This is the best headphone i have ever found. I have been using it for 1 year. While listening to it, I think the world has been paused. It has been so pleasant to hear songs and music from this headphone. It's price has been worth its quality. It feels like i am lost in virtual world of music by using these headphone. So, i will recommend it and give it a very positive review.

Pros

  • Feels like losing in virtual world of music.

Cons
