    Amazing headphones!!!

    Pros: - Overall great headphones
    - Good noise isolation
    - comfortable to wear
    - nice quality build

    Cons: Cable with controls is a little short, but hasn't been a problem for my drumming. I simply bought an extension cable if I need more cable play. Monoprice cables are the best..

    I'm a drummer and was looking for a pair of reasonably priced headphones to use. The specs provided no isolation figures, but decided to take a chance just the same given the price of 29.99. Glad I did, they provide great noise isolation when playing the drums. Better then the ones I had bought for $100 extreme headphones.....plus the jack is built into the earpiece...so no more broken cable issues like on the extreme headphones. They also have a very nice bass response....

    Pros: Price (obviously, or you wouldn't be shopping monoprice headphones in the first place)
    Solid build
    Overall sound

    Cons: Design (more of a neutral point)
    No blank logo option.

    Simply amazing headphones for the price. I'm willing to put these up against a pair of cans 4x the price of the 12230 headphones. Expect the find a very crisp and balanced spectrumthese are not bass heavy and come alive with vibrant, multi layered songs. Beats and Bose can eat my ass, I'll take these over the $200 variety any day.

    As far as construction, these headphones feel solid and robust. I can't get over how much quality you can get for $29.99 (on sale when I bought them). The design isn't award winning, but it's passable, and comes with a nice molded case. I would prefer the set to have no logo, however, just to fool any brand whores out there who will immediately attribute negative qualities to these headphones before giving them a true shot.

    OK headphones

    Pros: Detachable cable
    Decent price

    Cons: Could be very tight fit
    Lacking bass(may not matter to many depending on your listening habits)

    I tried to like these headphones, but the sound, to me wasn't very good. They don't have decent bass. They just sound empty to me. That might not turn others off, but something I didn't bother checking before purchasing. These also were very uncomfortable on my head. I wear glasses and trying to find a decent pair that doesn't push my frames into my head has been a task. I can barely use these for more than 20 minutes before my head begins to hurt, with or without glasses. The detachable cable and case are pretty nifty though.

    Pros: solid build quality

    Cons: weak bass
    overall flat sounding

    From a build quality and comfort standpoint, these are a step in the right direction. From a sound quality perspective, I would 100% agree with a previous review about the sound being flat and the bass response being weak. They are plenty comfortable and provide good isolation. The semi rigid case is nice for smashing in to my travel bag. I paid the original 59.99 price for them and I'm a bit disappointed that they have dropped in half since I bought them (which is closer to what they are worth).
