Would recommend these headphones, good sound and comfortable. And of course brilliant for the money!!
They're not as fashionable as headphones like skullcandy but work better :P Unfortunately I sat on mine but would probably be durable too.

  Pretty good but there is room for improvement

Pros:
Good sound quality
Comfortable
Price
Long, durable cable
Lightweight and small

Cons:
Somewhat unimpressive bass
Not a tight fit on your head (fall off easily)
Poor durability if used at high volumes (I've had these headphones since about half way through June this year [2009] and the headphones [internally] are beginning to wear out already [16th July 2009], I can hear a rattling noise in the right headphone if I shake them).

If I was given the choice between these and the Sony MDR-XD200's It'd be a tough choice but I think I'd pick the Sony's due to the better sound quality.

  These are budget priced and uncomfortable....

These are budget priced and show it plastic feel ear pads are too shallow. Wear them for more than 30mins and you will be desperate to take them off.
Ok for kids as they are quite strong.
Otherwise if you want sennheiser just pay up.
Other brands are far better in this price range sony and phillips.

  Great!

Just exactly what I was looking for. Good decent sound, not overly bassy. Sound is crisp and clear. Sounds amazing watching movies. Didn't hurt my ears after watching Transformers, and didn't have the feeling that they were crushing your head. I was going to get a pair of Skullcandys, but after reading some reviews I decided to get these, and I am so glad I did. I bought these on blind faith and I am totally impressed, If this it what these ones sound like imagine what Sennheisers other, more expensive ones sound like?

Covers your ears completely and blocks out external sound fairly well.

Very light and comfortable.

Just buy them before they go up in price, at £14.99 whats the worst that could happen?!

  Get what you pay for.

Thought i`d give these a go as they were so cheap and I`ve owned a few sennheiser headphones costing upto £150 over the years. All I can say is these are better than nothing but you loose out alot in sound quality. Suggest you pay another £20 and get some decent sennheiser headphones. These are really lacking in the top end and just feel flat. Plus theyre not very comfortable with a hard plastic feel to the ear foam.

  Awesome value

| | See all Fatman311's reviews (12)

I bought these headphones after my second Skullcandy pair broke as a cheap alternative before I could gather up enough money for a high-end pair and I must say these are splendid. The sound is perfect in every way with a little bass added making using them an enjoyable experience. However, I took off a star as I'm used to using a volume adjuster like those attached to Skullcandy headphones and was disappointed at the lack of one on this headphone, this coupled with the fact the maximum level of volume on my pc being somewhat low (this may only be me as I suffer from partial deafness) convinced me to remove a star.

That said, if your looking for a cheap pair of functional headphones, whether simply to use before looking for something more high end or simply as a cheap alternative, than look no further then these.

  Awesome!

These headphones are a triumph! They have a really crisp and full sound, they are immensly comfortable and very good value. I have used headphones in the past which have been double the price tag yet half the sound quality of this beast! Nice one, Play!!!

  Best buy on this site

evry headphone i got prior to this would either break, or the wires would come loose and the sound would stop with movement, ive had these for a month now and i use em for evything, plug it in my laptp to watch movies, plug it in my ipod to listen to music when im in the gym, its great and its so comfy, they almost seem as new as when i first got em as ive thrown them around in bags etc, for this price you wont go wrong and i wont be suprised if they put the price up on this.....its well worth it.
