Fit

Fit:
"Everyone's head is different, but if you find the pads uncomfortable or the fit too tight, you can gently accelerate this process by clamping the headphones around something slightly larger than your head."
_
"I initially purchased these because I absolutely hate earbuds (they don't fit into my ears, they fall out, they sound awful, they hurt, they all contain some mystery material that my dogs and cat find extremely attractive and tasty)."
_
"Love the fit."
_
"I was surprised with how well these fit and isolated sound."
_
"Fits my ears well, comfortable during long listening."
_
"These fit the bill nicely."

Music

Music:
"I've never found headphones that I can really wear for prolonged periods of time without hurting my ears- this is a problem since I listen to A LOT of music (nearly always have music on)."
_
"The music sounded horrible and the comfort was terrible."
_
"I'm not an audiophile, but I do love music, and these headphones are working great for me."
_
"Once tweaked with the eq they are really nice sounding, but not the best for bass heavy music."
_
"But the connector had a problem, at certain angles the music in the left ear did not work"
_
"I use these mostly for on the go music listening and have been quite satisfied with them for about half a year now."
_
"The sound is very clear, and allows for all instruments to partake in the music."
_
"I like to listen to soothing music before I read and go to sleep and thought these would be perfect for blocking out ambient sounds."
_
"I would definitely recommend these headphones for music or transcription."
_
"They are very clear for music use as well, although I only used them for that to test the sound on the first day."

Portable

Portable:
"The cable is on the short side which is fine for portable use, and not so great for home use."
_
"It reminded me of how a Portable CD Player which Radio Shack sold for under $50 outperformed many high end CD Players back in the 80s."
_
"Easy to drive with portable devices."
_
"After breaking them in, here are the pros cons I settled on:Pros:-Cheap-Fold up into a very portable size-Great highs and midrange, both as good as if not better than the CALs (and Beats too if that is anyone's point of reference)-Bass is punchy and immersive."
_
"Well now I want another portable pair of headphones, and I just have to get these ones again!"
_
"If I didn't already own Portapros (which edge these out in comfort) i'd call them my favorite portable phones."

Quality

Quality:

_
"I am downgrading it to 1 star because of repeated failures that show poor quality of product."
_

_
"The sound quality is very impressive for the price and size."
_
"very good quality! "

_
"I was skeptical about these, but, I'm so impressed, the sound is very good quality."
