    I really like these and if you can get them for a low price then it's a complete steal. I might be willing to pay the retail price but it'd be a tough decision as good as they are. I think anything under half the price and you'll be happy.
    Pretty much comes with the standard features of any headphones. They are nice and compact and they fold in so that size is minimal. If you're traveling a lot and need small but excellent sounding headphones these are good to get. They also do a decent job at eliminating noise. The cord has a volume slider to change the sound volume.
    I'm not going to lie. These headphones look really cheap. The quality and design are made of plastic. It even has the imfamous "Made in China" written on it.
    They fit well and the sound is clear with enough bass. I compared these with other headphones like the Panasonic RP-HC700 and these had clearer sound and better bass.

    These phone are pretty light and flimsy. The cord is so short you can't plug it in and rock back in your chair. Sound is good and the comfort is pretty good but it's nothing like those old Koss phone I had for 30 years repairing with tape and glue. Over all, I am disappointed with my purchase.

    Comments about AKG K 430 Closed Back On-Ear Headphones:

    If you can get these headphones on sale like I did there is not a single pair of headphones in the price range (sub 50) that will come close in my opinion. At full price its a bit too expensive because of the plastic construction. But the sound of these headphones is phenomenal. The bass response is amazing and they out-perform my roommates headphones that cost 2 or 3 times as much (mostly because they are endorsed by a certain Dr.)

    Comments about AKG K 430 Closed Back On-Ear Headphones:

    Excellent sound in a well-built, lightweight package. Sound is somewhat reminiscent of my first AKG's (K140's) from a long, long time ago. iPod will run these well except for high noise environments. These are not made to "seal", but rather to rest comfortably "on" the ear. Material forms comfortably to the ear and swivels easily to ensure constant positioning while wearing for extended periods. Phenomenal value when on sale for just under thirty. Would have paid more now that I've heard them! Carrying case is good. 1/4" adapter plug is solid!

    Nice pair of headphones at great price. Good fidelity. Bright, clear, responsive bass. But, the cord seems flimsy and is way too short. But at the price I paid for them, they are a surprisingly good deal.

          AKG is known for making good gear. This product tarnishes that reputation. There is no low end sound. It feels and sounds like a cheap headset.
