Quality

Quality:
"It seems absurd that the difference in quality in the same product can be so extreme."
_
"The first thing that I notice was that the sound quality was not as good as those others."
_
"Sound quality might be matched in cheaper headphones, but then you'd be missing out on all of the other design features that make this unique."
_
"The section of cord that comes out of the headphone finally called it quits today (I was only getting sound on one side, no matter how I adjusted the cord).So cord issues aside, I found the sound quality to be pretty nice."
_
"Great sound quality and super durable!"
_
"The Phillips o'neill stretch headband headset was a wonderful high quality headset and we've purchased them in our family for years."
_

Sound

Sound:
"The sound was great, but not comfortable at all."
_
"The first thing that I notice was that the sound quality was not as good as those others."
_
"The sound is OK, way better than any earbuds of course (I hate earbuds), decent (for cheap consumer headphones, relatively speaking of course)."
_
"When the smaller cord is installed, the sound is truly terrible, so I advise tossing it aside as soon as you unpack the headphones."
_
"However, with several people in my house owning headsets, and comparing them to these, I don't think these have the best sound for the price."
_
"Some reviewers on the web have complained about a kind of popping sound (at least one reviewer refers to it as a crackling sound) that the plastic Stretch headband sometimes makes when the wearer is in motion, and I too have noticed that."
_
"I listen to all types of music and these do very well for a wide variety of sounds."
_
"They sound great and look nice, they are pretty durable, the ear sponges peeled and then fell after two years but I glued them."
_
"It had a great sound as well as a good bass."
_
"If you want something that sounds nice, then this could definitely be something for you."
_
"The section of cord that comes out of the headphone finally called it quits today (I was only getting sound on one side, no matter how I adjusted the cord).So cord issues aside, I found the sound quality to be pretty nice."
