When I initially came across the HP1973, I loved the retro look of the design. Based on the other previous reviews and the retail price of $59.95 from Kickers website, my expectations were pretty high. With the great price on Sonic for these headphones, I was down for a pair.

However, after listening to them in person, I would not recommend purchasing them unless you are more concerned about looks than performance. Although the styling and comfort of these headphones did not disappoint, the sound quality is worse than you would get from the Kicker In-Ear EB51 (which I also own and are sold here as well for less than $15). On the flip-side, if price is not such an issue, for $79, I would recommend picking up a pair of GRADO SR-60i (which I also own). The SR-60i will sound great throughout the range from lows-mids-highs compared to anything out there that is selling for double the asking price. This is especially true if you pair them with say an iPod or other portable device as the new "i" version is now intended.

Hope this helps!
