    "I'm not a fan of over the ear headphones, but the K77s really make an argument for it. They're comfortable and LOUD. Loud enough to hear over the annoying snow plows that keep honking at me when I'm out jogging. The snow's too deep on the sidewalk: Where the heck else am I gonna run, huh? That's why, though, the K77s are so great; I can just pump up the volume and really get my Christian Slater on."

    "The Creative Sound Blaster Jam Ultra-Light Bluetooth Headset are a god send for someone like me that wants to have good quality headphones and not pay inflated prices. At just a little over $36, these little guys will blow you away with the sound quality. One major gripe I have with these are that the volume control on these headphones are rather small and hard to push if you have sausage fingers like I do. "

    "This is an okay solution. I feel that their are better options for inexpensive over ear headphones. This also only has 100 reviews on Amazon and does not look special."
