Great value and good design 9/23/2014
Sterling from Charlotte, NC
The best feature of this set of headphones is that it doesn't have a hard-wired cord like others. There's always a point where the cord will either wear out, get pulled out accidentally, or in some cases get chewed through by an overactive kitten. It comes with two cords, one very sturdy and around 6 ft long, the other is shorter and thinner for use with something like a cell-phone or MP3 player.
There are many good points:
1. It seals on my ears very well and cuts outside noise very effectively.
2. We can always replace cords connecting the earphone and the laptop.

Headphones replaced promptly 7/26/2014
The headphones I received were defective, but Monoprice replaced them in a timely manner to my satisfaction.
Sturdy and inexpensive 7/3/2014
Better than expected. Great sound, sturdy manufacture and a nice long cord. Best price for this good of quality I have seen.
Amazing headphones! 5/19/2014
Jeff from Fitchburg, MA
These headphones sound just as good as ones costing over $100! They are the best value for the money and I highly recommend them to anyone! What's really nice about these headphones is that the cord is detachable and even includes two different ones (a thin short one, and a long thick one). They may not be the most comfortable pair of headphones for wearing for long periods of time, but the sound quality is amazing!
Robert Rogers from Angleton, Texas
I was not disappointed when I first used these headphones. The fit was great and the ear pieces cover my ears comfortably. They really block out other noise. I especially like the way the cord is detachable. It is simple to replace with a new cord, and they came with two as well. One it shorter and thinner and one is longer and heavier. Adding the 1/8" to 1/4" adapter is a plus. I could not be more pleased with my purchase.

These headphones are seriously fantastic, there is nothing but good things to say about them, absolutely fantastic.
Awesome for the price 2/1/2014
Roger from Mobile AL
These headphones are just out of this world clear. For the price I just don't know of anything close to them. A friend of my put me on to these and he was correct.
Excellent value 1/16/2014
Even though these headphones get excellent reviews, I was a bit hesitant to get these since lots of reviewers mention that the cups are a bit small. Well, my ears don't completely fit inside the openings of the cups, but nevertheless the headphones are extremely comfortable, even after 30-40 minutes of use. I haven't used them for longer yet.
As for the sound quality, it definitely lived up to all the reviews.
great value for the price 1/9/2014
The Monoprice 8323 in turn of sound quality in my opinion is on par of many $300 headphone out there that included (Bower&Wilkins P5 ,even P7, Beyerdynamic DT880/990,etc) , if don't mind the material that went into the making of the ear cushion that might make you feel uncomfortable while wear them(i feel just fine,other reviewer bet the difference), it also look and feel similarly with the popular Audio-Technica Ath-m50 which priced at over $100,overall great value for budget conscious buyer.
Sound great, but are not the most comfortable 1/4/2014
John from Grass Valley, Ca
I bought these headphone based on the recommendations from Patrick Norton from Tekzilla. I must say he was absolutely on the mark concerning the sound quality per the cost for these headsets. The only complaint I have from these is they are not comfortable for long term use. I can keep them on for the length of a movie but after the top padding feels like it is driving spikes into my head. I have found some mods for these that are supposed to ease that discomfort and will try them out. This may change my performance and overall satisfaction.
very Good sound for a great price 1/1/2014
These headphones are excellent for the price. They are not as good as my $80 Sennheisers - but for the money they are an excellent buy. I particularly like the detachable cord so that if it gets damaged it can be replaced. Other reviewers have complained about comfort. In my opinion they are very comfortable and light - much lighter than my Sennheisers. These headphones sound better after they have been broken in for a bit.
Very decent build for the price 1/1/2014
Nice bass and very good build quality for the price. Highly recommend.

The sound quality of this headphone is better than the branded high priced headphone.
Quality Product at a Great Price 12/23/2013
Quality sound and craftsmanship at an affordable price. Fits nicely around ears. Extra extension audio cable is a plus as well. Nice product.
Great performance 12/20/2013
Guest009988 from Dallas, TX
I really love this headphone. Quality of construction is superb. You can see that cords, cushions and the plastic is made very well with quality plastic. The cups will fit in your ear perfectly that it limits outside noise to a great extent. Sound quality is extremely good with enough bass delivered. There is nothing wrong I could point, overall worth every penny.
Decent headphones 12/19/2013
J. Le from Seattle, WA
Headphones are of good quality and sound good, not as good as Bose but you're not paying Bose prices either.
Great buy for the price 12/19/2013
Rick Harvey from Las Vegas, NV
I compared this headset to my Shure SM840 and as far as the frequency response, it came pretty close. As-far-as comfort goes it is unfair to compare this headset to the Shure. I would say that if you wear eyeglasses as I do, don't plan to wear these for longer that 30 minutes at-a-time. You might be able to wear them longer if you don't wear glasses.
Ok and good audio 12/18/2013
dlf from Walnut Creek, CA
Existing posts that these are not the most comfortable head "cans" have some basis in fact. They are a bit tight and the cushions are somewhat stiff. Audio quality and design is otherwise fine.
They are far from unwearable, but the mfg could have used a more comfortable padding material such as thermal foam used for pillows.
The best value headphone 12/16/2013
I owned a lot of headphone. This is second best headphone I ever own. This headphone is better than sennheiser hd650,shure e5c,shure e3c,shure e4c,logitech g930. Only the dennon ahd-7000 is better than this headphone.
Not bad for the price I paid. 12/4/2013
xgalaxy from canton, MI
The music is little harsh on years. If you can buy below $20 its worth it but at any thing above is not worth it. They are comfortable and built tough and you dont nered to worry in that aspect. good luck.
Good headphone 12/4/2013
Sounds great for my PC. Like the detachable cable.
Best Deal! 12/4/2013

Good headphones 12/3/2013
Bob from South Carolina
This is a fine set of headphones for casual listening. The quality is good and they perform well. The ear cushions are a little stiff so wearing them for a long time might cause fatigue. The feature I really like is that they plug in at the headset instead of having a fixed cable connection. Every set of headphones I've ever had has failed due to the hard connection at the headset. Not a problem with these. It also gives me the option to use a longer or shorter cable (2 included).
Superb for Travel 12/3/2013
Ed from Brooklyn, NY
I bought these for one reason only, to listen to the music and watch movies during flights. They do what I need them to do. They very well isolating outside noise and sounds great. The whole design made for convenience and comfort during travel, swivel makes them convenient for packaging, the wire is not fixed so you it does not tangles and could be replaced if broken, they are covering ears and the padding is well made. The best part was the price.
The BEST headphones you can get at this price. 11/26/2013
These are the best budget headphones, period. If you want something better, you'll have to pay at least 3x the price These sound great. It is a little uncomfortable at first, but after a few weeks of use, they feel much more comfortable. This was most noticeable when I got a second pair of these; the pair that had been "broken in" for a few weeks felt much more comfortable.
You get what you pay for 11/23/2013
Alexander from Goleta, CA
These headphones offer great sound for the price. They are almost as good as my Sennheiser HD280PRO set. Far better than entry level headphones for sure. However, a few important little issues prevent me from recommending them for daily use. First, their selling point with the detachable cable is their biggest weakness. The problem is the jack on the headphone unit itself. You have to twiddle the connector to get it just right so you get stereo sound, otherwise you only get one of the channels. Second, the headband does not have sufficient insulation so your head begins to hurt after some use. Third, they press a bit too firm on the head for it to become uncomfortable after a while. You can probably use them for an hour without noticing discomfort, but two hours is a bit too much with them. Finally, as others have also mentioned, they do tend to warm your ears a bit.
Not the most comfortable but good all-around. Gre 11/19/2013
I'm not a sound-fanatic or engineer but these sound good to my lay-person ear when I listen to music or watch movies. They could be more comfortable. I have a small head but these headphones aren't tight so much as shallow. The headpiece doesn't arc very high so the top pushes on my head. Adjusting the ear pieces causes them to curve in a bit as well as down, so it doesn't really help. Not wearable all-day by any means but otherwise great, especially for the money.
It Is As Advertised. 11/16/2013
These Monoprice Headphones are out of this world. Amazing Hi-Fidelity clear crystal sound. The Headphones themselves don't pinch my ears and the material around the phones is really smooth so when I remove from my head they don't leave a mark around my ears. I really truly recommend them.
Absolute Steal 10/30/2013
I honestly think these sound better than the expensive headphones I bought them to replace. Very speedy delivery.
A Quality Product 10/7/2013
A very reasonably priced headphone for general usage. Would purchase again.
Best for the price. 4/8/2013
Order was received quickly and the headphones sound like the best for the price. The make is a little on the cheap side but the sound quality is unmatched in this price range.
Bargain at Twice the Price 1/8/2013
Great headphones at a great price. They do get a little warm, as many circumaural often do. But these sound great and compare well with more costly headphones.
