    "these are really goood headphones at this price point"
    Pros - very clear sound,good details, punchy bass
    Cons - can't use it for long time because of closed and tight ear cups
    i am these hd 203 from past one and a half year, first time when i used it with my samsung phone it was just ok like because the headphones were new and were not burned yet. so it was like ok sound with good base but after 3 months when i used it with philips music player i was completly  surprised and loved it. and then i tried it on different music players such as sony , apple ipod it sound great there, it lacks lil soundstage but it have clear details. with good mids and lows and with the punchy base. i would recommend it definatly at this price only con i faced it in is its tangled wire and its lil tight ear cups which are uncomfortacle for long time usage.

    "Great Value"
    Pros - Cheap, Great Bass
    Cons - Highs suffer and are quite recessed, build quality
    Had a friend who had these come over to test them out, compare them to my ATH M50's. Plugged into a Fiio E7, these headphones were nothing short of great for their price range. From what I can remember, they sound better than my old JVC HAM750's. The bass response on these is almost as good as the ATH M50's. Not as crisp, but the thumping sub-bass is definitely there. On high/mid bass it loses quite a bit of sound but it's generally very good. It would be great for rap, where the thumpy bass defines the song, as opposed to say dubstep where mid bass lines are crucial. 

    The mids are still there but are not as pronounced. Nothing really to say. 

    The highs are where this headphone definitely suffers. The highs are very recessed and almost unclear. They seem so distant and in the background compared to everything else. 


    The build quality...they are apparently solid but look kinda cheap. The pads and the headband are all plastic. So that's that. 

    But overall, it's a great buy. SQ for this low of a price is a steal. They honestly compare favorably to beats.

    "Good Buy"
    Pros - really durable, sounds good for price
    Cons - really uncomfortable
    Got these over two years back at best buy. Wanted to try a sennheiser headphone since i heard so many great things. So i decided to get these for $50. When i got home and tried these on i was disappointed. Sounded tinny to me. But with some burn in i liked them. Now when i listen to them 2 years later i don't know what i was talking about it being tinny since these have quite a lot of bass. These have a V shaped sound sig to my ears. The bass is a bit bloated and muddy and treble a bit sibilant but for $50 its not bad. You can still hear the mids and these actually have good detail. No soundstage though and the sound is very cramped and kind of jumbled together sounding. Nonetheless a great sounding can for the price.
     
    Now these are extremely uncomfortable! Earcups are really small and your ears just kind of cram in there against the drivers. Cant wear these for more than 20 minutes without it hurting. 
     
    On a positive not these are really durable! These took much abuse over the last 2 years from children using them roughly. These have stood up to all that and are just like when i bought them!
