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

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.

Comments about Gear One G40DX Headphones:

These headphones are Dollar Store quality, they should be given away free with each and every order. Theres nothing to say good about them except the cushioning seems to be the best part of this product.

Lite and Nice

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

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.

  • Flimsy Construction
  • Uncomfortable

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.
