@ About @
These headphones are pretty standard for your iPod iPad or iPhone, and really, their sound quality is pretty standard too. These have a ton of faults that just don't show good build quality, or thought about manufacturing.
I bought these headphones when I bought my iPod, and within a year, they went in the bin. The wire was flimsy, I was sick of the sound and build quality and since they were close to breaking, they weren't even worth selling used. I would have expected much more from these.
@ Sound @
The sound quality isn't that good, bass is flat and acoustics sound very wobbly and lifeless. They are somewhat loud but when you turn the volume up the sound quality goes down, and vocals sound distorted. Ozzy Osborne through these sounds like he has a sore throat or about to loose his voice.
The bass guitars aren't as vibrant as they are when listening through anything else, they just don't have a good kick to them and this is quite disappointing. Listening to other music genres like say, Susan Boyles music makes isn't quite the same quality in these. She sounds the same but her voice isn't as "amazing" as it normally is.
@ Build quality @
I have lost count the number of times these have fallen out of my ears. They don't fit my ears comfortably and feel like I have 2 stones wedged in them.
The wire is easily broken, and when I had finished with these headphones, they stopped working altogether. Towards the end of their life the wire had become considerably loose and had to be held in a certain position before they would let any sound through. I had to tape down the wire to the left hand side of my iPod.
The speaker became visible through a crack on the left after a light knock and soon after, a piece of plastic at the bottom had come off completely.
@ Overall @
If you can try and avoid these headphones then please do, they are cheaply built and cheaply sold, and in my experience, cheap does not always end up being the cheapest long term, as I have since had to buy new ones.
These headphones offer lack of sound quality, poor build quality and they aren't that loud. These are not recommended.
Summary: Not good headphones
