Shame, you would think something that oddly coloured would have something up its sleeve. Companies just dont seem to know what good sound is these days!

Yeah, after reading a bit about them I had quite high hopes. If they had decent treble then they'd be a lot more bearable as the bass does indeed cave your head in.

The colour is the main issue with it.

As you can see, the G.I Rasta's have a frequency range of 100-18,000Hz, an impedance of 50ohms and a maximum input power of 400mW. On paper this seems to make the headphones sound quite restrictive, especially when you consider that the headset we are comparing the G.I Rasta's today has a frequency response of 10-27,000Hz and a maximum power input of 1000mW.
Once I read that, I pretty much guessed these would fail to impress... The words steaming and turd spring to mind!
