5 stars


Great pair of headphones, really get the bang for your buck. Won't be disappointed.



I own five of them already ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Excellent headphones for tracking and light mixing. Solid bass and good clarity.



Loving these phones!


As a non-performing songwriter, I needed headphones for recording scratch tracks, meaning they had to be good quality that was affordable. My Audio Technica phones were overdue for replacement. I called Sam Ash in the Chicago burbs because that store (too far away to visit) had found me a digital recorder after I had tried Guitar Center (awful service from people lacking in knowledge). I think the person who answered at Sam Ash was Nathan, but not sure. He recommended the $ 99 Audio Technica phones that would serve for my purpose as well as the $ 140 ones. He had used both. Awesome sound. Love the two cords that plug into the phones so I can have one for the keyboard and one for the Tascam. Thank you Sam Ash!



Love it!


I use these on a daily basis, they sound amazing, and have significantly increased my ability to hear the different frequencies, which allows for way better mixing capabilities! 100% recommend!



Great quality for the price


For the price these are definitely way more high quality than expected. I use for producing at home and just recently used them for the first time at a wedding I DJed. Noise cancellation was perfect in that setting. Giving 4 stars only because materials used seem like it could break easy if you're really needing to throw them off and on quickly. I only like headphones that rotate, but I had more difficulty getting these back to the original position than using them haha. So probably not the best for club mixing, but good for small events where you're not having to pull on and off constantly.



Honestly great


A comfortable and gorgeously clear headset. A flashy and sturdy design combined with luxurious accessories makes for an awesome set of headphones for any user, especially at this price.




Overall worth more than what it costs


I use these headphones to listen to music, record voice, and play games. You wouldn't expect this to have good in-game audio at first but when i tried it out, it blew me away at how clear the sound was.
