    "Solid highs and lows, the conformity around the ears is great, when you are running. The buttons are terrible though."

    "I am often going on long car trips and since that can get boring I like to watch videos on my tablet and phone. I was needing a good pair of headphones that wouldn't break the bank since I didn't want to wake the sleeping kids in the car. I found these one day while shopping online. I bought them and tried them out. They were so comfortable. They were form fitting and I could hear every note and sound, and the bass is pretty cool too when listening to music. I really like these and I got them for a steal!"

    "These Panasonic headphones yield a good, balanced sound quality. They are also lightweight, extremely comfortable and easy to adjust to different head sizes, thanks to a simple design that allows you to adjust the width by sliding the earphones along a metal track. The Bluetooth technology works well, and they are easy to charge and connect. The headphones have an attractive retro look "

    "While the Philips M1MKIIBK/27 Fidelio headphones are a good set for under $100, I don't think they are great for traveling. Being corded, its one more thing to get in the way on a long car, plane, train ride, and something else to get messed up packing away in your luggage."

    "The ultra lightweight and retractable design of the Ironhammers 900 headphones might tempt those who travel a lot and need the security of an over the ear style headphone without taking up as much space. However, the quality control on these headphones is poor. Mine only initially held 2 hours of charge and after 2 months, the battery capacity fell even further! The audio quality is also very poor. If you want something that is similar but better, LG sells multiple styles of retractable headphones that are better rated in the under $100 price range. "
