I bought these at some discount clothing store for no reason really--they looked very comfortable and were like 10 bucks, long cord, seemed like good cheap TV headphones. Easily the best 10 bucks I've spent in recent memory. Maybe it's because they suprassed my dirt low expectations, but these sound quite nice. Not the best sounding headphones ever but they're well worth at least double to triple their asking price of $15. The bass is pretty darn deep for an expectingly atrocious-sounding headphone, and pretty warm and punchy in texture. It's not the most quality of bass, but it doesn't come off as offensively boomy either. The midranges teeter on the muddy sounding at times. Some female vocals seem distant and male vocals feel slightly boxy. But, much like the quality of bass, a mishap, but no obsessive peaks are heard either, and the midrange is rather smooth and stays away from being honky. The high ranges seem slightly scratchy, or i.e. not in content with the music, but aren't overpowering nor recessed in nature, if not just a bit recessed. The overall signature is warm, but still pleasing. Detail is quite suprising on these cans, almost on the lines of my Sennheiser eH350's which retail at four times the price. Soundstage is pretty large and seems more in-content with the music while most cheaper headphones have a large soundstage, but sound choppy and inconsistent in it. They are very comfortable as expected, but portability is awful, for a more portable-suited headphone at this pricepoint I'd recommend the Koss KSC75. They do have a slight bit of isolation to them despite being open, about as much as the Sennheiser HD201 and beyerdynamic DT231. Durability seems okay but the build feels rather cheap and the wires are iffy. But if you have $15 to burn this wouldn't be your worst choice.
