Fantastic $80. 00 headphones
on December 6, 2014
Fantastic $80.00 headphones...but very lousy $300.00 headphones! I picked a pair of these up on sale and while they do sound okay for what they are, for $300.00, you can get get headphones that are much louder (lower impedance), have much better comfort, better sound isolation and of course better sound overall.
Put it this way, when you start spending $300 plus for a set of headphones, stay away from the big box consumer products. This is when you go to a music store and purchase a set of professional grade headphones. Most people don't even bother trying to compare...they see a set for $300 and figure they MUST be good....until the day comes when they hear an $80 pair of headphones sound just as good or better.
Lastly, as far as comfort goes, I have an average sized head and I find these to be a bit too tight. After an extended period of time, my outer ears start getting sore.
The take away: If you can get these on sale, they're worth snapping up. If you paid full MSRP for these things, take them back to the store and slap the salesman that just tried to screw you.
