Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"I've tried other headphones with the same music player, and they all work correctly; I've tried these Geminis with multiple audio sources, and the Geminis themselves are definitely broken."
_
"So overall, you get headphones that are reasonably pleasant to listen to, have good soundstage, and work well in noisy environments, but which are missing significant audio information due to a notch in the upper midrange."
_
"I also purchashedHosa MHE100.5 Headphone Adapter Cable (1 4-Inch Female to 3.5MM Male, 6 Inch) because it converts from a 1 4 to 3.5mm jack, and also eases the strain on my already failing audio jack."
_
"Made by Sennheiser -- one of, if not the best, audio company in the world."
_
"My Motorola phone can't drive these too well, but my onboard computer audio can."
_
"(Pictures attached where the hinge broke)Audio Quality - I'm not an audiophile, so I cannot judge sound, base, lows and highs, and so forth, besides saying I can listen to games, music and movies just fine."

"Audio Technica ATH-M50xPROS:Look pretty cool."
_
"Somewhat old onboard audio codec, but it still sounds amazing with these."
_
"I have my pc on the right side, I put my portable audio device in my right pocket for ease of access...everything is done on the right side, but the chord crosses over to my left."

Cable

Cable:
"But unfortunately, the cable started flaking out earlier this evening."
_
"I'm trying to make up my mind whether to RMA these or perhaps attempt a detachable cable mod."
_
"There were other build-quality issues with these too before they outright broke; the strain relief where the cable went into the left ear cup used to creak annoyingly when the cable moved (this was a purely mechanical effect of rubber creaking, not an electronic issue."
_
"I am very satisfied with my purchase, however- just treat these well, as some others have experienced the cable going out after a couple of months, though the cable is made out of a tougher material then my Sennheiser HD 518's (which still work perfectly after 9 months of usage), we'll see if this happens later on, although with the nylon braided extension cable, it should be less likely that the cable gets damaged."
_
"Spiraled cord is annoying however."
_
"The cable and connector give the outward appearance of being very well built."
_
"The cable insulation looks nice and thick, and the connector (with its spring strain relief) looks like a quality part."
_
"Also, keep in mind that while the cable is great for portable situations, it's pretty bad at desk scenarios."
_

_
"Cord is flexible and has two options for the plugin, which is great."

Metal

Metal:
"Though, I think this is because I have stretched the headphones out to release the clamp pressure a small bit, so I may have damaged the metal headband piece slightly."
_
"The metal piece attaching the band to the headphones is flimsy, and in fact it came damaged having limited swiveling on the right side."
_
"Jack is made of metal, and has a nice protector to prevent excessive wear from flexing."
_
"They are primarily metal but the padding is very good."
_
"Plug has nice metal construction."
_
"Jack is made of metal, and has a nice protector to prevent excessive wear from flexing."
_
"Very nicely built: metal and leather headband, soft leather earcups."
_
"the cable that comes on these bad boys is a VERY good coiled cable with an all metal plug and genuine spring relief."

Sound

Sound:
"They sound more detailed (though maybe not as...clear) than my desktop klipsch promedia 2.1 and by far the best sounding headphones ive ever tried."
_
"Immediately after I ordered them I was worried that they would not sound the same as the pro 80s, that the cost cutting must come from somewhere."
_
"Not only do they sound amazing...they beat out my Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohms in sound quality."
_
"Sure, the build quality is a bit flimsy, but they sound fantastic."
_
"Pro's-Sounds great with great recordings-Quality product with quality materials-Good Bass responseCon's-High's are a tad bit too bright and sharp especially with long listening sessions-Designed for smaller heads takes a lot of metal bending to feel comfortable on a bigger head but since the metal is quality there was no worry of anything breaking pretty easy to mold to your likesSummary: Appears to be quality product but something about the sound signature is not pleasing and I would rather have a nice Sennheiser or Sony headphone over this."
_
"Sound great and feel great."
_
")Sound This is where I would like to start off the review, because the sound is probably the best thing about these cans."
_
"For gaming although, these sound really good, but sometimes the bullet whistling from a sniper can be piercing as the highs again produce that accurate sound.Build I wanted to give this a 3, because my left ear cup has a noticeable crackle noise when stretched out."
_
"arrived in good condition, awsome sound."
