Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The cord between the headphones and your music device is thin and flimsy feeling."
_
"I tried new batteries, I tried a new cable, and the right channel is dead."
_
"I love the case and the lengthy, removable cord."
_
"The cord is actually kind of nice-- it feels like it may be more resilient than the standard rubbery thing you normally get, and the fact that it is detachable can come in handy if something yanks on the cord unexpectedly."
_
"SummaryWhat I liked- I liked that the headphones dont have a permanently attached cable and so you can wear the headphones on a flight for example without listening to music or having an unnecessary cable dangling from one side."
_
"The cord is nice and long, which is great for reaching my Mac Pro sitting on the ground (most of my other headphones have cords that are too short for this)."
_
"Unlike cheap headphone cables, it doesn't seem to kink easily or get hung up on things."

Music

Music:
"The cord between the headphones and your music device is thin and flimsy feeling."
_
"Also, the sound quality of what you're listening to - music; movies - is just ok, not great."
_
"Unfortunately, the sound quality of music is mediocre."
_
"It's not noticeable when music is playing, but quite annoying between songs and it's there whether the ANC is turned on or off."
_
"The normal mode is very flat and boring - it just doesn't make your music pop like some good headphones do."
_
"I listened to classical, pop, and some techno music on Pandora with my iPhone, as well as to several iTunes songs that I had."
_
"They are comfortable enough for several hours worth of music listening, although all over-the-ear headphones that I had ever tested felt uncomfortably hot on my ears after two to three hours."
_
"SoundI listened to a variety of music with the headphones in the amplified mode and I was able to achieve a full, rich sound."
_
"The range sounded good, but classical music was not as crisp as I would like."
