Needed a good set of general PC audio head phones. When traveling I haul a light weight desktop, flat screen and the works associated in a large roller bag portable office. Needed a full cover ear phone which would fit in my plastic accessory box spacer 3with power wires, video cable etc. Grand find a a great sale price. Work much better than I expected.

I only paid around twenty for these, so the build quality is great for the price. They look like much more expensive headphones. I would say the sound is OK, but they advertise enhanced imaging and the ads indicate more high end presence, like more expensive headphones. I could not notice any of these qualities, and I'm an audophile. I think they retail around 80 , so I got a good deal. I will probably let them go, since I have a pair of similar priced AKG's ( also bought on sale ) that sound just as good - actually a little better. If these had cleaner highs they would fit the bill - they sound a bit muddy to me.

      Comments about Fostex TX-1 Headphones:

      I was a studio musician in NYC starting around 1968. Back then there were no good headphones at any price, but in the studios there were "work headphones" that let you hear the other musicians but were definitely not of any quality. They worked great for that, but not as well as listening to tracks on JBL or ALTEC speakers. These Fosters are that. Ok for doing work, not for reference or listening to music for study or pleasure. As far as that goes, they're great. And disposable; blow them out, so what. I have other cans I use for reference and listening, among them KRKs, Sony and Beats (beats is for a definite kind of music and listener however.) I evaluate audio on how flat it is; I don't like equipment that 'enhances' or changes the original recording. These Fosters do not change the sound; they don't reproduce it well either unfortunatley.

        Got it for less than half of the normal price. Sounds and looks good but I wouldn't pay full price for them as the construction seems to be really cheap and i don't know how long it will last in everyday use.

        Sad, they look like they are. Kinda cheap and a little weird. Fair price on stupid deal. I had an old pair of T-10s that were inexpensive and classy. I had hoped for more from these albeit they were fair priced.

                  Just 3 stars because there is nothing special about these headphones. I got them on SDOTD. So the price was great. Got them so my son could use his amp with out bothering anyone.
