These are very similar to the famous Sony MDR-7506 headphones, with slightly less brightness and clarity of higher frequencies. They remind me a lot of Tascam's TH-300X headphones (which you can get for as low as 35 on a Stupid Deal of the Day) in terms of sound quality, bass response, and construction.
I got these headphones for 15 on a Stupid Deal of the Day and for that price these are an unbeatable deal. For the regular price, however, you're better off just getting a pair of Sony MDR-7506s. But If you can get these headphones on sale for anything less than 40, get at least 2 pairs and you definitely will not regret it. They're the perfect cheap solution for providing everyone in your studio with an identical pair of good quality headphones. If I was to start all over again building my recording studio, I would get one pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50Xs for tracking and mastering and 5 pairs of these headphones for other musicians to use during recording and jam sessions.
Construction-wise, these are super lightweight, yet very solid feeling, more solid than the 7506s. So if they're dropped on carpet, or even tile, no big deal. They're also very comfortable. The ear pads are replaceable and I imagine the cheap faux leather will crack over time. But again, for now they are very comfortable as is.
To note - I didn't properly break-in these headphones. I just took them out of the box and sampled them with 2 friends. We compared them against my MDR-7506s and my Audio Technica's ATH-M50Xs (which was perhaps an unfair comparison for any headphone because they're in a league of their own in terms of price and quality). I used my Alesis 6-channel headphone amplifier connected to my iPhone as the input. Both of my friends were totally shocked that I only paid 15 for them because of how good they sounded and how well built they are. So who knows how much better they can get over time and/or with a better headphone amplifier.

Over my many years I have always been surprised at the good sound quality from most any (even the cheapest) headphone or even ear buds. When I first listened to these I kept fiddling with the plug to make sure the connection was clear. I compared to another pair of Sony's (not expensive). The MGs are much like when you hear a stereo from another room. Not really muffled but clarity and ranges are REALLY lacking. I am NOT over discriminating, I am not a techie sound critique. I am still thinking of returning. You will be cheating yourself if you are listening to music. I rarely write reviews and have thought carefully to what I am writing. They are comfortable.

    Comments about Musician's Gear MG900 Studio Headphones:

    I bought these on Stupid Deal Of The Day. They are good for that low price. But horrible for the retail value they normally try to sell them at. Exactly the same as a couple other headphones. They all come from the same factory, but with different markings put on for the different companies (Marantz, Tascam, MG).

      Comments about Musician's Gear MG900 Studio Headphones:

      Bought these to replace a pair of AKG headphones my daughter "borrowed" to listen to her music on her phone. They are clear, but certainly not audiophile quality cans. Bass freqs are not well defined, and treble freqs lack real dynamics. The listening experience isn't bad, it's just not GREAT. These are inexpensive headphones and I didn't expect top tier performance from them. My daughter likes the long cord, the light weight and the comfy earcups.

        Comments about Musician's Gear MG900 Studio Headphones:

        I've had my share of poor quality headphones as well as professional gear. This product actually went far beyond what I consider flat out useless. I had to continually run to other sources repeating the phrase "maybe if I try it here it'll sound okay"... well it didn't... It didn't to a point where I had to wonder in what universe did these people think they could sell this product to people with ears? It's a disappointment to put it mildly.

        Feel great on the ears and have a nice long uncoiled cord... BUT
        The sound is bass heavy without definition in the midrange. Not useable for studio mixing or music listening.
        Best application is to hear TV late at night. You'll never get a good mix with these.
        Oh yeah, they were inexpensive... and cheap.

        Comments about Musician's Gear MG900 Studio Headphones:

        Being I've been around music for some 45 plus years playing & just for listening pleasure, I also wanted a some nice phones for watching & cranking up DVD's late at night. I never had anything more than 2 bills of headphones nor needed such. But picked up a couple of these on the great SDOTD bargain and took the chance & have to say a decent bargain & sound as good as any I've had around a bill or so! comes with both size plugs & about 10' straight cord, so I bought an addition ext. cord for listing in bed also, etc. Seems to be built fairly sturdy of todays standards. Cups do not turn but the do flip to outside for DJ's or single ear monitoring. Pretty cool overall, comfortable and sound good across spectrum. Hadn't had long, just hope they hold up! If your watching your budget, you could do a lot worse! Get Ya's some!

            First time I used this piece of junk, it didn't work. You know when you have a really old set of headphones and the wiring starts to break a part and you have to wiggle the wire near the adapter socket to get it to work. Yup, happened to me. Sad thing was, the headphones were brand new.

            Very cheaply made. Stay away from this junk.

              I use these earphones for working out, listening to music while working at the computer, and when I want to play my guitar silently at home. It is lightweight, folds up to a small size, and has decent sound. Cord is eight feet long, which is a plus for using with my guitar and amp, but I have to bind up the cord when I am working out and listening to iPod. Cord length may be an issue for some, but for flexibility, i' rather have a long cord than a short one. If these earphones last for an acceptable time, I would say that they are a very good value and I would buy them again. I gave this product four stars because there are higher quality (and much more expensive) earphones for studio use, but these are very good general purpose earphones.

              I use this pair when I'm tracking and it does what it's supposed to. I definitely would not use these for mixing, but they do serve as an extra reference. Overall okay sounding, not the best but I got this when it was on sale so I can't really complain about it.

              Good headphones for what I use them for. Casual listening to music on my laptop.Great value at a competitors matched price,But not even close to the regular they want for these.I own 3 different brands,AKG, Tascam and now MG. and ALL 3 of them have the sensitive weak wired plugs that will at times cut out . I'm very easy on my equipment . So sure they will last with care.As others have stated these are a little Bass heavy on the sound.But they do sound very good. My favorite part of them is the earpads fit my head like a glove and they are comfortable to wear for hours on end.All in all, For the sale price they are worth every penny.

                I needed a new set of headphones to replace a deteriorating set when these came available as a SDOD. Very good value. They have a good sound. I use them to practice my guitar silently through a practice amp while playing along to a CD (I live in a condo and this allows me to crank up the volume). I can't address their use in recording, as I don't use them that way. They do what I need to do very well and I would buy them again.

                            Arrived with a break in the cord near where the plug is. Returned.
                            I got an "insane" deal on them, but they ended up wasting my time. Even if they were in perfect condition, I'm not sure they're worth the "insane" price I paid. For certain, the list price is insane and I would not even pay 10% of that for these cheap phones.

                                  These headphones are a waste of money, even at a discounted price. These are very poor quality. The cable is really bad into the headphone plug is faulty. Does not play clearly in any devices unless the cable is held in a very specific position.

                                    These headphones are incredibly comfortsble, appear to have excellent build quality, and sound great. My only complaint is that the 3.5mm to 6.mm adapter that comes with them has some intermittent connectivity problems.

                                        We use the headphones for home recording as well as monitoring for live performances. They are a good quality piece of equipment without breaking the budget
