perfectly fine for me,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd spent some time researching and prodding around various headphones (this was my first purchase of such an item), with couple key requirements - must drown out noisy neighbours thumping about, door slamming and kids shouting, must have reasonable length cable, and must be at least reasonable quality / sensibly thought of design.
I'm very pleased with them (i've waited a few months before writing a review so I could properly settle into them and the experience than rush out an uninformed one as some people do on the day of receiving the items).
The sound quality exceeds the tv nicely, and as you'd perhaps expect, adds substantially to the gaming experience - as just one example - to track the sources of sounds in the game whether friend, foe, or 'other' very precisely! I'm not the type to pretentiously describe the crispness of the sound to the nth degree, but realistically, for most people this would seem perfectly fine - your own hearing is probably more of a limiting factor.
The cable is the right length to lounge away from the tv, without tripping or tugging the plug out. I would be inclined to agree with others that the cable diameter would be better, say PS controller cable thick, compared to Ipod earphones thin, as you may have the paranoia of this being a vulnerable weak point if you get overexcited or something and put some strain on the lead, depending on what sort of antics you're getting upto I guess?
The padding is good, the over the ears design comfortable for hours of use at a time if needed as these are pretty light too.
You can pay more and probably get a little more (so probably not at a favourable price / benefit ratio), but I personally don't see the need to. You can pay less and get a little less, but I'd be wary of shorter cables, comfort and the lower sound quality compromise risks. These seem the Goldilocks of headphones for me - ah, just right.

At least you are starting off well. Soon you may want to try out open-backed headphones; better for when nobody else is around, but open-back does give brighter and more 'open' sound. Anyway - welcome into the World of Quality Headphones! ;-)
