These headphones were a gamble. I was just looking around in a technology shop abroad whilst on holiday looking for a new pair of headphones. I was sceptical about these at first, but when I put on a test pair and played some music, I was completely blown away; I heard absolutely every single minuscule detail of my music, as well as things I never heard before. A quick look at the specs and I was away to the cashier. The next few days I spent rediscovering my music library with this amazing headset. Yes, it may be simple, the cable does get in the way at times, the remote is fiddly but, by Jove, this is the best headset I've ever heard. And for a dirt cheap price I feel is almost unfairly low. When trying headphones in the much higher price list, I'm not jealous because I know that I own a phantom gem everyone overlooks.
What this headset excels in that other headsets fall behind in is the fact that it just plays; it doesn't force the very low and high frequencies most headphones would. They provide you a very wide and clear frequency response, meaning that you hear your music as it was intended, with no bass boost and other trickery. This headset brought me to tears of joy many times, and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with this golden nugget.
One thing that really got on my nerves was the volume control. Yes, you can change the volume but it messes with the stereo balance. One day I just took a soldering iron and bypassed it. Now I regret nothing with these headphones.
