Not so good after 3 years  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had them /MM on the boat for 3 years.

One side isn't working (don't know if cable, plug, or transducer problem).

The screws holding them together work loose eventually, during folding and unfolding, and need frequent re-tightening.

The "leatherette" (vinyl) on the cushions is disintegrating, and black foam particles are coming out.

They hurt my ears after more than an hour of use. New cushions might help this.

Still sound good, though.

Great for the money  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had my set for a few years, and in the past year or so I began using them with my radios.
I have had the head set on for hours on end, and they're great. I have a pretty decent external speaker for my Kenwood TS 480 HX, but when I'm pulling out the weakest stations the only way to copy them is with the headset.
I do have a few other set, but none sound as clean and crisp as this set does.

Fir the money you really can't go wrong.

inexpensive, comfortable, nice sound  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
For $30 headphones, these are really nice.

No distortion that I can hear, quite sensitive at 100 dB/milliwatt. I don't care about extreme bass and treble for listening to my IC-706.

They're closed-back, and the ear cushions are large and fit _around_ the ear, not on top of it. So room noise is quieted some (maybe 10 dB), and the pressure of the phones is on the head, not on the ears.

They're light and comfortable to wear. I don't know about long-term durability. They don't feel cheesy.

With better sound isolation, I'd give them a 5.
