    "Having the option to tune out the world and play nice music is something that a lot of people enjoy. The problem is finding the best headphhones to listen said music on. The Betron YSM1000 have been what I've used for the last year or so and I think I'll go with them again if I need a replacement in the future."

    "These headphones are ideal for a studio setting, where the environment is quiet, as they have very good sound reproduction. The large diaphragm is a huge plus for comfort, especially for those of us who have to wear spectacles. Smaller diaphragms can cause unpleasant pressure points when they squish the arms of spectacles into the sides of your head.. I'd recommend these to all my friends who work in radio. They also fold which is great for portability, when I'm working in studio environments where you want to take your own headphones from a hygiene perspective. Let's face it using the studio phone can be a gross experience! The telephone cord cable is a very desirable feature for when things are just out of reach and you have to scoot back in your chair without losing your headphones! The sound quality is great too, not too bassy or trebly. "

    "It is a good headphone, but you can get better quality at a lower price. Reviews are great, but they are not 5 star, and for the price, it needs to be 4.5 stars at least. It is a good product if there is a good discount on the price though. I would have been more pleased if I paid less for it."

    "I'm not thrilled with these headphones, but they are all right. The main draw is that they are cool looking, really, and I guess they are somewhat comfortable. But the sound quality and build quality are both just sort of okay. They price is WAY too high for what I've got. At this price, I could have found better quality headphones, for sure."

    "Bose always has the best sound I know. It is always pure and true. The in-ear headphones carry on the tradition of incredible sound that I like. These come with a microphone as well which is a good bonus. My friends have tried them on and expressed the same opinion that the sound is really good. "
