Fit

Fit:
"The earpieces fold in for storage and while the adjustability is somewhat limited, I have a small head and these fit me just fine--something I've not been able to say about other headphones--and no slippage."
_
"I had visions of a very awkward fit and uncomfortable phones that required taking them off every so often."
_
"Fits very well."
_
"Square shape didn't fit around my ear well."
_
"The sound is a perfect fit for me (I'm very very very picky); a lot of bass, but not in the way of a crystal clear sound when I listen to a classical trumpet concert...."
_
"While the initial fit is quite comfortable as many have noted, I find that the tight grip on my head leads to discomfort and fatigue after less than two hours."
_
"They fit very comfortably over my ears after long periods of time, and the noise-cancelling works well."

Heavy

Heavy:
"I received this as a present for Christmas and when I used them on my first trip, I could confirm that they are very heavy and not very comfortable for long trips."
_
"The only problem is that they are very heavy headphones and they become uncomfortable after a while."
_
"The only thing i have to complain about is the fact that they are heavy, after about 45 mins, the top of my head starts to feel a burning sensation where the band is and makes an impression on my hair."
_
"It does that and the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is it is so heavy I can only wear it for a very, very short time because it becomes so painful on the top of my head so consiquintly I very seldom use the headphones."
_
"The Monster Inspiration is really bass heavy and on some songs was just uncomfortable."
_
"PROS:- Awesome sound quality- Loud- Minimal leakage (you won't bother the people next to you)- Active noise canceling works well- Great, tight fitCONS:- They are VERY heavy"
_
"Headphones are pretty heavy too, so if they're not snug, they can start to slip."
_
"Normally this would make me feel like headphones are trash, but in this case the sound actually compensates for it....They are pretty heavy, but I do like that."
_
"Athough the BASS is not deep enough for me, as I am more of an Heavy Bass guy, it would be nice to have the option to add a twist to it."
_
"Even though the headband is comfortable, this set is still very heavy on the head."

Listening

Listening:
"My previous experience with Monster headphones was not good, I ended up returning them because I couldn't stand listening to the muddy bass heavy sound profile created by some seemingly tone deaf engineer."
_
"The only problem, is that if you have a bit of a large head, after listening to this for a few hours (like a long journey) my ears do start to hurt because of the pressure from both sides."
_
"The Inspiration seemed to fix most of the problems that I had with the Studios, which predominantly was how uncomfortable they got after extended listening periods."
_
"But the ear cups, and headband are a bit uncomfortable, so after about 4 or 5 hours of listening it will begin to feel, just not that good."
_
"Caveat here, of course, is the quality of the audio to which you are listening, whether you use an EQ, and so on, will affect how music sounds."
_
"I really enjoy listening to music on these, while I'm not an audiophile, I do believe the produce great sound."
_
"The design of the ear cups make listening enjoyable, they do not clamp down on my ears and the plush ear cups (might be synthetic leather) are very comfortable for extended listening sessions."
_
"Looks really good but sounds muffle and not to detailed while listening to Michael W. Smith the blessing."
_
"I really enjoyed wearing them and listening to music through them, I didn't notice any problems while having them on and I also didn't feel any ear pain due to having the removable ear piece on the right side of the headset."

Music

Music:
"If you really crank it up with 'bassy' music, it's actually a bit scary."
_
"Bose, Bowers, AT) and clearly have no well rounded perspective of what REAL music sounds like."
_
"I'm not sure why they even put it in there as an option because without it the music doesn't sound that good."
_
"You can listen to music but it isn't a terrific experience."
_
"In the NYC subway, the noise cancelling function works great, you can continue to enjoy your favorite music without the annoying sound of a train entering the station."
_
"I really enjoy listening to music on these, while I'm not an audiophile, I do believe the produce great sound."
_
"In complete honesty if you're looking for a pair of headphones to actually listen to music (not make ore mix it) in these are a pretty great choice especially considering how cheap they are going for right now."
_
"These were made to enjoy music not make it, and they knock it out of the park in that aspect."
_
"The noise cancelling improves the sound quality as well, the music gets noticeably louder and more crisp."

Noise

Noise:
"The noise cancellation is very good probably not as good as the Bose but that is based on subjective data."
_
"Noise cancelling isn't very good."
_
"There is a very annoying creaking and groaning noise that it makes from any movement of my head while wearing these."
_
"Unfortunately I'm not very happy with either the noise canceling or the comfort in actual use during flights."
_
"Following a week of usage it developed an annoying buzzing noise."
_
"Pro : Tight Bass, Apt treble , Solid Build quality , Comfortable, You can play music even if noise cancellation is off ( or batteries die), Stylish (comes with changing headbands)Cons : Expensive, Noise cancellation not as well as BOSE , You may loose Mids sometimes (you dont even observe it).Im a student, I listen to hip-hop , rock , some country .. and other mixed genre."
_
"Do not buy this if you are looking for good noise canceling."
_

Price

Price:
"Value for Money 1 5 - I believe that the product is not that durable."
_
"Price was super awesome too, cant complain when the price was less than half on Amazon.... AMAZON you rock !"
_
"The problem was always the price."
_
"They sound great but since the noise cancellation doesn't work that well, you may as well save a bunch of money and try something like the Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones."
_
"Noise cancelling in the regular mode is OK but once again, you would probably be disappointed with it at this price range."
_
"Bass is clean and doesn't over power the highs and mids, the build quality is above standard for this price range and they are comfortable to wear all day."
_
"In complete honesty if you're looking for a pair of headphones to actually listen to music (not make ore mix it) in these are a pretty great choice especially considering how cheap they are going for right now."
_
"Just as well built as beats and for a lot less money."
_
"Worth the bargain price; never would have paid regular price though; probably could have found an equally good sound for the bargain price in other headphones, maybe."

Quality

Quality:
"I bought these to replace some beats wireless headphones I bought a few years ago and was reluctant to spend more than $100 on my next set of cans as I was very disappointed with the sound quality of the beats."
_
"My problem is with the quality."
_
"I spent a lot of time looking for a good pair of headphones that are not just great in sound quality but also look very good."
_
"My guidelines were, no more then 300 dollars, good looking and durable build quality."
_
"The build quality is impressive but not as impressive as the Studios which were made out of aluminum, these headphones have some plastic and it does not have the same solid feel that the Studios had."
_
"The degredation of audio quality in those other headphones as a result of the ANC is terrible."
_
"The quality of the sound was great...for the 2 months i had them before the earpiece material began to separate from their plastic bases."
_
"Indeed they are sturdy and comfortable but the driver quality is a different subject."
_
"I have enjoyed the sound quality and have used them mainly while flying."
_
"Overall a warm and likeable sound quality that makes these headphones easy to listen to for hours."
_
"First I would not pay $200 let alone $300 for these headphones but for sub $100 they are a good buy because of their build quality, look, the number of cables included (3) and active noise cancelling."

Sound

Sound:
"I bought these to replace some beats wireless headphones I bought a few years ago and was reluctant to spend more than $100 on my next set of cans as I was very disappointed with the sound quality of the beats."
_
"The inspirations can be EQed to make your brain vibrate loose and still sound amazingly clear across all frequencies if that's what you like (Honestly they sound pretty awesome with no EQing).Comfort: 8 10 It definitely has smaller ear cups, if you have a big head ears these will be more of a weird on around ear hybrid (I'm average smaller and mine barley fit)."
_
"These are what Beats by Dre aspire to be when they grow up (You know not insanely over priced mediocre sounding).If you are looking at these obviously you aren't expecting a flat sounding headphone for audio work (Go look at M50X's or I use UE 6000's personally)."
_
"I spent a lot of time looking for a good pair of headphones that are not just great in sound quality but also look very good."
_
"The sound is very average (I'm not going to go in depth as people on here have gone sufficiently in depth about the average sound).These ear buds are really uncomfortable when you wear them for more than an hour."
_
"I don't know the specific reason, but the QC15s, even though they sound mediocre in a quiet environment, actually sound quite good in a noisey environment if for no other reason than you can hear the bass (the background noise floor is low) and the rest of the music."
_
"The sound is amazing!"
_
"Fantastic sound."
_
"incredible sound, perfect case, the leather could be less smooth to fix at head"
_
"Then again, I was happy with the sound from my iPhone earphones."
_
"They sound great!"
