I'm sick of the poor sound of my earbuds and my big cans are too cumbersome, so I got these to travel with a pair of lightweight, good sounding headphones, but now I use these all the time because they are so good.
One thing to note, is that these headphones have unexpectedly full bass. At first I thought it was too much, but now that I've listened for a while, I really appreciate it. With no volume or low volume, you can hear what's happening around you very easily. But if you crank the volume, it overpowers other sounds really well, without being fatiguing. Cranking my earbuds in a loud place made them hard to hear AND too loud because they couldn't overpower the low and mid range frequencies in the environment.
There are a couple things that could be improved. It would be nice to have volume control buttons. The little hook that holds the headphones in a concise little circle when they are folded up comes unlatched very easily. Maybe if it was rotated 180 degrees or hooked around further it would be more stable. Also if I wear them for over an hour I get a little sore at certain spots on my ears from how the headphones press against them. For how well these perform at this price point, I can't justify knocking off a star for these criticisms.
I recommend them to anybody. Even if you think they are ugly and will look ridiculous, you'll wear them anyway.
