“I got some of these based on their crazy-good reputation. Even for the $6 I paid I feel ripped off. Worst pair I can remember. What in the world is everyone talking about? These are so gaudy looking, and feel cheaply put together. I could overlook those things if they sounded like everyone says. But they don't. I can't remember disliking the sound quality of an IEM this much. These are just...” --SethDove
“ Monoprice MHP-839 the budget performer *Note, this review also applies to the Kicker HP541 which is a rebrand of the same headphone. So I have both reviews with the non-model-specific info simply copy & pasted. Same headphone! A couple of us here on Head-Fi were looking for some budget performers that could compete with higher end headphones that are constantly being...” --MalVeauX
“Very nice sound and good bass response for the modest entry price. They are very sturdy, and the 1 year warranty is a plus. However, the black ear pads are far too hard and unyielding. I replaced them with far softer and more comfortable red ear pads from Monoprice, but the clamping force of these headphones still make them uncomfortable if worn for extended periods. The included cable is very...” --Downforce
“I purchased these a long time ago after reading reviews that these were a good budget option in the earphone category. To save time, i am just going to jump in to the sound quality section.. Bass: A little bass light for my tastes, but i can live with it. I doubt people are going to complain with these at the price they are offered at. It has decent punch to it, but like i said, a...” --zach8278
“I've owned this headset for about 1 year now I purchased it through this twitter account I follow called IGN deals. Got it for $200. I play regularly everyday for 4+ hours. And I see why there are no reviews for this headset considering it is one of the best and thats just what it's known for. It has a switch that gives you 3 different eq settings. The wireless receiver gives you the option for...” --MillzBaby
“ The sound quality is a lot better than they make it seem, the marketing shows it being used with PSPs and phones, but they are capable of handling more than angry birds. I use these for PC gaming and music. The sound on these almost compare to my Sony MDR EX700LPs, but with a better soundstage and less bass extension. I actually prefer these to the A40s, they...” --jimmy895
