Sounds freaking amazing! But they leak a good bit.Posted by Slothman from Delaware on 2012-03-24

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Base is strong, but sounds very well balanced; pretty comfy; removable cords.
Cons: Music leaks; doesn't cancel out sound well; and not that powerful.
Just a little back story. The TL;DR will be afterwards.
These are my first "serious" headphones (I know these aren't suppose to be amazing headphones, but to me, they sound AMAZING!)
I'm an avid music listener through school, and on the bus, and have been using ear buds for years (mostly the $10 Skullcadys, which in my opinion are pretty damn good, but switched to the Sennheiser CX200's), and for some reason just felt that I should get some headphones.
Now I at least wanted to spend $50 because I wanted quality, but didn't want to spend too much. I was recommended this site from Gamespot.com, and decided to look around based off my price range, and by best reviews, and these had a very a good review from this site, and all 5 stars from 3 users, not to mention being at my kind of price, so I decided to order them.
Now I was not sure how well these were going to be because I could only base my experience off ear buds, but I did expect these to at least sound as good as my CX 200's, and cancel out sound better. Now again, these sound AMAZING based off my experience, so I can't compare these to any other headphones (I might go back and try out the stupid Beats to see how they compare), but they sound better than my ear buds, and they seem to cancel out sound a bit better. I also love the detachable cord so I don't need to wrap the cord around the headphones, but I'm stuck between a cord that's a bit too short, and a bit too long for me...
Now the main reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of how much these things leak the music (which is strange because no one seemed to mention it, unless they're suppose to?), and I don't want to be the guy that disrupts the people around me. I have the volume up loud (which has to be like 70%-80% volume) enough to where the music sounds perfect, and can barely hear my surroundings, but when I recorded myself having them on, they sounded like they were partially projecting the sound out of the headphones (which I'm thinking the sections of tiny holes on the outside of the phones are doing?). But if you don't care about people hearing your music, then these are definitely right for the price! Sadly for me, these will have to stick to home-use...
Sound- The music is very clear. You can hear every instrument, every detail, and the base is pretty strong (but not as profound as the Beats phones)
Comfort- I haven't had them on for hours, but having them on for about 30min-hour, they never got uncomfortable, but like other over-ear phones, your ears will get hot.
Look & Feel- To me, they look very nice/professional.
Durability- I don't plan on dropping or throwing these things around, but they seem like they would be able to handle it.
Bottom Line- If you have a reasonable budget, love music, and don't care about other people around you hearing it, then these are PERFECT for you! I'm happy to have started out so strong. This may be the beginning my headphone "career" lol.
