Most likely better than the $4 ones at Dollarama but that's like burnt food is better than poo.

Pain? Can you elaborate? Is it only good to wear for only short period of time? < 20mins?

Lots of review on these 8323, they are considered one of the best budget headphones, originally was made under Kickers brand so they are decent and a steal for the price. Therefore, they shouldn’t be compared to dollar store phones.

They are indeed the same as the 8323, just branded with the prime cables logo.

The sound quality of the 8323 is decent considering the price. They really put to shame some of the more expensive headphones and that's why it's popular among audiophiles as a great budget headphone. Overall, it delivers a balanced sound signature -- maybe a little bit of an extra kick in the low end to give a warmer feeling, excellent mids, and okay highs (you can't expect everything at this price point, the Monoprice 8323s typically go for $15.99 USD).

Despite sounding good, the biggest issue with these headphones has always been comfort. The folks who enjoy the sound signature end up modding them for comfort. The first thing that gets recommended is to change the earpads, which makes a big difference.

The Brainwavz HM5 Oval Earpads seem to be the go-to earpads for this headphone (see https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-revi ... B00MFDT894 for pics). The irony is the pads cost about the same as the headphones themselves when on sale, but it's a worthy upgrade for comfort.

Everyone hears differently and it really depends on what type of sound signature you're looking for.

Audiophiles typically prefer a more neutral/flat sound signature while the average consumer lean towards headphones with more bass.

The 8323s are considered flat sounding, so I suspect that anyone who has a preference for more power in the low end will be disappointed. Also, the stock pads have been reported to dampen the treble a bit in addition to being hard/uncomfortable.

I agree absolutely. I bought a pair years ago due to
some glowing reviews. They are objectively awful. I use mine as head warmers in the winter and that’s it. I suspect a lot of people are commenting without ever buying these.

To simply say it's "bad" or "awful" isn't a whole lot to go on and doesn't add much to the thread. Try to be more specific to help readers understand why they might not be good.

If you're a basshead, then yeah, you're probably not going to like these headphones.
