I love how they fold up to almost fit in your pocket. Crazy.
I love these. I have actually had a pair just like them in the past and was very happy with them then. The price is awesome for what you get. The adapter plug alone that comes with the headphones got me excited. I have a DJ business and I use these headphones to preview song request at parties and my PA board only has 1/4" jacks on it so I was happy that I didn't have to purchase an extra one of those. The flexability of the headphones is very helpful at my events as well. They are compact and fit into my gear boxes very well. Great deal, fast delivery, completely satisfied all around. Thank you Musicians friend for coming through once again for me and my business. I will be back!
Excellent for the price.
Best I found for the specs.

Let me just say right off the bat, that I got a pair of these free when I bought Auralex Mopads for my KRK Rokit 5 Gold Editions. Considering I bought those for a little more than what these are currently priced at, and this pair of headphones came with it, which saved me from having to buy a new pair of headphones separately for another $30+. The sound quality isn't bad in them, and I believe these are ported, which is why they acheive the full 18hz to 20khz range. That said, I wouldn't recommend listening to music around a crowd of people that might not like hearing what you're listening to. They're definitely not good for wearing for long periods of time, but they are lightweight and fold up to be pretty darn small. The fact that they have a 1/4" adapter for when you want to listen to a practice amp or use headphones when DI recording instruments without disturbing the neighbors is a plus too.

However, be aware that these are CHEAP construction. Do not expect to be able to abuse these horribly and have them last for very long. The wires are very thin as is the plastic frame that this is made from.

The sound quality is ever so slightly tinny compared to some of the Sennheiser and Sony products I've had in past years, but as mentioned earlier, having gotten them free, I can't say much. If I hadn't, this probably would've gotten about 1 or 2 stars, as there are definitely better products for this price range.

Another plus is that the packaging is very easy to open (unlike many products out there nowadays). It's just a simple plastic fold over a cardboard backer that has the warranty information, specs, etc. on it.

A decent pair of headphones

By Daniel Wagaman

from Philadelphia

See all my reviews

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

I thought they would be crap. I ended up liking them better than other headphones I already have. Comfortable, pleasant sounding and they don't fatigue my ears as quickly. I've listened through lots of more expensive headphones over the years and frankly can't hear a big difference between them. Really nice to throw on for practice or listen to some music around the house. I don't know if I'd mix down a record for a top 20 band with these, but is that why you're reading this review?

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

Great set of headphones, would definitely suggest these to friends and other musicians. Everyone needs a pair of cheap, reliable headphones. I didnt have to buy a 1/4 adapter which was the icing on the cake.
Came with the 1/4 adapter which is very handy.
Seems like a good product, sound wise, and durability. i would refer it as a good buy and great headphones to anyone.
Great buy, it sounds amazing played through it. great deal.

Lite and Nice

By Anup Singh

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

..
I got this for free with my DGX 640 keyboard. Built quality is okay. I liked that it's very light and you don't really feel anything sitting on your head or clamping your ears tightly. The rotatory design of earphones near the ear is a smart idea and it fits according to the shape or angle of your ears. Sound quality is good too, I would expect a little more bass. But for the price you pay, I would give 5 star.

Meh...

By Monty Morris

from Northern Utah

See all my reviews

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

If you're looking for a somewhat comfy set of headphones, with below average sound quality and a price range that reflects these things, then look no further. If I had paid for these, I would return them honestly. Having used V-moda's, Shure, and Audio Technica's... my ears cried when I put these on.
90 Degree rotation on the ear cups, has a cable for each ear cup which tends to get in the way, comes with a 1/4" adapter. Standard fare.
It feels like I'm going to break them when i put them on. Ear pads are comfy though. Lightweight and produce 'better than expected' sound (I didn't expect much, thats close to what I received).
If I would've paid for these, my rating would've been lower. But since I received them free when I purchased another piece of equipment that pushed the rating up a little.

Lightweight but powerful

By Lise Boorse

from Maryland

See all my reviews

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

I don't have a lot to compare these with except a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 250s that I previously used. The sound on the G40DX headphones seems just as good, and they are very considerably lighter and easier on my head. The only downside is that they don't cover as much of my ear and leave some gaps that could let in ambient noise.

Ouch

By Woodtick

Pros

  • Adapter Included
  • Long Cord
  • Pretty Decent Sound

Cons

  • Flimsy Construction
  • Uncomfortable

Best Uses

  • Music
  • Portable Devices
  • With My Computer

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

Bottom line: they are very uncomfortable. For this reason alone I would never recommend them. However, my husband says they aren't uncomfortable for him. Maybe if you have a bigger head?.... I don't know. I must say that I NEVER wear headphones that don't go IN your ears, so it could very well be that I am just not "used to" the feel of them. But frankly, I think they should feel good as soon as you put them on.

The sound is pretty good to me, although I am by far a music/sound aficionado. Both my husband and stepdaughter say they sound pretty good.

They still work after about 4 or 5 months with infrequent (once or twice a week, brief period) use.

Neither the good sound nor the price (I got them for one third the selling price & free shipping) outweight the fact that they hurt. No recommendation here.

These are barely worth the price

By MIchael White

from West Coast

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

I don't know how the sound is on these thngs. I just listened to them briefly and they seemed to sound okay.

The problem is that these are very uncomfortable and they ear pieces are too small for my average sized ears. Mostly the plastic band fits too tight and unless they become a lot more flexible/ soft in a short time, they're going to be headphones I cannot wear for more than a few minutes at a time.

They also have a very long cord. Now for my purposes a long cord is a good thing. But if you're planning to use these for an mp3 player or other portable application, the long cord is going to be a problem. If you want to use them in your living room as I am doing, then the long cord may be something you will like.

As others have noted these headphones are made from plastic and I do think they will probably break fairly easily.

All in all, you'll be better off to buy something more comfortable for most uses.

Average

By Ryan Kelley

from USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

I got these with my Casio keyboard (a CTK-6000), which is the main thing I use them with. I also used them as temporary headphones for my iPod when mine broke, and they were good enough. However, they seem to be too small for my ears and it's a little bit annoying if you use them for too long.
Not many features to talk about. They fold up and they come with a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter.
The sound quatily is not great but good enough. I plug them in to my Casio keyboard when I'm practicing and they're good enough for that.
They're cheap. They're what you would expect for the price.

Pleased

By Janie

from Tucson AZ

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

These sound wonderful. Son found and approved of the maker.

Son has a large head. He was delighted that he could adjust these for real comfort, rare for him.

They fold for carrying around easily which pleased him immensely.

No cord clip so trailing under the wheelchair had to be fixed with a rubber band to bundle up the extra length. This worked well.

They appear to be sturdy -- time will tell
Basic. They work. Adapter is already attached if needed.
Son would have instantly complained if not elegant. He is not shy when it comes to earphones.

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

These headphones are cheap but I knew that getting in. WIthin the first weekend of use the right ear piece stopped working, which in my case is OK because I'm deaf in my right ear. For someone with a normal hearing arrangement this could be a huge stumbling block. I use them for watching television programs on my computer at work. The closed ear muffs work well enough at blocking out noise and the fidelity is adequate for my purposes. Critical listening for a mix would probably be a disappointment. They fold up well for easy storage. They work well enough for me but would probably be a drag for anyone else.

    Bought these from Stupid deal of the day. For the price how could I go wrong. Boy was I surprised. Uncomfortable, dull sounding, very little bass and hurt my ears after just a few minutes of use. The only good thing about them was the long cord. I have a cheap pair of another brand that beat these hands down. Save your money buy something else.
