I haven't tried them for boarding yet but I have been using them for mowing and computer use and I cant wait for winter. Sound quality is good but wish it could pump out more bass. They fit/cuff over your ears and feel great for maybe around 4 hours before you start to feel them.
Compared to the Hesh, they are very light! I would not recommend doing bomb-runs through heavy woods for a slight tug pulls them right off your head.
I can not be any happier for what I payed for, (Got mine off E-bay for half off!) and would buy another one in a heartbeat.
