First thing to do when you get these is to pull off the fake leather ear pads and the foam protectors under it. Glued onto the individual speakers are a felt pad. Rip them off as best you can. Then put the included velvet pads back on and slide the foam through the center. Give the headphones some time and once they're broken in you've got fantastic sound quality.
After two and a half months of ownership, my left speaker cut out. After full disassembly, I discovered that the ground wire from the left speaker to the headphone port had broken off inside the speaker. I ended up pulling the wire out completely and soldering in a replacement - this one a thicker gauge and solid core in hopes it wouldn't break so easily. Once done and reassembled, sound quality was back to the best this price can get.
So yeah, you'll need to work on these to get the most out of them. If you just want something that'll work without having to fiddle with it, look elsewhere.
If you are looking for the best sounding, cheap headphones, these are a good choice.
Now listen, these headphones do have a downside, and that is the comfort. The superlux is EXTREMELY shallow and WILL hurt your ears. I had to stuff cotton in-between the drivers and the cushion to give it some thickness.
The other downside is that they eventually make you yearn for more. If these sound so good, I wonder what more expensive headphones sound like.... For example, the bass on these is there but it doesn't vibrate your head or really make you feel like an explosion is going off next to you.
In conclusion, if you are looking for cheap headphones that have an amazing soundstage and something to give you a taste of what the big dog headphones are like these are a good choice. Just be aware you have to modify the headphone cushions or get a thicker pair. The stock pads are just too shallow.
Everything is here in terms of sound. I mainly listen to music on my vlc app on my phone and I've tuned the equalizer to near perfect for these. I'm hearing nuances in songs I've had for 10 years and for the first few songs i listened to when i ripped these out of the box (by the artist Calyx, Drum and Bass) I couldn't stop smiling. Lets start with the highs.
Classical music is devine when played through these cans. I've lost myself in Strauss, Rachmoninoff and Schubert like never before. Every composition I own was absolutely beautiful and came through with such clarity i picked up on instrument sections I only caught a glimpse of before.
The electronic music spectrum through these is intense. Everything from overbearing bass tracks to atmospheric "meditation" music was clear and very clean. If there was a problem with the mastering I picked it up.
The highs can be over bearing if your player is tuned wrong but after tweaking they are clear and lively. Everything from violins, flute, and high pitched synth sounds come in beautifully and happily.
The mids are the clearest, and cleanest I've ever heard from a pair of headphones in this price range. Harps, low background vocals, oboes and the like are lively and aren't lost in the cacophony that is the outside world mixing with your music.
The bass, Holy Mother of Pearl, the bass on these things is magnificent. I tested out some sub bass tracks I have access to and let me tell you these thing rumble. Everything from *proper* dubstep to drum and bass, to dub, Reggae, Ragga. If it's a bass heavy style of music these will leave you smiling and bobbing your head all day long.
The hardware that comes in the box 3 foot and 11 foot i think were the sizes are perfect. One for tooling about the house and the other for going off to class or just walking in the park. The bag that these come with is nice though i don't have much use for it and the plug lock that keeps the wire connected to the headset is pretty sturdy. I've gotten caught on poles chairs and railings and no so much as a speck of tearing or stress is apparent on the wires. If you can get these get them you shan't be upset with the purchase.
Ergonomics: 5/10 - Here's where I had some issues. I'd say I have a pretty normal sized head, but these headphones CLAMP HARD, and if your ears stick out from your head they WILL be sore after 1hr of use. However, I managed to solve this by leaving the headphones stretched around their box for a few days, as well as inserting a long thin piece of cloth into the pads to create more space for my ears. After these modifications, they have become comfortable.
All in all, I give it a 4/5.
