I have no idea what other people are talking about so I decided to do a review. I've had my lowriders for about three years now and they're still kickin'. When I first got them I was impressed with the bass response and general sound to my music. It honestly brought out sounds that I didn't even know where there. Bottom line: if you want an excellent pair of phones for a decent price, buy these (don't listen to what these other nitwit's are saying).
