    5.0 out of 5 stars For me - perfect 2 Feb 2011
    Colour Name:Black
    Just to get this straight - yes, they are quite strongly bass-weighted. But a lot of people like that, myself included. I listen mostly to metal/rock, but also a lot of trance/club, and they pack a very satisfying thud. That's exactly what I wanted, in fact I returned an 85 pair of other top-brand headphones because their sound was too 'balanced' and lacked the bass that I craved.

    The mic makes the headphones a hundred times better still. I use it all the time with my iPhone 3GS. It and the headphones integrate perfectly with Spotify (I don't actually use iTunes) and all phone alert sounds. If you get a call, the music fades. After the call is ended it fades back in. One niggle I have is that now in winter, with gloved hands, it is a bit annoying to locate and press the central pause/play button. Another niggle is that the mic is at the height of the collar, so it ends up rubbing against the zipper on my jacket, which transmits loudly through the wire and into the headphones. But that's just my jacket I suppose..

    The build quality is very good. I have been using them heavily since November and nothing is coming apart yet. I love the fact that the cord detaches at the earphone - I have damaged headphones in the past by crouching, letting the wire go around my knee, and then standing up - rrrrrippp! So this is a safety release of a kind.

    Comfort-wise, I have worn these for 6+ hours straight. They are heavier and have a tighter grip than say the Sennheiser PX100s that I had before, so your ears feel a bit tender after 3-4 hours, but a small massage and they are fine, and you can keep listening. The ears get a tiny bit clammy but nothing to speak of really.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Re-hear your music 28 Sep 2010
    Colour Name:Black
    Well, where to begin? These headphones are simply fantastic. They have a slick & sleek form-factor that hugs your head without being oppressive, the ear pieces are extremely comfortable for an 'on-ear' type rather than 'over-ear' (if you're looking for 'over-ears', try the headphones one-up in the range - Monster Beats). They are light and surprisingly comfortable to wear.

    The folding design means that the headphones fold away neatly in their very own neoprene case, it's not a hassle to fold them up either, they pack-away with a reassuringly solid 'click'. The headphones also come with a branded anti-bacterial wipe to clean up any fingerprints on the glossy headband or - as mine is more frequently used - to polish up the screen on my iPod touch.

    This is where the real functionality begins; the ControlTalk lead has become one of the best-designed pieces of electronics I own. The cable detaches from the headphones and from the iPod, meaning it is very easy to put-away. The lead itself has an antitangle design, the cable inside is flat rather than the usual wrapped-cylinder and as a result the lead doesn't twist inside the insulation and you get far fewer knots. In fact you can throw this in the neoprene case with the headphones any which way you fancy and it still comes out without a knot or one ounce of fuss.

    The controls on the ControlTalk button are very slick; sitting 2-3 inches below the left earpiece, they are discreet but always within reach (never disappearing into the depths of your jacket) and manage the essentials with great aplomb.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive! 19 Jun 2011
    By Steve
    Colour Name:White
    I bought these headphones about a month and a half ago and I must say that I am impressed with them. I went into various shops and stores to first-hand listen to the quality of the music and test out how my music sounded on the headphones. I bought them from HMV eventually for alot more than the price shown here, but I did wish to try them out in a shop before deciding to buy them without even testing a pair.

    After a couple of hours listening to music the headphones start to 'get used to' the type of music you listen to and the quality in the headphones start to increase dramatically. The bass starts getting stronger and each song sounds completely different to the next, in terms of the sounds heard.

    In conlcusion, if you have the spare money then buy these headphones! But if you want stronger bass and even louder, intricately developed music I suggest you buy the Studio ones!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money 24 Jun 2011
    By Mark
    Colour Name:Red
    After deciding that I wanted a new pair of on-ear headphones, I started to look into the 100's of different models available, before finally settling on these.
    They come well packaged, with a separate carry case, which the headphones neatly fold into when you're not using them. You also get two interchangeable cables as well. One is a a plain cable with an auxiliary plug in at each end, the other has the Control/talk piece enabled for Smartphone and MP3 compatiable devices.
    The headphones themselves are some what stylish compared to other makes and the colour of this particular model do make them stand out a lot. They are very comfy to wear and after wearing them for 3 hours straight whilst working, I did not have any symptoms of headaches or ear fatigue, which I have suffered when using other people's on-ear headphones.
    The sound quality of these headphones is superb. The sound is crisp and clear with a wide range through the bass, mids and trebles. It doesn't sound flat or tinny, which I experienced with the Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones. For a comparison, I own a set of Bowers & Wilkins Zepplin speakers and listening to this new pair of Headphones sounds like I am listening to my Zepplin speakers, the sound quality is that good. Songs that through some headphones and speakers sound blurry, due to the complex mix of music, on these headphones sound clear. You can hear each instrument perfectly, even in the bass tones. The noise cancellation is very good as well. Even at low volume in noisy environments, you can hear the headphones over background noise.
    I am very happy that I chose these headphones, and they are well worth the price tag.
