Fast Delivery, great sound! Really happy with this product


I recommend this product to anyone who doesn't need wireless headsets and can manage to have to be close to your machine, the wire that comes with the headsets is really short, otherwise i'm really satisfied with this product.

- Great sound - Really comfortable

- Not wireless and the wire is really short, so you need to be up close to your machine

Great headphones, especially at $12 each pair!


Honestly, I'm more into home audio speakers and receivers than I am headphones, and I have never purchased a home audio product from Newegg, only my computer components... Having said that, I am not a huge fan of JBL for music reproduction, at least in...

None whatsoever for the price!

A little too bassy for my taste but working great.


My neighbor liked them so much I decided to sell them to him. That night at midnight they went on sale again and I ordered another pair for myself. Both pairs are working great and my neighbor has told me several times how much he uses and likes them.

Price, Brand, Look, Feel.

A little too bassy for my taste but not terribly bassy. I don't use them a lot and both comfort and performance were acceptable to me.

Great sound! Great look! Design could use some work.


Shipped quick, product is exactly as described.

These headphones have a really great sound. The lows and highs are clear and crisp. The cable it comes with is very high quality and nice to work with. It also comes with a carrying bag which is also very good quality.

We've had the headphones less than 2 weeks and the left piece has come unattached already. I've requested a replacement, awaiting response/replacement procedure to complete to give a higher rating.

WOW! These Headphones are insane! I got them as a gift and wow are they great. The Bass is incredible, there is a note in a song I really like and it's one of those that you can only feel, at full volume, the headphones shake at how powerful it is! I...

Tiny bit fuzzy at the very top range, though at 24khz, it may just be the fact that it picks up EVERY last bit of a recording... but as long as you have a good recording, you will get awesome sound.

Really good price and high quality.


I would recommend these headphones to others mainly because of the sweet deal that's been on for a really long time.

The headphones can twist around head piece for more compact storage The locking mechanism on the headphones secures the aux cable in the headphones so they don't fall out Audio is really high quality along with the foam part of the earpiece

After a long period of time, after you take off the headphones, they start to hurt There is NO volume comtrol

Fantastic headphones


I find these headphones to be great. Many notable features including excellent bass, tonal quality, and sound imaging. That they are available for this price is truly amazing...

I find the cord to be flimsy...however, this "cord quality" is now commonplace even among high-price headphones...
