The first thing that struck me when I put these headphones on was the mismatched drivers. The sound from the left ear is significantly louder than the sound from the right. This alone is enough to earn a do not buy recommendation from us. In addition the plug isn't good quality, you sometimes need to jiggle it to get both ears working. Perhaps we got a dud, and everyone has them, but it doesn't bode well.

Ignoring the aforementioned problems, we come to the sound. Bass extension is poor, the very low bass line of one of my favourite test tracks was barely audible. Bass impact was also quite low.

The midrange of the headphones sounds muffled, like there's a few layers of thick fabric between your ears and the headphones. Highs are slightly better, but not much, missing a lot of the high frequencies.

Build quality has some good points, and some bad points. The headphones feel quite solid and should last a while, but the mismatched drives and poor quality cable let it down.

Comfort is reasoanble for on-the-ear (supra-aural) headphones, with good padding and medium to high clamping force. Headphones that surround the ear rather than press on it are always more comfortable, and i'm not a fan of on-ear headphones.

Overall poor build quality, poor quality cables, average comfort, and bad sound make this headphone one to avoid.
