Pros:great sound, clear, good bass, great mid/upper
Cons:foam pads are only good for about 2 years' wear
I was trying nearly every headphones I could find, to replace the wretchedly painful earbuds that came with my iPod. I finally tried these, despite being *sure* that they couldn't be any good. Not at under $20.
Hey, turns out my cynical attitude was misplaced. The sound on this is great. It's not like using my closed-ear Sony studio cans, but then again, they're about 1/100th the size and weight.
The one caveat I have is that (at least for me) if you don't wet the plugs, they won't stay in.
