If you use them as 3.5mm corded, you won’t be happy. If you use them as Bluetooth and take a little time to set up the app as you like it, then they are great.

Though it’s certainly not the cleanest sound I’ve heard at around 100 bucks, it is an ideal bass-head’s headphone at this price point. And perhaps, even those with more moderate tastes will still appreciate the warmth offered by the low frequencies.
