Have owned these for a while now and have to say that I am really glad I bought these.
+ Sound Quality
= It's really hard to believe that they sound as good as they do for the price that they cost (I had a pair of Audio Technica Sonicfuel headphones prior to this which broke, but these sound far superior). The Acoustics in particular are a big plus point, sounds appear to be coming from all directions crystal clear. Have had to remove them a couple of times in public as I was convinced the sounds were actually coming from behind me! :)
+ Detachable Cable
= Again difficult to believe that headphones in this price bracket are able to offer a feature like this. Most headphones which have a detachable cable are priced around £50 or more. Having to throw away a pair of Headphones because of a faulty cable is never fun and having the option to attach a different cable will hopefully help increase the lifespan of your headphones. The headphones come with a long and thick cable over 3 meters and a thin cable which is about a meter. I use the long one on my PC and the short one for listening to music on my phone.
= Okay so they don't spin the full 180 degrees like a set of professional headphones do, but they do swivel 90 degrees, which is a plus point in my books. Keep in mind they are less than £20 and similarly priced headphones often don't have this (Sennheiser HD 201's also sound great but don't have much in the way of swivel for example). These headphones also fold into themselves for easy transport which is great.
= Despite being made out of cheap plastic, these things can really take a beating. I've dropped mine down a flight of stairs and watched agonizingly as they tumbled their way down banging against every step on the way. I was sure they would be broken but worked fine afterwards with no sign of damage. I've also been caught in a downpour with them on and had them soaked through but they still worked just fine afterwards.
= If you are looking for a set of trendy, fashionable headphones then you are looking at the wrong page. These don't just look cheap, but feel cheap also. This sort of thing doesn't concern me that much and I will gladly wear these in public, but I can imagine others would feel differently.
- Packaging + Accessories
= Hard to criticize this point too much. The cables are great, although I have my doubts that the shorter one will last me that long. The packaging has been done on the cheap, and I think they made the right decision. I don't want to be wasting my money on something that will likely end up in the recycling bin. My main grip is the lack of a bag to keep my headphones in. Luckily I have one from a previous brand I owned so just use that one instead.Sennheiser HD201 Closed Dynamic Stereo headphonesAudio Technica SonicFuel Headphones with Remote Control and Microphone
OVERALL : I have tried a few pairs in the budget price region, and these ones do the best job of emulating professional headphones out of them all. Would definitely recommend.
