Pros:sleek, modern, attractive, sturdy, portable, good balance, good bass, good sound isolation.

Cons:Band can look goofy if you don't bend the wire a bit.Shiny cans attract fingerprints.

The Bottom Line: These are great headphones for a good price, and I would recommend them to anyone.


I had been eyeing these for a while - my beloved Sennheisers were stolen a few months ago, and due to financial issues, I was resigned to using some crappy cheap earbuds.  Finally able to spare a bit and I grabbed these up.
First impression?  These are beautiful.  They are smaller than you'd expect.  The band is a soft rubber - it's flexible and comfortable, but sturdy.  The cans are shiny aluminum with brushed metal sides, and the earpieces are a comfy black pleather.  They feel durable and well made.  The cans turn so that they fold flat and fit in the included velour pouch.  They also come with a small cloth to polish the cans - a nice touch.  
They fit securely on the head.  My one complaint is that out of the box, the wire attaching the can to the band is angled such that the sides of the band stick out from the sides of your head an unneccessary amount.  This is a small complaint, though, and it is easily remedied by carefully bending the wire to make the band fit closer to the head.  
I was surprised at how small the cans are, but for me it was a pleasant surprise.  They are small enough that on most people, they will sit on the ears instead of around them, which could be a concern for some people. My ears are tiny, though, and so these actually end up around my ears.  I find them to be very comfortable.  They sit securely on my head, but they aren't too tight.  
More importantly, these sound great.  Out of the box, they sounded good - nice and clear and pretty balanced.  Over time, they get even better as the bass tightens up.  These have more bass than most portables I've heard, and I appreciate that.  The sound isolation is good, which is important to me because I often wear them on the bus and in public where people don't want to hear my music.  They block out a decent amount of outside noise, but not TOO much.  They sound great with both my iPod and my Macbook, and my iPod has no problem properly driving them.
Overall, I am very happy with these headphones and would recommend them to anyone who wants good sound without paying a small fortune and to people who enjoy the flashy, chic look these have.
