These were my first real headphones, now discontinued, and are certainly nothing worth buying. Their only strength is a bass that goes surprisingly deep, and hits fairly hard. However the bass is very loose and it goes with the generally cheap sound and feel of these headphones. The mids are barely passable, and the highs are completely unrefined and can be very harsh. Soundstage, what soundstage? I've heard IEM's with better soundstage. The comfort or lack thereof, is what drove me to look for better headphones. The pleather pads aren't very soft, and I found them to be itchy. After a while the pleather began falling off, and the size adjustment mechanism became loose and flimsy. Amplifying these headphones does close to nothing to improve their sound.

The only headphones these improve upon are free earbuds, or no headphones at all. I guess if someone gave these to you for free...
