"Good sound and volume, heavy duty cord that is apparently replaceable (it detaches from the headphones)."

_
"The ear phone is round compared to my son's that is oblong..(like the shape of an ear) So it doesn't hug your ear or fit as well hence, the sound suffers but I like the sleeker style, less bulk with cord and for the money it serves my purpose (walking) well."
_
"My pair came with a mic on the cord which works well with my iPhone 5c"

_
"Good sound and volume, heavy duty cord that is apparently replaceable (it detaches from the headphones)."

"Skull candy out of the box just worked and worked well they are a wee heavy but the interchangeable cord and a good player more than negate the weight (android I use power amp ) Apple well just the stock but with a few tweaks(player with an eq) to tame the bass or crank it up these headphones well out pace the Beats and all aforementioned."
_
"Sound great but it is very heavy and uncomfortable."
_

Listening

Listening:
"This is great if you are listening, not so great if you are trying to get someone's attention that has them on."
_
":::: Comfort ::::These headphones fit tightly, which I like overall, but combined with the on-ear design makes them somewhat uncomfortable for extended listening."
_
"Strong bass seems like it might exacerbate the issue for bespectacled folk like myself, though, since having the side parts of the frames pressed between one's ear and one's head does get uncomfortable after a bit, even while listening to tunes on the lighter side of things without heavy bass vibrations, although I admit to not having tested this while I had the headphones."
_
"It's still there but I personally love listening to the percussion especially when I'm listening to someone like Between the Buried and Me or the Faceless."
_
"She pulled up her Spotify and began listening, and the look on her face told me that I had done well."
_
"Also unlike decent headphones, EVERYONE around you can hear the music youre listening to almost as well as you can hear it yourself, so expect stares when youre wearing these."
_
"Because I'm Profoundly Deaf, which means it has to be @ a specific volume and my hearing aids amplify sound in a certain setting, so basically a person can hear what I'm listening to clear across the room."

_
"If I have any criticism on the sound, it would be in the mid-range which for most of the music I prefer (Alt Rock, Indie, Classical); it tends to be ideal."

"If you are a listener of classical music, these won't satisfy you."
_
"I have big ears, and they can get uncomfortable after too many hours of music or audiobooks."

Noise

Noise:
"Pros:Huge driversAmazing sound qualityRemovable line inBuilt to lastComfortablePassive noise cancelationCons:Headphones do not play nicely with glasses (they squeeze them)Makes you look like a CybermanDoes require a bit more power to run them because the drivers are quite largeOverall, I can't find a honest reason to gripe about them because there simply is nothing to gripe about."
_
"I had the volume turned up to a comfortable level and no one around me complained about the noise."
_
"Beware, however, that the noise canceling will make them deaf to you."
_
"The plastic is a bit cheap, and the noise isolation is not the best, but still good enough for the price."
_
"In that sense, they're good at cancelling out noise around you, but not good at keeping the sound from leaking out."
_
"ok i have sensitive hearing, i dont know about technical advise or anything but ill tell you my perspective as a regular person with good hearingnow i own a bose quite comfort 3 (thats a 350$ headphone FYI), i HATE THEM, the crush my ears, the dont make good sound, and the noise canceling cancels the MUSIC you listen to."

_

"I enjoy the sharp clarity,plenty songs (and Streamed Movies) sound perfect when the connection isn't buffering, I've even been able to doze off w o worrying whether they'd break, they're sturdy enough(Which isn't to say you can abuse them, but they're)I wasn't exactly pleased with the packagings condition when it arrived, the saving grace was that there was no scratch nor anything damaging to the product per se, I still find the bag it came with rather cool."
