Pros: Relatively good sub-bass, improves with use, surprisingly durable

Cons: Veiled and muddy mids and treble, pads get very dirty easily

Audio Quality   For people who like bass, it has a good but not overpowering quantity, but can lack in clarity and quality. However, it has a relatively good sub-bass for headphones within the price range. The upper mids / lower treble is very quiet. The treble is very veiled, which makes it difficult to cut through the bass. The audio is overall very muddy, and so these headphones would not be ideal for classical music, or music where the tone and timbre of the treble is highly important. Burn-in improved the sound quality and bass, but not enough to change those characteristics. I've heard removing the cover to expose the drivers better helps with the veiled sound,...

Pros: Cheap.... Bass is ok

Cons: No Sparkle whatsoever, bass drowns out mids and highs, comfort and build quality

There's not much to say about these. They are cheap Skullcandys. I won these with an Ice-cream promotion. The Build Quality: These headphones kinda feel like a toy. The fake screwholes don't really do much and I don't think they make them look any better.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Not Audiophile Grade, Feels like a Toy

I wanted nice headphones to use my iPod. I got them one day while walking around the mall with my girlfriend. The list price on this is $30, so I thought I was getting a deal by paying $13. They're not bad. They're just marketed at teenagers. The sound is bland, but it will get you through a day. I wouldn't recommend paying $30.00 for this. It's okay if you go on a trip and forget your gear and you decide to purchase a Sansa clip and this to listen to your music for the sake of having entertainment. Try to go somewhere where they are on sale though. Otherwise, just get gummies IEM.
