Questions and Answers
Product # 18799
Can you please add the information?
When it finally did, I was very underwhelmed with the packaging (plain white beat up box.)
When I held it and tested the movement of the cups, etc,
my initial thoughts are and still are, just how cheap this headphone feels. I haven't felt headphones this cheap since my first headphones in the 90's, as a kid.
They click with every movement of the cups.
The plastic ring on the cups move and make loud noises when I touch it.
The ear pads are NOT memory foam as advertised, rather, medium density foam. The pad material is a cheap synthetic material with sub-par stitching.
My overall thoughts of the design of these headphones were they had to find the cheapest materials/production methods possible and rush through the whole process to get it to sell.
I own other Monoprice products and I am quite surprised at just how cheap these headphones feel and look.
I've done my test to break in the diaphragm over the weekend with nearly 48 hrs solid music with varying degrees of Hzs passing through.
Overall, it produces a pleasant sound.
I'm happy with the voicing - fairly neutral but favoring the mid-range.
Good sound stage with ample bass response. Treble appears a bit lacking, but the 30mm driver does seem to split the frequency enough to appreciate tonal differences in instrument/voice.
given what I know now,
I would not purchase these again, rather, put my 46 dollars towards a much better qualify set of cans.
But, just my opinion.
I was getting angry while watching tv. Irrationally angry. I found out that the headphones were squeezing my head so hard that I was getting mad for no reason other than extreme discomfort. BTW, sound quality is terrible.
DO NOT BUY THESE
Cons: The ear pads are too small to fit even a child.
The foam offers no substance and the cups and hard plastic speaker surround will force themselves against your ears quite painfully. My ears were red and painful to the touch after 1 hour use. The "dual" speakers in each ear seem to echo and provide little bass and weak high end noises. The strap sits painfully on my skull and falls back or forward if I tip my head. The headphone jack is SPECIAL and PROPRIETARY and TOO SHORT to be of use. I had to buy a $5 adapter to lengthen the headphone cord.
Let me be clear that these headphones will squish your head, and I wear a size small helmet.
They are NOT made of the materials listed. The foam is garbage and weaker than a kitchen sponge. Not memory foam.
Hopefully these reviews won't be blocked so you can avoid this terrible excuse for a listening device and not made the mistake I did when I assumed they'd be as advertised.

However, that's where the praise ends. As another reviewer said, they feel cheap. Which is okay because the 8323's don't exactly feel like a top-shelf premium item either. Where I'm going to put the negative on these is the earpads. Some people might like "on-ear" but to me, they're uncomfortable. This is exacerbated by the cheap headband and earpad material. You do not want to have these things on your ears for too long.
Wait for the over-ear version with thicker pads.

I've had these for roughly a month and I've found them to be very average. The build quality won't feel like it's high end, but it's not cheap airplane headphone quality either. The earpads are not memory foam but simply faux-leather wrapped with padding. It's a bit on the tight side and not very comfortable to wear for longer than a few hours. The plastic molding squeaks when you move the ear pieces.
Sound quality is average. The bass lacks depth and punch. Mids and treble sound muffled at times but otherwise is about average for headphones in this price range. While it does not have any major sound quality issues, it does not do anything particularly well either.
I agree with the other reviewer that it's kind of meh. You could probably do worse at this price range, but if you're looking for a pair of headphones for a commute without having to feel too bad about it getting destroyed or stolen, this would do.

Aside from decent sound. they are cheap and flimsy plastic toys. I used them twice before they broke. One ear cup is hanging off an the other is about to fall off as well. While playing you put stress on the headphones, I get it, but this is one of the worst i have ever experienced. I would have gave it a lower rating but the sound was ok. Monoprice should discontinue selling them before it tarnishes your Brand.
The rings on the cups rotate freely instead of being attached and make noise at the slightest touch. The entire assembly creaks with any movement. I can't accurately describe exactly how cheap these feel.
The sound is just ok; to me they sound roughly the same as the much cheaper and much more comfortable 8323 headphones.
Avoid these at all cost. If you have already ordered before any reviews were available like I did be sure to take advantage of the return period.
