    "I love the look of these headphones, but they are not well rated, and I'm not particularly impressed with them either. I specifically wanted a pair that could travel well, and these don't. The sound isn't as good as I'd hope, either. All they really satisfy is my price requirement, and barely."

    "Nice pair of headphones that are both comfortable, and affordable. Does not cancel out noise or anything, but feel good, and have good sound quality. Nothing crazy as far as quality goes, but good enough to hear all the different sounds in any song!"

    "Skip these ones! LC does not indicate that these headphones simply do not stay in the ears. The sound itself is very high quality but who needs to listen to music while they sleep? For everyday use, these are not the headphones that I would recommend."
