What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony MDR-1AM2 Hi-Res Headphones with Heavyweight Bass and Beat Response Control - Black
  • Sound amazing, super light weight, so comfortable when they are on i don't even realize they are there, when i take them off, i feel incomplete.
  • Comfortable, lightweight and the best sound I've heard at this price. Just get them.
  • Good sounds quality. Perfect light weight. A little bit pressing my ear but it's fine, I guess because I have a big head.
  • Excellent product. Made from quality materials, these are incredibly light in weight.
  • They are also extremely light and fragile. They are made of plastic, which is a shame considering the price. It feels cheap.
Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7GM Headphones
  • Best headphones I've ever used; they don't fatigue my head with pressure over many hours of use, and they are light for their size.
  • They are lightweight and comfortable. These are wired headphones, and they sound great and are very well made. Great materials.
  • Large adjustment range to suit different sized heads. Good durability and flexibility.
  • The weight is perfect and the size is nice. I have large ears and these ear cuffs, even small, don't put pressure on them.
  • Comfort, weight, and build quality are very good, with decent passive sound isolation when active external sound abatement isn't necessary.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-1AM2 Hi-Res Headphones with Heavyweight Bass and Beat Response Control - Black
  • Cable length is perfect, went running the other day and had no issues with them moving or falling off.
  • They've got a large frequency range, and you can certainly tell; even via my iPhone, both low and high frequencies are clear as a bell, and there's a clarity.
  • The microphone works well, but catches on your clothes so I hold it by my face.
  • The sound that these things produce is clear and defined. I find that these have more of a natural sound.
  • My one gripe is the in-line cable, which doesn`t work with my mp3 player but is otherwise fine with my music centre and CD player.
Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7GM Headphones
  • Build quality is exceptional, comes supplied with a soft bag and 3 detachable cables!
  • They strike a perfect balance of bass/mid/treble frequencies and the detail retrieval is eerie.
  • They really do sound good - good bass, good mid-range, and good highs - so no complaint - they are quite neutral.
  • Bass is smooth, mid range and top end balanced beautifully. They are snug on on your head but not uncomfortable at all for long term wear.
  • After a couple days of light use the faux leather is already peeling and flaking off.
