All these one star reviews are ridiculous! You need to compare apples to apples here folks. I got these at the "stupid Deal of the day" but 25 and under and these are a steal. Good sound, nice isolation, solid construction and a nice long quality cord. I've been using then in my drum practice room and they are just fine.

Thought I'd try these when they were on sale for less than the "standard" studio cans.

About all I can say good about them is they are very light, about half the weight of my regular phones.

The problems are many...
-These are NOT circumaural unless you have ears the size of a two year old. That means, for me anyway, they are half on and half off my ears making them extremely uncomfortable. It also means they will never seal properly, so much for isolation.
-The isolation is bad. Sealed against my temples (to avoid the ear problem listed above) and playing at a moderate volume, they are easily picked up by my studio condenser mics. About the same as a set of open backs.
-They feel like they're going to crush your head. I suppose they did that to try to get the lousy design to seal on your ears. You can probably stretch them out, but that would make the seal even worse than it already is.
-The frequency response is not very good. A big peak in the mids, and rolling off pretty fast both high and low. Makes for loud but thin vocals, and really weak instruments. The talent will be pointing at their instruments and motioning to you to "turn it up! turn it up!".
-The build quality is terrible. To Musicians Friend's credit, they tell you when you order these that there are no replaceable parts, a red flag that I foolishly ignored. The cord is stiff and hard, the plug is cheap, the 1/4" adapter is heavy but designed so it will only work with the plug on these phones, and the ear pads are cheap and stiff. I don't think these will last more than a few months if used regularly.

I have had on worse headphones, but not in the price range these are pretending to. Since I can't imagine ever using these, I'm sending them back even though the shipping will eat a third of the price I paid. Bummer.

    Comments about Gear One G100DX Isolation Headphones:

    To start off, I bought these headphones just to have a secondary pair around for when I need to show somebody new material that I'm working on. My primary is a pair of Bose over-ear headphones (the 150 model).

    Now, to say that these headphones are adequate isn't totally a lie, but it's bordering on stretching the truth. They're hardly adjustable, the rotation of the portion that goes over your ears is minimal at best, my ears feel like they're smashed and mangled inside, and the sound quality with my instruments is muffled and hollow. There is zero low end in these things, so if you're an electro/dance/rap/bass fanatic, you're out of luck.

    I would have to say that the only 2 redeeming features about these headphones are the length of the cord and the capacity to nullify ambient noise in the environment. Once there's sound flowing through them, there's not much (if anything) that comes through. I used them when I was playing my electric drum kit, and the sounds of the pads didn't cut through until I turned it down to a pretty low volume.

    To wrap it up: If you're someone who is looking for pure audio quality, do NOT buy these headphones. If you're just looking for something temporary to feed the need and listen to things while you're busy doing other stuff, go for it. That being said, I feel like you could get better sound quality for less, so if you're buying these, buy them for the hoise reduction and cord length. If you're an audiophile. just bite the bullet and save up for a better pair. 100 will go a long way these days, and for 1/3 of the price you're getting 1/20 of the quality.

    I will be returning these.

        Comments about Gear One G100DX Isolation Headphones:

        These were on sale at a great discount. They have great bass response and sound isolation in the cup earpieces. They were a bit too tight at first, and there's no adjustment controls, but I just spread them apart and the wires that hold them bent enough to make them more comfortable.
