Clearly everyone that reviewed this product is used to listening to their music through plastic cups and string. These are the worst headphones I've ever owned. The sound quality is horrible with hardly any bass and start to distort at anything louder than a whisper.

You can find alot better for £10.

 Excellent Quality, Great Sound

I just purchased these at £13.
At this price I couldn't believe they'd be particularly good, but I needed some closed cans for the office.

I didn't need to keep external sounds out - rather I wished to avoid annoying my colleagues with leaked noise, which both of my current cans suffer from terribly...

I regularly use two other sets of headphones - the Sennheiser PX100 (£20-30), and the Sony MDR-SA1000 (About £100). The former being excellent portable headphones, the latter being Sony's entry-level audiophile cans.

In my opinion, whilst (understandably) not as clear and defined as the SA1000 cans, the XD100 certainly manages to match the PX100 in clarity - even offering a slightly more defined mid-range and bass. I'm very impressed with the quality offered in such a cheap set of headphones.

As hoped, the XD100 are pretty good at preventing sound leakage - however they will not prevent external noise from being heard.

They are also surprisingly well made, considering the price. Very chunky yet light-weight, with thick cord and a strong headband. I have no doubt that these will last a long time.

My only minor disappointment is that they are larger than the picture led me to believe. They're actually not much smaller than the SA1000, making them only moderately portable. As such, I'd suggest the PX100 over these if you plan to use them with an MP3 player - these are simply too chunky to carry around, despite their lightness.

Otherwise, for use in situations where you'll have a backpack they can be stored in (or are simply at home), I'd strongly recommend these to anyone on a tight budget. They come with an adaptor for hifi and home cinema systems, which they'd also handle well.

erm... basically what Luca07 said however, id just like to add that they do work with i-pods, although the large length of cable does make it somewhat hard to all fit in your pocket... it is possible though without discomfort. For cheap, good quality and nice looking headphones, you couldn't ask for anything more... great bargain, as with pretty much everything else on this site :)

Ive never really had some "good" headphones before, usually just the one's that come with the device etc.. I must say for £10 you really can't go wrong. The sound is pretty decent, better than most earphones ive heard and they are so much comfier in my opinion, plus you dont get them falling out your ears like earphones. There is only one little point about these and that is that the wiring is too long, but that can be benificial sometimes. So all in all a good buy !
