From the manufacturer
Life is too short for headphones that don't sound great! Monoprice believes that the whole point of listening to music is to hear it as the artist intended. Their engineers and audio experts have spent countless hours listening to and comparing various headphones until they were satisfied they had found models that fit their demanding standards.
At only 4.5 ounces, you'll hardly notice you're wearing them at all. Great for a full day of work, long flights, or extended gaming session, you'll experience less fatigue wearing these awesome sounding headphones.
Featuring an in-line controller with a microphone and play/pause controls, you can also use these headphones answer/terminate calls on your Apple or Android smartphone.
At a price that is less than what you'd pay in tax for big name brand headphones, you can't afford to not try these lightweight headphones!

I somehow managed to get them for $18 here, which is only $3 more than what Monoprice charges on their site. Similar to others here, I liked what CNET had to say about them and the price was definitely right. Also my old Klipsch Image S4 earbuds were literally electrocuting my ears any time I moved, so yeah. Those earbuds, side note, are what I had to compare these against, but they were also CNET-recommended years ago for whatever that's worth.
First of all, and because people have complained about build quality, they're only $15. At that price point, most people would be okay with (nay, *expect*) a cheaply made product, and would probably enjoy terrible sound quality as well. But these actually sound *good*. So I think we can, at the very least, marginalize that aspect of these headphones. Better construction would mean a higher price, and that would take away the key advantage of these headphones: the value. In terms of sound-reproduction they definitely impressed me. I have a decent HiFi setup at home, the components of which I've also reviewed on Amazon (if anyone's interested); these 'phones obviously weren't able to create as satisfying of a performance as my stereo, but they actually didn't do anything wrong by comparison. Going from top to bottom, the highs are nicely detailed without being harsh or fatiguing. Nothing "crunchy" or brash like most cheap (and even some mid-tier) earbuds have. Mids are decent and don't draw attention to themselves. I would have preferred a little more warmth/richness, but that's technically a coloration and I wouldn't consider its absence an objectively bad thing. Lows are surprisingly well done compared to what I was used to with the Klipsch earbuds. The bass on those was understandably weak, given that they're so small and inexpensive. Which is why the Monoprice headphones pleasantly surprised me by being plenty noticeable and low. It's not sloppy and it's not excessive; it feels well weighted in terms of its place in the sound profile. Overall, the sound quality was satisfying, non-fatiguing, and definitely good for the price. I would give it 5 stars for value any day, and probably 4 for sound quality altogether. The only issue I had was a left-right imbalance where vocals would seem to be centered closer to one ear than the other. Maybe it's because I wear glasses (which also makes listening for more than 30 minutes painful - how do people do it??) or maybe it's the nature of "on-ear" 'phones and the lack of a legitimate seal. Regardless, it was noticeable enough be a little annoying at times. I feel that the discomfort related to my glasses (however irritating) is a personal problem, so it didn't factor into my rating. All things considered, these are an insanely good deal and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who has reasonable expectations for build quality, a desire for better-than-average sound, and a tight budget.
EDIT 03/12/2016: The inline mic is very annoying if you wear shirts with collars.
When I switch the headphones on, even without audio playing, the ever-present hum of the air conditioning disappears. With audio, usually mynoise.net, my coworker disappears, too...
Cons: Non-Removable cable, Earcups' padding isn't as soft as I expected.
These headphones may be pretty generic, but let me tell you. These are awesome for the price! I got these for 15$ and I couldn't be happier. Packaging is simple. The earcups twist outwards, which is good for portability. What I did notice is that these headphones sound moderate out-of-the-box. But after some time, (for me it was 1 week), they sounded very good. The bass is pretty good, it will "bump" with the beat. The mids are good, and the highs are very good. Some high pitch notes can be loud though, but nothing serious. The surround is excellent for on-ear headphones. The mic is pretty decent. It provides a clear sound and has one button to pause/play music and answer calls. The cord length is not long but not short, it's just right (wouldn't recommend for studio purposes).
Since these are on-ear headphones, your ears will get warm after some time wearing these and they will begin to hurt temporarily. For me, 30 mins and my ears will start aching from the earcups. But after 10 minutes, your ears will be good to go again. Headband is soft but should be more firm but otherwise, good.
I like this product and I would recommend this to someone who wants good sound for a small amount of cash.
