Overall, a pain in the butt to use

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Lightweight, long cord, replaceable parts

Cons:Flimsy feel, bottom-heavy

The Bottom Line: These headphones may be a pretty decent choice as a second pair, especially for travel, but not as your main headphones. Too many negatives for the price.


The best feature about these headphones is that it's very lightweight and the material its made of, including the cord, appears to be indestructible.

The headphones produces a full bottom but it's a little too boomy for my taste and the mids stand out a little too much as well.

The modular construction is a nice feature but unfortunately it also gives the headphones a really flimsy feel. The earphones pivots around the headband 360 degrees which can be really annoying if you have to have to pull them off your head off and on frequently.

What I find most annoying is the cord design and the cord itself. The split-Y design (a separate left and right channel wire) at times can feel like a noose around your neck especially when it gets tangled up. Also the tension of the plastic band is tight and the headphones feels uncomfortable around your ears after an hour or so.

Even more annoying is the noise from the cord from rubbing against your skin or clothes. I never experienced this problem with headphones in this class. It becomes really bothersome during soft music or working or moving about when the music is shut off temporarily.

These headphones may be a pretty decent choice as a second pair, especially for travel, but not as your main headphones. Too many negatives for the price.
