Pros: Foldable, internal amp, soundstage is fantastic, light, easy access to battery. very comfortable
Cons: Bass sounds somewhat unnatural, speakers to small for me (like big ones), bass shaker( don't feel the natural product of speaker)
I got these headphones because I needed headphones other than the JVC 55x because the 55xs leaked a lo,t so i wanted headphones that wouldn't leak as much and these seemed the part. I've owned these for a couple days and I like them just not as much as i thought I would.
The accessories the headphones came with was a cloth bag, extra batteries, and the cord. These aren't "look at me!'" like the JVC 55xs are and handle vocals much better. they look much more plain and regular.
As far as sound goes the 55s more natural sounding bass, more of a thump than a boom sound. the 55s lows and mids were fine but the highs were grainy and weren't as clear. The skullcandy headphones have more of a boom than a thump. Also the Crushers had high clear vocals and clear mids. You also don't get a natural feeling vibration from the headphones. That's the part i don't like about the headphones, but i still am very satisfied with the sound. These also can handle about every genre there is. I listen to metal as well as Metalcore, some Metalstep and Dubstep, and classical and they sound fantastic.
For build quality they are very good. When you hold these in your hands the give a reassuring feeling of "these wont break easily" even though it made of plastic. There are no weak points in the plastic that iv'e found. The jvcs did not give me the same feeling. The vents on the bottom are fake I'm pretty sure. However, for leak control these are very good as a t full volume you can still barely hear them on someone-else's head.
These headphone are the most comfortable ones I've had. The ear-cup pads are very comfortable and made of stitched leatherette material.
Event though the bass is boomy the headphones hit pretty hard and yet have no distortion. My favorite part about the headphones is the internal amplifier and the amount of bass it amplifies especially the fact you can control it with a slider.
In conclusion if you want a pair of headphones as good as beats for cheaper but better these are the way to go in that context. The sound was way better than i expected to be honest and the design is cool and casual not show off like. I've showed these headphones to people with beats and and they all have said " well the they've outdone the beats" and no longer own beats anymore.
It would be cool, however, if they could make an xl version of these with 60-70 mm speaker with a 55 mm secondary speaker. basically the same with bigger components and a bigger ear-cup. That'd be bad***
