Best Headphones for cheap February 17, 2015
Reviewer: Samuel Chang from Chesterfield, MO United States  
I bought these headphones 5 months ago and it's still sounding great. the sound is so clear its ridiculous. the bass isn't as good as beats headphones but for the price, this is above average. this is great for audiophiles on a budget too. the frequency response covers all that a person can hear (10hz - 20,000hz)

Muy buenos, pero podrían ser mejores February 28, 2013
Reviewer: Luis Adasme from Santiago, Metropolitana Chile  
Sonido excelente en relación precio vs calidad, bajos nítidos sin llegar a la saturación, medios potentes, agudos justos, gran sonido para escuchar instrumentos acústicos.
Mi primera impresión fue con un archivo mp3 y la verdad no me gustó mucho, pero luego lo probé escuchando In a Dream de Gretchen Parlato en formato Flac y mi apreciación cambió rotundamente, ahora si la calidad se nota, quedé impresionado con el rendimiento, efectivamente suenan a audífonos de precio mucho mas alto.
El único contra que le veo es al diseño estructural, se ven anticuados, y lo otro que es mas importante es que la banda que queda sobre la cabeza es demasiado delgada y despues de un rato provoca molestia e incluso dolor, claramente no se pensó en el diseño de esta parte y quedó al azar, es como si le faltara una pieza en esta zona.
De todas maneras son unos muy buenos audífonos.

*Insane* Price / Performance Ratio June 8, 2012
Reviewer: Brandon S. Adkins from Lynchburg, VA  
When I first got them, I could not believe my ears. I still can't to this day. The claim of "class leading clarity" is no marketing term, it is the full truth.

Slightly recessed but pleasant mids, very crisp and clear highs, and solid but controlled bass. You can't ask for anything better at this price point. Vocals come through strong and pleasant, especially over acoustic guitars (which absolutely shine on these 'phones). These definitely lend themselves towards acoustic/natural sounds, but don't get me wrong, rock and metal fare pretty well.

The HT-21's strongly rival my other $75-$150 headphones, and they are light and portable, and still feel well-built. They exceed similarly priced headphones by a wide margin. I'm not sure how they get away with it! I use them daily. They are loud but do not distort at high volumes, and such sensitivity makes them perfect for phones and portable players that have limited output. What are you waiting for again?

An english perspective June 8, 2012
Reviewer: ed from england  
These are good headphones more important than the low bass and bright treble is the dynamic range and the presentation of plucking strings they are capable of being musical reminds me of mission speakers

Love These Headphones June 8, 2012
Reviewer: Tiiria from KS  
I just got my headphones in the mail and the first thing I did was plug them in and play my favorite song, Paradise Circus by Massive Attack. It's a song with gorgeous bass, but all the headphones I've had before haven't done it justice. And these headphones play it beautifully, with the same amazing level of performance on all the other songs.
Foldableness is also nice.. I'm just so in love with the bass.
