These headphones are very good for the price that you pay for them. In my experience, cheap over-ears don't last long and have terrible sound. These are worth the price. They certainly aren't miracle headphones, but they are durable. They are completely plastic. Probably not the best for people with very large heads. They are good for watching movies and videos; but if you're a music fanatic, the same amount of money would be better spent on Sony's DR-EX12IP in ears. In ears tend to have better quality in low price range, but they can't beat high price over-ears for sound quality. This is an un-bias opinion. I do own these headphones. I also have reviews on Sennhieser, Shure, and Apple headphones.
