    "Everything promised comes through with these headphones. They are light, they are comfortable, and they do sound great. Not just great, they also pump out some serious bass. So much that I've had people near me get really annoyed at what I'm listening to. They can't hear it, but they can hear the thumps. The road to hearing loss has never been so much fun. Great headphones."

    "You really couldn't hope to do much better for a set of headphones at this price point. I can find no fault in the sound quality at all and have been really impressed with the depth and the cleanness of the audio. My one small quibble is that they clamp a little firmly over the ears and can be a little bit uncomfortable to wear if you are using them for an extended period of time. All in all though, I am satisfied with this purchase and love the way that audio sounds when played through these headphones."

    "The sound is really good on these, and they are a bit small, but for the price these are perfect. If you have the money to spare you can get much better headphones, but for going under $100 these are some of the best you'll get! If you move them around they squeak a bit, so you may want to shop around if you'll be doing a lot of moving around while wearing them. "

    "Crappy audio quality. For this price, you can get something much better in the lower-mid range. They are built cheaply too. They're already starting to fall apart and I've only had them for 2 weeks. Don't buy these. "
