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.

    Comments about TASCAM TH-02 Recording Studio Headphones, 2-Pack, Black:

    I needed some headphones for practicing when I don't want to disturb the family. At 2 pair for less than one pair of other brands, I ordered them. Within an hour the first pair was rattling and buzzing. I unpacked the second pair. Within an hour that pair was doing the same thing. I was not pushing a lot of sound through these, I could have doubled the volume I was playing and still not think I was pushing even an inexpensive set of headphones. If it happened to one, I'd understand, and not worry about it. But when it happens to both, and I wasn't remotely abusing them, I can safely say these are not worth having, no matter how low the price.

    Comments about TASCAM TH-02 Recording Studio Headphones, 2-Pack, Black:

    As a retired Engineer I bought these for the price point. And for my Elderly Mother to listen to tv at night in bed.

    I would never use these in my studio.

    But if your on a tight budget, why not they will do fine for tracking, I would never use these for any kind of mixing-eqing..... as they are far from even near being accurate.

    For good studio cans I would look no further then akg 240's They have been around since the late 1970's and you can still get replacement parts for them! I have 5 sets and 2 sets of 270's My oldest set are from 1979 and they still work, but had to replace a few parts over the years- suspension - earpads ....!

    So if you want something that is REAL STUDIO, and will last your lifetime get AKG 240's! For singers, horn players, drummers I suggest AKG 271's as they are closed back, and will not bleed through mics.

      Comments about TASCAM TH-02 Recording Studio Headphones, 2-Pack, Black:

      These headphones perform better than one might expect, but they're not perfect. However, my review is based on the fact that they're inexpensive, and most would purchase these for a home studio, or some kind of small music setup.

      The headphones look nice; decently similar to something you'd see in a professional studio. I also think the sound quality is great. I've read some reviews that complain about the fit of the headphones, and the only problem I have is that you can't really wear them toward the back of your head without them sliding completely backward. Other than that, they fit nicely over my ears, and do a decent job of keeping out the outside noises.

      I think these headphones are perfect for a small home studio, or at least for someone just starting out. Not to mention you get two of them. I don't think you can really go wrong with these for the price.

      For those interested, I've primarly used these headphones with the M-Track Plus.

      These cans are a fantastic value at 30+tax for the 2-pack. They sound great and very similar compared with much, much more expensive headphones.

      If you can catch them for that price, don't think twice and buy as many as you need....maybe more for backup ;)

            The headphones worked great for a week. I would have preferred 1/4" tip but I had to use an adapter to get this to plug into the phone jack on my Tascam 2488neo. I'm sure the damage was caused on this end by someone bumping into the plug but now I have to pull it half way out of the adapter to make it work and then there's a lot of static. Gonna try the pair and cross my fingers.

              i bought these to replace my broken american audio dj headphones. (back-ups for my pioneer headphones) there are no other headphones on the market (that i've tried anyway) at this price that sound this good. on top of that they are essentially BOGO. Mid and high clarity is great even compared to much higher end equipment, and while they don't have a heavy bass response, it is adequate and also very clear.

              The price was right for 2 pair of these headphones. The only problem is they have no bass at all, nada. They are all midrange. That may be good for mixing and studio use but terrible for listening to music. There are plenty of headphones for half the price that blow these away for listening to music.
