Comfort and sound quality
Not particularly sensitive. Large, completely over the ear, ear pieces may not suit everyone.
These headphones, at about £30 from Argos, deliver excellent sound for hi fi listening. The treble is detailed but not over emphasised, mid range is clear and bass is deep but controlled. My best description of the sound would be 'smooth'. They are large and comfortable with fabric ear pads and have a suitably long (3 metre) cable which comes with a 3.5mm stereo jack plus a converter for the larger 5mm(?) jack socket on most hi fi equipment. Only negative point is their lack of sensitivity - not an issue with hi fi equipment, but if you want to attach them to your MP3 player, look elsewhere. They do need driving to get the best sound.
