Pros: bass, clarity + soundstage, price, bass, isolation

Cons: Weird design, occasionally bright treble recessed mids

so i got these expecting a muddy, murky mess. boy was i wrong! the bass extends well has HUGE impact, but weirdly, it doesnt overwhelm the mids and highs, unlike so many budget headphones. mids are recessed, no suprise about that. the highs were clear, detailed, and to my suprise they were slightly unforgiving of poor recordings (compressed mp3s etc), making them sound sibilant and bright. Dang! really wasn't expected a $50 headphone to do that lol :D The soundstage was decent, decent width and depth. comfort is pretty good, takes some getting used to. the isolation was great aswell, when i used the sony hyprid tips. however, the design is a bit of an oddity to me (mostly because the things are shaped to keep it in your ear) still at least theres no complaints about the durabilty xD

Conclusion: for the price, these are effing awesome, despite some sonically and design related issues. 9/10.
