Superb Plus...

I could not have gotten a better set of headphone at this price. I do not even use it as Studio Reference Headphone but as my normal set of headphone and it is awesome.

It is not an "eardrum-popping" loud headphone set - but is just loud enough so you do not have to listen to uninteresting conversation. LOL!

Excellent value for money

According to the internet, these are an OEM version of the AKG K240 that retails for three times the price. The build quality feels a bit questionable, but the internals are allegedly the same, and the audio quality is brilliant for the asking price.

High trebles, and slightly less bass than the average pair of headphones. Comfortable over the ear (circumaural) earpads. I might consider purchasing aftermarket velour earpads. Cord is long but not removable, and is fixed to the left ear.

If you don't mind forgoing a bass heavy sound reproduction, I would definitely recommend them in their price bracket.

Best Headphones for this price range

These are really nice headphones.

They are big and comfortable to wear for long hours.
Have great sound with a good sound stage that does not leak outside.
Long cord.

Best bang for buck

These headphones sound absolutely amazing , the plastic quality is obviously not on par with premium stuff, but for the money I would say they are probably the best you can find.
