Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
").Two weeks later, the audio cable connection to the headphones broke on the right hand side (remember that flimsy Onkyo proprietary connection)."
_
"Also the cord release function is difficult to use and the tips of my cord actually broke while removing them, rendering the headphones completely useless."
_
"Only complaint is that I wish the cord was longer."
_
"Reading on the Onkyo website, they recommended you not remove the audio cord from the headphones too often."
_
"They play above their price point, fit comfortably - for me they go completely over the ears - and one of the best factors is that they look damn cooler than a lot of poorer sounding options (which are at a similar price point).I believe at this point they have been updated to a newer model, but the differences are minimal, and mostly consist of a better cable (one that has buttons mic which is nice as these are best suited to mobile listening in my opinion).I would describe the sound as even and expected."
_
"I guess there might be some great reason why Onkyo chose this cable, but I don't like it."
_
"You do not need an oxygen free cable for these phones, or at least the odds are good that you need $30 more than you need the oxygen free cable."

Fit

Fit:
"Finally, the left earcup of my pair had an annoying creak caused by some looseness in the fit of the inner and outer cup housing."
_
"Unfortunately they only fit a few head sizes, not any that are rather small, but it fits mine."
_
"They sound crappy with lighter music, and they don't fit that well."
_
"They play above their price point, fit comfortably - for me they go completely over the ears - and one of the best factors is that they look damn cooler than a lot of poorer sounding options (which are at a similar price point).I believe at this point they have been updated to a newer model, but the differences are minimal, and mostly consist of a better cable (one that has buttons mic which is nice as these are best suited to mobile listening in my opinion).I would describe the sound as even and expected."
_
"Many people will be able to fit their ears all the way inside the cups, which helps comfort."
_
"Headclamp is much stronger with the Amperior, but I still found them fairly comfortable, with the split headband being genius for a secure fit that spreads the force out nicely."
_
"In sum, the sound is mostly terrific, I loved hearing each song as a revelation, and the fit is almost there, but ends up being problematic."
_
"On a more practical note --- these things don't fit nearly as well as one might expect, and when they do shift, I am reminded of those awful noises vinyl couches make when you shift around on them."

Music

Music:
"However, this problem was only found on a few cuts of music."
_
"This can pose a problem in getting the volume up to a level that provides good heft and body to most of the music without having the vocal get irritating."
_
"They sound crappy with lighter music, and they don't fit that well."
_
"They won't blow you away with rich juicyness, but they never disappoint - though there are music genres that it performs better in than others."
_
"Instruments are clearly separated in most music, with a terrific sense of the character of each instrument."
_
"This can pose a problem in getting the volume up to a level that provides good heft and body to most of the music without having the vocal get irritating."
_
"The balance is excellent, but if you're listening to acoustic music, you may notice that some of this balance comes at the expense of enjoying the truly acoustic sound."
_
"If you truly enjoy listening to music, give them a try."

Sound

Sound:
"The connectors are terrible and both pairs developed problems where the sound would cut in an out within a week."
_
"They sound crappy with lighter music, and they don't fit that well."
_
"In the meantime, there is nothing wrong with the sound here, and though you can get somewhat better sound for a lot more money in portable device headphones, the Onkyos will be a great combination of quality and value for most shoppers."
_
"Good sound quality."
_
"Good sound quality for the price."
_
"I found them to be very balanced sounding with a slight bass emphasis and a very good soundstage for a closed headphone."
_
"Classical sounds clear and executed, but slightly dry - not enrapturing."
_
"I can run this headphone perfectly fine with an iPhone, ibasso DX50, Fiio X3 directly and amplifying it doesn't improve the sound much, it's a very easily driven headphone."
