    "If you are already planning to spend $250 for a over ear headphone, Lola should be one of your last options. It is decent, high quality but over priced. You can definitely find better or cheaper ones in the market."

    "I wanted an inexpensive pair of headphones to listen to podcasts and watch movies when I'm on my computer and these fit the bill. The sound comes through crisply and they are comfortable for wearing over a short period of time. My ears do start to ache after more than a couple of hours of wearing them so that is something to consider. "
