Perhaps it was just these headphones or perhaps it happens in all closed supraaural phones, but these cans provided an incredibly poor seal and isolation. When I wore them, I kept hearing this high-pitched noise like the sound of air being passed through a very small crack in your window. The only way I could achieve some good sound is if I actually pressed the two sides to my head with my hands. I think that alone speaks volumes on the quality of these cans.

For the $20 I paid, I guess I shouldn't complain, but that's what sites like this are for. I guess the $20 taught me a valuable lesson: if you want full quality, go full size. If you want portability, don't be afraid to go earbud/canal.

I've never thrown a pair of headphones at the wall before, but these survived such an assault so I guess they're at least durable.
