"Great Design, Disappointing Sound"3.0 starson by suburbanite1
Pros: Earpieces give excellent fit- deep enough to completely enclose ear
Secure fit- easy to move around while wearing these
Detachable cable- can replace damaged cable, replace with longer cable or cable with Ipod controls; removing cable makes
Cons: Weak Bass which is usually too isolated
Not worth $150
Summary: The feel is somewhere between a full-sized set of studio headphones which feel like they won't stay in place if you move your head too quickly and a set of earpad sport headphones. These feel like they're glued to your head. That, together with the single 4' cord, makes these good for portable music player use and light physical activity.
These also pack very well as their earpieces rotate to allow the whole unit to store flat. These come with a storage sack as well. Just be careful to not crush them their construction feels like it sacrifices some durability for lightness.
These should fit anyone as the headband is width-adjustable- just like any headphones- but also, the earpads swivel along a vertical axis.
These overall the lightest, securest-feeling circumaural headphones I've ever worn. Unfortunately, the good news stops there.
The sound is badly lacking in bass, fullness, body, richness or whatever you want to call it. The sound is remarkably very clear but the bass is too little and often too isolated rather than giving body to the sound as whole. My NWZ-A865 Sony Walkman has an equalizer with a bass-boost feature but even that doesn't seem to produce the fullness that the Walkman's OEM earbuds can.
Their bass shortcoming is why I feel these don't warrant their $150 price tag. More like $100. It's a pity because I think the design is excellent.
