Found 4th Jun 2016
Well reviewed headphones at the RRP of £150. At £26 these are an amazing steal!

Review: expertreviews.co.uk/tvs…iew

They are on-ear headphones. Come with two detachable cables (one with a mic). Also available in black for £30.

Great price. Been on this price during previous sales too.

Amazon have them for £40 so I guess this is hot!
Good price, but the RRP is way off the mark. Besides, shows as 'was £39.99' on Argos website.

Heat added anyway. Great headphones too

Lol 150 RRP is insane oO...Ive tried them and this is the price they should be around
Great deal, just reserved! Heat from me
Got these free with phone, they're OK. Slightly better quality than a 20 quid sennheiser but I hope nobody paid RRP
Nice headphones in my opinion and definitely worth this price.... I got some last time they were reduced.

​I've tried them and didn't really like them, if someone bought for the rrp I bet they are in tears.

pointless comment
when Ferrari 250 GTO was first sold it cost $18,000 - in 2014 one sold for $38,115,000

Very good quality headphones, both build and sound quality are very good for this price.
Totally agree that the original price is way over the top, but most items these days seem to have ridiculous RRP tags attached to them.

Thanks for that... I'd say it was pretty relevant considering that is the price they were when they were being reviewed.
Excellent price, easily one of the best portable options under 100£, along with Senheiser Momentum and AKG K-451

AKG all the way, currently a deal on HUKD for 33 quid delivered from Amazon, I would highly, highly, highly recommend getting those. So. Good.
A deal but sadly it's white. Are these good for indoor use?

These are high resolution headphones, you will not find anything with the frequency range these have for under £100, and certainly not akg or sens

For you, yes. For the rest in the room, not so much. No special isolation.

fact that rrp is £39.99 not that they once were £150 as put on title
most ppl did not read comments and judged this deal based on that false info
Can anyone comment if these would be any good for Vive do they hold on your head well?
Can the 3.5mm cable be removed and replaced?
'On Ears headphones'

Not gonna put em on yer backside, are ya.

They are quite loose, as they are designed for comfort
And yes the cable is changeable
It comes with 2 cables as standard, 1 with mic/remote and one without. They are great quality cables

I don't know, but at least the heading was accurate .... "Pointless comment"

'On Ears headphones'Not gonna put em on yer backside, are ya.



the 'on ear' comment was to make clear they're not 'over ear' type headphones. If you're struggling to understand 'on ear' headphones sit on the ear, 'over ear' the headphones sit on your face and your ear are inside the cups.

On that Note I have a pair of AKG 460s (same as 450/1 just 'special editions') They are a few years old now and wearing out a bit. I also damaged the cable slightly. Would you recommend sticking with another AKG pair over these sonys? I'm mainly talking about sound quality (mainly heavy metal/classical/techno) and comfort. Anything else I do not consider as much (looks, features, mic capablity, noise cancelling, gold plated, carry cases.

TLDR: These or stick with AKGs?
Make sure you're comfortable with on ears, I returned mine straight away as they were tiny.

Will Argos accept returns once opened for ill fit? Already put mine on eBay as they slide off my head if I look up or down must have too big of a head

Get the AKGs man, the bass is great, clear treble, rlly loud, decent noise supression, and so comfy and slim, my brother has these and picked them up for about this a while back, feel flimsy and ok sound quality but nothing like AKGs
Screw the AKG K451/ 452. Get some Meizu hd50 from Gearbest.com. I had the AKG but the meizu beat them hands down for comfort, sound quality and overall quality. They have full Android control (volume and skip button). Currently £35 in flash sale.
I found a very interesting good in Gearbest:Original Meizu HD50 Hi-Fi Headphones m.gearbest.com/hea…tml

Pointless analogy


ohhh you did not get it either?
Can anyone comment on the noise cancellation on these?

I currently use Sony ZX600 (also bought from a deal here) in an office environment and I can have these as loud as I wish without any noise leaking.

Hi there, After reading your comment on: Meizu hd50 I'm trying to buy the Meizu HD50 headphones but wondering how you get them for £35 as for me its coming up £40.15
Also, I've never used GearBest before is it a legit and safe site to buy from? Any help would much appreciated

34.27 when you change the warehouse to us-la
I just bought some in Black from argos for £29.99. I have a pair of Bose Sound True on ear and these blow them away. Really well made, high quality headphones. Very clear, strong bass (not boomy) really HQ. Amazing for £89. For £29.99 they are an absolute bargain. Looking around the high street/supermarkets £20-£30 buys a rubbish pair of headphones. These cost over £100 new and you can tell. Even the box looks well made.

I have tried Grado, B+W P5, Bose Quiet comfort and these for the money are a steel!

I forgot to mention, they isolate noise quite well (the leather pads are similar to the Bose, possibly using memory foam).

Buy!!
