While ago I ordered a bunch of portable headphones. Couple are still on the way but here is what I got so far.
Somic mh438 http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-Somic-MH438-headset-folding-headphone-bass-MP3-music/1163162786.html
I really like these. These have a similar punchy bass that mh463. Overall tone is bit on the warm side. Lacks clarity compared to mh463. Soundstage is nice for a portable but not that amazing considering these are open back. I found that removing the cushion inside the pads improved the clarity. Strangely it also gave me a better and more comfortable fit. Now there is nothing but pleather cover between my ears and the driver. For something as cheap as this build is excellent. Sliders are metal and overall build is sturdy. 3,5mm plug is one of the smallest ive seen outside iems, which is definately a plus. These take some juice to drive so some users might have to keep that in mind. My htc phone could not get these quite as loud as I'd like but it is a very crappy product for this purpose anyway. I would definately recommend these for someone looking for an affordable open portable. Build is better than on my Sennheiser hd228 and sound quality is not behind either. I definately prefer these over portapros too. I'm yet to do a comparative listening vs jvc ha-s400 and fa-004 clones. To me that will determine the true value of these but even at this point it is obvious these are a bargain for someone who needs portables but wan'ts to be aware of their surroundings too.

Build is all plastic and feels as cheap as it is. Sound is veiled but after a while it is not that unpleasant. These are not exactly on ears or over ears either. Getting a good fit is challenging. All in all mediocre headphones that I would not recommend to anyone.

Aviator copies with good build quality. The build is really impressive. Just by holding these I would never guess the price. Getting a good seal is bit tricky but after I manged to position these properly these are fairly comfortable. Highs are ok, nothing special. Midrange clarity is impressive allthough with some gear it can be a bit shouty. There is unnatural emphasis somewhere in the upper midrange. These had a lot of potential but unfortunately these fail in bass department. These seriously lack bass. I gave these a good 50 hour burn in but it did not help. I might try some mods on these later on because I believe these have potential but in stock form I can't recommend these.
Yongle ip-804 http://www.aliexpress.com/item/IP-804-Classic-Style-Hi-Fi-Stereo-On-Ear-Headphone-for-PC-MP3-MP4-iPod-iPhone/1626868476.html
I had high expectations for these. These look identical to headphones Scosche rh656 which are sold around 99$. I though these can't be that bad if these are oem for something sold for that price. The build indeed is nice as it looks in the pictures. The hinge part is all alloy which is not that common for something sold less than 15$. The part where the hinge connects to the cups shows that these are not premium products. Metal had obviously scratched the plastic... Minor fault but annoying. I could not get a comfortable fit with these. Pads are small and the cups don't swivel enough to be properly adjusted to my somewhat pointy ears.
Unfortunately these look alot better than these sound. These sound really really bad. It is like listening music through a metal tube. Not even like listening to a rock concert through a metal tube. It is like listening to your neighbours bad radio, in the next room, through a metal tube. Honestly these are barely an improvement over 50cent samsung earbuds. If these really are scoche oem the rh656 is one big scam. Horrific... I urge everyone to avoid these but I might still use these for a modding project. With bigger pads and maybe with koss kcs75 drivers these could make a classy and good sounding portables.

For the price these too are a well built headphones. Adjusters are metal and everything feels sturdy enough. Best part is the comfort. To me these are around ears. Smallest around ears possible for me. Perfect fit, allmost like custom made specifically for me. Love it! When I pushed play I instantly forgot how good these felt on my head. Sound was horrible. Not just bad, I thought these were broken. After a while I realised I have to push the call button to get normal sound out of these. Well...not just push the button. It has to be pushed all the time. So yeah...these are worthless for apparent reason. Even if these would work properly sound is not anything to get exited about. Better than ip-804 but still below average. I'm really disappointed with the performance of these two yongles. When I removed the pads I got verification that these guys know nothing about headphones. The drivers are angled. I did not see that coming. That's great for such a cheap headphone, right? Well...not really.. THE DRIVERS ARE ANGLED TO THE WRONG DIRECTION!? Seriously? Driver's point away from your ears... That's it, I will never touch another Yongle product again.
