Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Over Ear Headphones Light and comfortable, with excellent treble and midrange. Bass response is tight and natural without being over bearing. I chose these over the Sennheiser HD449 as the Sennheisers were bass heavy with weak midrange and treble. 29 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing The headphones were delivered promptly, however my husband found them to be most disappointing as they 'leak' sound very badly. The whole purpose of buying them was to be able to listen to music in a room whilst other people either watched TV or read without disturbing them. Unfortunately they are sat in the cupboard and will probably stay there. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product, Great Value! After my old on-ear headphones finally broke, I decided to get some good quality headphones. These were the first set I came across and after doing some research and review finding online, I decided that these headphones were the best around. They arrived in 4 days, which is pretty good considering the January sales are on. After using them for a week or so I found them to be very comfortable due to the lightness of the headphones themselves and the softness of the earpieces, have a good quality feel with excellent sound quality. The only drawbacks that I can find are that are quite large so you can't really lay on your side with them on and there is not a lot of isolation when listening to music. However, for the what I will be using them for, they are perfect. 06 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality & Price I was looking for some "upmarket" headphones and being impressed by the AKG range decided to try their cheaper versions. I received them within two days of ordering and was very pleased when I took them out of the box. Comfort level is very good. They are very light to wear, easy to adjust and sit snuggly on the head thanks to the elasticated headband. The ear cups are large and the soft padding around the ears make them comfortable although prolonged wearing might make your ears feel hot. The cord is long enough at 2 metreswith a well-made solid connecter. Sound quality is brilliant for my tastes! These are not base heavy so do not expect ear-thumping. These are for quality listening where the individual artist voice, notes and themes can be recognised and appreciated. If you ramp the volume up there is no deterioration in the output, it just makes the music more impressive. I expect the quality of sound to improve further as these are used for longer. These are an excellent pair of headphones for the price. 25 December 2012
