable part of the headphones. A few notes about the products, its a shame they didnt let you choose a different cable color or just a different headphone color, im am fine with a partially pink headphone set but it would be nice to some variations.
