    "For the price point of about $50, these are ok. Probably not going to be your main headphones, or use for a specific thing like working out or running, but these are decent as a backup pair or if you don't want to spend too much. The sound is ok, they are well-made and I like the cushy feel on the ear. The only problem is it took me a while to get these as they were out of stock for a while, but I liked them for that price."

    "I received these headphones as a Christmas gift and they've single handedly renewed my belief in Santa Claus. The sound quality is amazing for such an adorable pair of headphones, they fit great, and no external noise gets through. There may be better headphones out there, but you won't find anything that works this well at this price. "

    "These are nice quality headphones. They have some weight to them which I like. They mute out the sound from the outside. They connect easily. I do have larger ears, and I wish the ear pads were more oval shaped instead of round so my ears would fit inside them entirely, but that probably isn't an issue for most people. For the money they sound like they should - the right balance of highs and lows and everything in between."

    "These headphones fit within this search criteria, but could still be a bit cheaper for my taste. The user reviews are very good, and there are a high number of individual reviews, so these would likely be worth the price despite not being familiar with this brand."

    "These headphones are, frankly, horrible. The package talks about great sound, but it's really tinny and full of odd notes that are immediately noticeable if you've ever bothered to listen to proper headphones or speakers. They're marketed as cheap, and that they are. If you never notice when people complain about how something might sound bad, and you want to save money, then these are for you. Otherwise, tune out."

    "The quality and price of these headphones is fantastic value. The bass quality makes these headphone very desirable for the price. They also have a great design that is both portable and comfortable for my ears. I like the open back design so some outside sounds are let in and I can be aware of my surroundings when I am jogging. I can listen to music on the go with headphones that do not break the bank and look and feel amazing."

    "My kids broke my new pair off headphones so I needed a cheap replacement. I picked up a pair of Sony MDR-ZX310. They are foldable so I take them to school with me. They seem more durable than my old ones. I really like the deep bass. I hide them from my kids so I do not lose these because I love them."

    "I love my music at work but I don't want to disturb other people or compromise the sound of the music. I was looking for headphones under 50 dollars in case they ended up "missing" so when I found the Sony MDRZX110AP and I was impressed. These are by far the best, affordable headphones for music that I've found to date. Love them!"
