These headphones are awesome! I've been looking for some headphones to replace my earbuds that always break within months no matter what type I get. A couple of key things that stand out:
-Looks: I love the retro look in these! Unlike other headphones, they don't have the companies logo plastered everywhere. They also have a wide variety of colors to choose from. They're simple, but awesome imo. True eye candy and make heads turn, a great fashion accessory.
-Comfort: One of the biggest complaints with big over the ear headphones is that usually within half an hour, they feel extremely uncomfortable, almost like a vicegrip on your head! Not with these, they're so light, yet fit snug and almost any head since they're size adjustable as well. I can wear them all day with no problem.
-Sound quality: Well.... you get what you pay for. Its great, no muddy sound, great bass, no static or anything like that. You just can't compare it to high-end super expensive headphones.
-Other: Instead of using wire, they use this neat fabric cord that doesn't tangle like wires do. It also doesn't feel flimsy so its reassuring that it won't rip, break, or short easily. The phone headset feature is also neat :)
Overall, these are awesome headphones, especially for the prize. Definetly underrated compared to the Urbanears Plattan....

An Easter present that she is thrilled with. Cool design and very good audio quality (I'm a semiprofessional musician and have tried them out). Great buy for the price. Too bad they didn't come with a case. They look flimsy in pictures but are solidly constructed.

I have trouble wearing ear buds but like the idea of having a microphone to take phone calls. I primarily use these for wroking out and running. I have a small head and they fit quite well. Never do the slip or fall off. I don't know much when it comes to headphones and music quality, but the music and audiobooks I listen to sound great to me. Also, the microphone for calls works well, even in windy conditions. Very happy with these.

The headphone colors were really cute. My friend loved it and it was really unique around campus when everyone's using beats or iphone headphones.

bought these for work, as i was tired of ear buds. wanted something where people around me could tell i had headphones on, but something that didnt block out all sound around me.

these headphones have excellent audio quality (particularly for the style). the mic is an added bonus. nice extra long fabric covered cable, very high quality and does not transfer sound when it is handled. i also have a very small head and these headphones fit great and are comfortable.

only minus one star because i was slightly disappointed with the ear foam, the color is not as bright as in the photograph (this may be due to this product sitting around on a shelf for a long time as ive had other foam ear pads fade). additionally i know these are going to get dirty after time and i dont think the company sells replacement pads (esp with this model being discontinued).

urbanears, hear me when i say BRING BACK THE TANTO!!! such a wonderful pair of headphones, id buy 4 pair if these were rereleased!

I bought these because I was tired of my earphones. I wanted something that would sit on top of my ears instead of being squished inside them.
I am pretty satisfied with these; I got what I wanted. My head is abnormally big circumferentially so I was worried that they would be too small, but they aren't. They aren't tight they are pretty loose fitting. I guess if you had a very long head it might be too small (?); they aren't adjustable. On the other hand, I have pretty small to normal ears and they fit over my ears well, not too big.
The best thing about these is that they are very lightweight and my ears don't hurt after several hours of them on. If I had to nitpick about one thing, it would be the foam covers on the ear pieces. I assumed they would be better quality, but they're just regular foam like the ones on earbuds; I might have to get replacements if I use these a lot.

I looked forever to find a pair of headphones that weren't bulky and still looked nice. On the pictures these look very chic and different from anything I'd found, so I eagerly bought them. When I got them, however, they looked cheap. If the part that actually goes on your ear didn't stick out so much (due to the pivotal feature for a better fit) they wouldn't look as bad. The foam part that goes around them also isn't big enough to cover the plastic and holes on it, so it makes it look cheaply made. I love the idea of these, but they need work. Sound is okay but definitely not noise canceling - if you turn it up too loud everyone around you can clearly hear your music. Maybe good for at home listening but I don't understand why they call these "on the go" headphones, other than how light they are. Instead of these, I'm considering the Urbanear Plattans.

The headphone I received was dirty and had a sticky residue that turned purple when I tried to clean off.
