I have to edit this review to write a short one. These cans sound good for the price, decent bass and overall decent presentation, with nasaly mids and lack of detail. But break very fast. Had to take ratings down.

I have these for more than 2 years and they are still like new. I use them almost everyday exclusively for watching TV and playing console games, and I have no durability issues. The volume control is great and very well made.

They are light and comfortable, but the armature makes a lot of creaking noises since build quality is very cheap. It's all cheap plastic, but it works.

The sound is surprisingly good for the price. Very smooth and relax, laid-back type of sound. Bass is deep but somewhat uncontrolled, with some resonances in the mid-upper bass. Midrange is recessed and a bit nasal. Treble is very good, but not as extended or crisp as an audiophile set.

Overall, it's a fantastic value for the price and certainly one of the best sounding headphones in its price range.
