I had the following concerns based on the Amazon and the Head-Fi reviews:
1) That the highs would be too high--possibly even sibilant.
2) That the fit would be uncomfortable (too tight; too warm).
3) That the build quality would be poor.
So far, all of those concerns have proven to be unfounded. I'm not a sound-expert, but on a quick listen to a range of music (Bill Evans on the piano, Justice, etc), I found the sound to be well-balanced, enjoyable, and clear. Neither the highs, mids, nor lows were overwhelming. On the second concern, I have a large head, and these fit well, with no pinch. In fact, I wouldn't mind a little tighter fit. I also have large ears, and the cups covered my ears entirely. Finally, the build quality is fine. It's not bullet-proof, but it's solid enough for this price range.
I'll continue to listen, and if they sound much better after about 100 hours if listening time, I'll come back to upgrade the rating.
EDIT: Well, it's two years later (the original review is dated Dec 21, 2012, and it's now Dec 28, 2014). These headphones have continued to perform just as well as when I first bought them. I quickly grew accustomed to the fit, and I still use them every day. They block out enough noise to allow me to disappear into my work, but I'm still able to hear when someone needs to get my attention. I strongly recommend this pair of headphones, especially if you can get them for the $30 or so I paid.
So first of all, these are still $50 headphones, so a few things were compromised, but not too poorly.
The packaging is rather plain, but effective. It has a semi-retro look to it, which I find somewhat appealing even if it is bland. Included with the headphones are two detachable cables (3.5mm), 3ft. and 10ft. respectively. There is also the ubiquitous 1/4" adapter. Everything is gold plated. Right away, I give many extra points to the inclusion of detachable cables on a cheap headphone. I had read of others saying that the cables were flimsy or transmitted static. I have experience no static and the cables seem quite robust to me (thicker than the usb cable on my mouse or keyboard).
The headphones are (IMO) quite unattractive. They are quite obviously cheap plastic when you hold them, and even the ear pads have a decidedly cheap look, even for vinyl. Complaints aside, I can bend and sway the headphones without fear of breaking them, and feel pretty solidly built, and I'm sure they can survive a few drops and dings.
Comfort is hugely important to me, because I wear headphones all day long. These are the MOST comfortable headphones ever, but they are better than other reviewers would have led me to believe. They utilize a wing system like audiotechnica. I have had other cans that I felt like I needed to take off from time to time or reposition due to discomfort. So far this is not an issue with these.Read more ›
I have several years of experience in electronic music production. What I have learned over the years is that you cannot mix on headphones, no matter how good they are or supposed to be. Headphones will never give you a good overall picture of your mix, they will be always misleading when it comes to the overall stereo image and overall balance of the mix. This is physics which cannot be fooled by any marketing trick or belief.
BUT, headphones are very good when creating your own sounds using synthesizers because they can give you a very detailed picture of the particular sound, where it belongs frequency wise and what the problematic parts are. Sound created on synth using headphones should sound similar (in ideal case the same) on your monitors. So headphones are rather a surgeon's analytical tool for pickling up subtle inaccuracies in the mix then universal tool for making good overall mixes.
Taking the above into account what can I say about these headphones?:-)
The bass response is the story for itself. They have an exceptionally good bass response. Yes the bass IS hyped a bit, but it is very detailed and tight If you know what I mean. No blurred picture of the bass, little overloaded (so what? Don't forget you have your monitors for the overall balance!!), yes, but very, very precise.
These speakers do not sound "forward" as other headphones with hyped mids. Mids on these are accurate and not overloaded.
