    "I've never had a need for serious audio equipment. I know there is a difference to people who know better, but I'd rather just spend ten bucks and spend more money at Red Lobster."

    "These are OK DJ head phones. They have great sound but they are not at all comfortable, and if you're wearing them for long periods of time, expect a headache."

    "This is a great set of headphones that rival some of my more expensive music headphones. Not too expensive, very durable, comes with a convenient hard case and additional headphone cable. Great bass, mids and highs that make them terrific for gaming, music or wanting to get some peace and quiet."

    "I wouldn't recommend this. Sound quality is okay but nothing great, definitely not good for DJing, at least for me. Not that comfortable to wear either. I guess you get what you pay for but I'd suggest saving up for something better."

    "I absolutely love the look of these headphones. They look so sleek and cushioning around the ear pieces. They look as though they are heavy duty and will serve the purpose intended. The reviews are wonderful as well. They are on the higher end of pricing, but def good quality. I am slightly picky with how ear headphones are supposed to be and these look exactly like what I am looking for."
