Portability: They are quite small and even fold inwards to a very compact shape. Will easily fit in your jacket pocket. The cord is very short and perfect for commuting but it also comes w/extension cord if you need it longer.
Construction: They are extremely light and probably the lightest over-the-head headphones I own. However, this comes with a price with the headphones constructed entirely of plastic and may break if not handled w/care.
Sound: The sound is pretty good for the price. It has good bass but there is distortion in the treble. The sound will also leak.
UPDATE: Upgrading from 3 to 4 stars. These put a smile on my face because they have an airy, natural sound like Grado but with much stronger bass. They are also much lighter and more portable than Grado. I was listening to jazz with these and accidentally passed by a live jazz band and cannot tell the difference. Only downside is because it is open-back, it's hard to listen to music when you're in a noisy place like the train.
The headphones also pinch - there is pressure on the ear canal meaning that they are not comfortable to wear on an extended basis. Also, annoyingly the headphones come with a short cord and then an extension, which I really find inconvenient because extensions fall off during exercise and movement. I am 6 foot tall, and also find the extension to be too long - its more suited for someone who is 6'4" or taller. I'd much prefer a headphone with a cord that is the right length to begin with.
They are much brighter than the Sennheisers and I enjoyed the sound more than the PX-100 II I am currently using - but the three usability issues above mean that these are going back.
My only issue is that the black sponge on the headphones frays and falls off. You get an extra set but I lost mine, and when I wanted the soft fabric replaced it was ten bucks to buy it.

Best headphones under $100. Great sound (excellent bass and volume), stable build (for the minimal design), very lightweight, comfortable and portable enough. Read morePublished on July 20, 2012 by Marco Esquandolas
I expected more after reading some reviews but wasn't that impressed. The cable is too short and the overall build is poor. The sound is decent, nothing great. Read morePublished on August 30, 2011 by ykimchi
Remember when all headphones were just like these? Well, maybe not. These certainly are a throwback to days past. Very light weight. Read morePublished on August 10, 2011 by Ross A. Seymour
