Overall these are vrey good headphones. I bought them to replace some 1 month old PMX80 headphones which had recently (thankfully) fallen apart. They were awful. You can see from the photo that the OMX80 earpieces hooks over each ear. I found them comfortable and well fitting, though it can take a little fiddling to get each earpiece on. Build quality looks fine. Soundwise they are very good. There is a a reasonable amount of bass, far more than the more expensive CX50, decent mid range and decent treble, and I noticed no obvious distortion. There is a slight mushiness but for their intended market (sports use) you would probably not notice. Compared to a HD600 the sound lacks bass, and general definition, but the comparison is unfair. They have in my opinion significantly better sound that the PMX80 mainly due to lack of distortion in the treble. Obviously they do not compete with top notch headphones, but for the price (£15 including P&P online) they are a bargain. Recommended.
Oh, yes, and they come in a neat cardboard package, which is more environmentally friendly than plastic and it can even be composted. Now if only I could compost my old broken PMX80 ...

The Note 8.0 might have been a great tablet once, but now it looks outclassed and outdated
A classic example of style over substance. Given tweaks to the sound it could be far better, but that’s not to be for now
All style and little substance – the Pill isn’t talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals
