Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I have had the Beats Solo and my 2 complaints with Beats is after an hour or so, they are not comfortable anymore, and beats artificially inflates bass beyond normal which I do not like."
_
"Comfortable for my small ears as it's all hidden inside."
_
"The only downside of this product is probably comfort."
_
"Not only for superior sound, but for the comfortable cups that now treat them to audiobooks and music!"
_
"Absolutely love these, they are comfortable and sound great!"
_
"Great sound, and comfortable."
_
"When I saw these, I had to get them for the price they were at...great sound, and love the way they fit my ears... these are smaller than I expected, but after trying them on... sweet fit, and super comfortable... also great as gaming headset, as they have a built in heavy duty mic on the cord... and, me... being a Halo fan, Idk.... but if Master Chief were to wear headphones, these are what I envision him wearing!"
_
"Overall comfort is great and only gets better as time goes on."
_
"Great for comfortable noise isolation in active office environment when listening to music or podcasts."

Control

Control:
"Only downside is they do not have volume controls on the cord."
_
"The only negative is that there is no volume control on the Apple Talk button on the cord."
_
"WIRE:The Monster Diesel VEKTR only comes with 1 wire with a ControlTalk and a microphone inbuilt for you to take calls, play, Pause, THE WORST PART OF THE CONTROL TALK:The control talk will not let you change the volume and so you will have to control it directly from your mobile device."
_
"I was disappointed by the fact that the control talk DOES NOT have a volume button like it's shown on the description pictures."
_
"Pros:- Stylish- Detachable cord allows you to easily replace it if damaged, and it makes packing them up a bit easier- Good sound- Microphone built into the cord (I've never used it, though, so I can't say how well it works)- Controls for volume and phone callsCons:- The headband isn't padded very well."
_
"Great headphones , the best headphones i ever had ,,,, only bad thing i found that the control talk is partially compatible with android , people buying this headphone to use with android phones will only be able to play pause a song or change the song to next song by double pressing the button on the wire."
_
"The controls are only fully compatible with certain phones .."
_
"Great Quality, amazing sound, the controls doesnt work with ipod shuffle tho ... but overall an excellent item 100% recommended"
_
"The control talk works perfectly with my android device."
_
"- from a one day ownership - 5 stars - so far - despite only pause control talk and comfort in question - design and sound (better over beats! )"

_
"Compact folding design makes them easy to take anywhere."
_
"I'm using it everyday on my way to work and on my way back home, i really love the design, i travel a lot with public transport like the buss and train, they're comfy on my ears and they've got a good mid-range sound in my opinion."
