Very good for the price

There's nothing much to complain about with these headphones, easily the best in its price class

  • from Edmonton, AB

Good headphone but it is not cheap

I ordered this product online. it came at the promised time. I am happy with the sound including the base which most people look for in new headphones. The base sound is not overpowering but not dead either, just right which I like. Overall it provides good tonal balance. I am happy with this headphone but you have to buy this on sale, regular price is not cheap.

Great sound for the price!

I bought these headphones after using my boyfriend's set. The sound is the best I have heard for the price, I despise using the generic earbuds that come with phones these days. They fit snuggly to your head, my only complaint would be that every so often I get a bit of a headache from the squeeze (not all of the time though!).

  • from Burlington, ON

Not the greatest sounding headphones I've ever owned, but can't be beat for the price

I was looking for a great pair of studio monitor type headphones to use solely at my desk, as I was tired of using my gaming headset as headphones. I normally like have an inline remote control for controlling the music on my mobile device, but I considered that a waste on these headphones as they will seldom leave my desk. Considering the price of these headphones, and the fact that they're even cheaper if you get them in the states or 25% off like I did, you can't beat the quality. If I had one gripe against them, it would be that they're a bit flat sounding, but that can normally be counteracted with your device's EQ. The soundstage is nice and wide, the mids are decently clear and the highs and lows are solid. The included soft pouch case and THREE different type/length audio cables are extremely nice to have as well. Very little to complain about Audio Technica, well done.

High quality, high fidelity at a highly acceptable price

I have been using these headphones for over 4 years as a professional DJ in both high noise and highly demanding environments (live performance as well as production.) I can safely say that for what I've been using them for, there may be ones that are slightly lower priced that compromise sound quality or others that are vastly more expensive and give you that last 1%; however these headphones will be a mainstay in my kit for years and years to come. The sound stage is flat. The isolation even after 4 years of use and NEVER replacing a part, is still fantastic. Finally, I cannot even begin to calculate how these head phones have spared my ears in high noise environments. If you're shopping and looking at Sennheiser, V-Modas or even some high end Sony headphones...please, do yourself a favour and give these a try. It will be worth the 30 seconds...

They are absolutely incredible! The sound is so much clearer and more refined than any other I've heard. They absolutely blow beats out of the water

Great Headphones

Just want to share a few things: - These headphones are solid and you pay for that with more weight - The passive noise isolation on these beats all other headphones I've tried, but they also apply more pressure to make a good seal. I much prefer the isolation at the sacrifice of some comfort. Plus I don't like active noise cancellation, so these are perfect for me - The sound quality is amazing. I notice I'm now hearing the correct lyrics in some songs that used to sound mushy/ambiguous. I'm re-enjoying all my music - The phones swivel 180 degrees and can fold up, but since I don't use these functions, I find it gets in the way / can be confusing at time Overall 5/5
