Despite some of the average comments here I have to say that I am not disappointed with these Creative headphones. The muffs are spongy enough to be comfortable on your ears without being too thick and cumbersome, the sound is punchy and clear, the volume control on the wire eliminates the need to keep lighting up your media player, and the adjustable sizes inside the band mean that they fit perfect on my large skull without being too tight or falling off. The muffs can be rotated easily when wearing them around your neck so you don't choke. I personally have no problems with these headphones. I am more inclined to use earphones myself, but for a more immersive experience the MA2600 model is worth it.

▣ Style, Build & comfort ▣
These are quite nice looking headphones. They're mostly made of plastic, with the headband wrapped in soft faux leather. Build quality isn't great, but sufficient; however, the left ear on mine squeaks which is very annoying. The ear pads are flat, made of soft faux leather and feel comfortable when worn; although, my ears tend to ache and get quite warm after a only a short while. They seal outside noise fairly well and noise leakage is minimal. The ear cups swivel flat, so can be rested on your chest easily when around your neck. They don't fold and do not include a storage pouch, which is disappointing considering they're marketed as a mobile headset. The flat cord includes an inline microphone/phone controls and seems to be good quality, but it's not removable, which is another negative. In a similar price range, I find the Noontec Zoro HD are a better constructed headphone and a much better portable headphone, because they fold down nicely to fit into the include storage pouch, they also have a removable flat cord.
▣ Audio ▣
In terms of sound quality, the Creative Hitz MA2600's sound OK (better than the smaller MA2300, which are poor), but they're very bass emphasised, which extends well, but it's quite boomy, loose and uncontrolled, somewhat slightly muffling the mids. Highs are also rolled off. If you're a fan of bass heavy, warm sound, you may be happy with these, but I personally prefer a more neutral sound signature. In comparison, the Noontec Zoro HD is a considerably better sounding headphone. They're more balanced and neutral, clearer and have lovely controlled bass, that extents nice and deep, but doesn't interfere with the mid range. Even Creative's own Aurvana Live have better balanced sound than these Hitz MA2600.
▣ Conclusion ▣
The Creative Hitz MA2600 are OK, but they're difficult to recommend against the likes of the similarly priced, substantially better sounding and more portable Noontec Zoro (both Pro & HD versions). Creative were off to a good start sonically with the Aurvana Live and I'm surprised they didn't just improve on the design of those.
They're not a company I know huge lot about and so my expectations where quite low when I got these for review. I wasn't entirely wrong - but they did perform better than expected.
I found them comfy to to wear and the sound was good but not great. I liked the design of the headband but wasn't too keen on the look of the cups. I thought they looked particularly cheap and plasticky. On the whole I liked the look of them a lot but the cups just let them down in my opinion. The cups swivelled too which I like, meaning they're kept out the way when hung round your neck.
But it the sound that's important I guess, and as I said I thought the sound was good. However, I'm still not sure it's good enough if I was spending my own money. The price seems a little steep for what you get overall. I like the inline remote control though. I found them a completely acceptable but not really magnificent pair of head phones which are, perhaps, a tad overpriced.
The ear cups are comfy, too; this is probably (in part) because of the noise cancelling aspect of them. This seems to work well. My only reservation being that it can't be great from a safety point of view.
How do they sound? Well, they're pretty good. But I'd really expect that at this price. They're not, by any stretch, the most expensive you'd see, but they aren't an impulse buy either. The bass is certainly good, which gives your music some oomph. The only problem is, I don't think they are quite good enough to have the rest of the sound really match the bass. It doesn't quite swamp it out, but the midrange is certainly struggling. I tend to find that with these kind of things, though. Doesn't always matter and you're probably not buying these for audiophile reasons, but worth keeping in mind.
So, recommended, but they aren't the best you'll ever get.
