Is it the Headphones or the Cord?

  • Jul 3, 2012
  • by
Before I wrote this review I had to give these headphones another chance. All I can say unless I received a defective pair these are really, really poor headphones. I have much less expensive headphones that sound significantly better than these. These headphones, to put it bluntly, are awful.

Well, hold on, are they so awful?

If I switch out the cord that comes with the headphones with another one they sound incredibly better.

But why should I have to do that? What if I didn't have another cord? But the cord on this one is undoubtedly defective or subpar. And for this price that is just not acceptable.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

Powerful 40-millimeter drivers are acoustically tuned for deep bass. These super-soft noise-isolating ear cushions combine with in-line volume and track control to deliver clear audio for calls.
