ZX Series Stereo Headphones
Don't Expect Beats (That's a Good Thing)
A friend of mine had a pair of these for a while, until he broke them and got skullcandy headphones. I had listened through both and I thought these were better, so I bought these. Best $20 I have ever spent. Sure, the chord's shorter than your average chord, but I don't mind. These are comfortable headphones that pack a great mid and treble range. And most importantly: great bass. I never liked Beats or built-in-bass-boost headphones, so I never wanted to fork over that money for bass that overpowers the music. When I say great bass, I mean that it is clear and well balanced. Therefore, I say to you this: better than beats, for a fraction of the price.
Now for functionality: I listen to everything, save rap, hip-hop, and country. I can tell you that when listening to a good Muse track, like United States of Eurasia, with these headphones, for the first time, it was as if I never heard that song before. It was so clear, and so beautiful, I could not believe that these were only $20. I was listening to the Chick Corea/Bela Fleck album, The Enchantment, with these, and man, that piano never sounded so alive. Even my favorite recording of "Rhapsody in Blue" sounded better than ever.
Long story short, don't expect Beats, expect more.

Perfect for the working musician / DJ & MC
These headphones offer amazing clarity and depth, what they lack in low end extension they make up for in mid-bass and vital frequencies. I have used high end two way and three way headphones and these my not beat the sound quality but with the average 254-320kbps track quality used during DJ performances or mixing live acts these work wonders. Mind you these are $20 headphones, but for practical everyday use just listening to your collection or gigging they can't be beat for value and comfort. I personally grab a new pair of the white MDR-ZX100 phones for every wedding I perform and ask the bride and groom to sign the headband when the night is through. They think its great and I get a reminder from each wedding I have the honor of performing for. Buy a pair, your wallet and your ears will thank you!

This is the first time in ages that I found headphones that lasted more than a few weeks. Every time I bought some the wiring would fail because I packed them in my work bag and the cord would get bent, causing the wiring to break. The result was always either one or both sides would stop working. I have had these for about 6 months now and I have had no problem with them at all. I will definitely be buying another one to have ready for when my current one finally just wears out. Thank you for a great product that lasts!!
