I had seen these headphones advertised on Facebook and reviewed on some different blogs, so when they became available on Woot! for the fire sale price of $60, I snagged them. I had been wanting a pair of headphones that I could wear while using my laptop at work, but I also wanted to make sure that I spent enough money to get decent sound quality. These Sonic headphones are really terrific. I love their style, and to my novice ears, the audio quality is excellent. They also don't eliminate so much outside noise that I wouldn't notice a colleague knocking on my door or addressing me from the doorway. For the money, these Sonic Over Ear headphones really do rock.
