"Wonderful headphones at a solid price."
Overall: 10 out of 10 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First off, I bought a pair elsewhere, and the price was more expensive, so zZounds is where it is at. Simply put, these headphones are wonderful. Trebles, Mids, and Lows are all clear. Bass has a decent thump, but it stays true to the mix, rather than Beats by Dre's choice of cranking bass up. The noise cancelling is wonderful. You could go to a football game and hear nothing. Personally, I enjoy fact that I don't need to crank the volume up much. This saves my ears a bit of trouble. The battery life is really great on the noise cancelling, two rechargeable batteries = no worries. The earpad things are awkward at first, as well as the noise cancelling, but once you get used to them, you will hate going with out it. A learning curve per se. These headphones are really good. Bose's line of acoustic headphones are a bit better, but they cost twice as much. These have more "bang for your buck." If you want exaggerated bass, look at bose or Beats as these may not be for you, though I'd still recommend them even then.
