Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Only possible objection is the coiled cord, which can be a little annoying if you're more than 3-4 feet from the plugin source, as there will be tension on the left side."
_
"The cord and connectors seem weak."
_
"I have had some flimsy headphones in the past where the cord was skinny and sooner or later (usually the former,) the cord would get a short in it, causing audio distortions."
_
"Coiled cord - Fixes the problem with the tugging, but also is quite heavy and long."
_
"I wanted a coiled cord because the Porta Pros broke from the base of the cord and presumably from tugging and twisting."
_
"great audio until my dog ate the cable"
_
"Extremely durable design and a detachable cable so you won't accidentally damage you're contacts by yoinking it too hard."
_
"My only complaint is the cord is really heavy, no problem when I am practicing at home on my amp, but throwing them on when I'm on the bus leads to issues, but overall I love the sound, the design, and the company, I recommend them:-) Do it, great bang for the buck"
_
"I liked the coiled cord."
_
"Nice sturdy coiled cord, fit perfectly over my ears, and they really do block out all noise."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Unfortunately they aren't very comfortable for me."
_
"The machining is of a very high qualityThe headband is not particularly well padded or comfortable, but comfort is adequate."
_
"The only downside is that they're not very comfortable- after using them for about and hour and a half they start to hurt your ears (if you have big ears, like me)."
_
"Fit the Koss DJ100 beautifully and are so much more comfortable."
_
"Great sound and comfortable."
_
"Great headphones in terms of clarity, comfort and sound quality."
_
"Sound good, look good, well constructed and comfortable."

"I believe the Sennheisers' oval pads (especially the 598s exquisite comfort) make the most sense and have been the most comfortable headphones I've used."

Design

Design:
"I contemplated of buying the really thin metal strap headphones without any silver metal details, but I thought they might be weak although better in design and a bit more in price."
_
"UPDATE_2.. now that i had this for a while, i want to add couple of things;-the head pad is as bad as the ear pads, simply put: it sucks, too thin, uncomfortable..-the silver cup holders are all plastic, including the swivel joint, it appears fairly solid but i wouldn't count on it surviving any real type of stress..UPDATE_3.. i have demoted my rating to two stars, and no longer recommend it,check the attached pic, this thing is designed to fail...overall scores, -build quality 2 10 -comfort 3 10 -sound quality 7 10"

Level

Level:
"Later I broke them in again, this time at super loud levels of music and hiss for 50+ hours."
_
"It is possible to get some bass out of them by turning up the volume to uncomfortable levels, however in most cases the bass booster feature in most music players is your best option."
_
"It's possible I was listening too loudly, but I'm aware of listening levels and this problem has only happened before with the m50s."
_
"(also the connector pin sporadically triggered the voice command function on my blackberry, but that's only ever happened on that phone)Comfort Level - 1 10 - Terrible ear pads."
_
"I read so many reviews on other headphones and their comfort levels that I thought these would be no different."
_
"Isolation is fine at comfortable listening levels I didn't hear any outside noise."
_
"My computer did not require any extra amplification, my Sansa Clip zip did benefit but only slightly I found it to be a comfortable listening level with the volume at max."
_
"(also the connector pin sporadically triggered the voice command function on my blackberry, but that's only ever happened on that phone)Comfort Level - 1 10 - Terrible ear pads."
_
"Build Quality and Comfort Level:Build Quality 7 10 - Really solid feeling, lots of metal, the only real negative is that the ear pads are thin & the pleather seems subpar."

Listening

Listening:
"It's possible I was listening too loudly, but I'm aware of listening levels and this problem has only happened before with the m50s."
_
"This is good if you like variability but not so good if you want a consistent listening experience without worrying about positioning."
_
"Only minor problem I found was lower quality when listening to lower frequencies."
_
"The bass is present but not overpowering, the highs are perfect for long hours of listening and the vocals (especially for women) are outstanding."
_
"Listening from computer sound card, sound is accurate and fantastic, if this is what warm sound is like, I now have a reference!"
_
"Isolation is fine at comfortable listening levels I didn't hear any outside noise."
_
"My computer did not require any extra amplification, my Sansa Clip zip did benefit but only slightly I found it to be a comfortable listening level with the volume at max."
_
"If you enjoy listening to very forward, very nasally congested vocals, enjoy tinny, thin bass, and sharply rolled off trebles, I suppose this is your headphone."

Music

Music:
"On one of the headphones, the fidelity of the music greatly degraded within a year after purchase."
_
"Although heavy and bulky, they keep out most office sounds and keep my music from spreading to my coworkers, which they hate."
_
"Later I broke them in again, this time at super loud levels of music and hiss for 50+ hours."
_
"The sound quality is very good, but dont expect your music to be hidden, the noise travels outside of the headphones a lot."
_
"I ve nevered used them for dj work but for music production they worked great."
_
"I know that some users disagree with the DJ labeling of these headphones, but with the way they are tuned I did find that they gave the best overall sound when using them with that style of music (when listening without an EQ)."
_
"If you can find the Koss DJ100s for around $60 and like to listen to the types of music listed above, then you'll probably enjoy them."
_
"Obviously, great for music."
_
"It is possible to get some bass out of them by turning up the volume to uncomfortable levels, however in most cases the bass booster feature in most music players is your best option."

Noise

Noise:
"While they aren't noise-cancelling, they do a great job of muffling background noise so I can hear my music."
_
"The sound quality is very good, but dont expect your music to be hidden, the noise travels outside of the headphones a lot."
_
"I held out on writing a review until I had a chance to DJ with them live, as I was concerned with how well they would challenge outside noise."
_
"The sound quality is very good, but dont expect your music to be hidden, the noise travels outside of the headphones a lot."
_
"These headphones are not noise-canceling, but they fit really snug and the ear pads work well enough to reduce the bleed-by noise of my own playing by about 75 percent."
_
"Not noise cancelling... however, I would definitely recommend this product or purchase it again."
_
"Bought these headphones to be able to listen to music without having to hear everybody else in the office, cancels out other noise and the sound is great! "
_
"Good noise reduction."

Price

Price:
"And the ability to go stereo to mono is cool... there is decent sound... but cheap & uncomfortable w o bass kinda ruins the experience."
_
"If you care about sound quality, and don't have budget for ATH M50s, it is TOUGH to find a pair of headphones that can compete with this one in this price range (The shure 440s, Aurvanas, etc are all mediocre compared to this one).For people new to high quality audio: These headphones are not for bassheads."
_
"I contemplated of buying the really thin metal strap headphones without any silver metal details, but I thought they might be weak although better in design and a bit more in price."
_
"Very good sound for the price!"
_
"Although there are likely higher quality headphones, I believe it is an excellent product for its price range."
_
"I would recommend this for anyone looking for a pair of headphones in this price range"
_
"Good for price but not what the reviews represent."
_
"And the ability to go stereo to mono is cool... there is decent sound... but cheap & uncomfortable w o bass kinda ruins the experience."

Quality

Quality:
"Good quality though just doesn't sound great."
_
"The sound quality is very good, but dont expect your music to be hidden, the noise travels outside of the headphones a lot."

_
"Was never a fan of over the ear cups headphones but I like the sound quality of this one, but still what I dislike about OTE Cups headphones persist, If you're someone comfortable with over the ear headphones with great sound quality at this price range, then this one is perfect for you"
_
"Only minor problem I found was lower quality when listening to lower frequencies."
_
"UPDATE_2.. now that i had this for a while, i want to add couple of things;-the head pad is as bad as the ear pads, simply put: it sucks, too thin, uncomfortable..-the silver cup holders are all plastic, including the swivel joint, it appears fairly solid but i wouldn't count on it surviving any real type of stress..UPDATE_3.. i have demoted my rating to two stars, and no longer recommend it,check the attached pic, this thing is designed to fail...overall scores, -build quality 2 10 -comfort 3 10 -sound quality 7 10"

_
"The coiled cord is very thick although it is pretty funny that it has a dinky, little iPhone size connector at the end."
_
"Cons: Bass is a lil low, volume output is a bit small (get an amp and its all good), you gtta break them in they are a bit stiff and snug."
