The sound quality is good, and they are comfortable enough. Your ears can get hot on hot days. Another drawback is the cord. It is thick and very long. If you are planning to use this with an MP3 player you’ll have to roll up the cord and band it with a rubber band.
They are HUGE. But I like that look. Like a Brooklyn DJ. Most of my friends think they are bad-arse HUGE and like them.
I have not had the “flaking” issue others have experienced. I wear mine 40 hours a week in tough work conditions (I sweat a lot and work in a cloud of wood dust) and they are still like new (perhaps the flaking is caused by acidity from the skin. Some people have more acidity than others).
I have small ears so they fit nicely in the sound hole. My work environment is very loud and these headphones do a good job of blocking external noise. I listen to radio news mostly, and these phones reproduce voice sound very well.
Before these I had an over-the-ear, noise-canceling style which did not block external noise well, did not reproduce radio voice well, and were painful to wear more than 5 hours continuously. However, they kept my ears and head cooler than these Everglides.
