This is a quick impression from a basshead's point of view. I'm writing this because there's almost ZERO info on these headphones, and because I don't speak audiophile, this will be a quick. Like I said, I'm a proud basshead but I do occasionally listen to music with little bass. I knew when I got these they're gonna be bass lite and indeed they are. They do a decent job on country and indie rock, but using them for dubstep, EDM or RAP is something no one should do. I originally bought these for gaming and movies on my tablets, and they sounded great when using it for that purpose. Value - The value got 5 stars because I got these for $29 shipped Audio Quality - I gave the audio quality 4 stars because they do sound pretty good with non bassy music and they are great for movies and gaming. Design - Design got 3.5 star because they look silly when on your head. I wouldn't wear these in public. The build quality is pretty good though. Comfort - Easily one of most comfortable headphones I've owned. I had zero problems with the wings and my head is pretty small..... I think? Overall - Solid 4 stars for non basshead. Bass junkie should stay away. The reason why I bought the AD300 instead of the the more popular AD700 is because (1) it was damn cheap $29.99 shipped (2) was suppose to have a little more bass than the AD700 and (3) it's smaller and didn't have that fugly purple grill.
