I usually buy for myself expensive and high performing headphones such as bose etc. i bought these for my son who is 8 .these are one of the best budget headphones i have ever heard. Good bass and treble balance, comfy fitting ear buds. I would compare these to sehnneiser cx400 or cx500. My advice, for an excellent cheap pair of headphones, you cant go wrong. nice one. At the moment you can get these in pink blue and green for 4.99
The sound quality of these ear buds are amazing for the price. I was a little let down for not getting my free mp3 downloads, but it doesn't really matter, because I'v got enough music. Overall build quality is fantastic apart from the headphone cable feels a bit thin and easy to break. However for 8 pound it was totally worth it!
