“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
“So I am fairly new to the audio world. The Monoprice 8323 was my second purchase on starting to get into headphones (after Superlux HD681 EVOs). I have had these headphones for about 6 months now. First the bad things about them. The cables and pads are the let downs in terms of build quality. There are two cables. The first is really long and cheap feeling. It also has pretty bad...” --93EXCivic
“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
“If the A50s gave you the option to customize the presets, I imagine that they would be great for FPS gaming. However, they do not and even the preset with the least low end has too much to hear any of the subtler sounds (e.g., footsteps). I use them with a PS4 and have tried every possible combination of settings to no avail. There are far less expensive options on the market that offer more...” --Hoopdy
“ 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
“Ok first I need to say that I'm not an audiophile, and I use this site mostly for help than giving advise whit that told I will continue I've owned this headset for more than a year and they are really good, if you're looking for a headset that can be used with the xbox, xbox one , ps3, ps4, and not only in your pc and ipod, mp3 player and so but it have an average sound ,...” --MaxiMarciano
