Sound

The sound quality is moderate. They lack a bit of clarity for instruments and vocals. However any range is not drowned. They sound neutral with a right amount of bass, mids, and highs. I like that they do not sound sharp, but rather warm. The soundstage is not spacious to feel the music like live but they still sound decent for casual listening.

Connectivity

The audio cable is the only option of connection to other devices as it is built in. Its length of 120 cm/3.9 ft is optimal for comfortable use without tangling.

Comfort and design

These headphones are incredibly light with 120 g/4.2 oz and very portable being folded in a smaller size with the swiveling cups. The headband is adjusted to fit various head sizes but it seems to me to lack padding. Still it does not feel tight. The cups are softly padded. Unlike over ear, the on-ear design does not make ears so hot and sweaty. But they are unstable on the head for active use like sports.
