Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First thing off, this is NOT a purist/audiophile headphone, its very clear on the box - "Extra Bass" - so its pointless to compare it to the Beats Studio, Bose Soft Comfort or ATH-M50X. There is a Bass Boost button on it but it should NOT be switched on by default. It already reproduces bass extremely well w/o it, what you do need it for certain genres of music which sounds a whole lot better with it switched on, eg Hip-hop, Techno, House, R&B, Rap etc.
How good is it? Well, you can feel the ear-pads vibrate gently on your ears ever so gently from the seismic activity going on inside! (that's a compliment, not a knock-down), and that's a side-effect from the chest-pounding, gut-thumping, pants-flapping bass that envelopes your eardrums! For other genres of music - pop/rock etc most likely you won't be needing the Bass Boost. If you're looking for a headphone with the best bass - specifically, for the type of music you listen to - this is it! But there is some preps...
good for the price, great battery life, although not ideal for listenig to Metal or Rock music
