These phones are super comfy. I didn't mind the fact that they are bulky. The sound quality was pretty good at a low volume. Anything higher than 1/3 up was muddy. I loved the volume control on the right earphone. The cord that comes with it is flimsy and I suggest replacing it. The most FATAL FLAW was the cheap plastic ball that allows the earphones to move around. It broke within a few days of owning these headphones making them completely useless. I wouldn't buy them again. I love Nixon products, they just got it wrong with these.
