Great DJ-ing Headphones
Its all a matter of taste. If you always fiddle with your equalizer to create thick, rich bass notes, then these headphones were made for you. Honestly, some music has so much limiting on it, and its mixed in the studio with the bass end so cranked up, that headphones like this might reproduce that sound too bottom heavy. I rarely heard that problem, tho, and only at high volume. If you listen to music at reaonable volumes, or even mild volumes, these headphones are perfect for you.
Better clarity than previous models
The Sony MDR-XB600 represent a solid half-step forward for the Xtra Bass headphone series from Sony. Their looks are a little toned-down, comfort is good and sonic clarity seems to have been improved. However, the low-end lacks the control we like to hear in a bass-heavy headphone, resulting in to much bloating and boominess. You can get higher-quality sound at the price if you're after exciting bass.
Slick headphones! Definitely recommend
I'd say I'm definitely happy with this purchase. Great range of sound on these -good treble and bass. Comfortable. Cool design. I'm guessing the name Diego is like San Diego.
I have owned numerous JLab products. Thoughts:
Most buds are pretty bland...standard colors and styles. I've owned a few sets of JLab buds and the styles are pretty unique. I've actually had friends ask me where I got them.
Great sound! Lots of bass!
Unusual, eye-catching design, Sturdy build, Chunky, detachable DJ cable
Ultimately, there's one reason why this isn't for me. Turns out that while I do indeed use my normal two-cupped headphones in a way that's compatible with using one of these, there's actually a part of my DJing that the HD-120 can't help me with.
When I can't decide which of two or three tunes to play next, I usually put one of the contenders on in my headphones, put them on both ears, turn them up, close my eyes and let the tune take over.
BEST AKG Headphones Ever!
The AKG K 511's have excellent sound, very good bass and crisp highs. The cord is nice and long in case you forget something across the room and need to walk over to get it, you can keep the headphones on (that being said if you're in one place, its a lot of cord). 3 years after owning these they're still going strong. They've taken a beating living in my backpack during commutes to school and after being used very often and sometimes very loud, the quality is still there.
The TDK ST 700 High Fidelity Headphones are the best headphones I have seen in a long time. I love the tight fit because I have had other headphones that I constantly have to adjust. I love how they fold and can easily be stored in the bag that they came with. I have used them with an iPhone and iPad 2 and they work great. I recommend them to others looking for great quality headphones.
Superior sonics, Gret build quality
The clean looks of the ST-700s smack unashamedly of Dr Dre, right down to the hinged cups that allow the phones to slide cosily in to their rather plush carry bag.
The TDK ST-700 headphones fit so well you could wear them while jogging or simply use them as ear-warmers. But there are plenty of user-friendly design flourishes such as the dual-length cord, comfy soft-touch cushions and tilting cups.
Decent, but could use some improvements
Getting the headphones to sit properly in my ears is also quite a chore. It's one thing to successfully get the ear tip to fit in my ear, but wrapping the ear piece around my ears requires a lot of wiggling to ensure everything fits properly.
If I had to do it again, I would have explored more options before making this purchase. I would be hesitant to recommend these to a friend, especially for what they cost.
Sound quality is quite good
While some would consider $50 on the higher end of sports earbuds, they do offer a high quality, balanced listening experience usually reserved for the $75+ high-end earbud market. The cord length flexibility and well fitting design shows Polk took their research into the active earbud market seriously. Compared to similar style earbuds from Sony and Philips the UltraFit 500's are a notch above in both fit and function. Polk's foray into the headphone market appears to be off to a good start.
Offer good build quality and detailed, natural sound with good bass
While they're not in the same league as the step-up ATH-M50, the Audio-Technica ATH-M35 costs a lot less and offers impressive performance and decent build quality for the money -- plus it has the fold-up element that's missing from the ATH-M30.
Well-padded ear cups, good sound quality and can be folded for compact storage
These headphones are a superior, high-quality product and a great value.
Comfortable fit, Excellent sound stage
Audio Technica have a bit of a hit on their hands with the ATH-M35s. For their price, they easily stand up to competition even if they're not perfect. If you're in the market for some affordable, good quality headphones without too many issues.
Especially for field recording and studio tracking/mixing
I threw all kinds of music at this from classical all the way to Death Metal just to see how it coped and it stood up amazingly. These headphones would be AMAZING music listening headphones, would also make great DJ headphones, are great for use as headphones in the studio and at a push could be used to mix on. A pretty diverse beast I am sure you agree?
Quite a pleasant surprise
To sum it all up, I initially bought these for their stylish look, and got very good sound-quality as a pleasant surprise. Overall, I am quite satisfied with my purchase, though I cannot say I would buy from SkullCandy again. Even though they churned out a gem in this pair, I can't say it really changes how I perceive them as a brand, especially with the cheapness I see in the cord and mic/buttons.
Expensive, Poor audio quality
The Skullcandy Aviator headphones come with endorsement by Jay-Z's Roc Nation, and that's as close to musical greatness as they get. Although we can accept their styling could be appealing to some, the audio quality falls far short of our expectations at this price point. Cheaper alternatives from Grado, AKG, Audio Technica or Sennheiser will serve you better.
Very stylish look, Pretty comfortable to wear
The Skullcandy Aviators were expected to be fancy, and they are. However, like other headphones that ride on large brands and associations with stars, the Skullcandy Aviators offer a fair amount of performance.
Sure, it's still pretty expensive at Rs. 9,990. Of course, there are more affordable headphones that offer superior quality and we'd recommend those, if you're only out for performance.
Stylish, Fair audio quality
Certainly visually impressive, the Skullcandy Aviators offer middling performance for a mobile set of headphones, but they certainly are far from ideal for the price you'd pay. Despite their fashionability, they have quite a few concerns that warrant pause before buying something.
Namely, they are not well-suited for a mobile phone due to their higher impedance of 65 ohms, making their performance hit-or-miss depending on your model.
Great Headphones for students!
They sound quite amazing right out of the box, but with 80hr burn in so far, it started to sound even better. I highly recommend watching a movie with it. Not to mention that this baby really shines with my Fiio E11 amplifier. Fair warning: they don't start out as the most comfortable headphones. I suggest using a mannequin head to rest these on if you have one. It starts to loosen up. I must also mention that they are indeed very stylish.
Some distortion, Strange anomaly in 2-4kHz range
If you're looking to grab a set of cans that get the job done and look slick on your head, the Audio-Technica ATH-WS70s are a decent entry-level option. They do have a strange anomaly in some of the harmonic frequencies, but overall this is a great set of cans for the audio novice.
For the enthusiast crowd, these probably are not the way to go, as their cut-out at the 2.4kHz range will be annoying to those who really like music with a lot of high notes and harmonics.
Amazing clarity and depth of sound in a compact size
Looks can be deceiving and that is definitely the case with the fantastic Solid Bass headphones from Audio-Technica. With simple yet elegant looks, the sound is really what takes your breath away. Even though the bass is what is heavily advertised, it was the full range of audio that was absolutely crystal clear on the ATH-WS70s. Easy to adjust despite some tightness, these cans are definitely amazing for the price.
