Pretty Decent!

Posted

Pros: Affordable! , Comfortable, Easily Stored, Sufficient Build

Cons: Sound a bit unclear, build is decent but not stellar.

I'm just a junior head-fi'er, but I do love my music.   ~~~Summary for the hasty?~~~ They are decent $50 headphones, but they are barely decent. The only area that they excel in is portability. Everything else is just sufficient for the price you pay. My recommendation? Buy them on sale. I know looks are subjective but they seem pretty stylish. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Build: Sufficient.

Sennheiser chose the cheapest and most lightweight plastic imaginable, in my opinion. When you put them on your head, you feel nothing......

Pros: Light Weight, comfortable, small, great sound

Cons: Finicky positioning, feels fragile

(I have only just bought these headphones, so I will come back after sufficient burn in time and make a statement then as well.)   Pros: First off, these headphones are EXTREMELY light. They don't weigh a thing on your head, don't clamp hard at all, and are just generally very comfortable. They sit well on your head and adjust in several different ways to fit heads of almost any size. I have worn these headphones for HOURS and only barely notice them! The sound these guys produce is also phenomenal, especially the mids and the highs. they are clear and airy, and the pads dull a sufficient amount of outside noise.    Cons: These headphones feel VERY weak and...
