Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"BEWARE if you plan to use an extender cord get a decent one or there will be no bass."
_
"My one gripe is that the cord doesn't straighten out easily."
_
"The only downside is that the cord is pretty short, but that is easily solved by getting an extender cord."
_
"The cord is pretty short."
_
"These headphones were my best just that the cord eventually got a shortage"
_
"In all, you can definitely tell:~ they focused all of their energy into the ear section of the headphones~ they just threw on any old band on it and called it good~ mixed feelings about the cable type"
_
"Just from my experience braided cables last much longer and are extremely difficult to kink or mess up, but so far the plastic cable has held up pretty well."
_
"Much better and comfortable with 50mm drivers rather than the 40s on the HA-S44.Pros: great bass, durable cable, very comfortable, good overall sound and catchy design;Cons: the others close to you can easily hear music from headphones otherwise it isolates pretty good the external noise."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I've had a jvc mini stereo system since I was a kid, to this day it still sounds amazing, when I got these I was disappointed, sure they're lightweight and comfortable but the sound seems slightly better than a ten dollar pair of headphones, wish I hadn't bought these and spent a little more to get something better"
_
"For 40 dollars you get a nice pair of headphones that are comfortable for hours and hours of use...I used to own the Logitech G430's and those were very uncomfortable for me, these are much cheaper and much more comfortable then the G430 gaming headset."
_
"Construction quality was very good and the ear pads were comfortable."
_
"A nice buy for under $32, just based on sound quality and comfort."
_
"I've had a jvc mini stereo system since I was a kid, to this day it still sounds amazing, when I got these I was disappointed, sure they're lightweight and comfortable but the sound seems slightly better than a ten dollar pair of headphones, wish I hadn't bought these and spent a little more to get something better"
_
"We'll just say they rock, well built and comfortable, cheaper than the same product at wally world, what more can I say! "
_
"Good sound comfortable fit, but bass is not deep as I was wanting."

Music

Music:
"Those phones will provide more natural, detailed sound, but their lower efficiency would produce weak sound when used with portable music players."
_
"Just got these delivered today and they are amazing big yet surprisingly comfy onoy real complaint is that the music leaks out so who ever is around you will know what you are listening too."
_
"Complaints about others hearing your music must mean those complainers have their music way too loud."
_
"Its the kind of bass that make bassheads smile, problem is that the music leaks so everyone can hear what you're listening to, the sound quality is very good but its not as clear as I want it to be, I had a pair of Street by 50 over ear wired and its everything I wanted in terms of clarity and bass, and the jvc sorta lacks in that respect, but all in all its great set of cans for the price!"
_
"A perfect headset for those who love loud, bass-driven music."
_
"Horns and strings are nicely present in the music when using these headphones, but the bass really thumps and can be overwhelming."
_
"I was curious to see if these headphones could produce any meaningful volume level when used with portable music players, such as my iPOD Classic(originally intended for use with tiny earbuds) or my Sony Minidisc portable(originally intended for use with small earphones)."
_
"Use the HAM55X headphones with the type of equipment and the types of music that they were clearly intended for and you won't go wrong."
_
"I was bassing with A$AP mob's Work in a quiet office with these and a Samsung Galaxy 5 Player turned up a little passed comfortable levels and no one could hear the music, even someone sitting directly next to me at my desk."

Quality

Quality:
"great sound quality especially the base but they might be a little hard to wear depending on the size of your head... ( just sayin )"
_
"Its the kind of bass that make bassheads smile, problem is that the music leaks so everyone can hear what you're listening to, the sound quality is very good but its not as clear as I want it to be, I had a pair of Street by 50 over ear wired and its everything I wanted in terms of clarity and bass, and the jvc sorta lacks in that respect, but all in all its great set of cans for the price!"
_
"I don't listen to much outside of the electronic hip-hop genre so I am somewhat bass-biased :]I have used the following headphones: RP-HTF600, ATH-M50, Sennheiser HD 25-1 ii, VModa M80, Denon D1100, RP-DH1200.From the headphones I have tried so far, this is how I would order them based on sub-bass (8hz -70hz) quantity:D1100 > HD 25-1 ii > RP-HTF600 > ATH-M50 > HAM55X > RP-DH1200That said, the D1100 and HTF600 had TERRIBLE build quality."
_
"The dynamic range and sensitivity is amazing, I challenge other brands to come close to the sound quality at this price."
_
"Construction quality was very good and the ear pads were comfortable."
_
"A nice buy for under $32, just based on sound quality and comfort."
_
"Amazing sound quality, but sound leaks like crazy, I could hear what's being played on them from another room."
_
"I played an MP3 that I knew was good quality, and I was like, hmmm well these are okay..."
_

Sound

Sound:
"My biggest beef is the over powering boomy bass that dominated the sound, with recessed mids and highs further degrading the musical enjoyment."
_
"I've had a jvc mini stereo system since I was a kid, to this day it still sounds amazing, when I got these I was disappointed, sure they're lightweight and comfortable but the sound seems slightly better than a ten dollar pair of headphones, wish I hadn't bought these and spent a little more to get something better"
_
"Those phones will provide more natural, detailed sound, but their lower efficiency would produce weak sound when used with portable music players."
_
"The only thing that I dislike is the fact the sound isolation is terrible But I understand thats because of the bass ports."
_
"Beautiful sound picks up the lowest bass tones and smoothly the highs plus it bangs."
_
"A nice buy for under $32, just based on sound quality and comfort."
_
"Amazing sound!"
_
"See i really have no complaints about the sound great if you love bass but the bass dosnt over power the other parts there very powerful actually like a movie theater if u like that kinda thing but I've had like 3 pairs of these headphones and every single time the freaking cord shorts out after like 3 mouths or even less and i can't see paying whats now 60 DOLLARS!"
_
"Amazing sound quality, but sound leaks like crazy, I could hear what's being played on them from another room."
