_
"Great sound and bass for the DJ on a tight budget."
_

_
"On budget but sounds amazing!"
_
"Overall, these are great budget headphones, and with their great sound you can expect to be happy with them for as long as they last."

"com Articles What-are-circumaural-headphonesConclusion:This can be a very good, inexpensive headphone with a couple of tweaks and should be on the list for anyone on a budget looking for good bang-for-the-buck."

Cable

Cable:
"Tuned flat for critical listening, these can be used for everyday use but it has a long cable so I really don't recommend using it for everyday use."
_
"but this headphone has a very delicate cord connection and constructionI have yanked my Senhieser's millions of times and the cord never broke, so be careful with the cord on this headphoneit is not the best, but the sound is superior."
_
"(no I do not work for Tascam) the first pair I bought the cord got stuck and was yanked and broke very easily.so I ordered another pair, because the sound is amazing, I just need to be more careful next time!"
_
"And the cord is a little scary thin; I've already added additional strain relief on mine with a bit of Sugru."
_
"5) The cord seems thin and vulnerable to damage."
_
"The short cable is super thin & flimsy."
_
"Sound quality is good but that cable makes it extremely difficult to use being that long with no way of retracing on its own..I also should have went with the blk...whites getting dirty pretty fast.."
_
"but this headphone has a very delicate cord connection and constructionI have yanked my Senhieser's millions of times and the cord never broke, so be careful with the cord on this headphoneit is not the best, but the sound is superior."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"However, the worst thing is that to me.... it's not that comfortable."
_
"My only complaint here is the comfort."
_
"They are not the most comfortable, nor the best sounding, but value for money they rock."
_

Fit

Fit:
"They have round ear cups, so, not as comfortable as an oblong shape but fits me well enough."
_
"The worst part is the fit."
_
"The only problem is they will not fit small heads."
_
"The EQ was not great, too bass, but the fit was nice."
_
"So, if you feel like your head is on the smaller side or you've had fit issues before, I'd look elsewhere because quality at a cheap price doesn't do you much good if you can't fit them on your head to hear it."
_
"I've been through countless sets of earbuds that didn't fit well, and a set of noise cancelling headphones that unfortunately bit the dust and I couldn't afford to replace."
_
"They have good sound and are well made but have a very high crown and will not fit my head."
_
"Nevertheless they do sound decent especially for its price, and it fits great on my relatively small head of 22 in circumference."
_
"I suppose those with huge heads might well like them for the fit, but I do not have a huge head--another mark against them."
_
"Fit but do not envelope the ears for best found"
_
"If your head is small you'll need to wrap something around the headband to get a good fit."

_

_

_

Listening:
"A bit uncomfortable when listening for more than 4 hours, but amazing sound and durability, especially for the price."

_
"Listening to music is a pleasure wearing them all day."
_
"I would not recommend these to someone who has even average hearing, and enjoys music."

_
"I LOVE MUSIC AND HAVE OVER 10 DEVICES TO PROVE IT."
_
"It plays well sometimes and then sometimes it will only play music through one ear"

Noise

Noise:
"When I put these on, I could immediately detect the level of ambient outside noise decrease significantly- not totally but pretty damn significantly."
_
"I've been through countless sets of earbuds that didn't fit well, and a set of noise cancelling headphones that unfortunately bit the dust and I couldn't afford to replace."
_
"Granted, this is partially the fault of the recorder for not rejecting headphones noise in the circuitry, but it's a huge minus nonetheless."
_
"This isn't a big deal again but they don't block noise as much as the Sony5: they are not as comfortable with glasses as the Sonywith all of that, the sound quality is actually pretty great and if you don't wear glasses, they're very comfortable."
_
"I would note, however, that they do not do a great job of reducing environmental noise - though they do a better job than most cans - and they aren't as padded as some might like."
_
"The block out external noises well enough and give good highs and lows."
_
"Comfortable and they really block out ambient noise when using with recording equipment in a noisy environment."
_
"They produce good sound and block the external noises really well."
_
"They have good sound and help block outside noises."
_
"They're comfortable, the cord is longer than my AKG's, I like the fact that the ear piece swivels like DJ headphones, they sound good, no real over bearing sound either which way on the HZ, whether lows or highs, great for recording, can hardly hear noise from the outside."

Plastic

Plastic:
"They also have a plastic smell that is unpleasant."
_
"It's molded hidden in the black plastic on the folding hinges."
_
"My Soul's sound excellent but came with a really short cord and the plastic broke the same day I got them."
_
"Some reviews will talk about comfort, they are comfortable, most people expect headphones like these to be light as a feather, that is just plain stupid, some will complain about the material being plastic, I hate to tell them but ALL headphones are made of plastic so that in itself is a STUPID review."
_
"Plastic feels cheap, but durable, cable is questionable."
_
"Comfortable, long cord, seemingly strong plastic."
_
"It's plastic & seems fragileCABLE BUILD1) This is easy."
_
"The cans rest easily on your head.3) The Monoprice feels like a plastic toy."
_
"Very cushy headband.2) The Monoprice is a creaky piece of plastic, but it's still better than the other two.3) The Tascam is pretty close to the Monoprice.4) The Koss are on-ear w o a headband."

Plug

Plug:
"Unfortunately, the quality of the plug is poor."
_
"The plug in broke after the second use."
_
"the headphones have a weak connection at the port where it plugs into a phone to play music."
_
"Headphones sounded decent, and the price seemed too good to be true, but the cable at the plug end started crackling and failed after about 2 months of light use."
_
"Unfortunately the plug will obviously not stay hanging partially into the device that way and I now have no choice but to return these."
_
"While I don't get to use them as much as I'd like, I do a LOT of video projects, and, so that I don't annoy family, others on the computer on computers nearby, I can plug this into my computer - scared me the first time 'cause it has an adaptive piece that slides over the plug-in for use in what I'm presuming to be a sound booth recording studio."
_
"Headphones sounded decent, and the price seemed too good to be true, but the cable at the plug end started crackling and failed after about 2 months of light use."
_
"We also liked the single wire going from the plug to only the left ear-cuff, instead of the traditional two-wire line that splits just around your chest and one wire goes to the left and the other to the right ear."
_
"They have a nice long cord, a standard plug in, and even fold inward to be about half their size."
_
"Pros: + Great sound (as far as I can tell) + Long cord + Straight, tangle free cord + Includes plug adapter + Simple packaging + Pretty comfortable + Solid adjustable mechanism on the side; stays in place + Great value (I paid under $25 on a lightening deal)Cons: - Could be more comfortable, wish it went completely over the ears - Not very adjustable flexible in terms of ear-to-ear width, which makes it tight on my largish head."

_
"innerfidelity it was clear, that peak on 9kHz range will make them sound much brighter than neutral, but I took the risk."

Size

Size:
"My only complaint is that they are a bit loose on my head ears but I have a small head."
_
"They have a few problems however: the pads are extremely uncomfortable, I had to replace them with a set of brainwavz pads for another $25; the size adjustment is very weak and sometimes slips when walking or just moving around; and finally, they only lasted about 6 months before the wire in one of the ball joints broke and made the right speaker useless."
_
"The only problem is they will not fit small heads."
_
"Some reviews will mention head size well as with any headphones they are not perfect I have tried $200 headphones and they did not fit well on my head so when it comes to head size yes you may have to shop around but that is NOT the fault of the headphones blame mother nature."

_
"If you have a large head (not pun intended) then these will be a great value for you, but if you have an average or small head then you'll want to pass these by."

Treble

Treble:
"For people that dont consider this as much of a problem, the treble sounds inoffensive or overly polite, but I personally think it makes some songs sound wrong."
_
"Without equalization, the treble presentation just sounds wrong to me."
_
"A little too bright treble is a weakness, too."
_
"But a bigger problem is treble, which is a little too polite to be neutral."

_
"There is a treble peak at about 10kHz but other than that these are almost perfect."
_
"According to HeadRoom's measurements and many people's common impressions, the HD 280 Pro has a little subdued treble compared to the SRH440 which has great mids to treble balance when compared to my reference speakers."
_
"Mids to treble balance is good."
_
"The treble high frequencies are nicely balanced, without being too muted or too sizzling hot, and it never sounds too strident even when played loud."
