They are just really cheap.
Bad audio quality, cheap build quality, and they are usually pretty pricey. You can usually get a lot better headphones for much cheaper.

Check out the AD700's
or some ultrasonnes

I wasn't kidding when I said everything. Bjork, Lil Wayne, Chelsea Grin, UnderOath, Sigur Ros, Led Zeppelin, Lady Gaga, Pink Floyd, tons more. Just to give you an idea of how big of a music selection I have.

Yes, I plan on gaming pretty often. I wanted to start playing WoW and eventually grab BF3 for the PC. I don't need headphones that are ridiculously expensive just to say I have them. I want something with above decent audio quality.

mmm
get the JVC RX 700 ~35$

or the AD700 if you prefer gaming more than music (those have very modest bass) 80-90$

or the Ultrasone 550Pro 150 $ those are very good in every way gaming, music, movies
