        I bought the "for-two" special, since if at three Lincolns apiece these "cans" didn't live up to the reviews I'd read elsewhere (as I seem to be the first to review them here), they would still be well worth the cost. My main reason for buying them was for recording vocals in my home studio, since they supposedly covered the ears entirely (please, someone set a standard for clearly distinguishing between "on-ear," "over-ear" and "around-ear" headphones - or, "super-aural," "super-arual" and "supra-aural"), and reviews by people claiming acoustic expertise reported these headphones as having well-balanced frequency representation. My favored headphones are Sennheiser SD-570, which have really clear, balanced sound but have (semi-?)open backs, thereby making them unfit for recording vocals due to bleed.

        When I opened the box, I thought, "These look like real headphones," as they resemble a pro studio model; smaller for the sake of portable-audio listening. I put them to the test by recording a vocal track with them, and noticed right away that the earpads required a bit of cramming for my ears to fit within them (designers, note: only a centimeter more in interior diameter would make these a lot more comfortable for most people), but I did appreciate the snugness in conjunction with the isolation they provided. Secondly, they sounded, to me, as good as, though not quite the same as, my Sennheisers.

        Most ridiculously-inexpensive headphones tend to sound too "midrangey" for my taste, and/or too bottom-heavy for the sake of those who want a boomin' system out of their iPods, but I am still getting used to the fact of how well they represent sub-bass frequencies without being boomy, make midrange clear without over-emphasis, and make the highs available without being shrill or tinny. Any genre of music would sound good through these headphones.

        My final analysis is that these headphones are perfect for home studios, DJs, casual listeners who appreciate sound quality, and portable listening by people accustomed to home audiophile headphones. I would give these headphones five, not four, stars if the interior diameter of the earpads were at least a centimeter greater.

        At this time I will not get into specifics on the audio quality - I haven't had the time for valid comparisons. Suffice it to say, my initial impressions are that they sound pretty good - nothing stood out to me as being bad.

        However, in many of the reviews I read prior to purchasing, people said that they were very comparable to professional headphones - and even likened them to the trusty Sony MDR-7506. Well, they aren't in that class for many reasons...

        1. They don't fit great. Whereas Sony's start out almost too snug and need breaking in, these feel like they are barely holding on.

        2. The feel cheap. Headphones are going to use a lot of plastic and man-made materials -- I get that. However, the plastic seems more flimsy and is even cheap-looking. Same with the vinyl padding.

        3. The size. I love the way the 7506's fold up and protect the ear pads. These just flatten a bit (not that much) by swiveling the ear pads. They take up considerably more room when packed.

        4. The plug. I thought it was nearly ubiquitous in quality headphones that they terminate in a gold-plated 1/8" plug and include a 1/4" gold-plated screw-on adapter. It seems like a great solutions that is simple and just works. These phones, though, decided on an even cheaper approach and cut another corner to save a few pennies. The adapter does not screw on, but merely plugs in. When plugging in, it did not produce a reassuring "snap" telling me that it is secure and will stay in place.

        Final Synopsis:

        Are they worth the crazy "two-fer" special and will the work for production? Yes.

        Is the audio quality sufficient? I think so, but this will take more time (and is quite subjective).

        Are they comparable to professional headphones? Only if you mean to compare them to see their deficiencies - they are not NEARLY equal.

        Are they worth the regular price? Probably. Okay for light use or to give to a kid that wears out headphones, maybe.

        If looking for professional headphones, get professional headphones instead. If look for a cheap pair of semi-decent headphones that look (from a distance) like professional headphones, these are for you.

          Work well as extra monitoring phones in a recording setting. Fairly good bass response and relatively smooth mids/highs. Can get a little harsh sounding after 3-5 hours, but very good value for the money. A steal for the SDOTD price.

            I got these as a STDOD. For the price it can't be beat. I needed some extra headphones. One to hang above my digital piano for noisless practicing and one for just monitoring when I am home recording (but not for mixing. If you want some good mixing headphones you need to invest more money). These sound fine for the job I need them for though. I have only owned them for a short time. I don't know how durable they will be in the long run, but so far no problems. For those of you complaining that they are made of plastic....Well, what where you expecting for that price? This is a good set of utility headphones. Great for practice and even for great just for everyday use like late night TV watching etc.

              For the price,I bought these as gifts and as spares for my mobile dj toolkit. Good quality although the over ear cuffs are a bit smaller than expected.
              Still worth it. Decent sound although I didn't push then much yet

              These are great! I got them for a stupid deal of the day and I was not dispensation. Why spend so much money on a garbage pair of beats audio when you can get better audio quality for less? They do max out at 75% gain on my interface however; which is very loud. Bottom line, you get the quality of sound but not necessarily quantity of sound.

                  These were a great price (cheap), which is why I bought them. One pair for my keyboard setup and one for my computer. The sound is clear. Bass isn't great but not bad either. They do tend to hurt my ears if wearing for an extended period of time. Also, on one pair the chord is starting to short out right at the connector.

                  I tried the TH-02 to replace my AKG folding cans I'd left on my last flight. I was very disappointed for in the past I had liked all previous Tascam products owned. I bought the two pack and had to try both because the first one was all high end, no warmth what so ever, incredibly uncomfortable, ditto for the second set of cans. Granted I've never owned Tascam phones, however, a lot of companies make good sounding headphones, I did buy the TH-200X two pack with the Live Wire headphone amp, well worth it. If your hearing is impaired and/or you like all high end, you might like these. Seriously, sometimes I'd wonder what the root was supposed to be, or is that a kick drum or muffled floor tom on the track. I played them all night and a day to see if they needed a breaking in period, this also had no effect. Like shoes they at least need to be great when you first try them on.

                    There is an old saying, "you get what you pay for" which in most cases still holds true even today. But in todays vast buyers paradise if you just shop around, read reviews, and know exactly what you want , you can get a little more than you pay for. These head phones do just that . Nice looking , a long cord, which I wanted, and best of all good sound. Now I am not gonna say you can fine tune mix with these cans, but they are more then capable of giving you a quick reference during mixing , have worked great for tracking and just plain sound great for the price point they are in. And when the idiot drummer steps on them , you wont be out much ! Buy em!
