_
"if you have a big head good luck lol(its gone be a tight fit."

Headphone

Headphone:
"Because I am trying to replace somebody else's headphones (because I broke them), I've gone out of my way to find a source of the exact same model."
_
"The most uncomfortable and ill-fitting headphones I have ever owned."
_
"I picked these specific headphones because I have a few ear piercings that can make certain headphones uncomfortable."
_
"I am not an audio person, and I don't know how to explain the headphone's problems in a technical way."
_
"FitAgain, the headphones are a major failure in this regard."
_
"I bought these headphones a week ago, and they broke within 3 days."
_
"If you have a smallish head and small ears and can't find well-fitting headphones, I'd recommend these."
_
"Quality of these headphones is amazing, although people around you might get disturbed, as lot of sound leaks out of these headphones."
_
"Furthermore, the headphones themselves are a thing of beauty, just like everyone on forums said, they're souped up koss portapro's, better insulation and better sound quality with a firmer frame, best headphones purchase in quite a while."
_
"I've had these headphones for about two months now, and I'm still enjoying them so far."
_
"So these headphones have durability going for them as well."

Price

Price:
"I'm sure there are some audiophiles out there who would disparage the sound quality of these headphones compared to their home audio setups that run in the thousands of dollars, but based on their original $50 price, you couldn't pray for such excellent sound quality."
_
"Quite disappointing because they had decent sound for the price."
_
"So, I was disappointed, and didn't want to spend money on new headphones, but didn't want to have to keep replacing the UR40."
_
"But their cheap price and good quality at least makes them easily replaceable."
_
"Even the 19.99 price here is well worth it."
_
"When it comes to speakers and headphones it falls down to .individual taste so I will not go into the usual specification and stat's that many reviews cover other than to state for the money you get a great sound reproduction and a well build product.+"
_
"The song started and the first thing I noticed was that the vocals sounded clear, and less like they came from a cheap speaker (which up to that point I assumed was an effect the artist was going for)."
