Too worth it...

October 10, 2013

I really thought the price was too much for what i thought was some over-hyped cheapy plastic name brand headphones. I mean just cuz jay z makes music doesn't mean you can slap his name on a headphone and make it top notch... But these things buuummmp, and not just in that ridiculously overpowering way that the the beats push base. They sound really nice and get as loud as i need them to. Now im looking at the price i paid as a steal!
