The Gear One G900DX Headphones out of the box feel a bit on the cheaply made side. The pastic earpieces didn't make me feel real confident about what I was getting. I must admit I have gotten used to design. They are pretty comfortable to wear.

The real test for me was the sound quality. I put these G900DX headphones up against a pair of JVC headphones I had been using that were consumer grade, but I liked them well enough. The sound difference is very noticeable. The G900DX headphones were much more detailed than the JVC and had a strong bass response without the muddiness. For the price, I am very pleased with the product for the price and would recommend them.

It is hard to know how reliable they will be over time as I have only had them for two weeks. So far, these are fine. I am using them currently for recording in my basement studio. I am just using them to monitor playback for overdubs. They work great for that application. I have not and do not currently plan to use them in mixdown application.
Hey - They are headphones.
Quality seems OK - earpiece plastic feels cheap but in general seem fine.
great deal.

I am writing this because there was no review when I looked into these headphones.

Features i liked were that you could spin around each ear piece and it can rest on your ear so you can hear what your singing/saying. I have other ones that do this but these were more comortable than most ive tried so i leave it in the booth for singers.
weight wise its a little light. The sound quality is nothing special, kinda reminded me of skull kandy. Its fine for giving musicians a mix for recording, but i would not mix with these.
For the price, theres many better headphones to buy, grados are nice for a better price if you want a clearer mix.

Not Bad For a Freebie, But Certainly Not Pro-Level Gear

By Zeb

from Western US

See all my reviews

Comments about Gear One G900DX Headphones:

I got these free when I bought a microphone, so from that perspective I feel like I got my money's worth. But if I'd paid anything close to the asking price, I'd definitely be exchanging them for something better.

The main problem is the sound quality. The bass is too strong and the mids and highs are mushy and lack detail. Even comparing them to my old $25 Sennheiser HD-201's, the difference is like night and day. Overall, they just don't sound crisp and open like professional monitoring headphones should be.

One point in their favor is build quality. They look like they're modeled on (copied from?) the Audio-Technica ATH-M30's, and I found them comfortable, as well as capable of blocking a fair amount of outside noise. Also, the cord is long and flexible and doesn't tangle easily. I've only had them for a few days, so I can't speak to their long-term durability, but so far they seem fairly well built.

In my opinion, these headphones are not suitable for use in situations where accuracy matters, such as studio monitoring, but they might be handy to have around as a backup pair, or to use in the field where you just need to check recording levels or something.

    These thing are not made that well . The first time I put them on there was static. I thought I would get these because they were the "stupid deal of the day", but I am the one who feels stupid for purchasing these headphones. I didn't expect them to be top of the line but I did expect good basic sound quality and they fail miserably.

    These thing are not made that well or they were cheaply put together. The first time I put them on there was a short in the cable and static.

    Good for the price

    Comments about Gear One G900DX Headphones:

    I'm getting a variety of low cost headsets for musicians to wear when I'm recording them. For this purpose, these are very good for the price. Not too much spill and a nice long cable that is not tiny and flimsy with 1/4" adapter.
    Sound leans toward the low frequencies in general. One of the best headsets I've used in this price range. A little muddy, a little colored, not a lot of detail in the mid and upper end, but again, for this price, pretty nice sound. Relatively efficient, too. I've only used these a few hours, but so far they should do fine for studio tracking on a budget. I would not dream of using them to mix on, but fine for tracking monitors.

          Very comfortable. Great sound. Best feel, fit, sound of any headphones I've owned (dating back to 70's Koss Pro 4AA). There is no comparison to any of the "buds" around this house or to some higher priced, noice-cancelling headphones from other manufacturers/sources.

            Comments about Gear One G900DX Headphones:

            I practice guitar in my workroom. I have a Squier Stratocaster and a Fender amp. When someone else is at home, my amp is too loud. I looked at all of the headsets on the Musician's Friend website and didn't want to spend too much. When I saw this deal I thought it was too good to be true. Turns out I was right. I first took them out of the box and they looked good enough and were light and comfortable when I put them on. But when I plugged them in, the left channel was coming in and out and was scratchy when it worked. I thought it might be my amp connection so I tried in my computer. Same problem. I had to send them back. I have since purchased some Bose AE2's and couldn't be happier.
