These lightweight headphones sit tightly on the ears, and aren't particularly comfortable with their thin pads. They don't really seal around the ears, but they put a bit of pressure on the ears, so they're not very comfortable. Build quality is about what you'd expect for the price.

The bass isn't too bad given the price, but won't be winning any awards. It's low ish, average impact. The mids are disappointing, muffled and veiled. The highs are lacking detail, and don't reach the high frequencies required for most music.

Overall the sound quality is disappointing, build quality isn't great, and comfort isn't good. I can't recommend these headphones.

RHA supplied headphones for review.
