Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"There are a few drawbacks, mostly in the fixed cable and the lack of power to the headphone's speakers."
_
"The audio quality is awesome, I wish it wasn't so tight around my ears, and the cord could be a bit longer, but for the price, its well worth it."
_
"PROS:++ In-line remote includes a built-in mic, and volume playback controls++ Available in a variety of colors for the fashion conscious++ Memory foam ear cushions provide a more custom fit than alternatives++ Collapsible for portability and easy storage++ Average sound quality compared to other mid-range budget headphones++ One-sided cable is a nice feature++ OK noise isolation for non-noise cancelling headphonesCONS:-- Canvas material has a cheap look that raises durability concerns-- The stitching that is added for visual appeal is nothing more than a painted on decal, instead of real contrast stitching; over time it will rub off-- Hard-wired cable prevents upgrade or replacement if it breaks-- Sheathed cable can distort music when walking-- L-shape plug is more prone to failure-- Deep bass sound is imbalanced and oversold-- Low sound efficiency requires higher volume on your devices for the same sound output you would get with other headphones-- No included accessories, like a case or cable winder-- The list price is high given the materialsCONCLUSIONThese are worth considering but I would not recommend them."
_
"Much nicer than plastic cables or hard molded plastic."
_

Fit

Fit:
"They sound and look great but they don't fit well at all, they're so uncomfortable I can't wear them for a long period of time because they squeeze my head and give me a headache."
_
"There's very little adjustment possible, and the smallish earcups combine with the heavily sprung headband to make the fit potentially uncomfortable even despite the nice cushy foam padding."
_
"Other notes:Will work with an android phone, can use as a headset with the phone mic to make calls (cord button functions as a mute button).Not having a built-in microphone is a huge drawback for headphones too big to fit in your pocket."
_
"The fit is a little snug, and after a half-hour or so become uncomfortable."
_
"There's very little adjustment possible, and the smallish earcups combine with the heavily sprung headband to make the fit potentially uncomfortable even despite the nice cushy foam padding."

_
"They are on the small side, but they fit comfortably, with plenty of cushioning and just the right amount of tension."
_
"The fit is very good as well but the outstanding craftmanship and materials are what has really blown me away."
_
"The snug fit means that these are great for noise cancelling and that every single sound is going in your ear - so if you don't like your music to pound in your head, these are not for you."

"The deluxe ear cups are meant for excellent noise isolation - they keep your audio in, and external sounds out."
_
"Don't be fooled -- these still deliver rich audio and are very effective at reducing outside noise."
_
"The sound produced by these headphones is pretty good at medium volume provided that you like a lot of bass, and the cans do a good job of keeping the noise out, possibly at the expense of fitting a bit tight."

_
"With my iPod the bass really hits the spot, incredible sound but with my Galaxy Note I and Kinda HD the sound is great as well.. - The sound is intense and the bass and treble is awesome- The only negative is they are take a little getting used too.. Feel big and bulky at first but they are very soft and the sound distracts you from how they feel..."
