Design: I got it because of its simple design and reminded me of the headphones you used to get w/walkmans.

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.

I purchased these based on some glowing reviews but was very disappointed. I have used the Sennheiser PX-100 and 200 (both the I and II versions). The build quality is dramatically inferior to the Sennheisers, esp the II versions. The headphones are flimsy feeling - even the ear cushions are very thin and were falling off and pilling after just a few hours of use.

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.

For the size and weight, these headphones provide great sound including bass. They are a little pricey for what you get and the ear pieces are just lightly covered with very thin foam making them uncomfortable to wear for any length of time. Also the non-adjustable tension of the headband also leads to some discomfort.

I bought these headphones to replace my Sennheiser HD555 because I wanted something a little bit more portable. These little guys are perfect because you can just fold them up and throw them in your bag when not in use. I personally like to leave them on my neck because they are just so light. The sound quality is very nice and very comparable to my previous HD555s. The trebles and bass is fantastic for its size. I listen to a good variety of music from mainstream hip hop to 60-70s classics. They music sounds very lively and rich. It makes listening to music a very fun experience! These are open headphones so the sound does leak out a little bit if you like pump up your music. But at "average" listening levels, you shouldn't worry about it too much. Personally I like open headphones better because when out and about, I don't like to be closed off from the world. Build quality is fairly good like most products from JAYS. I accidentally stepped on my v-Jays and amazingly they survived. One of the ear pieces snapped off but you can just snap them back on. The plastic seems very durable and crack resistant which is good. Overall, these headphones are amazing and perfect for on the go music listening. Highly recommended!

These have really great sound to them. Strong base.

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.

These are a really good and portable headphone. They are ultra light and are comfortable to wear. The sound they produce is mostly enjoyable and very clear with a firm and authoritative bass note. The bass is tight and does not intrude into the other frequencies or "muddy" up the sound. One small issue I had with them is that they are a pretty "bright" sounding set in the upper frequency range. At times, and with some music, they start to scream a little bit, and need to be turned down to prevent them from being "ear piercing". Understand that they don't distort, but they are just a brighter sounding set along the same vein as the Grados I've heard (ie. SR80i). Personally, I like a little bit more laid back highs. I'm more sensitive than some to brightness, and they were a bit fatiguing for me after listening for awhile at a moderate volume. That being said, they are highly rated due to their clarity, open design, and ultra light but durable build quality. Highly recommended if a brighter sound signature is fine with you, and your looking for something to take with you everywhere.
