Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Sitting with these on for hours is not comfortable or fun."
_
"Pros and Cons~~~~~~~~~~~~+ detachable cable (easier to transport, lower risk of damage, also see Hack #1 below)+ each earcup rotates 90 degrees independently from each other - in either direction - front of back+ cable goes in on the left, easy way to tell L from R+ one cable end is L-shaped, easier for phones and phone cases (cable works either way)+ reasonable job reducing outside sound and not leaking your music at non-quiet places (eg coffee shops)+ the headband padding up top is comfortable, no issues, I don't even notice it's there+ headband adjustment gives you up to 3cm on each side (independently adjustable)+ non-boring industrial-ish design+ cloth cable with one button and mic (works iOS and Android)- but no volume control on the cable's button- have noticeable problem with some of the Bass frequencies (potential deal killer)- sound more closed than other closed back headphones (maybe linked to bass sound issues)- comfort issues, especially with glasses, get too uncomfortable (pressure on sides of head) for more than 1-2 hours (potential deal killer)- because of shape design, they feel heavier than they are (10 oz on their own, cable is +0.4 oz)- leak some sound in quiet room (I think partly because of earcup and earpad design not creating good seal)BASS ISSUES: some of the bass is not under control, so it can overwhelm the rest of the music and distract you from enjoying your music."

"As a DJ and avid gamer I'm always in the market for new and decent quality headphones."
_
"Great sound quality and fit!"
_
"I wanted to love this headphone and use as an everyday gear but the moment I put it on my ear and started a familiar music that I listen through studio quality monitoring headphones as well as studio monitor speakers that are of different brands but sound very similar, this 808 just played a different tune altogether."
_
"Overall these are a good deal if you want some decent quality at a reasonable price."
