Unbeatable at this price point Posted by: from: Sacramento, CA on I purchased these after doing a lot of research online. Even at full MSRP (you can find them lower on occassion) they're fantastic headphones. Unlike the reviewer that couldn't hear any bass I find the bass to be perfectly balanced and certainly present. Some songs I would say the bass is still a little too prominent, but that is only playing through my iPhone so it may be the way the sounds is mixed by iOS. I've worn them for hours at a time with no discomfort. They seal out sound quite a bit and they're closed back so there isn't much sound leakage for the people around you. I would recommend these to any of my friends and family without hesitation.

Best headphones in this price range Posted by: from: on IMO, these are the best (closed) headphones in this price range. I felt compelled to remove one star, because even though it includes multiple cables, I personally feel that they are too long, and wish a 3-4 ft cable was included. The headphones themselves, though, sound terrific and I'm glad I chose these.
