I bought the Hesh Headphones mainly because I'm sick of earbuds, and wanted something a little more comfortable for my iPod. The design and style of these headphones appealed to me, and so far I am pretty impressed. The sound quality is great, and they are indeed comfortable. There are only a few annoyances with the product. Like some over the ear headphones, these do not collapse down so that they can take up less space. Also, the cord is EXTREMELY long, like 5-6 feet long. This is handy at some times, like for plugging into an amp to play guitar, or as I'll use them with my tv at night sometimes, but when using an iPod it can become annoying. All in all though, I am impressed with the headphones, and would recommend them to anyone looking for an over the ear headphone.
