I bought these thinking that they were OVER EAR HEADPHONES but actually they are ON EAR HEADPHONES. They feel quite solid and well made but not for me. Also i just wanted a plain normal set of headphones but these have a handsfree box on them which means that the headphone jac has 3 zones on it instead of 2. This can be annoying as using them with a non handsfree device requires you to finddle with the jac to get a good stereo sound. I'm sure if you use them with the compatible device (ie kindle fire) they're just great.

I love them. Other people comment on them. They are great at cutting out external noise. I wore them as ear defenders on a 6 hour military transport flight and they were comfortable and effective. They cut out the noise well enough that I could listen to podcasts. If you are thinking if buying some, do it.

HASH(0x90599fe4) out of 5 stars Excellent Headphones 17 Mar. 2013
By Lynne Hersh - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Maple Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are attractive, comfortable headphones. The sound is crisp and clear. My first try was in a quiet house where the music came through loud and clear from my Kindle Fire. I then used them on an airplane. The engine noise was 80% blocked out which was fine for listening to a tv show I had on the Fire. I did not hear the flight attendant when she asked if I wanted a drink and I also did not hear any announcements from the flight crew or the pilot, I consider this to be positive. Happily I cannot report about crying children since there were none on my flight:) I was able to compare these headphones with my husband's new generation Bose and even he agreed that there is not a significant difference to justify spending hundreds more on Bose. Also, these look much better than the Bose. A case would be a nice addition but they traveled just fine in my tote bag.
UPDATE-I used these on transatlantic flights and had small children in the cabin both ways, I never heard them! These are great comfortable headphones. I watched tv shows and movies on the Fire and listened to music and watched movies through the airplane system, all great quality.

HASH(0x9059b21c) out of 5 stars Pleasant, stylish, but.... 22 Jan. 2013

Colour Name: Maple Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are beautifully designed to catch one's eyes, and they do that. And they're "nice enough" headphones, but I'm of mixed minds:

PROS

1) Attention-getting design, though I should mention that, to me, they don't have quite as 'classy' a look in person as they do on the web. The wood is lovely, but they use too much shine (think shellac) and there is a bit more shiny-chrome-looking plastic than I like. So they're pretty, but I think they would have looked better with a bit less shine. To be fair, I think the high gloss was a design choice - it doesn't look as though it was just cheaper to do it that way.

2) They are very lightweight, and yet still block outside sound very effectively. To me, they look much 'bulkier' on the web than they are.

3) The cord is slender, and very nicely braided-looking. It's also on the short side so if you have the device near you, you'll be fine.

4) They have a lot more bass than you'd expect looking at them.

5) They are advertised as Kindle Fire headphones, but they also work perfectly with any 1/8" stereo jack.

CONS

1) The sound is nice, and not bad, but they are definitely bass-heavy.

2) Sound-for-price: As I write this, amazon is selling them for about $120 and for that money you can get some nice near-audiophile headphones. (For instance, the Audio Technica ATH-AD700's are only $20 more and while they are bulky, they don't weigh much more. I think that anyone purchasing these knows that part of the price is the styling.

3) The cord is slender and on the short side. This is both a pro and a con depending on your habits. If you're using your player (whatever it may be) in public then the lack of a long cord is a good thing. I like to lie in bed and let the tablet rest on the bed while listening to the music and I like more room for movement. But this is just a preference, and it's about 3 feet from the plug to the split at the neck.

4) I find that they press a little harder than I'd like against my ears, but then I have a slightly wider than average head, and also I'm used to open-air headphones that don't try to block outside noise and usually aren't as tight.

5) They aren't as 'efficient' as some competing headphones and on some music I wish they'd get just a bit louder. They're find for music (like most current pop/rock) that is recorded loudly, but slightly older music that wasn't requires slightly more oomph than these provide.

HASH(0x9059b84c) out of 5 stars substantial feel, good bass 19 April 2013

Colour Name: Maple Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are better than most headphones I've tried. I have a good pair of Sennheisers for music from the audio system and while these are almost, but not quite, as transparent, they fit better than the expensive pair! They are better than the high-end Sony's I had been using with my Fire HD. Very nice and very, very attractive. The wood is very well done and looks and feels rich.

HASH(0x9059b588) out of 5 stars Comfort ~ Looks ~ Sound, Tribeca hit the mark on all 3 with these 25 Jan. 2013
By Angela - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Maple Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
After listening to music through these Tribeca headphones for the last few days, I've discovered the beautiful wood accents are just a small part of what I like about them. At first glance I wasn't sure how comfortable they would be with the metal frame. As it turns out, these are by far the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned. They are light weight, yet designed very solid. I own a pair of Diesel Vektr by Monster On-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk that cost twice as much as these Tribeca headphones, and these are far more comfortable. My others headphones all press down on a certain point on my head that eventually causes enough discomfort that I need to take them off. These are the first pair I've owned that don't do that, and I love it! I can finally wear headphones for as long as I want to and them not get uncomfortable.

The ear cushions ample in size and are also much more comfortable than my Diesel Vektrs. I always wear them while also wearing my large silver hoop earrings and I don't feel any discomfort. The sound is great when listening to blues, rock, R&B and even classical. I haven't found a type of music yet that doesn't sound good through them. These are a bit heavier on the base than my Diesel Vektrs. If I had to say which on had better sound, the Diesel ones would win that contest, but just barely....and again, at twice the cost.

The cord is covered in a woven nylon which is great for not tangling and makes it more resistant to damage to the inner wires. There is a start/stop music button also located on the headsets wire that DOES work with the Apple iPhone. While these are said to be designed for use with the Kindle and I do have a Kindle Fire (first generation) and use these with it, I have been using them more with my iPhone 4s and they work just as well with it.

While the wood accents on these headphones is what grabs your attention, the comfort and sound is what will keep you coming back to them. After adding these to my headphone collection, these are now the ones I always reach for. I absolutely love them!

HASH(0x9059b81c) out of 5 stars Just .... wow oh wow oh wow oh wow 24 Jan. 2013
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Maple Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If my title suggests that you are about to hear a rave about these headphones ... you got it in one. Let's start with some general comments:

1. One common problem I find with headphones and earbuds is that they break down with some distortion at higher volume levels. With the volume as loud as I could take it with these, they were perfectly crisp and accurate.
2. Let's revisit part of note #1. The sound in these is "perfectly crisp and accurate".
3. The high notes are the best I've ever heard. They really don't sound any different to me than my several hundred dollar set of Infiniti towers. Amazingly sharp sound.
4. But what about the bass? You never get great bass out of headphones, right? Wrong. I was literally stunned by the bass coming out of these headphones. It has depth AND resonance. You'll actually feel like strings from a "real bass" and a bass guitar are vibrating you. Drums sound like drums, not some little tap tap tap sound in the background.
5. The left and right separation actually sounds better than what comes out of my expensive 7.2 receiver and tower speakers.
6. Sounds seem to come from all around you, not just out of the speakers by your ears. I could swear I was hearing instruments from a few feet behind my head when I played some top notch jazz.
7. Voices are clear and accurate in pop songs.
8. Background music achieves a real presense that you absolutely will not hear from a radio or lesser headphones.

I've always been a bit leery of spending very much cash on little speakers to put right next to my ear. I now know better, as long as the correct product is involved. I listened to a lot of varied styles of music in all ranges before writing this review, and I never heard the slightest hint of distortion.

Let me give you some samples:

One of my favorite tests for speakers is the end of Charles Dutoit conducting the Montreal Symphony in the 1812 Overture. The reason? The symphony coordinated with city churches (for the bells) and Canadian naval vessels in the river (for the cannon). With most headsets you can barely hear the cannon, and the bells are just there. With these, the cannon, while not feeling like they were shaking the room, were a solid presence in the presentation. The bells had actual vibration in the sound and the feel. The orchestra itself sounded perfect.

Another set of music that impressed me were the jazz numbers on my "77 Sunset Strip" album. This album is not music that actually aired on TV, but music recorded in the studio based on arrangements from the theme and other mood music from the show. The snapping fingers in the traditional opening arrangement gave me chills. Of course, this music was recorded by a top notch jazz ensemble, so as mentioned above the bass and the bass guitar sounded like they were in the room with me.

I played a few tunes from the "Wings Over America" live album. The crowd cheers rolled out of the background and into the forefront of the sound as if I was sitting near the staqe.

I demoed a piece of music to my wife on another nice set of headphones, then played it again for her with these. Her eyes lit up. She looked up at me and said, "Oh, these are waaaaay better!"

The headset also looks nice, with its attractive wood grain covers. This is a minor point compared to the quality of the music, but is certainly a nice perk.

If I could give this product 10 stars, I literally would. This is unquestionably one of the very best Vine products I've ever had the pleasure to sample, and of course it gets my absolutely highest recommendation!
