These looks like the beats, but sound MUCH MUCH better (with more neutral sound tones, so not made for bassheads). Stellar reviews from Tyll and Steve, and well-received in audiophile community.

I can since I have owned a pair, but no longer have since my sister stole them.

They are quite durable. The headband is plastic and the notches to increase the size are thin metal. There are hinges that allow the ear pieces to collapse so it becomes much more portable, and can fit in to the enclosed travel bag. The cushions are a leathery material. The construct is very similar to Beat, albit the Beats are built slightly more sturdy. However, I feel like these cans are quite solid and should be durable enough to last - as long as you don't abuse them heavily. I had them for about half a year, no problems with them whatsoever.

They are by far my favorite bang-for-buck headphones, out of the dozen or so that I've tried (for headphones < $100. I know the MSRP is $150, but i've seen them usually around $70-100).

I bought a pair from 1saleaday several months ago. These headphones look and sound great but they're a bit flimsy when it comes to the hinges. The hinge on mine broke after 5 months and the warranty is useless because there are constantly errors on noontec's website making customer's support unreachable.

Yeah. I saw them twice for $50 but I didn't jump on those deals. I have been waiting maybe a year for the price to drop to that again. This is the lowest I've seen.

And yet the sound better and are much cheaper than the actual Beats, ironic isn't it? :lol:

RochRx7 02-25-2013 06:32 AM

hate the design.. why must manufacturers push themselves in 'that' direction?

it looks like a knock-off.. I would think that would make consumers steer in another direction? regardless of sound..

and since it supposedly sounds good (I trust Tyll) wouldn't the higher ups realize the target market is not the fashion accessory crowd? oh well. i'm not tryna threadcrap.. but i just cant find myself taking serious anyone using that design (ex: yamaha!!! lol!?)
