I happened to listen to a pair of these @ local Best Buy. On sale for $99.99 ($50 off Retail). I really liked the sound for the $$. I think the cord is a bit flimsy though, but for a portable device they play very loudly which many headphones do not. Definitely built for portable device impedance.

Now...on a refurb headphone, what about the pads being 100% new vs. partially used???

There is one 3.5mm plug so this will work fine with iPads. I didn't check specific models, but I assume the play/pause and volume controls work on all iPads.

You can use this with android phones, but the on-headphone volume controls will not work. You can still use the play/pause button to play/pause music and to answer and end calls. You will have to control the volume using your phone's volume controls though.

how do these compare to Bose noise canceling?

These are NOT Noise Canceling, but they do a decent job of isolation. To me, Bose are overpriced and really have a "mushy" sound.

At high volumes, these can bleed out just wee bit (if that matters to you!).

They have very FIRM bass, not overly pushed like Beats, but a solid bass with great mids and highs as well.

Really a solid sounding headphone for the $$ IMHO.

I tested these today and am deciding $69 for refurb or $99 for new (w/ 2 year warranty) vs. 90 day on refurb...

I own a pair of these. They are my go to headphones. I have the Klipsch M40 headphones and the Klipsch X10's. These are better than the M40's but they are not noise cancelling. They do a good job of keeping sound out. I compared them to a friend's Beats. We both agreed that the bass was still thumpy and had a clearer bass than the bass heavy Beats.
For the price, they are worth it. They are better than headphones twice the price.

I have the Reference Series version of these, and they work fine with my android. I have to adjust volume from the phone instead of the inline controls, but the headphones are awesome.

One pet peeve...why is Sony the only manufacturer that puts a full 90 degree connector on the plug? The straight plugs seem more vulnerable.

These were my favorite headphones I had until my dad vacuum'd up the cord and broke em.

Sound is incredible (for the money). I'd buy this one but its refurbished, and I'm way too germafobic to buy used headphones.

how important is noise canceling capability ?

Noise Cancelling is beneficial on a plane, train, loud car, or noisy environment. It allows you to hear the audio much clearer. Personally, I have both kinds and find myself happy with the Image One's over my Klipsch Noise Cancelling headphones.

I used to own these before moving up to the Reference One's because I wanted the extra bass. I would highly, highly, highly recommend these. As previous wooters have said the bass is extremely pronounced with significant thump while maintaining excellent clarity in the mids and the highs. Inner fidelity has a datasheet here:

It is of course Memento, as in a keepsake or reminder, not "Momento," as in (I'm guessing) one of the lesser-known super heroes. That's all I have to say.

Does anyone have an opinion how they would sound for listening to dialogue based material such as movies and tv shows through a Kindle Fire? I only ask cause the review indicated the bass was emphasized and the mids toned down a bit so I was wondering if dialogue would suffer. Thanks for any thoughts.

Why is the tax different when you cycle through the shipping options? Is the cost of shipping taxed too?

I've owned a pair of these for a little over a year now. Highly recommend them.

Depends on the laws for your state, but in many states, yes, sales tax is charged on the shipping when the buyer pays for it.

I got my refurbs about a year ago from Amazon for around $30 - the sound is great. My son got his at the same time BRAND NEW for $79, same place!

I own these and love them, and am re-gifting a pair of unopened Beats Solo HD rather than switching from that, to these.

I'm sorry. Our system checks with the FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) warehouse nearest you and if it can't fulfill it in time, it won't process expedited shipping. Same for me.

You might try later in the day. Right now, it's a tight window to meet the shipping deadline for two-day which is about 11am Central. Once that passes, it may work since they'll have 24 hours before the next deadline.

No promises but it's worth a try.

I bought a pair of these from Amazon earlier in the year for $89, and they are great. I find them far better than Beats or Bose. They work great on my Macbook, iPhone, and iPad.

I bought these at Big Box for $149 and went on an airplane to give the true test - of hearing over the engine roar while also not having my seating partner hear my movie or songs. These are probably refurbs that are and were PERFECT. I was so angry that I could not hear Downton Abbey that I was ready to return them when I discovered ....(wait for it) ... that my iPAD settings had max volume set!!! Once I fixed my OWN problems I discovered these headphones - with volume control and mute on the wire - are SOOOOO worth it. $69.00 is like half price!!! Come in a nice zip box too. P.S. Don't leave on the seat or in the magazine pouch.

How comfortable are these headphones?

I'm currenly using a pair of Sennheiser HD-280s, which have a nice sound. However my ears are shaped oddly and they end up hurting after an hour or two of action.

To compare the sound of these to BOSE does them a disservice. BOSE sells a lot of stuff because they market like Proctor & Gamble. But high quality sound? Please.

You won't likely find a single source to do a comparison listen, but if you could you'd immediately hear the difference. And unfortunately for BOSE, their sound gets more tiresome after you've lived with them for a while.

If you love BOSE then ignore the above - you're a lost cause, victim of their marketing, or do not possess discriminating listening. 'Sound' is typically personal, but not in this comparison.

I’m looking at your avatar and you are correct, your ears are shaped oddly. :þ

I have a big head and I wear these headphones for hours at a time at work without issue.

Not buying because description says Momento instead of Memento.

Haha, just kidding. Not buying because if a company can't be bothered to put at least a year warranty on a product, they obviously don't think it will last. Why would I?

Wearing these right now! Love these headphones so much! I just wish the controls and microphone worked better (or at all in the microphones case) with my Galaxy SIII.

Having a working mic is a must for me. What is the problem with the mic with your Android phone?

While you could listen to xBox, if the connectors are the same, but you'd need a separate microphone to chat.

Edit: I didn't see the mic and remote in the Specs. I don't own an xBox, and they don't show the connectors, but I think the case image onthe woot page shows extra tips.
