Pros: Clean Bass, Nice Build Quality, Reasonable Price, Modular Cable

Cons: High Retail Price, No Accessories, Recessed MIds, Very Dull Highs

My reaction to unboxing this product was, wow no accessories for a 100 dollar retail price. Being already disappointed I didn't expect this headphone to be any better than an awful pair of overpriced headphones but as I used it overtime it started to become better the overall audio quality could have definitely been better the mids sounded so recessed and the odd part of it all is that the bass is quite balanced it didn't have the booming amount of bass i was expecting it was very detailed and quite nice but because the mids were so recessed the entire quality of the sound decreased. the highs were something that i expected to be recessed buying this product knowing that this is meant for a "younger" demographic and it was, but still not as recessed as the mids. now from an average joe's perspective a simple phone or ipod will get these "loud" but these will not sound as good compared to if you head a simple portable amplifier or a soundcard for a computer these are far from audiophile headphones and will not supply the amount of sound quality for 100 USD but the overall design of the headphone is relatively nice the locking mechanism is simple yet functional it uses a simple velcro and a standard clicking adjustable headband. the color is pink and will not come in any other color. sound isolation/cancellation is not great, the cancellation on these are good enough to make high frequencies become more dull but not enough to block out a loud street or bus; but the isolation is not the worst, knowing that most people concerned about isolation usually commute i tested it running off of a galaxy s2 and the results were satisfactory the leakage was a little more than i was expecting out of a closed back headphone but wasn't as bad as an open design, at about 50% volume the leakage became noticeable and somebody sitting next to you or in a seat in front/behind you would hear it so this is not the greatest for people that usually travel or commute. 


Verdict: This is not worth the retail price the sound is not very good and should only be purchased if a good price is to be found
