I just bought a pair in black (cost 30p more but money is NO OBJECT when it comes to expressing my personal style).
Got them delivered to an Amazon Locker which is free even under £10. They're great for the price and certainly outdo earphones costing twice as much and probably more. For those who are having trouble with them falling out, here is a picture showing the correct way to wear them. I actually find I can't get the damn things out when I need to hear what someone is saying (hardly ever worth the effort in any case).

A perfect fit. Great sound given the price. I have 2 pairs. Often see them at or around this price (£3.97). An on-going bargain . . .
terrible headphones wasted my money
These headphones are utter pap. The sound isn't bad but it's a fallacy that they're being sold as 'noise cancelling'. They're heavy on the ear, the cable isn't very long and they look ridiculous. The 'phones that came with your smartphone will sound better and be lighter and less conspicuous. These are a waste of money at half the price.

I bought these a year ago. Fantastic sound quality for the cash, unbeatable at anywhere near the price.

Even in Winter, though, the synthetic earpads make my ears uncomfortably hot after about 30 minutes use. Watching a 2 hour DVD with these cans is an unbearable prospect, which is a shame as the sound quality is so good.

I'd happily pay more if they were available with 'breatheable' ear pads.

Can anyone recommend headphones that are genuinely comfortable for hours at a time? Sub £50.

Whle not in you price range I did get the sony v6 DJ cans which had pleather replacable ear pads.
Looking on headfi i found that some velour beyer ear pads fitted the V6 and they are comfy.
It cost me something like £20 for the velour pads.

Maybe search on headfi for reviews on this can and if other brands of ear pads would fit?

These look ridiculous, especially, like ped, as I have a massive head. I would never wear these outside the house, but the sound is really good, for the money.
Got a pair of these at my desk. I'm using them with a Dragonfly DAC, and I'm very happy with the sound from them. They're also very comfortable.

I will say, though, due to the way they expand to fit my generously proportioned cranium, I do worry about looking a bit like a Cyberman.

Buy these for their sound, not their looks.

So what are the best stands? Any links you can share for the better ones please??

Not sure which are the best, I'm still looking as well. I had the ones from OP and the base is small so if you have heavy speakers they tend to sway a bit if using at full hight. Lowering the extension arm helps but was not an option in my room.

However, these are very good quality stands. If you need a stand like this and your speakers are not too heavy then you will not find anything as good as these at this price (was £9-10 when I purchased).

Stands OK, but only for small speakers, tried to fit tannoy VR's on them and... to heavy:( and not stable. Will return product.

Your opinion is as valid as any one of the 118 reviews at...

Not really, not all people are equal in their knowledge or abilities. My opinion might be less valid, or more, you don't know. Also my hearing might be better or worse you don't know. Also the build quality may vary between individual units.

I have used a lot of headphones in the £10-£60 category, inner ear, over the ear, in-ear etc. and I still stand by what i said. Worth the price, not worth the RRP.

These have great vocals, and at £16 probably worth it, as most headphones in that same price range are no better, probably worse. But any bargain hunted decent brand model over £45 like sony, shure beats these in my book. The treble and the bass is just too muffled, distant, as the vocals are pushed out and emphasised too much. The reason everyone might be saying they are as good as other £100 headphones might be due to those £100 headphones being poor. Price is no guarantee of quality, you still have to bargain hunt.

If you don't want to spend more than £16 then no problem in buying these. Just don't think you are getting a £70 headphone, when you are not.

Bought these months ago and just loving them, especially listening to something like this (which I now do often!).
I got a brand new one boxed (only opened & tried once) that I don't need due to owning better alternatives for sale - £15.

Located: South West London, if anyone's in need of one and would like to save the hassle in ordering online and save some money off the going rate + postage, then hit me up a message and I'll see what I can do.

They're no use to me but are AMAZING headphones at a ridiculously low price and have been compared to sounding alike to £100+ ones.

Got these from the last time they were on here for £15 or so.

Non - breathable material and very tight so uncomfortable after a while. Went back to my ancient sony MDR v300s.

I can second that.
Not sure why they are called "over-the-ear" because to me they are "on-the-ear" (unlike the Sennheiser HD200 I was hoping to replace which are "over-the-ear"); they are pressing on the ear and become uncomfortable to the point where they're giving me a headache within about an hour; I would not recommend these to anyone without trying them for fit first.

Monoprice have no plans to sell replacement tips in this country, so if you run out, that's it!
I'm just worried because I don't know how much support Monoprice offers if you have trouble or how durable their tablets are. Wacom tablets also have problems but they're the more recognised brand so have more support and compatibility with programs. I can't find anything about Monoprice regarding Windows 8 and Photoshop 6, other than Illustrator not being compatible.

That is silly. How are you getting on with your tablet? Any positives or issues?

It's working fine. Nothing to complain about really other than what I've already said. Can't say if it's better or anything than other tablets since I've never used one before and I'm still getting the hang of it; that is knowing where to draw corresponding to the screen and getting used to the lack of friction and flexibility you'd usually get with a pencil on paper.

I did have a look and thought wow its dropped in price but then I looked at its previous prices and it went from £30 odds to £124 for a day r so then dropped back to the £30 odds again. Bit undecided now :(
Not voted either way yet.

Ah, I've just noticed the price in the USA is $50 (~£35), so why did they used to charge UK customers a ridiculous £140 according to Amazon?! Now I'm really undecided on whether to get a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet instead.

As with a lot of Amazon products, the RRP is just silly, it's there to have a maximum. It's never been sold at that price, the highest it's been is £125 which is third-party so likely it went out of stock and some other third party put its price up while it was. It happens. However, Monoprice have always sold these at £34 - £38.

"I doubt anyone will think the mostly black-plastic pair of headphones is a luxury design, but the 8323s aren't the least bit flimsy or poorly made. They feel more ruggedly built than Bose's new OE2 headphones ($149.95). The 8323 model's earcups swivel from side to side and up and down, so the padded ear cushions conform to your head shape better than many far more expensive headphones"

http://www.head-fi.org/products/monoprice-mhp-839/reviews/5568

"I actually prefer their sound to that of the AudioTechnica M50. They are smoother to listen to with more mids, yet are still very bass capable. For $20, the MHP-839 is every bit as good as the $150 M50 in sound. So if you're looking for a budget closed performer, the MHP-839 is it. It's a really good budget headphone that has the sound of far more expensive headphones."

http://thinkboxly.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/monoprice-unboxing-and-review.html

"Comparable sound to $100+ headphones, convenience in flexibility and one-sided removable 3.5mm cables, and decent comfort all serve to make the Monoprice MHP-839 DJ-Style Pro Headphones without a doubt the best deal on the headphone market right now. While you may get metal construction, even greater comfort, additional noise cancellation, and slightly better sound from a $200 set, there's almost no reason to buy something else if your budget limits you to spending much less. Casual listeners can easily afford these headphones, and audiophiles and DJ's will even find the quality and features agreeable.

Seriously: if you're looking for a new pair of headphones, or you aren't but all you have ever known is throwaway earbuds, pick these up and treat yourself to some real sound. You won't be disappointed."

I have now been using these for a few days and I have changed my mind.

They do fit perfectly but they are way too tinny. Some tracks are horrid to listen to.

Oh well, only a fiver wasted.
I'm not an expert, just a general listener.

Mine arrived this morning and for me, for general mp3 listening, these are SUPERB.

Not a lot of bass, I agree but the all round sound is so much better tghan general earphones.

And they fit perfectly. I must have funny shaped ears.

Very happy.
buybuybuy
Do NOT believe the 'enhanced bass' statement. These are quite the opposite and have almost zero bass. Significantly worse than Pound Shop earphones. Might be okay for telephone conversations as the mid range is very clear but no microphone so you'll need a third party one. Don't waste your money ... They weren't worth the £3.81 I paid a few weeks ago.

Couldnt have put it better myself. I agree 100%. Cannot understand why people recommended these in the first place.
Im going to be honest....got 2 of these last time round becasue the majority of people were recommending them. I was dissapointed. Firstly these have absolutley no bass in them, its false marketing. In my opinion not much better than the £1 headphones you can buy from the pound stores these days. I cannot understand why people are recommending these.
Acceptable sound quality. Poor isolation from external noise. A small amount of sound leakage can be heard by someone sitting next to you. OK for under a fiver.

Can you forward the url address of the 2m active cable please?

Hey, no the 2m was just a bog standard USB cable, not active at all sorry.... why would you need an active 2m? USB spec allows 5m?

My printer is about 4m away from my laptop. I have a USB extension cable which I use when printing but believe it or not the scan does not work. To scan I need to move my laptop closer and disconnect the USB extension cable. I thought a 2m active extension might do the trick. Otherwise I will buy the 5m from Amazon.

Ahh I see. If I come across a shorter active I will PM you. Other thing to try (have done in past) is to get a powered USB hub - locate it at the printer and just 2m normal usb between hub and PC :)

still got to wrap them round your ears in a stupid way .. heat for the price though

I'm using mine without wrapping them round, they kind of 'twist' into my ears and stay there safe and sound.

*full disclosure: I do appear to have weird ears.
Welcome Mr Spock.
The overall 'fit' of these earphones is the single most common point of contention.

The new Pink and White models come with rubberised cords rather than the fabric type on the Silver and Black but I do not know how this affects the tangle-ability of them.
We're all entitled to our opinion, of course, and we will have different experiences of earphones, but I have had better performance from other earphones under £20: at least, earphones where I can hear some bass. These are fine for listening to speech, which thankfully I do a lot of, but for music they are woefully lacking at the bottom end. I don't expect any better for £5.31, but I did hope for better having read other reviews, especially on Amazon's site.

The set supplied with my new mobile were much better till I trod on them (!) and iPod phones (about £9 on Amazon) give a much fuller sound.

One thing I have noticed is how easily these Monoprice ones tangle.

Edited By: droopsnout on Apr 22, 2013 09:01
These ones do come with multiple tips now. Bought them, gotta say they're great earphones for the money, and beats anything under £20, which is about how much I'm willing to spend on earphones with my habit of losing.
You can get all these models including Comply S-400 ear tips for a better fit on eBay/Amazon... but not at these prices!

Oh reeeeeeeet thats what the 3.5mm is for at the back of the set top boxes labled IR... thanks guys.
I have one of these and Im clearing the house was going to bin it, if anyone wants it PM me
Its for tv sender boxes, you have 2 boxes one links to your sky box for example and sends the signal to the receiver in your bedroom or wherever you choose to have it.
No. It's just to extend the range of the IR signal - you could theoretically hide a set top box or similar away in a cupboard or whatever, and have this sat on top of the cupboard, allowing you to use the remote without the actual device being visible.

Regardless, you've gotta spend a minimum of £20 to be able to order this.

Not voting cos I don't know enough about these to know whether or not it's a good price.

The voltage drop is entirely dependent on the cross-sectional area of the cable. For half a volt drop at half an amp it's 50mΩ per metre (20m total) which looks like it can be achieved with a core of about 0.4mm^2 cross-sectional area (copper!). I doubt it's that thick but divide by five for a 100mA device and I'm sure it's good enough.

I have a 10m one from eBay which works fine with a web-cam even with another 5m extension on the far end.

I can't get around how this could possibly work, it would require another power source as you cannot defy the laws of physics, it will only supply the amount of power a USB port can provide and the official specification is milliamps, some devices supply less than the official recommendation and some ignore it and supply a lot more.
It isn't breaking the laws of physics because it is not supplying any more power than the USB port is is plugged into. That is not its purpose. Its purpose is to restore the signal loss in the data lines.

Granted that may be the purpose of the active component, but the voltage drop over such a length will be quite significant. Fine for devices that require it's own PSU but anything host powered I cant see it working.

I can't possibly see this working on a Raspberry Pi.

Great for some geeky bondage as someone suggested or a geeky washing line lol!

Bought a pair when they were under £4 - very impressive. Still good value at current price £4.82 however Amazon have the updated model 9927's in at £5.31 with free delivery. These are the same as the older 8320's but have a matt black rubberised finish which helps to keep them in the ear. They normally ship with 3 sets of earbuds but there's no mention of this on Amazon.

got a pair at 3.81.

As others have said the sound quality is fantastic.

The fiddling around is annoying - but worth it.

around a fiver is still a great price.
I paid £4.53 for a pair when this deal was posted on 24th Jan.

Since then, according to camel, they're more often below a fiver than above, so maybe worth holding off on a purchase if it's not urgent.

PS: Best in-ear headphones that I've ever bought, including pair of Sennheiser that cost me around a ton :)

Price regularly gets lower than this, as seen by people buying them for under £4 only a couple of weeks ago and no doubt will be the same again, so voted cold.

I got the £3.81 offer as well and I don't like them - the way you put them in your ears is stupid. i wore mine once for about 10 minutes and switched back to my old panasonics

i guess the way you wear them is only to prevent them from falling off, at first they feel a bit weird but i think you can get use to them and i agree with rolling stone the sound is really good :D

yeah i get that, but to keep farting around with the cord over the top of your ears is just silly. my panasonics fit in my ears perfectly fine and never fall out unless one of my flailing arms catches the cord and pulls it out ..

ahh i see, i think this deal wont be as good i guessed for most then :/

COLD, the most expensive they have ever been is £16.99. Saving £1.14 is hardly a deal.Price History below:http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Monoprice-Premium-Hi-Fi-Style-Headphone/product/B007SP2CO2
But there are the CHEAPEST they have ever been. That is the point of the site, to find the cheapest available deals. What is the basis of your cold vote, considering this?
They might be the cheapest they have ever been but that doesn't make them a great deal, percentage wise it would be like listing a 50p Mars for 47p and expecting a reaction. Not a deal
Except that isn't really a deal on a Mars Bar. These are headphones that are being compared in quality to headphones costing 4/5 times this amount. This makes them a hot deal.Being cheap and being a hot deal isn't the same thing. These are the sort of deals that make this site great.
Except these are not quality headphones, they were never the price listed and have dropped about £1.00 from the price they have been for the last 6 months.

I'm not on about the RRP, I'm on about the reviews which compares the sound quality to headphones 4/5 times the price of these.

I don't care about RRPs and price reductions/price history. I care about the quality of the product in relation to the price. Even at £20 these would be a hot deal because of quality in relation to the price.

I know quality/price is subjective...but that's why we have voting buttons. If it was simply about a percentage reduction or being the cheapest price available, there would be no need for voting, an automated Pricerunner type site can do that.

Every single company/biased reviewer says their product is comparable to others costing 5 times as much. I wish people would actually give examples rather than pulling out "facts" out of thin air.

after taking the plunge kind of regret buying them.

Probably the best budget headphones under £20, but nowhere near £50 valuation. In my opinion the best headphones I ever used were the ones that came with my £40 2gb sony mp3 player.

Monoprice hifi is too vocal heavy for me, everything else sounds flat and in the background. With no life or punch in the music, same with bass and especially the treble. The vocals sound very nice though, so maybe people who listen to such music will like them more.

Given the difference in reviews here, maybe the build quality of these isn't consistent and everyone is getting a different experience. It would also explain why online reviews rate them so highly if for instance monoporice went about and made sure the good build quality ones, where delivered to all the big online magazines and then manufacturing build quality was dropped after than.

These sound a LOT better than my previous pair of over-ears which were Philips SHO8801's, but I don't think they quite match the AKG 450's. The sound from these is a little punchier, but less well-rounded. I'm burning them in now to see if that makes any difference (Radioactive on repeat for 24 hours :p) but they're fantastic headphones for the money, and like I said, they are bettered by £40 headphones (but let's not forget that the AKG's are ahead of their league too!)

Back in stock @ £15.85...
Been using mine for a day now, very happy
got these delivered yesterday! i have to say these are probably the best headphones i've had!! i currently have 3 pairs

1. Denon (Classic Acoustic Luxury over-ear headphones)
2. Technics Over ear headphones
3. Denon On ear headphones (cheaper version of the Classic Acoustic)

and i have to say these are on par with the Denon Classic Acoustic which cost me around £115!

These monoprice aren't as comfortable but they do the job for £16! well worth the money and very bassy!! :)

Need to figure out how I'm going to get £16.61 to place my order now :/

These are £27.34 cheaper than the AKG 450 what I wanted forever!

:O :O :O

The 451s are out now, I suggest you get them as they have a much better cable than the 450s :)

Yeah, I've noticed but £52! Too much for my budget at the moment but I wouldn't look elsewhere if I was going to spend this much.

I tried convincing someone on here the other day to purchase them but ended up buying some crap sonys lol -.- No point wasting time trying to talk some sense into people on here.


I know right, at least we have some sense! Yeah, £50 is pretty high, but if you wait long enough I'm sure you can get them for around £40 in about 2-3 months time.

worth checking the reviews

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing 4 Mar 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase
I bought these headphones shortly after buying the Monoprice Enhanced Bass Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earphones in a hope that they would have the same insides but in a more comfortable shell. They are not! Sound quality is poor.

Gave two stars as they are only £5. But check out reviews of Monoprice Enhanced Bass Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earphones before buying these.

100% agree with buybuybuy - worst earphones ever - if through laptop, phone, tablet, pc or Hifi - even with amplified bass, there is next to no bass, incredibly tinny - better sound from 99p stores ones!

I bought these thanks to this deal, but was hugely disappointed with their quality. I've been buying the Creative EP-630 for years now (they tend to break every couple of years) and they are so much better in terms of noise isolation and bass. Yes, I was wearing the Monoprice ones properly.

Hugely disappointed with a 4 quid pair of earphones? what were you expecting exactly?

EP-630's are almost 3 times more expensive.


I'm hugely disappointed too. Anything from Poundland is preferable to these. Sorry, but these are utter pants.
Mine arrived a couple of weeks ago, but only just tried them.

Really NOT IMPRESSED at all. Fit fine, comfortable and secure... but sound quality sucks. Very clear but very narrow range and just no depth at all - almost 'tinny' in fact.

Another problem is that external abrasion of the wires is amplified through the buds - so if you move at all and the wires rub on clothing etc, you get dull roar or boom - the nearest thing to Bass iv'e heard through these - and very annoying.

Very disapponted. I've tried many earphones, mostly budget from 99p to about £10. These are by far the worst I've ever owned for sound quality and the only pair that I've ever considered unusable.

I doubt that they are faulty because a fault would usually manifest in one ear not both.

I just can't see (or hear) what all the hype is about. I have not read this entire thread and therefore don't know what the consensus opinion is but I felt I should post my personal experience as a warning to anybody contemplating these.

EDIT: Seen a few posts now and realise that I'm not the only one who thinks these are rubbish.


Edited By: buybuybuy on Apr 13, 2013 11:58: update
Can only agree with a lot of other comments, very tinny output. So much so I have gone back to my senheissers.
But for the money were worth a punt..
Finally got mine. Have always hated in-ear, always preferring ear buds, they've always felt intrusive and awkward, and haven't found any that offered better sound quality, until now.
These have great sound quality, and a great fit. They are a little ugly, it'd've been better if they weren't so shiny to draw attention to the size of them, but otherwise they're comfortable and have great mid-range.

However, these have practically no bass. I have to turn up the software bass boosts to hear any at all. I hadn't expected them to compare to my over-ears, but even my ear buds have better bass quality.
