The sound on these headphones is a bit tinny. However, if you are in a pinch, they are great to have on hand. My problem with it is that I had a hard time hearing my recordings with these. The ear buds are not very good. The head phones are better and work fine for listening to my on line class. The speaker box...well I expected it to work a bit better than it did. Then again, I may have had too high an expectation for the price that I paid for these.
