Pros: Very neutral sounding-Almost a mini Sony V6. Better treble than the PX100 & Portapro. Bass more natural than the Portapro. Sturdy construction.
Cons: Thin cord. It would be better if it had velour earpads. The plug is not a right angle one. Isolation is not so good. Headband doesn't fold.
On another forum someone recommended this headphone. Since it was so cheap I thought I would try it. I was so impressed by its neutrality. It reminds me of the Sony V6. It has decent bass, however the bass is in proportion and sounds natural. The midrange and highs also sound natural. Of course it doesn't have all the detail of V6. Imo it is much better sounding than the Portapro and sounds almost as good as the PX100. The bass is better on the PX100, however the HAS160 has better highs. Those who prefer a warm sound signature like on the PX100 would prefer the $34 JVC HA-S650 to this. They may even prefer the HAS650 to the PX100 as I do.
This is a closed supraaural headphone, however the isolation isn't great. It is amazing how well this headphone compares to the PX100 and Portapro, which are around four times the price.
