    "i work in a small office space with a bunch of sh-t bags and cackling hens. i just tried these out for the first time today and they work extremely well. i use the soft mummer app and it completely drowns out all of the awful people i work with and every other annoying sound. these idiots all have their own little usb speakers and radios all listening to different stations, talking about inane things that i am unable to ignore. i am very sensitive to sound and very crotchety for my age. i had to try something and these are working out well so far. they work so well that i had to set a visual alert on my phone which is literally inches away so i know when its ringing. i'm not sure on the battery life as of yet but i'd gladly pay for one AAA battery every so often if it means i don't have to listen with these morons anymore.

    "Looking and comparing spec wise to other under 50$ closed backed headphones, they are clearly a notch above the rest. They also offer volume control and a microphone so you can also have easy access to those things."

    "These headphones are the worst. They do cancel noise, but only because the lowest volume setting on them is high enough to make you go deaf."

    "Bought these for use when I'm on the road as they are advertised as being light and durable. Used them for a few weeks and I really could feel the difference in the weight compared to my Logitech headset at home. Regretfully, the durability wasn't as good as these broke before the first month was through. At first I was pretty upset about it but, upon contacting Monodeal, they sent me a brand new headset for free! These ones seem t be a lot more durability than my old pair. Not sure why but maybe it was some sort of defect. Very happy customer now. Excellent customer services goes a long ways and I'm a customer for life now!"

    "You may have never heard of Edifier like myself, but I have to tell you about these awesome headphones. They sound amazing and best of all, they are under $50. What a steal these headphones are. The one thing that I was most concerned with when purchasing them was the sound and the comfort. I have to say I am impressed in both areas. Give these affordable headphones a chance and you won't be disappointed."
