    "I've tried a ton of headphones lately and these sound by far the best to me. I like generally flat sound. I'm more concerned with clear mids and highs and want present but not overpowering bass and low bass. Headphones I've tried include the following with my totally subjective sound rating on 10 point scale. YMMV."

    "I work in a noisy manufacturing job. I don't actually sit at the machines, so there isn't any reason I have to hear them! The AKG K551s were the perfect find. Reasonably priced, they block out almost all the machining noise in the background. My only gripe is they feel just a bit flimsy."

    "I needed a pair of noise isolating headphones because my roommates listen to their TV's louder than necessary. I shopped around and came across this brand and it looked promising. Besides being noise isolating, it actually looks like it has a decent sound system in it too, so if I want to play white noise to completely drown out my roommates, I can. I bought them and they did exactly what I wanted. No more loud television shows distracting me while I read and do homework!"

    "The headphones are noise canceling. They come in black, blue and white. The price point seems excellent at under $50. The headsets do seem a bit bulky. You might need a big head to wear them."

    "These Sony headphones are good headphones and one of the best options at the price. Not only do they beat the $100 threshold, but the $50 one. So, it is really a good budget friendly option even if it's not the overall best headphone, it's a great choice for the budget conscious."

    "One of the things I wanted to make sure when I bought a noise isolating headphone that it had to be comfortable enough. And of course it had to work well. Well, these are a great solution. The Sennheiser HD 206 is really comfortable to wear for those who intend on listening to music for hours. And best of all, it really does isolate the audio. Does a great job of cancelling any outside noises as well. They also look great. I really recommend these."

    "Since I am a audiophile I know what makes a good pair of headphones. A pair with good bass and some decent noise cancelling is needed. These are a pretty good value for the price. The TaoTronics TT-BH21US has some features that some of the more expensive name brand headphones have. If your willing to not buy a name brand then you could get a decent set of headphones with features that rival the name brands for a fraction of a cost then go with these. "
