I live in a relatively small Canadian city with a sh*t selection of boardshops so I decided to order these, mainly because they look absolutely dope, and i have a number of pairs of Nike sneakers so i figured i at least knew the right size to get. When they arrived (after an additional $100 in customs fees on top of $66 in shipping), i immediately loved the look of them and could tell they were well padded. I'm a fan of traditional lace-ups because I like the simplicity - however, these things are like a freaking spaceship. I guess if you've had similar pairs it wouldn't be an issue, but my last Ride boots had one pair of laces, on the outside, so I actually had to watch a youtube vid to figure out how to work all the different lace systems on this thing. Only to find out, that the leg is about large enough to fit my arm. I've never even heard of this issue before, but I couldn't do up the inside velcro strap at all, and the outside one not very well. The tongue stuck out strangely and they felt extremely uncomfortable. I have slightly larger calf muscles, but by no means huge, and am 5'9" size 8 - all I can figure is that they used an extremely skinny 5'0" girl as their model. In retrospect, you can kind of tell by looking at the top view of the boot (above). Doesn't look like any leg I've ever seen. So you essentially end up trading sick intense padded liner for the ability to fit a human leg. With all the work involved with multiple sets of laces and straps, I'm not sure I'd be keeping these either way. My advice - make sure you try them on before ordering!
These babies are well worth the cost. I bought them on a whim because I liked the style but was totally blown away by the sound quality. I believe they are rebranded panasonic RP-HTX7, which have been acclaimed for years. I disagree with some of the other reviewers, I never found bass to be lacking and I listen to a fair bit of hip-hop. I had to go up to a $200 pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50s before finding cans that were noticeably better than these. Definitely recommended for the cost, or for a relatively cheap pair of over-ears that you can travel with (they're super lightweight).
Been looking for a headband forever and I'd love to see a picture of this on someone's head to see how big it is! Anyone?
For god sakes, don't buy these. I thought they were over ear phones, because they're styled that way, but they are on ear and absolutely the most uncomfortable headphones I've ever worn. They also sound completely terrible... I bet you could get a better $10 pair from Walmart. No shit. I took them out of the box, wore them for close to an hour, and sent them back. Other headphones I've owned are the Nixon wires, Monster Beats, Skullcandy Smokin' Buds and Titans; aside from that I usually listen to my Bose sounddock. Anyway, if you don't care about sound or comfort, then I guess go ahed and purchase.
I'm really confused at the other reviews on this site.I would definitely disagree. These are absolute garbage. I bought them for the style, wore them for about 30 minutes and sent them back right away. I'm pretty picky with sound, I use/have used Bose, Skullcandy, and Sony. The sound is terrible, very hollow, like you're listening from very far away... probably similar to a $30 pair at walmart. What's more, while they look like over-ears they are actually on-ears and super uncomfortable. Consider yourself warned.
