- Very clear, balanced sound
- Cheap, yet excellent quality
- Punchy bass, smooth mids, and quality treble
These headphones have been known to have durability issues, and tend to fall out of your ears.
The Details: For men who spend a lot of time listening to music, this is an easy (and cheap) gift!
These come with the classic in ear headphone design, with the silicone tips to form suction to hold them in place. They work well for some, but many find that they tend to fall out with more active use. However, they are a comfortable pair of headphones that won't irritate your ear canals even after hours of use.
The sound quality on these headphones is on par with many of the $50+ headphones, with a well-balanced sound that hits the highs, lows, and mids clearly. They're able to handle the sound of movies, music, audiobooks, and video games. Noise isolation/cancellation is average. You will hear ambient sounds (gym, airplane, train, traffic), but they won't interfere with your listening experience. They're a good pair of headphones to use in the car or on the street--anywhere you need to be aware of your surroundings.
Durability is an issue with these headphones, but that's to be expected for the price. The plastic housing is water and sweat-resistant, but the cable has a tendency to break. The headphone jack isn't gold-plated, meaning it is vulnerable to connectivity problems. The headphones come with a built-in microphone, along with a switch that allows you to change between listening to music and answering calls. Simple, but effective.
Price: If you are shopping on a budget for the perfect gift for an audiophile, these $13 headphones are the purchase for you! You get quality sound at an incredible price.
