Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"i would not give 4 stars if i paid $25... maybe 3.5.not perfect though.. the cord is VERY short."
_
"pros: cheap and sounds greatcons: short cord, not good for big headed people."
_
"Aside from the fact that they're comfortable and have a heavy-duty cord that doesn't tangle, well...I should admit that my experience with the Sonys was not entirely Sony's fault."
_
"Sounds good, can withstand some abuse (at least one involuntary hard cord yank) and looks great."
_
"Good length for a cord."
_
"I gave them a shot and here's what I love:- ONE cord."
_
"More concerning is that the plastic and the thin cable gives me concern for durability but I buy cheap headphone because I'm not too careful with them and I expect to replace them every 2-3 years."
_
"Great design: comfortable, light, fold intelligently, single-side cord."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"They look like they'd fit my head weird, but they are very comfortable."
_
"It does compact well though so it makes for a pretty good travel headphones especially at around $30.If you are really worried about comfort don't get these as due to the size and hard foam they do compress and therefore hurt your ears after a while."
_
"I was using Sennheiser HD 202's, although they were decent at a similar price point, the comfort was not great for extended use."
_
"However, shifting the band forward slightly with it fully extended is so far the best option, and I don't foresee comfort being a huge problem."
_
":) On the plus side, I thought they were very comfortable to wear, although perhaps a little TOO flimsy for my taste."
_
"Comfort is ok, but does tend to pinch my ears causing some discomfort after awhile."
_
"Light, comfortable, good sound (I'm not a connoisseur, but they sound great to me), folds up compact."
_
"Comfort is also great but at first they might be little aggravating until you get use to them Isolation is ok you can hear people talking in the background so you have to turn the volume up little ."
_
"Nice set of lightweight and very travel-worthy headphones, comfortable, fit my ears OK."
_
"Man...I want to love these so much, but they are just NOT comfortable."
_
"I still recommend, they're very comfortable and sound great."

Headphone

Headphone:
"My boyfriend's headphones broke, so I let him use mine, and he's pretty rough with them - doing inattentive things such as picking up his laptop with the headphones dangling from the jack; standing up with the headphones wrapped around his neck, and them still plugged into the laptop; occasional escapades forgotten, squished deep into the couch cushions."
_
"not the greatest looking headphones on the market, but certainly the best sound quality at this price"
_
"First off, my honest take on people here complaining about these headphones is to get off your high horse."
_
"I don't recommend sitting on your soft-sided work bag while the headphones are inside it."
_
"Wonderful sound even better price Thank You MEElectronics the first Headphones on the ear (supra Aural) that arent uncomfortable after an hour."
_
"If you are uncertain about the quality of these 2nd generation headphones, go ahead and pick them up... You won't be sorry! "
_
"I love these headphones and have bought 2 pairs so fair."
_
"However, for the cost, the sound quality is unbelievable, and the headphones are good quality, and fit even my over-sized skull."
_
"for $15 they are prob the best headphone you can find"
_
"Nice set of lightweight and very travel-worthy headphones, comfortable, fit my ears OK."
_
"Obviously you shouldn't expect audiophile quality from a $15 headphone, but if you really want to have fun listening to music, I suggest investing in a good pair like Grado or Sennheiser."

_
"Highly recommended as a low cost headset."
_

_
"The high marks for these headsets are well deserved."

_
"I love listening to music when working on my laptop, the sounds are clear and I don't have to turn music up really loud to hear it."
_
"I can see how some people recommend not using them for long-term listening, but I'm going to variate it and recommend you adjust them or move them around different areas of your ears to keep things fresh (maybe put the Left side on the right and vice versa).Really, gather all the spare change you have left around the house, heck, ask your parents, siblings, neighbor, etc."
_
"Possibly the best stocking stuffer with Christmas coming up for anyone who enjoys listening to music, tv or whatever else."

Music

Music:
"For the money I can't complain to much but there is a detail of the headphones that is really a deal breaker for me: The bass is very good but overdone by the very forward highs and mids that are instant;y in your ear making the bass not as strong and the music not as enjoyable."
_
"Still, it's fairly well presented, and music like this isn't supposed to be easy to listen to anyway."
_
"Great for career training videos, music, movies, or playing video games at night and not waking the kids."
_
"I just wanted something cheap to listen to web videos on my PC after the kids went to bed, but these work great for music as well."
_
"Obviously you shouldn't expect audiophile quality from a $15 headphone, but if you really want to have fun listening to music, I suggest investing in a good pair like Grado or Sennheiser."

_
"At the higher volumes I found myself listening to the HT-21s at in order to drown out the noise of the cafeteria, some songs were downright painful to listen to."
_
"Strong sound and noise blocking foam make these a great pair of headphones."
_
"You won't choke yourself by accident with this like you do with the dual-cord headphones- easy to see R versus L- incredible sound reproduction - truly I was amazed that these sounded *so good* for such tiny, inexpensive phones- comes with a waterproof baggie with a drawstring for travel- fit well over ears and very comfy padding- adjustable width across the headband works for kids or adults, small or large noggins- drown out surrounding noise surprisingly well for size and price- keep your music in your ears so you're not bombarding your neighbors on the bus or elsewhere with your musical taste- the ear phones FOLD UP into the arc of the headband so they fit in a pocket, no kidding!"
_
"Fit well over the ear and block out most of the outside noise."
