Pros absolutely wonderful. For $70, I don't think there's a better deal out there. Rich, full sound, great bass, and wonderful for use with an iPod. Puts earbuds to shame!
Cons Slightly lacking in higher-end sounds, open so everyone in your vicinity will enjoy your music too, a little uncomfortable after multiple hours of listening.
Summary These are wonderful headphones all-around. The cons aren't even that big of a deal to me. Especially for portable devices, if you want good over-the-ear headphones for a great value, this is it. As the official review said, these are way more efficient than earbuds (and cheaper headphones) so you get louder volumes AND better sound quality.
Pros I love 'em. From the 1940s gunner styling to the big thick cord that I clip to the headphones with my Shuffle. Quite comfortable (although I rarely wear them for more than 4 hours at a stretch so commuters may have another story).
Cons No complaints. Replacement pads (after 3 years I need a pair) aren't distributed well, but they do exist and my drivers are still beautimous.
Summary Wide-open fulfilling sound. So clear I had to upgrade my 128 kbps music to 192 kbps or more. Can't wait to hear the lossless Beatles tracks on them (until I upgrade my iPod I'm stuck with the 320kbps ones) I suppose I could plug it into my stereo... but I have higher quality sound without headphones. Am curious about the recently released SR-60i series... but am so happy with my 60s I don't expect to upgrade to them any time soon. I listen to a lot of pre-digital music on these, so I can't vouch for their techno/drumsnbass/emo/screamo performance, still, I think they'd still hold up pretty well. They sound great with dub reggae, so I'm pretty sure that the punch would be the same. I'm in hog heaven listening to Stax Records on them. There's something organic about them that just brings out the gritty soul. Not that they don't enhance Mozart or exotica. All around great headphones, that I haven't taken to the extreme because they make even simple musical experiences more fulfilling.
Pros Phonmonenal sound
Superior Build Quality
Comfortable to wear over long listening periods
Great Cost to Benefit Ratio
Cons Sticker Shock
Lack of Sound Isolation
Summary I was very happy with these headphones when I bought them. I think that they are the best headphones that I have owned, (and I have owned dozens of them).
The build quality is second to none, beating the Skullcandy headphones that I have owned. I liked the fact that they have more metal in them than plastic.
I was also happy that they are an american company making an american product. They are true audiophile headphones.
While the initial price was a little of a splurge, they were very worth it.
I just wish that I had them today.... :-(
Pros Superb sound quality across the spectrum.
Cord with plenty of length.
Cons Not the most comfortable for long periods.
Due to free spinning ear cups, cord could be easily twisted.
Summary Like the title says, I think these SR60's are an excellent value. They absolutely blow away the $40 Sony's I have. I mean not even close. It's like listening to an entirely different song with these on. Ok, maybe they're not super comfortable for long periods, and have styling and packaging circa 1974. However, in the "high end" headphone arena, these are almost unbeatable. And did I mention the great value? I can't over state the value, really. You could spend double or triple and not have as great a sound. Believe, I've been there.
I highly recommend these for anyone looking to not spend a fortune on a great set of headphones. Sure, if you a grand to blow on headphones, you could find better. But me, I set my limit at $100 and wasn't disappointed. Believe me, you won't be either.
Pros Good bass, clear, full sound
Cons An iPod at high volumes can ruin them.
Summary These are good headphones, great if you never want to listen to music louder than your mother would like. However, I found that with an iPod you can cause a clicking to develop, along with a buzz. I never max out my iPod's volume, but at around 60%-80%, after about a week, I could hear a buzz on the left. A couple weeks later, after turning it down, I started to hear a clicking on the right. While many say these are good headphones for volume, my experience has told me otherwise. Still good, though, for quieter areas where you can listen to music at lover volumes.
Thanks for your submission!
