You get what you pay for. Not bad, not the best.First, they are very light. When wearing them, you can barely feel them. The ears pads do not squeeze your head like it's trying to pop it. They sit comfortabley "on" the ears. The only drawback is that the ear cups do not turn to match any angle your ears may produce.Second, they do not isolate outside sounds. The ear cups are a mesh with foam filling. The mesh allows outside surrounding noise to be heard easily. This may be an advantage if you wish to converse while hunting, or if someone yells at you from a distance. But you in no way feel you have cut out the outside world, so to speak.Thirdly the sounds from the detector are clear a crisp. Sounding as well as my Killer Bees used to. The main drawback on the ears cuffs is the volume control. The know is the large center peice you see in the pic, with little ridges and an indentation to place a finger. If you wear gloves, the volume is close it impossible to adjust. It doesn't move easily to begin with, and one must use a tight thumb and forfinger to push down and turn it as t only sticks up 1/8 of an inch above the actual earcup. Also, the wires coming off of the head strap to the earcups may bother some. A tiny thin coiled wire that looks like if you accidentally caught it on something, might break easier than most.Even after critiquing them, I do like them. They are more comfortable than my Treasure Wise and Bounty Hunter, but not as comfortable on the ears as my Killer Bees (though the Treasure Ears are much lighter and deserves kudos for what they provide in such a light package).
