I am not an audiophile but I can definitely compare to my other headphones. I have Bose QC35 which my wife now has and the Sony WH1000XM3 which I currently use. In fairness with the price of the headphones, these are good and if you are into bass, this might work for you. The highs and mids, to me, sounds a bit muffled, sometimes bright and sometimes cracking, depending on the music. The noise cancelling is superb and the battery life Is also good. I gave it 5 stars despite the sound quality is not so good, but the price is appropriate I think, and did I mention the bluetooth and ANC. I bought this for my son for his remote learning and it serves its purpose isolating background noise. So would I personally use it if I have not tried the other headphones I have, probably yes. I recommend it for people who are looking for budget and bang for buck headphones.
