"Great headphones that look great and sound better."4.5 starson by MrGadgetman
Pros: Frequency range, Clean highs, Great bass response, Build quality, Very comfortable, Single cord design.
Cons: [Nit-Pick ALERT] Cheesy storage pouch.
Summary: I went to Best Buy last month and sampled several headphones to go with my Archos 5 IMT because I wanted a good wired headset. I normally use Bluetooth Stereo. After 30 minutes of test-tuning various models I settled on the HD238s.
These headphones sound awesome! They have a broad frequency range and reproduce clean and clear highs. Some have knocked them for not having good bass but those folks must be hard to please. The bass from my set sounds great and have been able to handle any song I put through them..., playing clean and accurate lows. Lossless audio really helps these units shine.
These units are also very comfortable with their thick padding on the speakers and on the top bridge. Their articulated design let's them adjust to virtually anyone's head. The build quality seems high too, with metallic components here and there. They are lightweight considering their size, and have good formfactor especially with their anti-tangle single cord design, and you can also swap out the ear pads if they get dirty.
The 2 year warranty is also an awesome plus. I like a company that stands by their product.
