As a musician and therefore someone who not only listens to alot of music, but also records alot of music, a decent pair of headphones really is a necessity for me.
I have owned these headphones for about a year and a half now, after purchasing them from Argos for about £10. In that time, I have recorded hundreds of songs, listened to hundreds more songs, taken them to uni with me, used them to play my digital piano as to not annoy my neighbours and guess what? They are still as good as the day I bought them.
I have bought loads of headphones before that quickly started to loose quality, or would loose one side so it only half worked and I kept on needing to replace them, but I have had no such problems with these headphones.
What is most impressive for me, is the sound quality, particularly with drum or bass heavy tracks, as the definition is really excellent and it makes listening and recording a real pleasure as you can really hear what your playing in to your computer, which is important for me as others hear my work too so I need it to be right. It still astounds me to this day that they cost me just a tenner, and now can be bought for as little as £6 on Amazon. Unless you were told the price before listening to them, you would think they cost much more.
There is also a fairly lengthy cord which means I can be a fair distance from my computer or keyboard and there is also a volume control on the cable, so if it's too loud or not loud enough, I don't have to change the volume on my pc to adjust the levels. You can also turn the earphones to the side, which is great if you need to listen to two audio streams at once such as piano and then a drum track or metronome from your pc.
All in all, a fantastic buy and at under a tenner, a real steal! I would say finally not to be put off just because they are cheap in price, because although that usually means they aren't good in quality, this really isn't the case with these headphones. As purchasing headphones can run into the hundreds, a pair like these will really save you money and in my opinion for the time they have lasted and the continuous quality, you aren't loosing out at all. A real bargain!
Summary: A real steal purchase.
