I've had mine for three or four years and have had minimal issues with them. The comment about the cable being cheap is a laugh since you supply the cable for it. In fact, that's one of the things I really like about them besides the sound and the isolation: you don't have to worry about the cable going bad because it's easily replaceable. My one negative would be the same thing that happens to every Marshall I've ever owned: the volume pot gets scratchy- that's the cause of the drop-outs that others mention. You just spray it with some tuner cleaner and it's good.

These seem to eliminate noise pretty well (haven't tried them in the room with my drummer yet, which is what I bought them for), but I have three issues: the first is that there already seems to be a short in the cable, the right speaker cuts in and out. Second, the "reference speakers" sound awful to me. Third, these things are deathly uncomfortable to wear. They have the gripping power of a freaking vice, even at their loosest setting, and it isn't 15 minutes before the headache sets in that won't go away for hours later. Also, they weigh a bloody TON; I literally had sore neck muscles the day after I tried to record wearing them for a couple of hours. The "liquid filled" padding makes your skin sweat and chaffe, and it collapses enough to let your ears drag against the speakers, which ads to the physical misery. So, unless I have to work with a drummer, I will not ever wear these uncomfortable, tinny sounding beasts.

Don't buy these!

By Dan-Xgj-X

from Los Angeles

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

I've had these for a couple of years. They worked for just long enough for me to not be able to return them. I Have the same problems everyone does with them. The right channel fuzzes out, the volume pot has dead spots, and most importantly the 1/8th inch jack is hypersensative and impossible to find a replacement for. I've looked for a metrophones website, or any place where I could try to order parts to fix it myself, and it just does not exist! If you buy these you have a ticking time bomb of uselessness on your hands.

Junk

By One Louder

from Myrtle Beach

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

I agree with previous reviews. The fluid leaked out of mine and I have a speaker out and they shorted out constantly. Volume control was glitchy. Which all of this is unfortunate because I believe structuraly, the headphones would survive a nuclear blast. I have searched the internet to find a way to return them to have them refurbished with no luck. So now they lay there alone in their silent, disadvantageous glory. Reflecting with bitter joy their former greatness and dreaming of a tomorrow that was not to be.

Studio Kans headphones are not good.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

I have given these to drummers who record at my place. They and I have the same issues as others with these Studio Kans headphones, heavy, uncomfortable, rattles and distortion, bad sound when they don't distort, cheap cord, sound cuts out completely, ear pads collapse, etc. They do a good job of isolation, but so do earplugs. Save your money for something better. Not a good buy.

Kans for the trash can

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

Initially I thought they were great. Only used to monitor the board while recording live music at clubs and Studio settings. I treated them with respect. They now have all the symptoms others mention. Jack is easily displaced, One side drops out and can be brought back by "jiggling" the volume knob. Static can be bad if you move around. Took them back to where purchased to be told they would not do it for me since the customer support was very negative, but if I pursisted I could get them fixed.

The sound quality is awful and sound won't come out of the right ear. The static is unbearable. The jack comes loose very easily.

Do Not Buy

By David-o_ve1

from Maui, HI

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

Just pluged in the head phones right out of the box and the right speaker keeps cuting out! There is a seperate cord that attaches to the head phones and I wiggeled it and the volume knob on the head phones ands it didn't help. The tonal quality of the headphones are awful they distort and both speakers have cut out on me. I cannot make mic adjustments because the headphone speakers crackle and cutout at regular recording and play back levels!!!! These were a waste of money and my time. You do not get what you pay for with these headphone.

Pretty good phones

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

These phones have very good isolation to them. They are one of the more rugged phones you will see, although one speaker went out on me.(I have had them for two years though.) They have a decent tone quality to them. The metronome is not loud enough for extremley loud playing.

Great buy

By Cramer

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Metrophones Studio Kans Isolation Recording Headphones:

Great isolation for drumming. I couldn't hear a damn thing with a surround sound setup 3 feet from my head with 300W. With these I hear everything plus my playing. It also saves my hearing from the drums and not having to turn the accompanying music up so loud. The metronome is also nice. I also like the little things like the adjustability and detachable wire. Great buy!
