Excellent headphones for business or pleasure!
I first used these headphones at my current place of employment, using them with an MBP laptop. My team holds daily Sococo meetings with others around the globe, and sometimes these meetings can last longer than one would like. These headphones have proved comfortable, lightweight, and great sounding throughout that time.
The microphone works exceptionally well, picking up only your voice (provided you have it adjusted properly), while keeping out external noise. This is a great feature when videoconferencing, as you don't have to worry about echos or other such distractions. The earpads are also very comfortable, and don't look like they will degrade any time soon.
But it wasn't until I tried them with music that they really shown. They have pretty decent response across the audio spectrum. They aren't the best headphones for music listening, but they are very decent given the price. Bass response is actually quite reasonable; I've had more expensive headphones of a similar nature that sounded worse.
I think these headphones are a great all-purpose set - whether you are videoconferencing for business, or using them to listen to music, or even perhaps gaming (though I didn't try them in such a manner, I have confidence that they would perform just as well).
Finally - what really sold me was the fact that they worked with my Linux box; so much hardware out there is hit-or-miss, but I plugged these in and they were perfectly recognized by me Ubuntu 14.04 LTS distro I currently run. That cinched the deal, and led me to buying a pair for use at home.Read full review
