Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"By the following morning both sides were completely dead (no audio at all).For the now even lower price, I would say if you are on a budget and looking for something lasting short-term, these are okay."
_
"The left ear speaker died out, and just blares fuzzy audio, or full on static crackling when I attempt to use them."
_
"Bought for my little brother, who is taking audio engineering, and he loves them."
_
"I like these much better than my Beats Audio headphones for live DJ'ing, these are much more comfortable, and the price is outstanding! "
_
"If your a young dj like me who is looking for a decent pair of professional audio equipment (Don't Get These)Cheap plastic material!"
_
"It's amazing the quality of sound heard with these headphones, numark is the best in audio products, recommend hundred percent"
_

Cable

Cable:
"This is the only problem the cable it comes with, is 8ft long, so you would have to rubber band the cable shorter, or purchased the coiled cable 5ft or what i used was the Beats Cable, but the sound is not the same, thats why i still use the 8ft cable."
_
"The bag coming with it is actually quite handy when you travel a lot, Unplug your cable so you have less chance damaging it and unfold it with care and you'll enjoy this piece of art for a long tim"
_
"**UPDATE**At first i thought the replaceable cord was a plus, but as it turns out its more of a frustration."
_
"I have fallen asleep with them on a couple of times now and didn't wake up with a sore head or broken cans =)I really like that the cord is completely replaceable, that was a bonus i wasn't expecting."
_
"Regarding the cord problem that people have (where the input doesn't seem to stay in the earphone jack), the cord actually has an end with a locking mechanism (It's the straight end jack, not the round-topped jack) that, when turned in the earphone, secures the cable in place, so there should be no issues with the cord coming out of the headphones."
_
"The only thing that i am missing and think it needs to be included is the curly cable."
_
"Cord supplied is very long, ordered a 6ft cord to use with these and works great."
_
"1 4 connection is also robust and has great length on the cord that attaches the heaphones to any mixer or sound board."
_
"I bought the item because I liked the idea of the detachable cord., DO NOT buy THIS ITEM! "
_
"I also like the detachable cord which makes it easier for storing the headphones during transport."
_
"really like the fact that the cord is detachable and that it comes with its own case but would have love it the cord could be plugged into either side as opposed to just the left side."

Fit

Fit:
"I believe that the metal is fresh out the case and therefore needs to be broken in to fit my head."
_
"GREAT FIT FOR TINY HEAD LIKE MINE OR BIG HEAD LIKE MY HUBBY! "
_
"-cord included has one straight end that plugs into the headphones and the other end is a 90 degree angle that fits perfect into my mixer and i dont have to worry about bending and breaking it."
_
"I have a small head (for a male) and it fits perfect."
_
"Comfortable with good padding and fit."

Heavy

Heavy:
"I can't say they're absolutely perfect, because after a few months (~10-14mo) of heavy, yet responsible use, I ran into a problem where the headphones were producing static, first in only one cup and eventually, both."
_
"A bit bass heavy, but I liked that so these were perfect."
_
"As far as comfort, which to me is the most important part, they are fairly heavy, and bulky."
_
"These headphones have served me well for almost three years now, so it's with a heavy heart I give them anything less than five stars."
_
"They aren't noise cancelling so using them on an airplane will not drown out the engine noise..but for the most part, they have great sound (a little heavy on bass) but overall, they are worth the money paid."
_
"Anyway, onto the headphones; the lows are heavy and clear, the mids are nice and the highs are good, but admittedly, could stand to be a bit sharper."

Listening

Listening:
"PROS:Really good sound quality, sleek design, and really good building qualityCONS:Mix between over-ear and on-ear headphones which makes it really uncomfortable, really long chord, makes your ears hurt and become hot, short listening sessions, and the padding isn't that great either."
_
"If you have a music hobby and want great quality sound while working on a music project or listening to some music for a couple of hours, this is a GREAT deal for you."
_
"And if you happen to be a DJ, or musically inclined, you can flip and rotate the earphones to accommodate one-ear listening - it's a pretty nifty feature, though it can often jumble up the headphones for those who don't care for this feature."
_
"He says they are perfect for sitting listening to music."
_
"Comfortable for extended periods of listening."
_
"I am pretty used to listening to loud music and it usually doesn't bother me, but this was happening while I had the noise level low."

Music

Music:
"This product was ok, but was not able to hear very well while music is playing."
_
"sound okay, but I agree with others its like there is a bass boost installed and can be hard to hear with music from the speakers is very loud"
_
"The EQ curve on these is terrible regardless of music selection and the isolation is subpar at best."
_
"Absolute worst head phones out there right now sounds terrible I could barley understand my music"
_
"If you have a music hobby and want great quality sound while working on a music project or listening to some music for a couple of hours, this is a GREAT deal for you."
_
"Overall though, for short term use of monitoring music as a side hobby, these headphones perform well and get the job done."
_
"The EQ curve on these is terrible regardless of music selection and the isolation is subpar at best."

Noise

Noise:
"Here's my pros and cons (Take note that I'm not an audiophile, so my views come from an average Joe who just happens to like music)Pros:DURABILITY - These things are far more durable than any of the other headphones I've used; by about this time, my other headphones would have broken, frayed, lost sound quality noise cancellation, or bit the dust completely."
_
"Youll need to crank up the volume to hear the melody and still with the surrounding noise it will be quite hard to listen."
_
"i'm no professional dj, i'm just using this as an architect student trying to ignore the kids around me and it totally does block out outside noises but not perfectly- it's good enough for me though."
_
"Cancels noise very well, isolates well, super comfortable."
_
"-if you place both cups over your ears, the outside noise is actually suppressed a bit so i do enjoy going home and not having my ears ring all night and the next day."
_
"Comfortable, good bass, noise cancellation is good."
_
"They aren't noise cancelling so using them on an airplane will not drown out the engine noise..but for the most part, they have great sound (a little heavy on bass) but overall, they are worth the money paid."
_
"This has great bass and no ambient noise when totally dawned."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Pretty sturdy but the plastic on the sides broke today for me but I've dropped those headphones from 6-7 feet high a significant number of times so it was bound to happen."
_
"If you notice, there is a plastic notch on the headband part where it meets the large C shaped piece that holds the earphone in place, and mine no longer catches because a screw has completely stripped out and completely broken the plastic."
_
"But the whole build of the headphones is plastic so the whole thing broke in about 8 months."
_
"Right were the band adjusts there is plastic around it and that part broke apart during a gig."
_
"sound great but mad of plastic"
_
"Pretty sturdy but the plastic on the sides broke today for me but I've dropped those headphones from 6-7 feet high a significant number of times so it was bound to happen."
_
"Mostly plastic and lightweight, but VERY durable and VERY handsome."
_
"The plastic is cheaper and less durable than it looks."
_
"This may allow you to connect to music source in different angles (due to casing surrounding music source) but plugging the L snapped end into earpad is not optimal (almost feels like it will fall out very easily).Look Style: The plastic look kinda ruins it, and the thickness of the pads makes it feel somewhat like you are wearing a baseball helmet, but It's the symbol on the earpads that is the catch here."

"Not a lot of features and not very good sound quality."
_
"Sound quality is good, I think people may be confusing the actual equalizing on the headphones with the equalizing options on their iPhone."

Volume

Volume:
"The look is also great, these just look cool, they are bigger then expected, and stand out in a crowd (which is what you want when spinning at a club)The high end can start clipping a little at high volume which is the only complaint I have, but thats when I was pushing them."
_
"They drivers are strong enough to deliver a great sound with strong volume without any distortion (well, pump ANY headphone up to 11 and guaranteed you'll crest that distortion, but hey, I want my hearing for the rest of my life).Comfort: along with a great build, these also feel great, even over long periods of time."
