The plastic housing and hinges creak with the slightest of head or jaw movements.
This is amplified in the earcups to the point that it completely ruins the auditory experience. If you plan on talking, chewing, yawning, brushing your teeth, etc. with these on, all you'll hear is the creaking. Don't bother wearing them while lying down because the slightest nudge of the cans will cause loud creaking.
If you listen sitting upright and motionless you'll enjoy the neutral audio profile with decent bass and a moderately open sound stage from these lightweight comfortable headphones. But for the way the vast majority of us use our headphones, don't bother with these. It's not worth the frustration and constant KR-I-I-I-CK...KR-I-I-I-CK...KR-I-I-I-CK.
Anyway from here on out I'll skip the pleasantries..Main Points:
-When they're on your head the outside world becomes very quiet and unless your music is cranked up prettttty loud (which unless you have an amp you wont be able to) people wont get the enjoyment of hearing what you're listening to
-I have a big head and these are very comfortable.. - a little pressure, sure..but I like em that way so you can move your head all around and they don't fly off when messing with recording equipment
-After about 30 minutes your ears get pretty warm and a minute break does you well, but after about a minute I feel good to go again.
-The bass isn't extremmmmely loud but is still to the point where it sounds incredible except for things like dub step and really bass heavy rap (listening to 1901 by phoenix right now and it sounds crisp on all levels)
-The speakers can get crazy low notes without bottoming out..not like I need that but whatever
-The long cord is great for the mobility desired during monitoring when recording and they come with a 1/8" female to 1/4" male adapter.
-They fold in on themselves (ear cups fold side by side into the area that the headband is in..i.e. they fold in as much as any headphones could where as some just turn) which is great for storing them.
Idk..guess that's about it. I recommend them unless you want to spend a whole bunch more money..but I suppose you wouldn't be looking at these in the first place then..'ey?
On a scale of 1 to 10:
Sound quality / fidelity: 8 -- Very good quality. Not as good as those $300 headphones I've tested in stores, but for $55 I'm quite happy with these headphones.
Comfort: 7 -- They're quite comfortable and they cup your ears nicely. However, if you have a big head (like I do), expect a subtle squeeze that you will notice but not necessarily irritate you.
Design: 8 -- Pleather, meh; Travel friendly, since they fold in (as many modern headphones do nowadays); the head band isn't all that soft so one must wear it about half an inch above the head.
These are NOT noice cancelling.
