Pros: Good bass response, simple but robust construction, replaceable cord, 1 year warranty
Cons: Earpads are uncomfortable, clamping force on head is a bit too tight
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 thin and a bit short, so I replaced it with a nice braided V-Moda one for only $12. So a total of $56.55 invested, including shipping costs. At that price, a set of Shure SRH144 or SRH145 'phones for $39, or the Beyerdynamic DTX 350 p for $59 are a better buy, sound better and are likely much more comfortable to wear. Update: As of August 11, price is down to $17.99. Unbeatable price for quality headphones.
