    "I don't love these for the price, honestly. They're fine but I think there are better options available on the market. I just find them a bit too pricey and not great value overall. They do get the job done, it's just there are better quality and better value options available in my opinion."

    "I am a huge fan of these headphones. Earbuds don't fit my ears very well, and cheap headphones hurt and don't block a lot of sound out. Or they're enormous and heavy, so you don't want to wear them except at home where you can put your head back. These headphones are comfortable, let you hear just the music, and don't feel like you've got beer cans attached to your head. And they sound great, which is the number one thing headphones should do."
