Style: Over Ear - No Mic
It produces nice sound. The bass is good. The only thing I find less ,is the structure of the headset itself. The head phones are made of plastic. Of course, a lot of them are. The thing is that the plastic structure will weaken over time. Due to being "stretched " over the head. It makes stress points that will eventually cause the phones to snap at the ears. This take a while to happen. The better ones last around 2-3 years. I haven't owned this brand before so I don't know exactly how long they'll last you. All I can say is that it is a comfortable fit and that it sound very good for the price range. If your short on cash; but need some sound. Buy this set. ... show more

  • Great headphones for the price...
Style: Over Ear Sport with Volume Control
Stereo headphones have come a long way over several decades, and there have been so many advances, it's often hard to keep up with the latest technologies. In the beginning, there was basically only ONE type, that of being, the completely over the ear, studio-type and others. As things progressed, "earbuds" of many types began to be offered and an expensive type of these have emerged, with the advent of the I-Pod and various other portable CD and MP3 players. I've never really liked these, as no matter how much one spends, they still have to snugly and comfortably fit the individual's ears, which is no small task, as all human ears are not created equal. Fortunately, various forms of the original concept of over-ear, noise-canceling headphones have kept pace with the earbud variety. Some of these are more completely over the ear than others, some are more or less outside noise-canceling types, and then there are the cheapest non-earbud types, which can vary greatly in concept and overall quality. For the best experience in private listening, one needs to spend at least $50 these days, if not upwards of $100 or more. However, these type of stereo headphones are usually very large and are not really suited to portable, on the go listening. Still, they do not suffer from the earache of buds, and usually produce the best overall, robust sound. In between most earbud types and most larger "monitor" types, there are so many varieties nowadays, that the general, plug-in stereo-headphones shopper is usually left quite confused when trying to pick out a suitable, high-quality model, at a reasonable price. For almost all purposes, this is a really good buy, and I give them high marks in just about every headphone category one can think of or desire. And the asking price is a bargain. One little caveat however. The Amazon "product description" and even mentioned in a review or two, state that the cord length is nearly 10 feet. I think this must be referring to some earlier model or just a mistake, because the cord length of these is only about 6 feet total. While this does not interfere with my personal use or intentions of use before I even bought a pair, sound unheard, I think this should be pointed out. The difference between a 10-foot cord length and a 6 foot one is rather substantial. Therefore, these are in no way suitable for "roaming the room" or dancing "to your heart's content," as the Amazon product description states. Amazon should correct this product description. If one desires more than a six-foot cord length however, a cheap extension can always be purchased for a few bucks at Radio Shack and the like. It's a 6 foot cord though, not 10. Outside of this however, these are really great headphones for the price, and offer terrific sound and value. While they are "fold-able" in a way, this only applies somewhat, as they are not completely so, and attempts at making the set truly small for carrying purposes might only break them. While they are "over-the-ear," they are not entirely of the more expensive, truly "noise-canceling" variety, though they do a fair job at this, again, for the price. The earphones are padded and the set is nicely adjustable for nearly all head sizes, unless you have the head size of a mouse or Eraserhead. Extended use is no problem, once you easily adjust them to comfortably fit personally. That is, wearing these for hours will not cause any real head/ear strains or pains, either during use or afterwards, volume levels and adjustments aside. These tend to lean heavily towards the bass frequencies and are enhanced to do so, although the mid-range and upper-ranges come through very good as well. Still, since there is no equalizer function, it helps that whatever source you will be listening to with these, can be adjusted itself. That is, if you are using these to listen to a CD or MP3 player, it helps that you are able to use an equalizer at the source, since again, the bass response here is emphasized. I use these mainly for the computer, and my CD/MP3 player on that is fully adjustable as far as regulating highs, mids, and lows, so the extra bass is no problem. Still, even if one is not able to adjust low and mid and high end frequencies on your player source, the overall sound is excellent on generally all forms of music and sounds, and the stereo separation between left and right is, well, right on. I have always had a generally good experience with Panasonic products, and that includes higher-end, higher priced headphones from them. While these are rather cheaply made and fragile, if you take care of them and don't ask them to do what they are clearly not intended to do, you will be pleasantly surprised. A definite bonus is the small volume control on the cord. This comes in real handy at times, since not all music is recorded and produced at the same volume level, and this control allows one to raise or lower the volume without touching the source player. And again, while these headphones are not really suited for any long life with heavy abuse, and might seem too "cheaply" made for some, taking care during use negates any such negatives and I would guess these will last and perform well just about as long as you want them to. I bought two pair of these, which got me free shipping, and I really can't complain. They are great for plugging into one's computer, or using with any CD/MP3 player with an equalizer, but generally, they perform well for just about any purpose as far as headphones go. They also fit nicely and comfortably as a "necklace" during breaks in listening. One can easily buy much better headphones, but for the price, these offer remarkable sound at an easily affordable price, and I recommend them highly. ... show more

  • About right for the price
Style: Over Ear - No Mic
For the price these are decent headphones! The audio quality is pretty good for what they are, but wearing for extended periods of time is not ideal as it starts to hurt. Even though they are "over ear" headphones, my normal sized ears don't fit, so it ends up putting pressure on the upper and lower portions of the ear. They're a great pair to leave at work incase you forget your normal headphones at home or something. ... show more

  • comfortable for long hours sitting at my desk
Style: On Ear - No Mic
I like these headphones because they are comfortable and have good sound quality. This is my 2nd pair. I find they are a little tight at first so I left them on a small speaker to stretch out the plastic and they are perfect now. Seems like the foam is needed so your skin can breathe because I have other headphones that make my ears hot. ... show more

  • Good sound for the price.
Style: Over Ear Sport with Volume Control
Tried them out. Much clearer sound than the 10 dollar Sony ones. I got them at Amazon Warehouse, but to me they didn't look new as the cord wasn't neatly coiled as it usually is when you first open them. Said they were new with slight packaged damage. Still happy with the, especially on the additional savings, buying them from the Warehouse. ... show more

  • Useful if you listen in bed and sleep on your side.
Style: On Ear - No Mic
I like to listen to audio books in bed while lying on my side. These are the only headphones that allow be to be comfortable. I’ve ordered many of them as the wires get dislocated eventually because of the way I use them. Still a good buy for me.

  • They're a cheap set of headphones but they served me well for a few years.
Style: Over Ear - No Mic
I bought these a few years ago because i like to wear a set of headphones and listen to music or podcasts while i mow the lawn. They did the job and still work but i have a much better pair now that i got from a music store that i use instead. I got the new ones for a different reason but they've replaced this cheaper set as well. These don't work bad for a cheap set of headphones but they're lacking in several areas. Comfort, sound, and noise cancellation. The combination of the sound being really low (volume) when i was mowing plus no noise cancellation made it very hard to hear what i was listening to. But for the price they did the trick for a couple years until they've been replaced. Without all the background noise they would be sufficient if you need a cheap set of headphones. ... show more
