A affordable pro quality headset
from San Jose, CA
I like this headset, significantly better sound than Apple EarPod and other ear bud that I have used, especially in highs and lows. It also has slightly better sound quality than those $300 dollars Bose and Beats headphones. The sound stage can be better but it is good for this price range. The headset was a little bit tight for me and feel a little bit warm over 30 mins of listening, but the noise isolation is very good (passive not active).
By music guy
i bought this headphone on sale. it has decent sound quality. fanatastic for gaming. watching movie and listening music. it is very comfortable to wear. but if you wear it for a long time you will feel hot. and the bad thing is the wire too too long. not convenient. anyway. stronly recommend it.
