    "The Oppo PM-3 is packed with sound quality and just overall build quality. This comes at a premium price and one that I went in on to experience what some of the best sound quality in a set of headphones would sound like. I wasn't disappointed to say the least. The excellent sound quality with the closed-back completely isolates noise from the listening experience. I listen to a lot of acoustic music so the Oppo PM-3 was right at home for me. It's a really expensive set, studio professional level prices almost, but the sound quality is top notch."

    "These headphones are wireless, which is great if you have a room setup where cords can catch easily or if you're playing any kind of game that gets your body moving. The sound quality is great, and well worth the high price. The only qualms I have with them is that they are a bit heavy, which is likely because of the battery and hardware, so that might be a bit unavoidable. They feel a bit fragile, but thankfully my pair is staying together so far. "

    "There are better options available that offer superior quality in terms of audio. I'd recommend that consumers avoid this model and decide on something else. Quality is equivalent to a product below it's price range."

    "Interesting closed back headphones for use with a smartphone. They are set up with bluetooth for this purpose. These are more likely to fit users with smaller ears than standard earbuds. Sturdy design, not cheap and may be out of stock so grab them if they're what you want and you find them. "

I can charge them up Sunday night, and use them all week during workouts without worrying about it. Such freedom! The microphone stays up out of the way, and it really does let me talk on the phone using them if I want without any problems. Super useful set of headphones."

    "As a musician and music producer with my own recording studio, theses headphones sound incredible. Whether I am casually listening to music or involved in strenuous sound editing work, I need good quality, durable headphones. I'll definitely pick up some Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones next time I am looking for a replacement. In addition to their advertised top-quality sound, the 90° swiveling earcups and the detachable cable design seem highly convenient for one-ear monitoring, audio sharing with studio mates, and storability. I'm highly interested in this product. "

    "Really nice sound quality for the price of the headphones. The price is more expensive then ones you may get from a department store, but the quality and function of them makes up for them. Great for anyone who really enjoys listening to music, and wants to immerse themselves. The first thing I realized when using the headphones was just that it made me want to listen to music, and really nothing else sometimes. I would literally just sit in my room sometimes and listen to music while browsing social media. Not normally something I would do."

    "I recently purchased a set of Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 headphones Special Edition and I am happy with them so far. They are quite comfortable and the sound quality is good. I do wish the noise cancellation blocked out a little more, but at this price point I shouldn’t be too surprised. I have had no problems with Bluetooth pairing and the battery lasts quite awhile. I would recommend these if you are looking for a good set of wireless headphones for under $200. "
