These headphones are good and do many things well for the price. They're not the best, but very good and fun. Points to consider in no particular order: They look metal: they're basically all plastic with a painted silver finish.

The padding on the headband is ok, could use a bit more (depends on the crown of your head i guess). I hate on ear headphones; yet these are superbly comfortable on your ears.

As for the sound, they're a V shaped sound signature, so treble and BASS is at the forefront. They're very clear headphones, don't have much depth to the sound stage but their main selling point is the bass. These headphones are akin to mini subwoofers on your ears. They're bassier headphones that go deeper and hit harder, but they're considerably more expensive. These are very good at bass which is what they were designed for. Overall whether you think they'll be worth it to you is obviously subjective. Go to amazon and type in sony xb and you'll see several different models which are all tuned a bit differently but more or less will be the same sound signature. For reference, these were the ones I had:
