Pros: sound quality is balanced, comfort
I will be comparing these headphones to the beats by dr dre tour during this review since that is the most bought headphone in this price range. I've had these for about a month, but if these are anything like the jamz and lil jamz then the cord will be fairly weak and not be able to sustain a lot of damage, but i haven't had that problem yet. The housing is made of metal so it is durable. Compared to the tours, these are definantly more durable with the housing, but the cord is weaker and will most likely break faster, and i will also say that this cord is tangleable(if that is a word) unlike the tours. Comfort wise these headphones come with many different buds and once you find the one that fits you best then you wont have a problem with these in your ears. Also your not going to hear all of the music unless you straighten out your ear canal, its included with the owners manual, and trust me when i say that these will feel much more comfortable when you do this, and you will also see a huge increase in sound quality when you do this. These beat the tours in that category, only because the tours are very uncomfortable to be in the ears. Sound quality wise these have have a very balanced sound, the high, mids, and lows are all very defined and don't overpower the others. The only problem i have is that the bass is a little less than what other headphones offer at this price range. The tours have much more bass than these while the highs are not as defined as these, those headphones are made much more for rap, hip hop, and anything bass heavy. these headphones were made more for things like rock, alternative, punk, anything that isn't bass heavy. Overall these beat the tours in comfort, tie them in sound quality, and lose to them in durability, buy these headphones if you need comfort, and balanced sound quality, but if you need more bass heavy headphones take a look at my review for the tours.
