    "I'm always trying out new headphones because for me it's not only about the sound quality and the value for the dollar but I have to have something that looks sleek, modern, and cool. The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x is a beauty. Not only does it look great but the performance is pretty good for the price. You can find this set for under a $100 bucks but this headset has some good features. I would say it is the perfect balance of sound quality. It has good bass and the middles and highs are pretty decent too, not bad sound clarity at all. So far it feels very durable and the materials seem top notch. I've been wearing these daily for my mixing and I'm always comfortable at the end of the night."

    "Comfortable and foldable earphones allow you to listen to your show/music without outside noise leaking in. Would be better if they were wireless"

    "The design on these is fantastic, if only the quality was as good. My pair broke after a week, for the money I would rather Skullcandy which has very comparable audio and costs less."

    "The Tascam are often referenced as the best DJ headphones for under 100, but for my money these things just aren't worth the price of admission. I tried a pair, and the sound was harsh and bass heavy. For anybody working with a $100 budget there are several better options."

    "Many DJ headphones privilege style over substance but the Sony MDRZX110NC Noise Cancelling Headphones thankfully have both. Within a relatively small form factor, these headphone pack in a lot of power, minimizing outside and ambient noise while pushing through amazing bass and treble--a must for any DJ! Super comfortable as well and because they are foldable, you can always keep them in a bag or purse for toting anywhere. And so affordable!"

    "I didn't think I would ever purchase a pair of wired headphones, but this set changed my mind! The sound quality through these headphones is amazing - clear and bright. The design provides amazing noise reduction, letting me focus on the music and not my environment. The ten-foot cord makes it easy to forget you are tethered. Well worth the price!"

    "There are plenty of better options for under 100 dollars than the Sennheiser HD 202 II just because they're not very close to the 100 dollar mark. A nice 80-100 dollar set of cans are going to beat these out, and they should considering they'd be nearly double the price. If 100 is your limit go for something a little bigger and more full-featured."

    "These aren't bad, especially for the price. Sound quality is good and long battery life. Unfortunately they really mess with my ears. I'd recommend trying them out before buying. My friend has a pair and it doesn't bother him at all, but I just can't wear this for over an hour without serious pain."
