Arguably the best sounding headphones under $50. Also known as one of, if not the cheapest headphones you can experience Sound Stage. Best price shipped I've seem in a long time and direct from Monoprice too. Many people also get the brainwavz XL memory foam pads but I found the stock ones comfortable enough.

I've been wanting these for a while and waiting for a sale. Amazon has also price matched it now.

I have these already, for the price they are great. Bassy is an understatement, and its not muddy trash bass like beats by dre, these are like you're in a home theater with a 12" sub, you can feeeel it. It makes movies feel epic, music sounds great, in games it has good sound stage, good detail, in csgo I heard footsteps wayyyy better than any headset i've used, I knew exactly how far people were and where they were coming from. In games like battlefront 2 the pew pew pews and explosions made it feel like an event.
There are 2 cons to these headphones: 1. the stock pads aren't great, swapped them out for brainwaves xl pleather ones and haven't looked back. 2. the sensitivity is kinda low so you'll need either a pre-amp or an amp, nothing that strong but a little amplification will do this good. Also at first I felt like they had too much clamping force which annoyed me cause I wear glasses but you can bend them fully backwards and adjust how much clamp you want, wish I noticed that immediately rather then 2 months into use >_<..
If you like bass these are nice, I rock these with a neewer nw-7000 condensor mic and my gaming setup sounds way better than any sub $100 gaming headset.
my friend ghosted me for this slick deal
Does z ever dislike anything? LOL. Just look at the recent overhyped Gold Planar GL2000.

Seems to me that "modern retro" is an oxymoron.

Not gonna lie, but I will probably just buy these.

How do these compare to the samson sr850 semi open back headphones? I bought those awhile ago at a similar price ~$30

There are some youtube videos that really give these cans some high praise.

Here's one that I saw last year...

Bassy. Fun. Great sound stage for closed backs... Should have a wide range of use.

If I were on a PC gaming budget, I'd definitely pick these up with a FiFine K669B microphone. You'd probably be looking at some of the best input and output sound experience in that price range.

Looks like an AKG K240 knockoff.

Z is correct. My last pair of MP headphones sound great. But the pads suck. How many here will buy $30 sheepskin ear pads for a $22 set of cheap cans? After 2 days, they'll sit on a shelf.

I would not reccomend these for moderate to heavy gaming. I have used the AKG 271 for over 13 years (which this is clearly modeled after) and the cup depth is too shallow for lengthy sessions. I've gone through 5 sets of varying replacement pads and any fix is temporary. They look plush in the photo but I assure you they will flatten within a month of use.

I actually did. Saw the sheepskin on a lightning deal for $24 IIRC. Made a world of difference in comfort. I use these everyday for gaming and movies.

You'd think Monoprice via Monoprice would run this deal. Nope, $25.95
