Pro Produces clean and balanced sound that is good enough for general listening
These headphones are by no means audiophile grade, but produce sound that can be considered as okay for casual music listening or for watching movies/videos and the like. Bass and mids are present, but they really do not stand out. The clarity of the highs is okay, and can provide some detail but definitely is not crystal clear, with some minimal hiss present. Volume is also on the okay side, but these headphones are not able to pump out max volume levels without distortion. So while these headphones are not suitable for critical listening, these are good enough if you simply just want to hear the audio.
Con If you are picky about audio, then the audio output of these headphones may not be good enough for you
If you are looking for high-quality sound out of a budget pair of headphones then this probably is not the pair for you. The sound that these headphones produce is okay for general listening, but if you are looking for thumping bass, lively mids or crystal clear highs then you will want to pass up on these.
