These are solid over the ear headphones. They have a very clear and balanced sound. Not too much Bass, but they will definitely blow you away when you crank it up. (I could only handle it for one song at full volume) They do a good job at canceling noise as well. Now one thing I hate about over the ear headphones is that I can't wear them for too long before my ears start hurting. I had a different story with these. I rocked them for a 10 hour shift with no problem at all. These are very durable and easy to store due to the removable headband. The one thing I didn't like is the volume control didn't work in my computer, only on my phone.
