    "I like good sound quality for cheap, but I also need something I can carry around. These headphones have that great sound for a low price, but they're also very bulky. I'd worry about them catching on things as I walk around or that it would interfere with other things I carry since they'd take up space in my bag."

    "Sennheiser has done it again with these fantastic headphones. For under $50, the Sennheiser HD 206 headphones are an absolute steal. The design is simple, but elegant, and the build quality is excellent. The audio quality is top of the line, and they are also very comfortable. The only downside is they're a bit bulky, but this isn't really a problem since they're for home use primarily. I love them. Highly recommended."

    "Not my favorite pair of headphones under $100. Sony MDRV6's are 20 dollars less and 10x the quality. Panasonic is not known for good sounding drivers. I would go with Sony's tried and true, used on every album since they were invented because they got it right the first time: Sony Studio Monitor MDRV6's."
