    I'm not a big head phone user but wanting a pair for occasional use I thought I would give these a shot when they appeared on a lightening deal.

    The build quality is superb, I was very impressed with how they arrived in their own compact case and as I handled them I became even more convinced that I had found a genuine bargain.

    The thing that mainly prevented me wearing headphones in the past was that they gave me a headache. I wasn't sure why, maybe the tightness or fit, maybe the sound and tone of only ever using cheap sets.

    I tried these using my iPad as a source (I have an app to play FLAC via Dropbox) and they were amazing, as soon as I cupped them over my ears I knew they were going to be better than previous experiences.

    Now I'm not an audio expert but I'm not someone who goes for an all in one system either, I remember buying my first Marantz CD Player, deliberating over Denon and Rotel, my Dual record Deck and I remember wishing I could afford a Nakamachi Dragon and I prefer the superior sound of vinyl on my jukebox than listening to a CD.

    The sound quality is superb, bass is firm but not over powering the tone crisp and I actually heard more detail using them than I ever though would be possible.

    I got these for £49 on a lightening deal, they are easily worth the RRP and I would not hesitate in buying them again.

    I read a lot of online reviews about these headphone before buying. I then went ahead and brought them. I have to say these are the best headphones I have every owned.

    Positives:
    -------------
    - Superb sound quality - the best I have every experienced.
    - Foldable
    - Hard case to protect headphones when not in use. Ideal for travelling.
    - Excellent price
    - Comfortable on ears and head - I can wear these for hours on end and not experience and discomfort. I cannot say the same for other headphones I own, even more expensive ones.
    - Detachable cord
    - Excellent with all types of music

    Cons:
    -------
    - The over ear pieces are a little too small for my ears and I don't have big ears.

    Recommend:
    -----------------
    Yes, yes, yes! You will not be disappointed. These will change your music experience no end, especially if you are still using the earphones provided with your smartphone.

    This the longest I've ever had a pair of headphones. They are tough, flexible, have good sound quality and are very light. If you have a bigger head like me you may have issues with sizing. I've tossed this in my bag, thrown them around the house and abused them in every way and they still keep working just like new. They have a classic understated design which I like and the cable, oh my the cable, while they may look thin and cheap they will hold out strong no matter how hard your pulling. I've caught the cable on door handles, bags, other people and zipper pockets. No sign of wear whatsoever! I've had them a year and a half! Plus you get the best carry case I've ever seen with headphones and 2 yes 2 cables! If you wanted good, light and durable headphones with a classic design. Pick these up right now I can't recommend them anymore.

    Well, I gave it a few months before writing this. For 2 reasons really first, the first sound out of the box ins't usually the most accurate and secondly because I would like to put the headphones through its paces.

    Let me just say this... WOW! WOW and WOW!

    You won't get a better pair of headphones at this price, fact! If you're on the fence, buy them now before they're gone!

    Quality of construction: 9/10

    The good: The quality of the sound and on hear padding is excellent. The headphones are rugged and very comfortable and come with a convenient if somewhat hard to fit travel case. The cables supplied aren't tangle free but are rugged and detachable. The connection is AKG proprietary though so you will need AKG cables. I've pulled mine a few times and they're still performing great where other headphones would have probably failed. The bad: Some of the plastic used isn't great, especially in the branding area, is noisy however this isn't noticeable when listening.

    Sound Quality 11/10

    Are there better headphones, YES! Will you have to spend more to get them, YES! I don't think you can find a better set of travel headphones at this price. The sound is incredibly rich, bass is all there without being overpowering but all of the other detail isn't lost either. Admittedly I'm not an audiophile but having worked in a radio setup for years I've used tons of top of the range headphones and have been around audio a while. These guys will blow your mind away.

    Out of the box sound is excellent but it gets even better with use. You'll be listening to a lot more music!

    I'll say it again, if you're thinking about it.... hit the buy with one click, you won't regret it and will thank me for it!

    I don't normally write reviews... these made me do it!
