Some have complained that the cord is too short, and it is a little short for use at my desk (my Audioengine D1 DAC is on a shelf underneath), but for portable use, it's just fine.
Another note: these headphones are pretty easy to drive, allowing lower volume settings (and thus less battery drainage) on your portable player.
As a professional musician, I'm picky about sound, and I really enjoy listening to thesemaybe because I can't believe that sound this good is so inexpensive. I will buy another pair. Highly recommended!
In-line play/pause switch/mic
CONS: No in-line volume control (but I don't care, so it's not a "con" for me)
PROS: Price, Sound quality, Isolation, Comfort, Monoprice customer service
PROS: LIght weight, good sound quality. Low cost.
PROS: Lightweight, comfortable, in line mic, quality cable, decent sound, isolate sound quite well
CONS: Not a lot of low end bass response, extreme high end frequencies are lacking. Distortion at high volumes, though not apparent at standard listening volumes.
CONS: starts to get a little sweaty underneath but I'm a furnace
I love the soft padding on the ears and the headband as well. The textured plastic is a nice touch compared to the smoother finish on cheaper sets. The plastic on these feel like they are of very high quality and will be durable.
The single wire design is great. There is one less wire to snag. I own a pair of headphones in the same size/price class that has two wires. I definitely single wire a lot better. I do with the wire was a little bit longer.
I normally use higher end headphones when listening and doing work, but these work great and I didn’t really mind using them for over a week straight. I played games on my PC and listened to music on my smartphone and even made calls. Most people won’t be able to discern the difference in sound quality between these and higher end headphones. Technically, it does lack a bit in the extreme highs and lows. It’s not really bass heavy, but that can be good for some users. I really didn’t notice much when I was using them except in extreme cases where I knew the songs like the back of my hand. These are really good all around headphones for any person of any age. I can definitely recommend these headphones this to anyone who may needs budget or simple all-around-general-use headphones with great quality.
These headphones are definitely a 10/10 based on the class and price point they are in.
Included inline mic
CONS: Lacks in extreme Low and High frequencies
No modular cable
PROS: Lightweight, seem sturdy enough, and the most important : Great sound, well balanced.
CONS: Definitively not the most comfortable or stylish heaphones, but then again, can't ask too much at that price point.
These headphones have a good sound to them with a comfortable headband cushion and soft earpieces covered in a faux leather material type.
These headphones will be best used in a mobile-device situation due to the short cord, plugging the headphones into a headphone port makes you feel like you are sitting on top of your computer case to use the and have some slack from the cord.
The headphones will come in a frustration-free packaging. They come in a white box with a plastic bag around the unit.
I was provided these headphones from Monoprice free of charge for review.
PROS: Minimalistic Design, Soft Padding
CONS: Short Cord
