Value
Value refers to the quality of headphones (how they sound, how they're built, etc.) for the price.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Enclosed-Ear
Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable

Acoustic Principle

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.

Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.

Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

Closed

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
18 ohms
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
110 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
16 - 22000 Hz
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Yes
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
No

Great value indeed

December 31, 2014

Product came in super fast. I am quite happy with the overall sound quality. Considering that I have average ear size, the earpads are indeed quite small and barely fit my ears. If you wear glasses, they might be uncomfortable to wear after a while. Once again though, I am very happy with what my purchase.

Really great headphones

September 30, 2014

I love listening to classical music on this and still get my groove on at work with top 40 and alternative beats. The audio quality on this is superb.

Yes, the ear cups are small, I wear studs (smaller earrings) so that it fits more comfortably for me. If they fit you, you'll find that the cushioning is really comfortable, and I love the slider adjustment instead of the click-adjust. Only bad thing about that is that my hair gets caught in it sometimes if it's not tied back.

I wore these on a 3.5 hour plane ride and it did not make my head/ears sore, and it was still comfortable!

I really wish that the controller worked with Android phones too.

Found the best price online here at Sonic Electronix! Worth the investment. I've even compared it to the newest Bose Quiet Comfort 25 (great redesign, well thought out case layout and compartments, less "pressure" feeling with the noise cancelling when no audio is on) -- and while the momentums don't do noise canceling (i.e. you can still hear the hum of the plane which you'll end up tuning out anyway), it's still enough to lower external noises so you can enjoy your music/audio.

Love it :)

good quality but a little uncomfortable while wear a glasses

April 16, 2015

It's a pretty headphones and also perform good on the sound. but just as I mentioned in the title, it's a little uncomfortable to wear it when you also wear a glasses at the same time. PS, it's really warm to wear it during the winter, but I may not wear it during the summer==

Not only look beautiful but also sound amazing

March 8, 2015

I searched high and low for these headphones at a great deal and finally found them here at Sonic. I've had these for over a month and couldn't be happier. Sound is incredible when I am in the house or at work. If noise cancellation is critical, these might not be the best for you. I work in a very busy and noisy office and can hear a little background noise, but it's not distracting. Gorgeous sound and am extremely happy with these headphones!
